Our Disney trip was a while ago, so I figured it was time to post about and catch up on our lives, because we have a lot going on! First of all, Disney was so magical and just what we hoped for. The weather was probably the best you could get at Disney this time of year (no rain, sunny and low humidity) Dillon had a blast and that is all that matters. He did GREAT on the trip down, didn't nap (I knew he would be too excited) but played with all his 23434576567354 activities I brought along to distract him. Of course, the Iphone and DVD player helped too! We stayed in the All Start Sports Resort, in the basketball suites. D loved the giant basketballs, hoops, courts and of course, the pool!
I'm glad we had some down time to just chill by the pool and relax, we definitely needed it!
We went to three parks during the week and the first day, we went to Downtown Disney to get all the Disney things we needed like an autograph book, Mickey ears, first visit pins, etc. We had fun riding the little rides like the carousel and train. We went to Legoland, saw the giant lego sculptures and played with some legos, of course! I saw a giant lollipop the size of Dillon's head, and bought it for him to eat for a few days. It lasted a while and came in handy when he needed a distraction at the parks.
I see it! I see the bus!
Seriously, when are we getting on the bus.
The first park we went to was Epcot. Dillon's favorite part was watching the monorail go by. He called it a train and insisted we take a ride. We got on, but immediately got off because he didn't like it. Oh well! He loved the "big ball" and talked about that a lot. The big water fountains were also a big hit. He enjoyed the Nemo ride and seeing all the fish afterwards in the aquarium! His first character meet was here, and it was Pooh and Tiger. If you go to Disney, I highly recommend the Disneyworld app (can't remember the name, but its the official one they created) because it tells you where the characters are in the parks, and how long they will be there. We knew where they would be and were waiting close enough to get in line quick! After meeting Pooh and Tiger, we stayed in Great Britain to hear some music in a courtyard and relax. Dillon loved it, and played the air drums like a pro. We had dinner in Italy and had the best 5 dollar slice of pizza I've ever had! haha!
The final park was Magic Kingdom! This is also my favorite park. We took our picture in front of the castle, went on a few rides like Its A Small World, Dumbo, almost the race cars, and almost Monsters Inc. The no naps all week were catching up to him and he had a few meltdowns and didn't want to ride certain rides. Oh well, whatcha gonna do? He did get to see Mickey and Minnie again, in their original form (the other ones had on safari outfits at AK) and he was so cute. He hugged them tight and was so bashful. But he loved every second! After seeing them, we did some shopping in the toy store! He also got to meet Buzz, ride the big train all around MK and see another parade!
