Six months of secrets.
Six months of excited frustration.
Six months of teasing and taunting the six year old and he had no idea.
Six days of amazing Disney fun.
A lifetime of memories and 1000 pictures!
Don't worry. I won't post them all here.
Day 1:Arrival / Downtown Disney
|We woke DJ at four something in the AM and told him to pack a bag we were going to Disney. He didn't believe us.|
|First flight ever. He loved it.|
|At Caribbean Beach Resort check-in they gave him a sword and an eye patch. He had no idea why.|
|We booked the Pirates of the Caribbean room. There was pirate shit everywhere.|
|He loved these guys.|
|My favorite place. I didn't want to leave.|
Day 2:Magic Kingdom, Part 1
|Pirate treasure adventure.|
|Taking the pirate pledge!|
|Joining the pirate parade!|
|We stayed late to see the fireworks at each of the four main parks||.|
|I didn't want to leave the Biergarten. Ever.|
|Big Guy and Little Guy.|
Day 4:Animal Kingdom
|Breakfast of champions.|
|While out on the Savannah Truck tour it began to rain.|
|This giraffe took shelter right next to the trail.|
|Playing in the mud.|
|Great, really amazing food at the Yak & Yeti. Don't let the name scare you away.|
|Diggin' up dinosaur bones.|
Day 5:Magic Kingdom Part 2
|Invasion of the ducks. They are everywhere.|
|We used every form of transportation Disney had to offer. This is the view from the ferry.|
|Since we had been there, 2 days before, the fall elves came to visit and decorated all of Magic Kingdom.|
|When choosing the path to the Haunted Mansion...take the cemetery path. Too funny.|
|Pirate mouse ears.|
|Sword in the stone. I think he pulled something but not the sword.|
|Stand anywhere long enough and a parade breaks out.|
|The pumpkin faces killed me.|
|Boat ride to the Polynesian Resort for the Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show.|
|For every duck there are 1 million of these guys.|
|For the girls. Or guys.|
|For the guys. Or girls.|
|For the pyromaniacs.|
|Where's the monkey chow?|
|This show was a blast.|
|My husband was an extra.|
|The 50's Diner waitress managed to get him to set the table. Spectacular comfort food and plentiful!|
|Jedi Training Academy. Awe. Some. Sauce.|
|This lady had the patience of a saint.|
|Most of this I have on video. DJ actually hassled the Storm Troopers. They were all good sports.|
|DJ was picked to help in this stunt show. He drove a remote control car!|
For those of you who made it to the bottom I hope I didn't bore you too much.
It truly was the trip of a lifetime. Mostly because we probably will never be able to afford to go again. :)
Thanks for coming!
