{Universal Studios}

Day 2 we ventured to Universal Studios! We went straight (or almost straight) to the new Toy Story ride since the kids love Toy Story. The wait was over an hour so it gave us lots of time to play with our cameras and try to entertain rediculously bored children. Here are a few random snap shots of our adventure in line to see Woody...

we finally got our 3-D glasses towards the end of the wait....ahhhh almost there!!

And in just about 5 minutes, it was all over!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And then after that Donnell had just about had it, so we cut the day short to try and give the kids some down time.
After Rainforest Cafe that night I tought the kids would crash as soon as we got back to the hotel, but no, they were still running on excitement!!!! They were all looking forward to Animal Kingdom the next day (so was I:)

{Magic Kingdom Part III}

After the lil kids and big kids had a bit of a rest and some grub we ventured back to Magic Kingdom that night to see the Parade of Lights, which was awesome! The art and imagination that goes into Disney events is over the top, I cant even put it in words. That night made me understand why people loive Disney World so much, it is so out of this world and you cant help but smile in amazement. Sorry I cant share a lot of the pics from the parade, I honestly have not edited them, but here is Micky!

Here is the "mother of the year" for taking her adorable children on a Disney Vacation...

And here is Cinderella's Castle all decorated for winter, this picture does not do the castle justice on how cool and, yes I am going to use the word again, amazing it was...

We also saw the BEST firework show we have ever seen this night. Sorry I didnt take pictures, you will have to go yourself to see it, but let me tell you, you need to this in your lifetime!!!
So here I am done with Day 1...more to come...

{Magic Kingdom Part II}

To take a break from the rides take a seat at The Paint Shop to become a character yourself..

Among many things, you could be Goofy..

a superhero...

Or a princess!..

Don't miss Micky's parade!!!

Did I tell you there were zillions of people there?

OK, time to get rested up to come back later for the night time fun!!!

{Magic Kingdom Part I}

When on the ferry going to The Magic Kingdom you must first and foremost act like a kid, even if that includes hanging upside down....

Immediately upon entering the park you must put on Mickey ears and a huge smile...

Yes, even pirates have Mickey ears these days..

Minnie loves polka dots..

Watch out Micky Mouse!!!

Then you must ride Dumbo to get the aerial view of the park!

More to come, there are so many pictures!!!!
