FC: Our Florida Adventure May 2012
1: waiting for a snack | watching Duck Tales | Jojo and Memay traveled on Delta to Tampa on 2 planes and got 2 snacks (cookies and peanuts)! We landed in Atlanta at 1:00 at the end of the B terminal, and our next plane boarded at 1:15 at the other end of the A terminal. It was a haul, but Jojo did really well.
2: Windsor Hills Condo 304
4: SeaWorld | We did the Shark Encounter exhibit and the Wild Arctic with walruses, polar bears and beluga whales. Mommy and Jojo fed some shrimp to the sharks! | There was a sting ray petting area, and Jojo got to pet sting rays.
5: Aunt Judy bought Jojo a stuffed orca, which he named Orci. She eats leaves (Orci, not Aunt Judy). So we collected them and ripped them into little pieces for her dinner. | We were standing by the pool at the dolphin area, and a dolphin went right up to Mommy and splashed her, soaking her completely. She got to touch it, and it was very exciting.
6: We saw the Dolphin and Bird Show (yea!), Shamu, and the Sea Lion Show. Jojo liked the sea lions the best.
7: Next Time! | Splashed!
9: Disney Hollywood Studios Fantasmic | We napped and got to DHS around 7:00 pm. We had time for Star Tours (a hit!) and dinner at the Backlot before Fantasmic started.
10: Islands of Adventure Super Hero Island
12: We saw Spiderman a few times in IOA. | By the end of the day, Jojo and Spidy were friends!
13: SPIDERMAN | the ride
14: We went to Jurassic Park, but it was not a fan favorite. Although we had a great time at Harry Potter, Seuss Landing and Toon Lagoon. We all got very wet on Bluto's Barges.
16: Magic Kingdom We had a great time at Magic Kingdom. Lots of rides and characters.
17: Tiki Birds | Haunted Mansion | Farewell Snow White! | Mickey's Philharmagic
18: Splash Mountain
19: We waited to meet Woody and Jessie right outside Splash Mountain, giving Jojo enough time to get a little scared. Memay had to make a deal with him and promise to make it his "special day" if he didn't like the ride. Well, he did like it, and it became his favorite ride of the trip!
20: Jojo got to meet the Princesses, too! When Jojo asked Belle for her address instead of her autograph, she was a little put out, but we explained the confusion and she was okay. Jojo taught Princess Aurora the Hulk smash!
21: Whispering Canyons at Wilderness Lodge
22: Disney Hollywood Studios | We saw lots of characters, including Sully, who we have been looking for during 3 trips, but have only seen in the parade.
23: Lunch at the 50's Prime Time Diner | Phineas and Ferb's Backyard Luau
24: Jedi Training Academy
26: Characters In Flight Finally!
28: SeaWorld: Day 2
29: Since we got a second admission for free, we went back to SeaWorld to see what we missed on Day 1 with Aunt Judy. | There was a great water area and cargo net playscape. Boy was it a hot day!
32: World Showcase | We thought getting Jojo a stroller would help him take a nap. Nope, he just conserved his energy while we used up ours! | Jojo met Snow White and Marie from Aristocats!
33: Garden Grill for dinner, overlooking the Living with the Land ride Yes, there are goldfish on the Mac and Cheese!
34: Universal Studios
36: Yehaa Bob at the River Roost Bar in Port Orleans Riverside | Born to Hand Jive! | We partied till midnight!
37: "Mom, raise your glass to Bob!" | He gets paid for this???? | You make me want to SHOUT!
38: Animal Kingdom | Jojo knew we were going to the fun kid's pool at Kidani Village when we left Animal Kingdom, so he was in a hurry. We managed to do Dinosaur, have a nice lunch, the Safari, see Tigers and then leave. He wanted to see the goats, one of the few things he really remembered from last time, but they were closed for renovations.
39: Tusker House for lunch
40: Kilimanjaro Safari
42: Animal Kingdom Lodge Jambo House | We spent out last night in a Disney Vacation Club studio room with a view out over the Savannah.
