Disney 2009 - Day two

We were super-excited and woke up early on our first morning in Disney.  We decided to put on our swimsuits and check out the pool at the hotel.  
This is the Volcano at the pool
At night, the volcano lights up and has a mist that comes from the top, there is also a slide that starts at the top, goes through the volcano and drops you into the pool below.

This is the beach outside our hotel and the view of the Castle in the distance.

After swimming at the hotel we went to Magic Kingdom.  I was finally able to capture the picture I have had in my head for sooo long.  This is in memory of out baby Jesse.

We ate lunch in Cinderella's Castle - before lunch, we had a photo shoot with Cinderella

During lunch we were visited by Snow White



and Jasmine

Olivia got a birthday cupcake and everyone sang Happy Birthday to her

Jack learned to swallow swords in the Castle

We visited a knight in shining armor before leaving the castle.

We spent the rest of the day playing in Magic Kingdom.  We enjoyed several attractions: Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin where we boarded a space cruiser and used our laser cannons to blast away the Evil Emperor Zurg; The Barn Stormer at Goofy's Wiseacre Farm (little airplane roller coaster that busts through a barn); Brian was "that guy" at Monster's Inc. laugh floor; Peter Pan's flight; Olivia was able to keep her hands up on the Big Thunder Mountain roller coaster; we spun until we got dizzy in the tea cups - these were just some of our favorites!
We definitely wore ourselves out before leaving the park!
