My Disney Vacation

I have a lot to say about my Disney vacation – some magical, some not so magical. However, it is going to have to wait until I get this family back on track to living a regular life and get the laundry under control. Easier said than done, especially since I am trying to nurse my Disney hangover with whole foods and soothing tea. In the meantime, here are some pictures of our magical time at Disney World. Enjoy and see you soon for What Do You Think Thursday with Skinny Scoop!

First plane ride!  It went really well. . . until it didn't.
And then it went really bad.  But only on the landing
on the way home.
Downtown Disney - loved it!

First ride - the Tea Cups. 
Lots of fun!

At the highly coveted Chef Mickey . . .
all the main characters at one time
with the most delicious waffels ever.

Work function with Harrington's work.
Are these not the cutest Babes?!
Animal Kingdom after the safari.
Quite possibly the hottest day of the vacation.

We were getting ready to leave, and *poof*
a parade in the middle of the day.  We decided
to stay, even though I thought I was going to
melt into a puddle of sweat.  The Babes
loved it! 

We were in line for just Jesse when, all of a sudden, she
left and came back with Woody.  I thought they were
going to explode with happiness!
Marie at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique

Is that face guard something else or what?!

Even though I was opposed to this
experience, Marie had a great time . . .
I mean look at that smile!

Epcot fireworks . . .after the longest
day EVER!
Meeting Belle in Epcot.

Thomas was starting to go deep into this
Disney hangover.  Aladdin handled this
with much charm and humor.

Aladdin and Jasmine were the BEST!

Anything with Zurg and Toy Story made
Thomas very, very happy.
I was a bit surprised when I began to
feel emotional when I heard
 When You Wish Upon a Star
while the fireworks exploded.
by the castle.

So glad you had a good time! I can't wait for it to get cooler so we can start going again. Hubby and I are going overnight in October for our anniversary...first time in YEARS without the kids. Should be fun!

Looks like you had a wonderful time! What a great opportunity for you guys!! And I bawled like a baby during the fireworks....I held onto my little wish (aka Gus) and sobbed!! I think that my husband was a little embarrassed by me but I didn't care! Loved every second of it!!

Seriously, I am sure the kids had the most memorable vacation EVER! And that's what matters, right?

Some mega vacation rental website ad campaigns poke fun at hotel rooms and point out the many advantages of renting private houses that include more space and privacy, a better overall value and a chance to experience living in a local neighborhood.
