Disneyworld, Here We Come!!

We had planned on taking the kids back to our room each day for a nap, like our smart friends Kelly and Tim, but we just never got around to it. Brady would eventually wear out and take a 30 minute nap in the stroller. He was surprisingly good, much better than I was expecting him to be. As long as the stroller was moving or he was out running around, he was fine.
Brady really cared nothing about seeing the princesses, but we had to get a picture nonetheless. The Aurora "Sleeping Beauty" was very nice. We also have a picture of Grace with Belle, but she was NOT pleased with Belle. Belle was wearing her blue dress and white apron from the beginning of the movie, and Grace was very disappointed that she wasn't wearing her yellow dress that she wore with the Beast. Funny what kids do!

This is a perfect picture to explain what awe Grace was in everywhere we went. Disney really is a magical place, and the kids had so much to look at! Meeting Cinderella was like her dream come true, and it was so sweet to watch. That one moment was worth the whole trip!


Grace and Snow White.
The most hilarious thing was that all of these princesses talked in the most squeaky, high voice, just as Snow White does in the movie. They called Grace "princess" and had funny little things to say.
Grace and Ariel, "The Little Mermaid"
Our second day was spent at Epcot, because we had special reservations for a lunch with all the princesses. This lunch was the most talked about thing for months before we actually went on the trip. Grace is crazy for the princesses, and dresses in their outfits daily. Here we are waiting for our lunch to begin. Uncle Gary is in the white shirt.

Josh, Brady, Pops, Grace, and Grammy at the Disney Channel Show. Aunt Marisa and Uncle Gary were not thrilled to be at this show. Their little one won't arrive until May, so they don't know the joys of kid's tv shows and the annoying songs they sing. This was the first day we were there, and we spent half a day at Hollywood Studios (formerly MGM Studios.) There wasn't a whole lot for the kids to do there, but we saw some great shows (Beauty & the Beast, Muppets 3-D, Little Mermaid, Disney Channel).

Meeting the Little Einstein's was a real treat! Both kids loved that, along with the Disney channel show that had "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Tigger and Pooh, and Handy Manny."

Here we are waiting at the shuttle stops to get on the bus. Disney is a well-oiled machine, that's for sure! There are buses to take you everywhere! From the time we landed at the airport, we were shuttled around by Disney. No car seats needed, thank goodness. They really know how to treat you like you're on vacation. They even deliver your bags from the airport into your hotel room. Genius!!
