Maya's Magic Kingdom

It CAN be done! You CAN take a 6 month old baby to Disney World and have a great time! Wow. We were at Magic Kingdom from 9:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. yesterday. Yes, that's from open to close. It was a great time. Here's a rundown of what we did (in case you're curious - if not, please ignore the following):

9:00 - park and Monorail to Magic Kingdom
9:30-12:30 Rides:
Haunted Mansion
Peter Pan
It's a Small World
Space Mountain (Kevin only!)
Buzz Lightyear
Carousel of Progress
People Mover

12:30 - Lunch (hotdogs and giant pretzels - oh, and harvest vegetables for Maya)
1:00 - 3:00 More rides!
Jungle Cruise
Tiki Lounge
Pirates of the Carribean

3:00 Disney Parade (Maya fast asleep)
4:00 More rides!
Train around Disney
Disney's Toontown (where we got pics of Maya with Mickey and Minnie)
It's a Small World (again)
Buzz Lightyear (again)
The Hall of Presidents

6:45 Monorail and back to the hotel (screaming Maya)

By the time we got back to the hotel, we had a seriously sleepy Maya. She took a tubby, played a little, and it was off to dreamland. She had a very long and exhausting day, but she was a gem. I mean, she barely whined, cried, or fussed at all. She took 3 short naps and played all day. What a good girl!!!

"Just waiting for Mickey and Minnie!"

"It was worth the wait!"

"Mommy, is that our house?"

"Wait! I'm not totally in the picture!"

"This Buzz Lightyear ride is awesome, Mommy!"

"Daddy, you are so comfy."

"This parade is amazing!"

Thank you, thank you thank you for all the wonderful photos. It is hard to tell which of the three of you is having the best time. Why does it surprise you that that little beauty is enjoying herself? You are going nonstop and showing her a wonderful time! Continue to enjoy!!!

Great Pics, Maya looks like she is really enjoying the vacation. Although everyday is a vacation for Maya as long as Mommy and Daddy are with her.

I can't believe she wasn't scared of the big characters. Does she like the pool? I hope the rest of the vacation is great.

What a little princess! I love the guy in the background of the picture of you with Maya on your shoulders--he looks pretty fierce with the Mickey ears on.

Oh what fun you guys are having. I can't believe how Maya is getting so cute and big. I love the picture of her "tanning" LOL.
