Birthday at the Magic Kingdom

Thursday, May 16th was my birthday so I spent it at The Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World! I had a really fun day riding a bunch of rides, taking several hundred photos (no, really) and Anana was there to celebrate with me!

Silly picture of me my fiance took with my cell phone. And yes, I *am* wearing a birthday tiara! LOL
If you can't be a princess for your birthday at Disney, where can you? ;)

View of Main Street USA and Cinderella Castle from the Train Station right at the entrance to the park!
With the Gaston statue in the New Fantasyland area.
Old school style circus banners for the new Storybook Circus area of the park.

Dueling Dumbo spinners in the background of the new Storybook Circus area.

Mickey and Minnie topiaries!

Anana was amused to find out he was the perfect size to fit in the canon outside Pirates of the Caribbean!

Getting a Dole Whip Float and a Dole Whip swirl at Aloha Isle. Yum!

Dole Whips are SO well loved they even have a shirt about them.

Runaway mine train goes by at Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. This is one of my favorite rides!

Welcome to the Hall of Presidents!

Liberty Belle steamboat on the river in Liberty Square.

Cinderella Castle from the side as the sun was starting to set.

With busts of some of the 999 Happy Haunts inside the Haunted Mansion.

And just because it's pretty, this is the last shot I took of the day. You park 1.5 miles away from Magic Kingdom and have to either take the monorail or the ferry boat out to the park. This shot was taken at the ferry dock with the help of my 55-250mm telephoto lens and shows the entry to MK including the train station and Cinderella Castle.


  1. So pretty! I had never heard of a Dole Whip, but it sounds DELICIOUS! I might have to try to imitate that this summer... yum!

  2. I am thinking Anana might have been a bit perturbed to have her photo taken with those Dole Whips considering she is a pineapple and all.....

    Great photos! I LOVE the last one, it is just gorgeous.

    1. LOL I know, it seems wrong somehow doesn't it? But it was just kinda too funny NOT to get a shot! ;)

      And thanks! I think that last one came out lovely as well.

  3. RickyHanson says great images of the happiest place on Earth.
