We decided to celebrate Christmas Day at the Magic Kingdom, the weather was real nice and it was packed with people.
We took the steam trains to Mickey’s Toontown and started our walk from there.
The lines for the rides were long but that didn’t deter Lee and Bo from having fun. I think Lee had the best time ever here.
Lee finally get to see Cinderella castle for the first time.
Tomorrowland is awesome, but to live here might not be so great for me since I still like the old world charm of yesteryear.
We were riding on the peoplemover train and saw the parade in front of Cinderella’s castle, the zoom lens came in handy.
The Egret birds are here also, they look so exotic to me.
The evening parade was awesome, I was taking picture of the Egret birds and didn’t have time to change my lens to a wide angle lens.
We were there to celebrate our Christmas Day and so were many others. Some were there to celebrate happy ever after and for this young lady below she was there to celebrate her birthday.
She is adorable.

I was worried about not being able to take a clear shot of Cinderella’s castle at night since I didn’t have my tripod with me but it looks like I did well with hand-held and fast shuttle speed.
The night parade was spectacular, we were on our way out and Bo met a lady from Virginia. She told us that it’s well worth the wait, so we sat on the curb and waited for 2 hours and it’s awesome. I had my camera set to continuous shooting, AI Servo AF to AI Servo and ISO and White Balance set to Auto.
Mickey and Mimi Disney’s Electrical Parade float.
Cinderella’s float heading towards her castle…happy ever after.
The last float was to honor America, it was very grand.
Lee had a great time, we didn’t stay for the fireworks since it was real late for Lee. The next day we visited the Animal Kingdom and the weather was extremely cold.
The Main Street Electrical Parade is a time-lapse photography, it was a great learning experience for me.
