Truly Magical!

There really is NOTHING like it! We had a truly magical time at Disney World this week! It was so fun to be just the four of us and spend some really great time together! We just can't believe how great the kids did on the trip! We are so proud of them! We packed a TON into our days there! Jack LOVED all the big rides and Lucy was thrilled with all the characters and parades! Lucy's excitement was so fun! She was just like Jack was two years ago when we took him! Nunno made SO many great shirts for us!! They were awesome and made the trip even more special! We had so many people stop us and ask where we got our fun clothes!!!! 
We are back home and had a blast.... but we may need a week to recover ...but it was worth it!!

We had the BEST time counting down for our trip! The kids alternated nights pulling a ring off!


We got to Disney World shortly after lunch on Saturday. We were greeted by extreme thunderstorms and tornado warnings! We waited it out about an hour and headed over to Magic Kingdom in the rain! We got soaking wet and LOVED it! The lines were short and we had a fun time on our first day!
We headed to dinner at the Grand Floridian that night! We had so much fun meeting Cinderella, Prince Charming, the evil stepmother and stepsisters!

Wet Leonards!

Happy to be at Disney World!

LONG first day! 

Day 2 - Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom
We started our day back in Magic Kingdom and got on several rides before lunch at The Crystal Palace with Winnie the Pooh and friends! We headed to Animal Kingdom for the afternoon where we saw the Jammin' Jungle Parade and Jack rode Expedition Everist!!!! That evening we headed to Epcot to walk around and see the big fireworks show there! This was a VERY long day...we probably didnt take enough the one "not so magical" part of our trip.... Lucy threw up ALL OVER ME on the Disney bus leaving Epcot. It was about 10:00pm... She had fallen asleep in the stroller and I picked her up to get on the bus. It was as bad as you can imagine. case anyone needs to know, the Wilderness Lodge DOES have laundry facilities available. Gracious. 

Another VERY long day!

Day 3- Epcot/Magic Kingdom and Movies on the Beach!
We started our 3rd day SUPER early in Epcot! We had a breakfast at Norway with the princesses! It was so fun! We got to see so many of them and Lucy got to participate in a princess processional around the restaurant! She held hands with Snow White! We walked out of there and into a VERY long line to meet Elsa and Ana! The boys headed out to catch some rides. Lucy was sooooo good waiting in line! I can't believe how patient she was with the wait! We were excited to meet the Frozen princesses! We headed back to Magic Kingdom for the afternoon to ride a few more things and even squeezed in a lunch at Belle's castle! It was so pretty!!!! Then we headed back to Wilderness Lodge to play, have dinner and watch a movie on the beach! 

 Day 4 - Hollywood Studios and Magic Kingdom
Once again, we started our day very early and got to Hollywood Studios before they opened! We went straight to the Toy Story ride and got in line! It was a super fun ride and both kids LOVED it! The boys headed to some big rides (Star Wars, Tower of Terror) while Lucy and I saw the Little Mermaid show! We all went to the Disney Junior show and had a yummy lunch! We saw the big stunt show too! That was too cool! We headed back to take a break in the hotel and recharge! Then we went to Magic Kingdom to squeeze in a few rides before dinner! We had dinner at Chef Mickey at The Contemporary Resort! That was so fun!!! Then we went back to Magic Kingdom to ride LOTS more and see the fireworks! We were in the park until it closed! The kids were hanging in there and there were almost NO lines! TOO FUN! (It's kind of making me tired to even remember all we did! Ha!)

Day 5 - Magic Kingdom
We ended our trip with an early breakfast at Ohana with Lilo and Stitch! The food was great and it was so fun! We headed back to Magic Kingdom for some last minute fun before heading out! The trip was absolutely amazing and magical!
