Magic Kingdom

Today was our final day at Disney! We did a full day at the Magic Kingdom (Raul lasted from when we left the hotel at about 9 until when we got back at around 6:30!). Our first stop was a Pooh and friends character breakfast within the park. Raul liked getting to meet with Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, and Eeyore. And with the weather being questionable today, we were glad to have a chance to meet with some of the characters inside since the characters seem to have been his favorite part of the trip! We did end up getting Raul a poncho to keep his bandages from getting soaked during the rest of our day since I had changed them last night, but it only rained hard a few times luckily!

This time he was really into the rides, especially the Speedway and Small World. There is a pink camel in Small World (one of his favorite animals), and we had to ride it multiple times to see it! We also found a giant gold camel by the Aladdin ride, and two camels on a circus train sculpture in the circus area. We went on almost all the rides I had thought he would like. We did the "Jingle" Cruise, which we had not done the night of the Christmas party, and which he liked. They change up their jokes and add decorations around the ride to make it Christmas themed. The only ride we did that he thought was too scary was the Seven Dwarves Mine Train, which we did the night of the party. He saw it, and was convinced he would like it, but then thought it was too fast (he liked the part within the mine, though). Overall, he did much prefer Disney rides to general carnival/theme park rides.

We also saw two showings of the Main Street dance party (which was just a parade today as it was raining on and off, so they didn't stop by the castle), and the big parade in the afternoon. They do a great job of giving special attention to children in the wheelchair seating, so Raul had MANY characters coming up to him to dance and give high fives during the big parade! Despite the rain on and off, we had a very successful day at the park!



  1. Oh, Raul, I am so jealous that you got to meet Piglet! He is my favorite character EVER! I'm glad you had such a good time overall. Such wonderful memories <3

  2. What a lot of fun. :) Hope you and your family have a wonderfully blessed Thanksgiving.
