Disney World

This post has been needing to be posted for awhile now, almost 3 weeks, and this is the first chance I have had to do it. And all because Big has a sprained foot and I had to keep him home today to chill on the couch.

For Big's 3rd birthday we took a trip to Disney World with Papa and Grandma. We spent 10 glorious days in high 80's to mid 90's. The temps were a little warm for us, but that didn't stop us from having a great time.

We had a very early flight on the way down. We were at the airport by 4AM. In the end we got bumped to first class and it was smooth sailing from there to Florida.

Our first full day we spent at Hollywood Studios. Big was in heaven when he learned that he was going to get to meet the Little Einsteins. He was a little shy when finally made our way through the line to them.

Littles favorite part of the day was enjoying a popsicle while enjoying the afternoon parade.

Big also got to play in the Honey I Shrunk the Kids playground. Lots of fun slides and shooting water (hence the reason he is all went in the below photo).

Another highlight of the day was getting to meet "Chow" and Mater.

For supper we got to eat at my all time favorite restaurant. The Sci-Fi Dine in Theater.

The next day we headed to the Magic Kingdom. We spent the morning meeting some characters and riding some very fun rides. That combined with the heat and my mid afternoon, we had two very tired little boys!

Day 4 was spent in the Animal Kingdom. We got to see lots of animals, go on some more rides, meet lots of characters and see the Finding Nemo show.

Day 5 was spent at EPCOT. I think Big rode on the ride in the "ball' about 4 times. He couldn't get enough of it.

Day 6 was spent at Typhoon Lagoon. It was a relaxing day, and with the temps the way that they were, it was a nice break from the heat! Big loved going in the wave pool with Papa. A wave would come and go and he immediately asked to do it again.

Day 7 was spent at SeaWorld. There were lots of shows to watch. Bigs favorite was the dolphin show, and not to be a downer, but the Shamu show was a million times better when the trainers actually got in the water. I have to say it seemed a little lame this time without it.

Day 8 we went back to EPCOT after having breakfast with Mickey and the gang at Chef Mickey's. In the evening we went to the Magic Kingdom for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. It was so a blast. We all dressed up like characters from Alice in Wonderland. They give you a wristband to let cast members know that you are able to be there. Big loves his so much, he still has it on!

The Jumping Water, a highlight for any child (or adult!)

Day 9 we celebrated Bigs birthday and headed back to the Magic Kingdom for the day. For supper we ate at the Crystal Palace with Winnie the Pooh and his friends.

He isn't smiling in this photo, but he LOVES Mr. Puppet (aka Mary Poppins).

This was Bigs all time favorite ride in Disney World. He would beg to go on it. And how often do you turn three in Disney World. So we obliged and took him on it one more time!

We had a great trip and can't wait to go back again. Although I think we all decide bringing a 1 year old was not our brightest move.
