I have always heard about this park and saw pictures, but didn't know it would be so big! It looked so cute and furthermore they were cellebrating the 100th Anniversary, so everybody was even happier, haha. There were cellebrating remindings everywhere, even the napkins at the restaurants :) The lines weren't so long, since we arrived early and when we were inside the 1st thing you see is Cinderella's Castle down the Main Street. OMG! My childhood dreams!!!!
We started walking down the Main street, while we were looking at the map.
The 2nd land was "Frontierland". It was more in the wild west style. There we took a ride with the "Splash Mountain". A great roller coaster that at the end would get you wet. Perfect! since it was a hot day, hehe.
Next stop was the "Liberty Square". It looked like a city back in early the XX century. It just had 2 attractions: The Hall of Presidents - we skipped it - and "The Haunted Mansion" where we went.
The next land was more for children. Well, no complains at all since it was Disneyworld and is more children focused. We just stopped at 2 attractions there: "It's a small world" and "The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh". Well, for "It's a small world", you take a boat and would watch these toys children dressed with all over the world customes; while you are listening to the theme song "It's a small world... la la la" I couldn't forget that song in the next few days, haha. And why stopping at Winnie the Pooh, well. Winnie the Pooh is a classic ;)
But what's Disneyworld without Mickey Mouse? Next stop was "Mickey's Toontown Fair". There was a long line to get a picture with Mickey, but I didn't care.
Enough of the past and present. It was time to move to the future, so we went to "Tomorrowland". We took a ride at the "Space Mountain". It was cool!!! and then moved to the "Tomorrowland Indy Speedway" to feel as drivers again, haha. It has been a day full of fun and joy, but we were getting tired and still have to wait for the parade...
In order to relax, we took the "WDW Railroad" that drive around the whole park, just to sit and chill out for a while.
We got nice spots for the parade and enjoyed it very much. It was so sweet watching all my favorite childhood characters there. The new and old ones - better calling them classic ones, hehe. We had to wait for quite a long time, but it was worth, totally worth. Children and grown ups were enjoying it, smiling and clapping. The "Share a Dream Come True Parade" was spectacular. It really did pay tribute to the stories and characters of all times. The snow globes were awesome!
When it was over we went back to the Main Street and visited the Town Square Exposition Hall. We still had some time to kill before they would come for us. Wow! it has been a long day, but so happy... Definitely, something I'd never forget. Ok, I knew Cinderella's Castle, now I want to know Sleeping Beauty's one, which is in California, mmm. Next Disneyland destination, haha
