S: Disney World - August 2011
FC: Disney World Vacation August 2011
1: Disney World Vacation August 2011
2: Our favourite park was Magic Kingdom. We spent 3 days enjoying the rides and the shows. Elle's favourite ride was Peter Pan's Flight. On our third time we all managed to shut down the ride when Uncle Joel tried to help the kids get on. Somehow this ended up with Uncle Ronnie and Auntie Tammy riding together and Auntie Wendy missing the ride entirely.
3: Magic Kingdom
4: Jack loved the Buzz Lightyear ride. Auntie Wendy and Auntie Tammy loved the funnel cakes. Elle was treated like a real princess when she went shopping for her Ariel costume. | Mmmm! Funnel Cakes!
5: Magic Kingdom
6: Elle, Landon and Jack squared off in a "pose-down" in front of Cinderella's Castle - it was hilarious! Uncle Joel and Uncle Ron loved the log ride at Magic Kingdom. It was the only fast ride that Jack wouldn't ride again.
7: Landon's favourite was the Goblin Ride (aka Haunted Mansion) at Magic Kingdom. We hit it 3 times! Before every ride, Landon would ask "Does it go up and then it goes down?" and "Does it go fast?". The answers would have to be "no" for him to go on the ride.
8: Getting Around Disney
9: Uncle Ronnie and Uncle Joel got a workout hauling the strollers on and off the buses and pushing them ALL OVER the parks. | We were on the bus ALOT at Disney World. We found ways to make it fun. Jack and Landon became pseudo Jedi's with their Star Wars toys and Elle beat Auntie Wendy 137-0 at concentration. | Uncle Joel's back was a popular view for us on this trip. He was always 10 steps ahead of us, pushing Elle and Jack in the stroller at a ridiculous pace.
10: Elle, Landon and Jack were water logged from swimming so much at the hotel pool. Elle and Jack loved the water slide and everyone liked the poolside activities. Jack almost got kicked off the slide by the lifeguard for always trying to go down head first.
11: Animal Kingdom Lodge Pool
12: Animal Kingdom Park | Spiderman!
13: We all liked the Kilamanjaro Safari and the Kali River Rapids ride. | Everyone (except Uncle Ronnie and Uncle Joel) thought the "Dinosaur" ride was WAY too scary! | Jack and Landon tried to do a Spiderman pose in EVERY picture at Disney World. | We were sooo hot in this picture! | Elle tried to get someone to play concentration with her in every line. | This picture is taken in front of the tree of life in Animal Kingdom Park. | We all loved the "It's Tough to be a Bug" show.
14: Elle, Landon and Jack were so hot at Animal Kingdom that they decided they needed to cool off....clothes and everything!
16: We had dinner with the princesses in Cinderella's Castle at Magic Kingdom! Jack and Landon were knighted with royal swords and Elle loved getting autographs from all the princesses.
18: Elle's Favourite Princesses! | Elle waited in line for an hour to meet Rapunzel and 45-minutes to meet Jasmine. It was worth the wait! | I can't believe I am meeting Rapunzel right now!
19: Meeting lots of | We got to meet the princesses all over again at Epcot. This time Jack got a kiss from Belle.
20: Hollywood Studios | We only have 2 pictures from Hollywood Studios because Auntie Wendy's camera died and it was too HOT for pictures. We were all there but there are only pictures of Elle, Jack and Uncle Joel. We went to a lot of shows including the Stunt Show and the Beauty and the Beast Show. Toy Story Mania and Star Tours were our favourite rides!
21: Eating at Chef Mickey's and meeting all of the characters was a lot of fun! Jack even got a dairy and egg-free cookie and Landon ate a BIG bowl of ice cream!
22: Epcot | Epcot was surprisingly fun. Jack, Uncle Joel and Uncle Ronnie's favourite ride in all of Disney, "Test Track", was at Epcot. Auntie Wendy, Auntie Tammy, Landon and Elle all got caught in a rain storm - we were drenched! Landon and Elle just walked through it in their bathing suits! | I love Test Track! | Auntie Wendy loved Turtle Talk with Crush especially when Jack got picked to perform in the show.
23: At the Hoop-Dee-Doo Review, we all loved the food (except Auntie Wendy) but most of us found the show boring (except Elle and Uncle Ronnie). Uncle Joel entertained the boys and Elle stood on the chair to see more of the show.
24: Uncle Ronnie drove the 79 car for 8 laps and went 120 mph on the mile track. Uncle Ronnie's biggest fear was stalling the car leaving pit road - he skillfully drove the car without stalling.
25: Walt Disney World Speedway | Uncle Ronnie and Uncle Joel got up really early one morning and went to the Walt Disney World Speedway. A perfect thing to do for any NASCAR fan. Uncle Joel rode along in the 88 car. The car went 135 mph for 3 laps.
