S: Disney 2009
1: We had been up since 3am but it was worth it and the faces on the kids was priceless. Some of the favorite rides were: Toy Story Mania, Tower of Terror and the Muppet's Show. Unfortunately the night show wasn't going to be on while we were in town so we'll have to catch that one the next time. | Day 1 | Hollywood Studios
2: All Star Music Resort
3: We waited in line for an hour to see this guy. My kids love Mickey Mouse and they talked about him for months prior to & after the trip. I just wish Natalia wouldn't have been asleep so she could have seen him.
4: When you think of Disney you immediately think of the Castle. They loved walking down the main street and watching it get bigger and bigger till they were right in front of it. They were looking forward to eating at Cinderella's Castle & celebrating Natalia's 1st birthday.
6: The Castle at night...\ I have to say that this was one of the top moments of our trip. The firework display is top of the line and we all enjoyed it.
7: The kids had fun trying on hats in Downtown Disney. After all that we grabbed a bite to eat at Rainforest Cafe, we really enjoy the atmosphere there.
8: For months when the kids saw the Disney parade on TV they asked if they could sit right up front. I did everything in my power to get us done with lunch in time to get good seats and was glad we did. Many of the characters came right up to them & they loved it.
9: We saw Mickey, Minnie, Cinderella, Snow White, Little Mermaid, Belle & many more. | Happy times
13: He liked Carla's fan and since it was HOT outside he decided he wanted to cool himself off.
15: Chip & Dale | The Toy Story Gang
18: Happy Birthday Natalia | For Natalia's first birthday we ate dinner at Cinderella Castle. The Fairy Godmother & mice came out & did a little show but it scared her. After they went away she was fine and ate her dinner and cake. It was a wonderful day spent at Magic Kingdom.
19: On our last day there we took the kids to eat at Donald's Safari Breakfast inside the Animal Kingdom. Along for the party were Mickey, Daisy, Donald, and Goofy. The kids got to dance and play games with the characters. They really enjoyed it.
20: We spent our last day in Animal Kingdom. There is so much to see. - Expedition Everest - Kilimanjaro Safaris - Festival of the Lion King - Finding Nemo, The Musical - DINOSAUR - The tree of life
21: Epcot! Epcot has so much to offer. To start off, where else can you go & visit so many countries in one day and then there are so many rides and shows. One of our favorites is Soarin. There's also that cute little turtle Crush. My favorite animal is a sea turtle so I hold Finding Nemo close to my heart.
22: Magic Kingdom will always have a special place in my heart. Not only was this our first big family vacation but we got to celebrate Natalia's golden birthday here. It was all priceless.
23: These are just some of our favorite spots in Hollywood Studios. We had a great time & can't wait to come back & do it all over again.
26: Everyone passed out on the way back to the airport.
