4: Friday 4/6 | Spent the night at a hotel near the airport Thursday night. Woke up early Friday morning, had breakfast at the hotel and then headed out for our 8am flight. The girls enjoyed their 1st plane ride, but were a bit bored. They didn't realize that there wasn't much for them to do. They were each able to get a window seat and we sat in front/behind each other.

6: Disney's magical express took us on a 30 minute ride to the resort. We checked in, saw our room and then headed out for lunch at the hotel. After lunch we had fun in the pool and then headed out to Magic Kingdom for the Street Party, Electrical Parade, Wishes Nighttime spectacular & Fireworks. Girls both fell asleep and we had to make our way through wall to wall people to get out of the park. | Friday 4/6
8: Saturday 4/6 | We started the day with breakfast at the hotel and then headed to Hollywood Studios for the day. We got plenty of autographs including Jake (pirate), green army man, We had fun on the Toy Story ride. We also watched the Voyage of Little Mermaid show and the Indiana Jones Stunt Show. The girls played on the Honey, I shrunk the kids fun movie set and got to dance on stage with the Disney Channel Rocks kids. We enjoyed Mickey Ears ice cream sandwiches while watching the Pixar Pals parade.
10: Sunday 4/7 | Happy Easter! We woke up early to find that the Easter Bunny had left some special treats in our hotel room. The girls gathered Easter eggs, chocolate bunnies and a stuffed bunny for Ally & a monkey with bunny ears for Emma. We spent the day in Epcot! We enjoyed Soarin' first thing before the line got too long. We loved the hang gliding experience, the smells of the oranges, pine trees and water. We loved it so much, we rode it again. The girls put on their princess dresses and it was time for our princess breakfast in Norway. Other highlights Nemo & Friends clam mobile ride and Turtle Talk w/Crush. Characters: Marie (aristocrats), the beast, Ice cream in Italy... Mexican restaurant for dinner and then fireworks.
12: Tuesday 4/10 | Magic Kingdom - early day
14: Wednesday 4/11 | Animal Kingdom What a great day! We got to animal kingdom when it just opened with the extra magic hours. We had muffins outside while watching the flamingos. The weather was gorgeous and there were no crowds that early in the morning. We got our fast pass for the safari and then saw "it's tough to be a bug" in the tree of life. Ray loved it, but the girls and I hated it. The Safari was fun and then we walked through the ...... where we got to see a momma gorilla with her baby. We saw the Festival of the Lion King show and then had lunch at The Rainforest Cafe. We were seated right in front of a gorilla so Emma kept beating her chest when he did. The girls wanted to go to the boneyard which was a large playground and sandbox and on the Tricertap Spin which they thought was 'awesome'. On our way to the parade we caught a birds of flight show which was pretty cool. It was hot for parade time! Emma was excited to see Abu from Aladdin in the parade. We did a little shopping in 'Africa'. Ally bought a lion and Emma bought a wittled wooden monkey and a stuffed monkey that she can velcro around her - his name is Coco. Back to the pool....
16: Monday 4/9 | Pool day Epcot for dinner Today was a pool day! We enjoyed mickey waffles for breakfast outside at the resort then headed over to the pirate pool. The girls had fun on the water slides and in the hot tub before heading back to the pool closer to our room. I did some laundry and got us packed up for the evening. We headed back to Epcot for dinner. We went to China for Chinese food, had ice cream by the fountain and then went to the character spot to meet Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Donald and Goofy.
