FC: july 2011 | Our Disneyworld Adventure
1: We scrimped and saved and the day finally arrived! Disney, here we come! Our resort was fantastic with a huge Mayan waterfall at the pool, gift bag from SBC, and our new friends, Cristina & Robert! | Second Baptist Single Parent Vacation went to... DISNEYWORLD!! We can hardly believe we were there!
2: Here we go! | Mt. Everest Yeti | Time to get wet! | Our favorite | Tigers are amazing! | Animal Kingdom
4: Hollywood Studios
5: We tested our skills at Toy Story Midway Mania until our arms gave out. It was a blast! While the Tower Terrorized Ayla, I was mesmorized by the Beast and Belle.
6: The Happiest Place on Earth: Magic Kingdom | First ride for Ayla is Thunder Railroad!
7: Mom's all-time favorite is The Haunted Mansion | BOO!!
8: Jungle Cruise... Tomorrowland... It's a Small World... | ... and the most ginormous ice cream cookie sandwich EVER!
9: Pin trading became my career. :) | ...Mickey stole my heart ...Minnie won for Best shoes
10: We sailed to Tom Sawyer Island to explore trails and caves, navigate over rope bridges, and discover Fort Langhorn. | Thunder RR is an easy target from the fort's windows for Robert & Ayla armed with rifles.
11: Pirates and a Swiss Family Treehouse... Could life get any better? | Some things happily never change. Tom Sawyer's Island, the Treehouse, Pirates, and the Haunted Mansion won top billing for Mom at Magic Kingdom. The ultimate playground for the imagination!
12: We had great "ground seats" in front of the castle for the Electrical Light Parade! It was beautiful!
13: The Magic, The Memories and You At night, Cinderella's castle transformed itself with music and photos. It wiggled, fell apart, changed colors AND caught fire!
14: Fireworks lit up the sky as we sat mesmerized by the sizzles, rocket style, booms and giant flares. Disney has mastered this night time light show!! | SPECTACULAR!
15: EPCOT ROCKS!
16: EPCOT: THE LAND "Living with the Land" | This ride took us through the American plains, a rainforest and African desert to explore innovative technologies in growing food. Only Disney could make you want to do it twice!
17: Mission: Space blasted us beyond the moon to Mars! Soarin' was fantastic flying over California!
18: The characters met us every morning for breakfast, and we took pictures with our favorites at Epcot while it rained. We loved Mickey and Minnie, and my heart melted when Mickey kissed my hand—then kissed it again at Epcot! “Your shoes are a must-have,” I told Minnie.
19: PLUTO! DONALD! GOOFY!
20: Friday morning, we celebrated our time at Coronado Springs Resort with a delicious breakfast on the resort’s beach, then watched several baptisms at the pool. | God changes lives even at Disney! | What a wonderful way to end our amazing vacation with our new friends.
