Magic Kingdom Recap & VLOG!

Hi everyone and happy Friday! I am so excited to have a non-exciting weekend :) LOL! After last weekend of going non-stop I am excited to relax, watch Gilmore Girls, drink coffee, and catch up on life. Can I get an amen? 
Today I am sharing a recap of my families trip to Magic Kingdom the day after the Disney Enchanted 10k race. This place just never gets old. If you want to see my top Disney World tips you can read here. Can I also just say it was so much fun wearing my medal around the parks. Tons of other runners were doing the same and we all congratulated each other, along with receiving congratulations from a ton of cast members. So uplifting!
We arrived a little after they opened and the park wasn't too packed. It got a lot busier as the day went on but the weather was beautiful and the lines weren't too outrageous.
We started by leisurely walking down Main Street and stopping in the Uptown Jewelers store. They have a big and beautiful Pandora store in there with a ton of Disney Parks Exclusive charms and jewelry. I started my Pandora bracelet when we went to Animal Kingdom, and was so excited to add to it this time too. I picked up the runDisney charm and the snow white dress charm. Now every time I look at my bracelet I am reminded of my race :) I love it! I didn't get a good picture of the individual charms but you can kind of see it in the picture above.
We then made our way down to the front of the castle to take about 75,641,000 pictures! 
We then found Buzz Lightyear and had a fun time meeting him before riding the Buzz Lightyear ride which is one of my families favorite. My mom won big time which she reminded us all through out the week.. sigh.

After my moms gloating, we stopped in the Monster Inc Laugh Floor which is always a good time. The show changes every time so it is always so funny to watch.
We all then had lunch at the Starlight Cafe which sells things like rotisserie chicken, hamburgers, pulled pork, macaroni and cheese, chicken nuggets, fries, etc... Disney of course was awesome about allergies. The rotisserie chicken meal that my parents got came with green beans and mashed potatoes and it was all gluten free (and delicious I was told). My sister and I got the bacon cheeseburger with a gluten free bun and fries. I love Disney.
We then made our way over to meet Drizella and Anastasia which are Cinderella's evil step sisters. This may have been the most fun 10 minutes EVER! My sister and I had the funniest conversation with them and laughed a ton. The pictures are some of my favorites too. Love these two!
My family then went to ride the teacups!! This is definitely my parents favorite (not!!). The plan was for my mom and dad to get their own teacup so they didn't have to spin as much as my sister and I liked to but the lady running the line asked all four of us to get in one teacup. This wasn't a problem when my sister and I were 5 and 7 but being 15 and 17 is a different story. The teacups look big but there is DEFINITELY not enough space for four adults knees in the middle. We got some good laughs though out of all of us spinning like crazy all crowded in this teacup :D
Gaston was next on our list of people to meet. He was beautiful and cocky, just like the Gaston we all know. 
My family had some time to burn before our next fast passes so we decided to take the little boat over to Tom Sawyer Island. It was shady but that's about the only thing great about it. If I were a nature-loving-12 year old boy scout I may have had more interest but there really is nothing other than a few picnic tables and stair case hikes. 

We road the boat back over to Frontierland so that my dad and I could ride Thunder Mountain Railroad (my favorite ride), and my mom and sister went to watch the Bear Jamboree. The Bear Jamboree is a classic for sure. Hey, it's air conditioned and doesn't ever have a wait so it's worth it :)
We all watched the Festival of Fantasy Parade which is an amazing parade! After that my family was hot and tired. We made our way to a show called the Enchanted Tiki Room. This makes the Bear Jamboree look amazing and modern. If you have seen the Bear Jamboree you know that isn't the case. My family spent the whole show holding back the laughter it was so cheesy and bad :) But again, air condition people. 
My sister and I then rode the Aladdin Magic Carpets which was fun!

We then made our way back to the Starlight Cafe to eat the exact same thing for dinner. I was stuck on cheeseburgers, I don't know why. After dinner, we went and enjoyed the Carousel of Progress. An oldie but a goodie. It is a rotating theater and is a cute show. It was ticking close to time for the Wishes Firework Spectacular so we decided to get some hot coffee and claim our seats for the show. A little tip, the area in front of the castle and down main street get VERY VERY crowded. My family claimed the benches along the water between Tomorrowland and the castle. It was the perfect spot to watch the fireworks away from the crowds. You can't hear the music as well but you get a beautiful view without standing shoulder to shoulder with smelly people who have been at the parks all day :) This show gives me goosebumps every time. I love where I live.
We skipped back to the car after a magical day! And I zonked out about 5 minutes into the car ride.

I vlogged a little bit of our day and you can watch it here!
I hope you enjoyed reading about our busy magical day! Hope to see you there soon :)



  1. So fun!! Disney is just the best :)
    xo, Syd

  2. That was just a cute vlog, Juliana! Would love if you did more of those. Glad to see you had fun!

    1. AH yay!! I am so glad you liked it!! I plan on doing several more this month when I go to more of the parks! Thanks for the sweet encouragement :)


  3. Ah, I love to watch free movies especially when I find a great website like this one. I watched cruella last night and it was just amazing, even if it's Disney production I see dark, action and good things in that movie.

  4. This commitment and sharing is what advertisers all around the word are endeavoring towards. Commitment is inconceivably significant on the grounds that it permits your crowd to give you criticism on, straightforwardly, what they need. The sharing that continues among your watchers is significant in light of the fact that it imitates your messages, now and then dramatically.


Go ahead and leave me a comment! I will get back to you as soon as I can!
