the long easter holiday weekend allowed us to spend three full days enjoying the disney world parks. since it was ryan's first time to disney world, it felt only right to start off with the magic kingdom, so we kicked off our park experience on friday by going to the magic kingdom. we spent the entire day there, from 7:30am until midnight.
it's amazing how much is still the same and hasn't changed over the years, yet there were a ton of new things too. thank goodness for the fast pass system which allowed us to get on every ride we wanted to ride and to see every attraction that we wanted to see. it was huge time saver and we wouldn't have been able to accomplish so much in the park in just one day without it!
one of the things we loved about our trip was that we bought the memory maker photo pass package. there are photographers all over the park who are there to take your pictures in front of so many great spots, which is especially wonderful when you are traveling with just two people and don't want to keep asking random strangers to take photos of you so that you can both be in the picture. the package also gives you the photos from several of the rides too! it turned out to be worth every penny!
we had an absolute blast on friday in the magic kingdom! here are a combination of photos we snapped and photos from the disney photographers from our day in the magic kingdom . . .
