We had to leave our hotel at the crack of dawn (before 7am!!) to be at the Magic Kingdom for our pre-park opening breakfast. I love getting there early and being able to walk down a nearly empty Main Street with the castle in the distance.
Watching the train pull up to the Main Street Station for the first time that day. Our family on Main Street.
We stopped by the castle to get some pictures with Grandma and Grandpa before heading to breakfast. The "Partners" statue (originally from Disneyland but now replicated in all of the Disney parks).
Disney is definitely where dreams come true :)
We had an 8am reservation at Crystal Palace. The kids were all STARVING and quickly started filling their plates (and bellies!) before Pooh and Friends made their rounds. They all love buffets because they can try a little bit of everything and then go back for more of their favorites (like Mickey waffles!).
It's Eeyore!! We love Eeyore!! Well, most of us love Eeyore.
Luckily, she calmed down quickly and started eating her toes.
Meeting Piglet, Pooh and Tigger, too!!
After breakfast, it was time for rides!! Jungle Cruise is always a favorite-- where else can you see the backside of water?!
All the boys on Space Mountain!
Lexie was excited for Space Mountain but nervous for the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Grandma and Christopher smiling on It's a Small World.
We HAD to get Dole Whips for a snack during the Tiki Room line. Ellie LOVED the Dole Whip Float!
Splash Mountain-- Grandma stayed with Ellie so the rest of us could go-- and get SOAKED.
Chris & Nick waiting for Big Thunder Mountain. Ben with his DELICIOUS lunch at Be Our Guest. Grandpa & Ellie-- see, she doesn't cry EVERY time he holds her!
Tomorrowland Speedway-- If their speedway driving is any indication of how they'll drive a real car, Lexie will be the only one to get her drivers license.

That night, we went to the Tomorrowland Terrace Dessert Party. Unfortunately, it rained most of the time we were there so Tinkerbell didn't get to fly overhead like she usually does during the fireworks.
But we did get lots and lots of great desserts to enjoy before the fireworks.
Dessert deliciousness!! After dessert, we all went up to the railing to enjoy the fireworks (no pictures since it was raining pretty heavily) and then headed back to the hotel since everyone was exhausted.
