Curtis won a trip for two to Disneyworld at his work Christmas party this year, it included two tickets to the Magic game, two parkhopper tickets to the Disney parks, two flights, and a two night stay at the Westin Imagine hotel! So we forked over the extra money and took our kiddos with us! The boys got the tickets to the Magic/Knicks game so Kinsley and I went to see Cirque De Soleil's La Nouba the first night!
The next day it was on to Animal Kingdom!
Where we did the safari ride and saw giraffes...
funny gorillas with their very own blankets
This super cool tree with tons of animal carvings in it...
and rode this crazy roller coaster - Kaden and Kinsley's first real roller coaster...yes it is a roller coaster, no we did not take a detour - see the tracks on the left!
After that we were on to Hollywood Studios!
We watched a little padawan training...
which inspired Kaden to buy this Jedi cloak, and Kinsley got her face painted - they were both sooo happy they held hands!
We also ate in this precious 50's diner!
After lunch it was time for Epcot!
Where we met our first character for this trip - Daisy!
They were having this beautiful flower exhibit and the park was just gorgeous!
Then it was time to see all the countries - we started in France - this is Kinsley by the bridge!
Our only pic with Minnie and Mickey - we didn't see them much this trip:(
And just in case you were wondering - the view from our hotel - I took this just to remember how pretty it was - we were so busy we didn't acutally ever get out to this pool, but boy was it beautiful!!
and finally...Magic Kingdom - funny story - we were supposed to see ALL these parks in ONE day - you heard me right - we just had the one day park hopper passes ya know...needless to say we got mixed up on the closing times and ended up getting here right at closing time...so...we forked over some more money and went back the next day - because after all - you can't come to Disneyworld and NOT go to Magic Kingdom - that's what it's all about right?! Honestly - I was happy for more time at this park - its my fave!
and this is why - lots of happy memories made here!
What would Disneyworld be without the Mickey ears pics?
Or the family Cinderella Castle pic - do you love our Mickey shirts?:)! Curt was too cool for school here!
We visited the Swiss Family Robinson's treehouse
rode all our fave rides - the kiddos were a little scared on this one at first, though they'd never admit it!
and how many of you have this same pic? From what year???
Of course we rode our fave!
Posed for more character shots with Mary Poppins
and Peter Pan of course
One more pic in front of the castle
and then it was time to go:)
So this we did say...
but not before we saw the parade:)
