It was a great time to be there, they had a special event going on during which the park was open 24 hours--Rock your Disney Side. The Magic Kingdom does this once a year, and this year's theme was "Heroes and Villains." As one of the festivities, the Villains infiltrated one of the "Let's Celebrate" Parades that happened every few hours during the day.
After watching the Villains parade down main street, we happened upon a show in front of the castle.
In the show, the princesses and other popular Disney characters (the Heroes) battled Maleficent.
After the show finished, we continued on our way to Fantasyland. I had to get a picture of the quintessential tea moment in the park:
Anyone for a Mad Tea Party?
Below are some of my favorite pictures from that day.
We had dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table, in the castle. This was my first time eating in the castle, and it was a lot of fun. The restaurant is located on the second level where all the windows are below.
Various princesses show up during dinner.
I had iced tea with my meal...so I will share the offerings :).
I started dinner with a delicious strawberry salad.
For dinner I had a pork loin,
but the real star was the desserts. Below was my dad's choice--the clock strike's twelve--with dark and white chocolate.
I got the dessert sampler: raspberry cheesecake, pistachio mousse with a biscotti, and chocolate cake.
Our waiter even brought my sister a special cupcake to celebrate her graduation.
The windows in the restaurant look out over Fantasyland.
Disney has a wonderful nighttime parade--the Electrical Parade.
After the parade, the Castle lights up in a show:
(this was Frozen based!)
The night ended with fireworks.
