Parades, Princesses and Palaces OH MY!

Still day two at Disney. As soon as we make it through the ticket gate(Key to the World a whole 'nother post)we walk into a Parade. YES!!! This is why I love Disney. Move it, shake it, celebrate it parade. It felt like the whole park were welcoming OUR arrival.
We took a few photos including some photo pass shots(another post)...
and guess who we ran into.... Granddaddy!!!
No seriously we knew he was coming. He met us at Midway airport for our change of planes. He found a nice adult hotel to stay in off property and spent half his time with us and half his time enjoying the Dis in his own way. We rode some rides. Barnstormer was a hit, but hold on to your hat...and your toddler! I had planed to get so many yummy snacks but as hot as it was all we wanted was water and fruit bars. and then it was time for a nap. After our break and a change into Royal attire we made it back to MK in time to do a few more things including hit up Bibbidy Bobbidy Boutique and then it was time for dinner at the palace.
This experience and planning may need it's very own blog post. We met many, many princesses and had a meal fit for...royalty.
Our dinner was over as the clock struck to signal the Wishes fireworks show...it was magical. As we walked out the castle we saw the droves and droves of people who had been camping out for the last few hours waiting on the fireworks show. Here we are making our way down the palace steps and under the rope...we can't go any further. Oh well. I guess we'll just have to stay put here at the front of the castle until the fireworks are over. Sorry camper-outers. We win!! Front row for Wishes fireworks. I'm kidding. I honestly had no idea it would work out that way. Again I felt a sense of great grace and thankfulness because our experience was so special...it was Awesome...Magical even.
