Disney. It’s so wonderful. Especially seeing it through the eyes of Ellie and Ollie who have never been before. I was a little bit nervous about taking Ollie on the barnstormer — a small rollercoaster — only to have him sit next to me the whole time, repeating over and over "I love this!" And that was pretty much how the whole day went. Here are a few quick pictures.
This is the boatride out to the Wilderness Campground for the Hoop de do Review last night.
We got up at 0’dark thirty to head off for the Magic Kingdom. Look, it’s still dark! We were at the very front of the line, which was incredibly cool.
We rode the tea cups (and lots of other rides).
Got our faces painted.
And met Pooh, Tiger, Piglet, and Eyeore!
By the time we got back to Main Street to see the parade, it was A LOT more crowded than when we entered the park at 7:00 am.
The parade was wonderful, too! After a nap and a swim at our hotel, we headed out to Downtown Disney for ice cream sundaes and a little bit of shopping. The Judge is going to be overjoyed when he sees all of Ollie’s new weaponry, including a pirate sword and a very cool wooden pistol that beams a pirate silhouette in the dark (how do they come up with this things?)
Ellie, who was a trooper all day, finally gave up on the bus ride home.
And Ollie was right behind her.
It was a fabulous day. We’re off to Animal Kingdom in about seven hours. I hope I survive!
