9: The Celebrate A Dream Come True Parade was unbelievable! Tama & Travis made friends with a little boy from Venezuela & watched the parade with him. | A Dream Come True
10: Almost every day of vacation, we had a daily downpour. It didn't usually last very long, but it didn't really cool anything off either. | Hugs outside of Splash Mountain. Fast Passes allowed us to come back later and skip the 90 minute line. | Dinner with Pooh Bear and Friends at The Crystal Palace
11: One of the best parts of dinner was watching Travis jam with Eeyore! | Piglet, Pooh, Tigger amd Eeyore | How can you not love the Bear??
12: Tama's favorite character was Goofy. Travis loved The Beast during the parade. Mom and Dad;s favorite characters were Tama and Travis! | Disney at night is even more magical! From the Electrical Parade to the Wishes fireworks, we were in awe of it all. We even saw a double rainbow!
13: The most Magical Place on Earth!!
14: We loved it all! Swimming, rides, fireworks ... everything! | Adventure
15: Our first trip to Disney was so magical and exciting! We will definitely return someday. Travis is already saving to go to Disney Hawaii next!
16: Elephants, giraffes, lions, hippos, cheetahs and more ... we saw it all on the Harambe Wildlife Reserve!!
17: Animal Kimgdom was amazing! Not only did we have fun and learn a lot on the safari, but all the other areas thrilled us, too. From Asia and the Expedition Everest ride to the Dinosaur ride in Dino Land and A Bug's Life in The Tree of Life, we loved it all! | Our Goofy Family
19: There were lots of fun things to see and do at Animal Kingdom. The kids got to go on discovery hunts in each area to earn a stamp by answering nature questions. The Tree of Life carvings were beautiful!!
20: The Spirit of Aloha luau show at Disney's Polynesian Hotel was very entertaining. We got to see costumes and dances from different Pacific islands and got to try some delicious luau food!
21: Tama took a hula lesson! Too bad she is so shy!! | Samoan fire dancer! Travis was to that he could not try this at home!
22: Our day at Sea World! It was very hot, so getting splashed at the whale and dolphin shows was refreshing. Tama and Mom sat in the front row for the Shamu show and got soaked! But it was soooo much fun!!
23: Feeding the dolphins was awesome! We even got to touch them and talk to them. Other fun things: the kids got to pick out oysters and then we made jewelry out of the pearls that were in them; getting up close with the mantees; feeding french fries to the carp!
25: The Wizarding World of Harry Potter | Universal Islands of Adventure: We didn't get to see a whole lot of the park before we got rained out, but we did get to go on The Harry Potter Forbidden Journey ride. It was worth every minute of the 90 minute wait in line!! Best ride ever!!
