Disney!! (Post 3))

The rest!!!

Magic Kingdom:

Be Our Guest breakfast on Tuesday!! Yay for getting into the park before opening because of breakfast reservations!! We ran into our old neighbors from AL while waiting to get in, and their daughter had her hair appointment at the same time as Olivia! Be Our Guest was fun, too! It was cool to see Belle's castle and eat $14 Fruit Loops!

Jason loved the carousel and rode it about ten times throughout our visit! He would point and say, "horse!" And when asked now about Disney, that is often his response...or Mouse!

Olivia was an awesome sport and rode everything! One of her favorites was the teacups! First with Jason and then just us:
Nicholas and Olivia even did Space Mountain!
Later in the afternoon, Olivia got to go to the Bippity Boppity Boutique and get her hair, nails, and make up done by her fairy godmother! She was over the moon!

Then we had dinner at a funny character dinner with Cinderella's step sisters! Super cute!

Princess pictures day 4:

Leo had fun, too, but he just doesn't like having his picture taken as much, do I have fewer of him...

Animal Kingdom:
Wednesday the kids weren't big fans of animal Kingdom, or maybe they just wanted to go back to Magic kingdom, so we didn't explore much...

After we did a safari and checked out Africa, the big kids and Nicholas headed to Magic Kingdom and Jason and I looked at animals for a while before heading back for his nap.


Later that day we ran into Olivia's friend from school at Magic Kingdom!
We didn't have dinner reservations, so we went to the pool and then got take out back to our room!


On Thursday, we had breakfast at our hotel at Chef Mickey's and then headed back to Magic Kingdom for the morning. Olivia got so many autographs from the characters! Leo even got his picture taken with Goofy!!


At the hotel with Jason's bubble wand:




More carousel and "It's A Small a World" and "Peter Pan's Flight"... Olivia and Nicholas went on "Space Mountain" and "Seven Dwarves Mine Train"... We did the "Jungle Cruise" and Aladin's Magic Carpets and Buzz Lightyear's ride a few times! I got a Dole Whip and loved it!



Our best meal may have been on our last night in Epcot at Akershus in Norway at the princess dinner. The kids got pizza, but I had a yummy pork chop with some kind of raisin chutney that was awesome!! Olivia loved the princesses, too!


The boys and I explored while Olivia and Nicholas waited in line for Anna and Elsa... We found a model train set outside that they liked and saw a bridge going up to let the light show out!


We had a wonderful vacation!! It was great to be so together!! This was my favorite photo of the trip...not all the moments were this spontaneously sweet, but I was so happy to see them when they were!



  1. So much fun! You are making some great memories with your kiddos!

  2. Love all of these pics so much!! Makes me want to go back to Disney. My favorite line: "It was cool to see Belle's castle and eat $14 Fruit Loops!" Ha!
