Disney Memories

These memories are some of the best! We had a great trip this year. 
 We have been 3 years in a row now during the Christmas season. 
 It is a great way to start the celebrating. The parks have decorations up, Christmas Carols play, 
Mickey's Verry Merry Christmas party is a blast, and the tree at Downtown Disney is amazing! 
 We are glad we were able to go again this year. 
 Here are some of the many, many memories we made.
(picture heavy!)

The fun started on Sunday with breakfast at the Grand Floridian with Mary Poppins and friends.
 The characters of choice this year were Alice and The Mad Hatter. 
 We were pleased all the kids really enjoyed the characters this year 
and nobody was under the table and or crying as we have experienced before!!

Another "nice" experience this year was flexibility with nap time. 
 He slept every day in his stroller for cat naps and did great.
 This was the first year he didn't need a full nap time to prevent melt downs!!

Just a little shy but he was in love! When Pooh came up to greet him I didn't see Pooh coming. I suddenly heard him squealing and then saw Pooh. I wish I had a picture of that!

The big boys were also more flexible and easier to manage as they could ride together on all the rides for the first time this year. That was a huge help! There sister could also join in on some more like Splash Mountain. They rode it so many times in a row together even she said she felt like she could be sick!

Daddy said," say cheese," just as he was getting ready to take their picture.
The Mad Hatter yelled, "WHY DO YOU HAVE TO BE SO BOSSY?!"

Still having fun, boys?

All and all we had a blast at the Character meal. I'm glad this was our first stop.
 We all left very excited for the week before us.

The Hoop-Dee-Doo Review is also fun. It is a dinner show.
 They serve fried chicken family style with all the fixens.
 The kids loved it! They sing and dance throughout with a lot of audience participation.
 The kids still run through the house at times singing "Hoop-dee-Doo, Hoop-dee-Doo!"


On Monday we spent the day at Hollywood Studios as a family. It was especially exciting to go
 there first because I had never been on Rock-n-Roller Coaster. I was able to ride it first off
with my sweet middle boy riding beside me also for his first time on the ride.
 Daddy and the oldest stayed back with the littlest ones.

Honey, I shrunk the kids movie set. It is big and I feel like you can easily loose a child.
 We had the kids in pairs with a parent with each set. It worked well.
A little worn out from chasing his sister though out the set. Thanks for helping sweetie!!

Getting a little wet on the set. I'm thankful our weather was great all week
 with temperatures every day in the 80's. Evenings were cooler in the 60's.

Okay, I'm not going to lie, Disney wears me out!!
 I have to drink a little more coffee to get going each day.


On Tuesday we went to the Magic Kingdom and spent some time at the Royal Palace with all the princesses. It worked out that our table was the last stop for each princess so they would linger.

Sleeping Beauty said, "oh, we look like we could be sisters!"

Snow White was delighted with his reaction to her. He squealed with delight. She said, "you brought such an adorable little dwarf." Then she looked around the table and said, "you brought many adorable dwarfs with you today!" Then she leaned down and kissed him on the forehead! He was tickled and she responded with equal delight!

On Tuesday, we split up and it was my day to take the little ones with there big brother to Magic Kingdom. We only met up for lunch at the Palace.
 Daddy and our middle son had an alone day at Animal Kingdom.
He is just a little giddy with excitement. I don't know if it is because he is sharing a day with dad or the anticipation of Animal Kingdom. Probably both!
There is the mature, sweet, handsome boy I know.


Wednesday was the alone day with daddy for our oldest son. So they headed off to Hollywood Studios and Epcot. I took the youngest 3 to Downtown Disney.
 There was face painting,

(He is actually allergic and I washed it off just before he went to bed.)
napping in the stroller together,

built dinos at "Build A Dino",

 we also spent a good amount of time at the LEGO imagination center.
The last portion of our evening we saw the movie,
Michael Jackson, This is It.
(1/2 of it as we bought tickets to see Astro Boy and the theater played the wrong movie in our theater!)
(our daughter dancing in the aisle... highlight!)
This was The Osborne Family Festival of Lights at Hollywood Studios. This is one of daddy's and our oldest favorite activity to do each Christmas season. It has always worked out that just the two of them go. They really want us all to see it next year. They took video this time and shared it with us. It is beautiful. The lights are on the buildings and move to Christmas music.
Fun times together. They always eat together at Epcot on there alone day - Sushi.


Thursday we ended our week with Mickey's Back Yard Bar-B-Q.
 It is mainly all you can eat bar-b-q and a dance party.
We danced,
and danced,

and danced,
and danced,

and danced!!

And went back to our room exhausted!! My feet were a little sore too.

"See ya real soon!"

(with littlest mister being up sick for most of the night we decided to head home a day earlier
 than planed just in case we were all going to be sick. Thankfully we all made it home sick free
 with the exception of our littlest!)
