Everly and the Magic Kingdom [part II]

a first trip to Disneyland is pretty magical
even if you are too young to remember it
that is why we photographed the experience pretty thoroughly
I do believe that starting young with Disneyland is key
to really loving the park as an adult [I think I was about two my first visit]
so here are Everly's firsts - Disneyland edition
first ride in Disneyland - Jungle Cruise
our cruise captain was very sweet with E, and since
we were the last tour of the evening, there were very few people on board
and she spared us all the gunshots that might have sent Everly over the edge
instead, we got an animated "bang, bang" from our enthusiastic cast member
first ride in Fantasyland - Peter Pan [E slept through the whole flight]
first ride in California Adventure - Toy Story Mania
Everly was hanging out in the Baby Bjorn on this ride
and I was hoping she was going to slow down the Mr. from getting such 
a high score, unfortunately, he still beat me by a few thousand
first meal in Disneyland - The Plaza Inn on Main Street
even though Everly wasn't joining in on the eating exactly
this was still her first meal in the park
and man, was it a good one
half a fried chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, and a biscuit for $13
considering we were in the park, I would say not too shabby of a meal for the price
E really like the parade as we walked by
talk about amazing stimulation for a little one, she was in awe of it all
and as you can see, I was really into her reactions
first character - Donald Duck [Everly's great-grandma's favorite character]
first princess Everly met - Snow White
and as it turned out, Snow White was the only character that Everly smiled for
so, we are going to say that Snow White is Everly's favorite Disney character
at least for now
the day we spent in the park was mostly for pictures and a few rides
the little lady has ridden so far:
Jungle Cruise, It's a Small World [holiday], Dumbo, Peter Pan, Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, Toy Story Mania and visited Mickey and Minnie's houses
for a first trip, I would say it was a success


  1. AWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!! Sounds like a lot of fun!

  2. That little Mickey suit is one of the cutest things I've ever seen! Love it!

    1. thanks - I couldn't help myself! Having a dressed up baby in disneyland just adds to the fun :)
