On Wednesday, December 29, our third morning at Disney, we started out by going to Magic Kingdom. Alex had an appointment to get made into a pirate!! We got there a little early, so Alex and Larry rode the Aladdin carpets and then we all rode the Pirates of the Caribbean ride.
Alex did amazing during his pirate make-over. We let him choose the design that he wanted on his face (they had several to choose from) and of course he decided on the one with the most make-up and scariest looking face! Once he decided on the design, they gave him a "pirate name" and took him to get his make-up on. He sat so still and followed all the instructions they gave him. He loved it! Walking thru the park, he was a great hit...most people stopped to look at his face and Alex loved all the attention. He was quick to give anyone and everyone his fiercest "Argh"!! After he was fully dressed like a pirate (make-up, bandana, earring, sash and sword), we rode the Pirates of the Caribbean ride again.
We left the Magic Kingdom with our little pirate and headed to Hollywood Studios. We tried to get a fast-pass for the Toy Story ride, but all of the fast passes had been given out for the day and the wait for ride was over 180 minutes. We decided to grab a quick bite for lunch and then see the car stunt show. I can not even begin to tell you how much Alex enjoyed that show! He had a great time seeing the cars do stunts and cheered out loud the entire time! After the stunt show, we headed over to see the Disney Playhouse show. He really liked seeing all his favorite characters and singing along with them!
We headed back to the hotel for Alex's afternoon nap after the Disney Playhouse show was over. After we all got ready, we went back to the Magic Kingdom so we could see the electrical parade and see the park all lit up for nighttime! The Christmas decorations were absolutely beautiful and the parade was just as magical as I remembered it.
Here are pictures from our third day at Disney:
