After a year and a half of planning, the BIG Disney Trip has come and gone. We had a blast but part of me is a bit depressed about this. Last Christmas Matts parents turned what we thought was going to be a long Disney World vacation into part Disney/ part Cruise. Best gift ever.
We flew down this time around. After our trip in May we decided we could not possibly drive down again with a newborn, even 4 months later and splurged on the flight. Heaven. The girls were almost as excited about flying as they were about Disney. No clue why Hannahs smile is so weird here.

To cover some highlights...
On our first day in Magic Kingdom we got to go behind the wall of construction to see Belles Storytime, a new attraction not quite open in Fantasyland. It is adorable. All kids who want to participate (and a few adults who may not want to) can, as they help reenact the story of how Belle fell in love with Beast. Leah played Phillipe, Belles horse, but really just wanted to give Belle the flower she picked for her outside the attraction. Hannah was happy sitting by mommy.
And of course we saw many other princesses and characters, gave kisses to some... even danced with a few. And we got everyones autograph. Again. Some we got duplicates even.
Yup... we stand in a lot of lines for those autographs. All worth it so the girls can see their "friends".
For their birthday dinner we ate at our all time favorite,
Ohana's. even the men wore their leis
One of the favorite rides...and another where I got soaked...
And a little cooling off...
So many wonderful moments and the week FLEW by... and then it was time to pack up. Sad. And get on the Disney Dream Cruise Ship. Oh So Happy!
