The 2nd half of our Florida vacation was spent at Disney. Its almost becoming an annual Thanksgiving tradition. We were in Disneyland 2 years ago so we figured we needed to see what Disney World had to offer for the holidays. The short answer: Disneyland does Christmas better. Anyway, back the rides! You can tell your kids have gotten older between trips to the Magic Kingdom. Things that excited them the first time around like seeing characters are not as cool this time. This time it was all about roller coasters! Reagan and Sydney were tall enough for the biggest Disney had to offer so we spent a lot of time riding the same rides, over and over and over.
Interestingly, we didn’t even carry our camera this year. With 3 kids to worry about and having been there many times before, we focused on our own moment instead of capturing them on film this time. It was an enjoyable change. But I had my iPhone and Nana had hers so we got a few.
Kayla got to ride a handful of rides. Its a Small World seemed to take the award for the “What is it?” and “Ah’s.”
However, Winnie the Pooh won the prize for having the best “in-line” entertainment. They had a whole play yard full of instruments to play or disappearing rabbits to keep an eye out for. Much appreciated by parents trying to keep a one year old in line.
Other lines were made easier by the fact that we had our very own babysitter, I mean Nana, along for the ride.
Posing for pictures along the way helps too. As long as its daring.
Kayla was able to ride a handful of other rides as well. Such as Peter Pan, Pirates of the Caribbean, etc. That’s the good thing about Disney in that they have rides for all ages.
But she always spent a majority of the day napping in her stroller while being watched by Nana and Papa while the rest of us rode till we puked. We couldn’t have enjoyed the park without them.
She was a little young this time but I bet the next Disney trip will be pretty exciting for Kayla! This is the first Disney trip ever that we didn’t get a photo with the big Cheese himself. I feel a little bad about that but then again I think the big girls would have revolted. It was all about the roller coasters this time. Poor Kayla’d better catch up.
The next morning we were up at the crack of dawn to catch our flight back home. Everyone had to carry their own carry-ons. Baby included.
