Disney World 2009 part 1

I am a little late in this posting but better late than never!

A few weeks ago Matts parents, Matt, and I and the girls all ventured down to Orlando to see Mickey. I have to admit I was not thrilled with the idea of the 11 hour car ride but we packed plenty of snacks and DVDs and made about 5 stops and the girls did very well. We got to our room around 1AM and had a hard time getting the girls to sleep since they were over tired, but other than that it was smooth sailing.

The first full day we were there we were involved with changing rooms and settling in, so we did not do too much more. Little did we know that this day was going to be one of only 2 sunny days we were going to have.

We were in constant rain the entire time, but we did not let that stop us! Well, we did a little but that was only because the parks basically shut down. Because of all this rain, the pictures arent exactly plentiful. We did what we could....

Magic Kingdom day was a long one. It started out with a character breakfast. The girls love all the characters... from afar. When Goofy approached Leah it was all over. When he touched her, I literally thought she had jumped out of her skin. I have never seen either of them so afraid. Minnie got the closest to Hannah but she still was not welcome. I do not even think the girls ate that day. Once they were across the room, both girls happily told them Bye Bye and waved.

Theres a seven foot dog trying to touch me.
(Goofy just touched her)

This was about as good as we could get

After breakfast we went to the park and seeing Disney through the eyes of my 19 month olds was wonderful. I honestly had more fun this time and did not ride very much at all than I ever have before. Leah was constantly asking what everything was, and then said bye bye to said item as we passed that. (Whas dat? (a rock) Wock? (yes) Bye bye wock) To everything. And she found any Mickey shape that was in the viscinity. "Hiiiiii Minnie!"

Leah also was severely attached to Gammy. I did not ride many things with her as she was perfectly content to stay with Gammy the entire time. So Hannah was my assigned child for the entire trip, which always makes Hannah happy.

Both girls were great little riders and were not afraid of much. Leah did not like for things to blow on her, but Hannah just watched everything around her and took it all in.

And in true Disney fashion, when they were tired, they fell asleep whereever they were.

She also missed the winnie the pooh ride.

We all had a great day in Magic Kingdom and we all crashed that night.

Then the rain came...
