We headed over to Magic Kingdom for a beautiful start to the President’s Day Weekend. The sun was shining and the crowds were out.

As soon as we exited the Monorail, we spotted the advertisements for Toy Story 4 and Kim Possible. I’m really excited for Toy Story 4!

We found this awesome Cast Member building a house of cards at the Tomorrowland Speedway. The creativity and skill involved is pretty impressive.

It’s early enough in the day we can appreciate a little “space” around the typically crowded areas.

Speaking of space, the line for Space Mountain extends out towards the Astro Orbiter. I think I’ll just hang here with the Tomorrowland palm trees.

Who can resist a gift shop? Not me. Maybe I need a new phone case. “Irish I Was A Jedi” seems pretty appropriate for me.

Or the shamrock and Stormtrooper print might be nice for St. Patrick’s Day.

Phone cases

If you’re not feeling the seasonal styles, we spotted some of the new classic attractions phone cases. We only found the Magic Kingdom themed cases here, but there are more classic attractions offered from D-Tech on Demand at Disney Springs.

Construction on TRON hasn’t changed much since our last visit.

The crowds were pretty heavy throughout the park. The recently refurbished Peter Pan’s Flight had a 105 minute wait early in the day. Peter Pan’s Flight almost always has a pretty long wait, though.

We looked across the sea of people and spotted a 40 minute wait at “it’s a small world”.

A pair of marquee mice are missing. Timothy has recently gone missing from the Dumbo sign, and now we’ve spotted that Mickey is gone from the PhilharMagic sign. Hopefully they’re just out for a quick refurb and they’ll be back soon, looking good as new.

The Christopher Robin plush are available in the Hundred Acre Goods gift shop. Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, and Piglet are all ready to be taken home and loved.

Lines were long for attractions throughout Fantasyland.

We found these Haunted Mansion ears at Momento Mori. The bat bow is so cute!

One of my favorite views in the whole park.

Splash Mountain was having some issues, so the boats were going by empty. Kids were still hanging around waiting for the splash.

You know the park is crowded when people are actually waiting in line for the Swiss Family Treehouse.

The sky was so beautiful, we couldn’t help admire the scenery.

Enjoying more than just the sights, we followed the sweet scent of candy into the Confectionery, where we found a Cast Member bagging up freshly-made cotton candy. Yum.

We really like this Princess snow globe. Cinderella Castle is in the center, and a crown on top. The base of the snow globe features a variety of Disney Princesses. It plays, “Once Upon A Dream”. This will cost you $54.99.
