Disney vacation itinerary

Part Two of our Orlando Vacation Recap (click here to read Part One) focuses on just one park: Magic Kingdom.  It was going to be the highlight of our whole vacation because it’s the most toddler-friendly of the Disney parks and I simply couldn’t wait for Stink to see the fireworks over the castle.
