Magic Kingdom opened Splash ‘N’ Soak Station in fantasyland in Park. Disney World tips.

Our September Tuesday 2012 trip Disney Magic Kingdom.

Above is a picture of the Ferry Boat sign to travel to the park.  Since we travel with Baby boy, the easiest way across the lake to magic kingdom are the ferry boats.  This way, you do not have to fold the stroller like on the monorail.  Most of the time you will be able to get on, on the first or second run of boats.
As the ferry docks, you stand and wait for behind the bridge along a covered port.

Pass holders are issued the same form of tickets as those who have 3-day passes.  The change is a waterproof, durable, and smudge proof paper that holds your information.  We have found it easy to wear about your neck within a lanyard plastic for easy access for ticket gates, and the fast pass rush.

All parks are decorated to match the seasons.  Here in September the park is decorated for the fall with pumpkins, hay and warm colors.
Balloon carts are in the front of the park.  These are helpful when you do not have a marker for your stroller in stroller parking.  Having a balloon tied to your stroller will cut down on time when looking for it.

As of September 2012 the addition to Fantasyland has not been opened.  The Splash 'n' Soak Station has been opened. A cute addition to this area, setup as a train and circus theme.  Make sure to carry a change of clothes, if you plan on getting wet.

In Fanstayland, you can travel by train to get to other parts of the park.  Along the way you get a glimpse of the hidden parts of some rides.

The map is large, but showing everything in detail.  Including the price range of their resturants.

Winnie the Pooh ride has a play wait area for the little ones.  Also a spot to meet the characters.

Tigger is such a funny character.

In the cafe within Furtureland, downstairs is a performing alien.  A great spot for little ones to dance and eat for lunch.

Located in the front of the park is an activity board.  Where you can check up on all of the events for the day.
Not far from, around a hidden corner, is the baby care center.  What a great place to change, nurse, and feed your little one.

Changing tables in the baby care center.
Aladdin spitting camel, watch out.

Splash mountian.

The renovated Hall of Presidents, is a must see.
All parades are taped and roped off. 

The guide inside said, "there are only four of these seals located in the United States."

Nap time. 

It is always great to bring a towel of blanket to cover little ones from the sun. 
Diamond parking is located just pass the handicapped parking.  Once in the diamond parking, place your diamond pass and your parking ticket in your dash window for this area.
Once parked follow the castle walkway to the park and or home.

Labor Day Weekend Beach Adventures

Happy Labor Day 2012.
Our family enjoyed a wonderful evening at the beach.  Baby girl and Baby boy enjoyed their play time in the small tide pool, which created the right amount of water for a toddler to play in.  The weather was perfect, the tide was low, and the sun was in the right spot.  We could not have asked for a better evening on the sand.  

How to plan for the beach?
Here are a few tips when going to the beach.  I have always found helpful.

  1. Pick to right time of day for family. (consider crowds and sun position)
  2. Pack a cooler with water, snacks, and small prepared meals.
  3. Limit towels you bring.
  4. Park or setup near facilities.(for showers and potty breaks)
  5. Pack sand toys.
  6. Pack change of clothes for little ones.
  7. Bring a blanket or chairs.
  8. Ipod speaker for music.
  9. Plastic bags for wet items.
  10. Lastly sunscreen and your excited little ones.

It's always sad... when it's time to leave the beach.
