    Disney World trip day 5 – Magic Kingdom

    The Magic Kingdom is definitely my favourite park of the lot. We headed there on day 5 and it felt so good to be heading back to my favourite park. Arriving nice and early so that we could get a couple of rides done before the big queues hit; we got the monorail across from the car park which is always my preferred mode of transport. Day 5 was a super long day as we stayed late for Happily Ever After.

    What we got up to in the morning 

    First up we headed straight across to the Jungle Cruise, this ride always has crazy long queues throughout the day but we managed to walk straight on which was a bonus. We then headed over the Pirates of the Caribbean which is one of my mum’s favourite rides at the Magic Kingdom. Next up was our first fast pass of the day which was for my favourite ride; Splash Mountain! This has been my favourite ride for years and I still love it so much…

    Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah, Zip-A-Dee-A, My oh my, what a wonderful day! 🙂

    Next, we made the short walk across to Thunder Mountain which another one of my favourites at the Magic Kingdom, we also had a fast pass for this which meant no long queues. The Haunted Mansion was next on the list followed by a quick dash over to Space Mountain for our third fast pass.

    And in the afternoon 

    After stopping for a bite to eat we managed to get a fast pass for Buzz Lightyears Space Ranger Spin. Staying in Tomorrowland we then did the Carousel of Progress and the People Mover before using our next fast pass for the Tomorrowland Speedway.

    After rushing around like madmen we decided to go and watch Mickey’s Philarmagic and have a sit-down. This show has a real place in my heart! I still remember the first time I watched it as a child and I was completely blown away by the graphics. After a little rest, we went a did Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid. What a lovely ride it was, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it as a fully grown adult haha.

    We were all feeling pretty tired by this point so we headed to the railroad and went on a trip around the park. It was so much fun to just sit back and relax and take in the view. After a bit of chill out time, we headed over to It’s a Small World before heading for some dinner and getting a place for Happily Ever After.

    Where we ate 

    For lunch and dinner, we actually ate at Cosmic Rays Starlight Cafe. Now I have no idea why we ate at the same place twice but we did haha. I, of course, opted for a kids meal! I had a burger for lunch and chicken nuggets for dinner. SO HEALTHY HAHA! We also stopped at the Mainstreet bakery during the day and I had a chocolate chip cookie!

    Happily Ever After 

    Words cannot even describe how incredible Happily Ever After was. I was practically in tears. Disney shows always hold a very special place in my heart and I know that this one will forever.

    Happily ever after

    Hope you enjoyed reading about day 5!
