We FINALLY made it to Disney World!
We are that family that says every year, “THIS is the year we are going! We are ! We REALLY are going to do it this year!”
Then that time comes and goes and we say, “So!……………Next year?”
Well, this one kind of just happened.
Z and I had planned on going and taking advantage of the Holiday weekend recently and decided to
ship the kids off to my mom and dad’s and take off for a Romantic weekend to the Mountains.
Because we are the CRAZIEST, COOLEST, MOST AWESOMEST parents in the world…..
we decided to go to Disney World instead.
Not only that,
we convinced the babies that THEY were going to the Mountains too.
The morning we were leaving, we decided to let them in on the little surprise.
At first, they were shocked,
then they were in disbelief,
then my little one told me that it was ok!
We could just go to the Mountains after we go to Disney World. (How nice of him and his Large Bank Account!)
We made a pit stop in Savannah for the night and then the next day, we were off to “The Happiest Place on Earth!”
Since this was the first time we were doing this, I had to ask for help.
I didn’t know anything, so I turned to some friends who then gave me the sweetest travel agent’s info.
Her name is Kimberly Hill with Mouse Tales Travel.
I thought she would have tips for us, but I had no idea how much she would actually do for us!
(More on that later!)
Her company specializes in all things Disney. Whether you want to go to the Parks or want to do a cruise, she can plan it all for you.
Did you know they even have Disney Trips to other countries?
Might try that out when the kids get a few years older.
If you want, check out her site here.
On the way from Savannah to Disney, I was trying to get the kids excited about getting there, so I decided to video tape them.
If only I didn’t have to deal with my crazy husband…
Here is the video I took.
Try to make it to the end…… it’s worth it!
Now that you see how crazy my husband can be, let’s move on. : D
We stayed at The Art of Animation.
Our hotel ROCKED!
Even though I don’t really have anything else to compare it too, I think you can agree that anything “themed” is a win win for Families!
The hotel was themed in Finding Nemo, The Lion King, Cars, and The Little Mermaid.
We stayed in The Lion King suite, so our whole suite looked like it.
The kids got such a kick out of everything being so BIG!
Just in case you can’t see what they are doing….
Oh! You didn’t know they were over the top models?
PUT YOUR BACK INTO IT !!!
SPIRIT FINGERS, LEE!
WHERE ARE YOUR SPIRIT FINGERS????!!!!!??????
(*I swear I’m not a “Stage Mom”????)
They even had an “elephant boneyard” to climb and explore in.
This was perfect for my climbers.
This one especially! She climbs on EVERYTHING!
I definitely wouldn’t want to run into one of these guys while out strolling around.
OR! One of these!
Since, we didn’t get there early enough to really enjoy one of the parks that day, we decided to go to Downtown Disney.
It was VERY COOL! They had a Lego Store where there were so many Life Size Characters all made out of ….. you guessed it…..Legos!
No wonder they call this the Happiest Place on Earth! This was my happiest place!
Well, that was our first day!
I’m going to break this up into a few more posts because there is so much to cover.
I promise I will try not to be boring.
Well, atleast not too much!
