Eight months of the planning has finally come to fruition. This time we flew down but hopefully next time we visit we’ll be camping in Fort Wilderness. Besides, we’re camperless at the moment. So much planning goes into a vacation like this especially with the kids being so little but we figured their ages were perfect to introduce them to Disney World for the first time. We had a blast! So many firsts! This was the first time the children were up in an airplane. They really enjoyed that. We stayed at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and they had a really awesome pool area. Sarah and Ava must have logged hundreds of trips down the two waterslides.Meals were a little hectic, inter-Disney transportation was a bit of a rarity of times but that was all forgotten when you were at the pool.
We didn’t get to the parks that the first day but went to Disney’s Hollywood Studios the following day. Starting out with the Beauty and the Beast Show, then the Frozen Singalong followed by dinner at the Brown Derby and finally the Fantasmic Show.
The next day we went to Magic Kingdom and rode “It’s a Small World”, the Peter Pan Ride and saw Mickey’s Philarmagic. We had lunch at Chef Mickeys with Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daffy and Pluto and later Sarah and I snuck off to ride The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. She’s not scared of anything. We later joined up again to ride the Flying Dumbo Ride and Aladdin’s Magic Carpet Ride.
We went to Disney’s Animal Kingdom the following day and had lunch at the Tusker House followed by the Lion King performance. We also hiked through their Africa side and saw a lot of cool animals.
Our final day at the parks was back to Magic Kingdom to for the Pirates of the Caribbean and the Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse. We had lunch at The Enchanted Ballroom from Beauty and the Beast and rushed back to Adventureland for the Jungle Cruise. The Tomorrowland Speedway was next the we made off to Disney’s Floridian resort for dinner with the cast from Cinderella. Later on, Sarah and I snuck off to Fastpass Splash Mountain and endure a long wait for Space Mountain. Like I said before, she’s fearless.
We had plans to sneak in a park the last day as we were not flying out until 6:45 pm but we and the kids were burned out so we elected for late check out and played at the pool.

It was a busy trip but we all had fun (despite a couple of sick kids) and made lots of memories. This is most likely our last trip for 2016 but stay tuned as we’ll be bringing you some news as well as planning for 2017. Thanks for stopping by.
