A family that goes to Disney together… stays together

We are officially in Longmeadow, and I’ve been without internet access for a week.  So, a Saturday date night has turned into Jordan and I working independently on our computers at Starbucks – and I have 9 minutes to post.  So, my apologies for the brevity here, but I go back to work on Monday, so I figure something is better than nothing!!

We had a super fun Christmas vacation in Florida with the Linville’s.

We all flew into Orlando on Sun 12/20 and stayed on the Disney property (the Contemporary – walking distance to Magic Kingdom!)  We went to Magic Kingdom on Mon and Wed.  I’m obviously a huge fan of the fast pass and the magic hour, where people who stay on the resort get first dibs at the park!  We were able to try out a lot of rides and meet a lot of princesses through these…. Natalie met Belle, Merida, Cinderella, Rapunzel, Elsa and Anna.  (Elliott met all but Merida – he opted to ride the train around the park with Dad, while Nat and I waited in line.)

So great to meet you - I feel like we've known each other for years!  Wanna come over for dinner?

The kids’ favorite ride was Peter Pan’s flight – they are very into Tinker Bell and Peter Pan, from what they know of Jake and the Neverland Pirates.  Natalie’s second favorite was Its a Small World.  Elliott’s second favorite was Goofy’s Barnstormer.  (He literally went on it 10 times – its the most intense roller coaster a 2-year-old could go on… I see Space Mountain and Thunder Mountain in this boy’s future.  Nat, on the other hand, was pretty upset we even took her on it.)

What do you say?  Another Dumbo ride?

My favorite time was post-Disney, with a semi-relaxing time in Venice.  (When is “vacation” really a vacation when you have a 2 and 5-year-old?!?)

The beach on Christmas day - we'll take it!
