This year Adele and Gina invited us to spend some time enjoying the decorations, and specifically, to see the Osborne Family Lights at Disney Hollywood Studios.
So, Day 1 was spent at the Magic Kingdom after a stop at the Grand Floridian to meet up with Adele and Matt and to see the decorations there. We enjoyed some warm chestnuts before boarding the monorail to the Magic Kingdom. We met up with Gina at the Be Our Guest dining room to have lunch. Then a leisurely stroll around the park. It was Steve's first visit there, so we had to do a few of our favorite rides: the Haunted Mansion, the holiday Jungle Cruise, Pirates of the Caribbean, and the Thunder Mountain Railroad. Unfortunately, Splash Mountain ran into a problem and shut down just as we got there. We had a really fun time meeting the talking Mickey! What a hoot! An ice cream treat, watching the street dance party, then out until the next day.
