A Tale of WDW in the "Terrible 2s" - Days 3 & 4 Completed =)

Hello everyone and welcome to my Trip Report of our recent trip to WDW with my 2 year old DS.

Here is a link to my PTR if anyone is interested:

http://disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2237497

Let me provide some background information about my title. When my DS was 18-24 months old he was very challenging. There was a lot of running away from me in public, screaming, tantrums - the whole enchilada. Then all of the sudden when DS turned 2 he totally changed. He turned into the sweetest, most agreeable little boy. You could take him anywhere and people would rave about how cute and good he was. He also developed wonderful manners, always saying please and thank you. I was such a proud mommy.....well you know how in the Bible it says "pride comes before the fall"? Boy did it ever! Fast forward to about a month ago when the terrible 2s emerged with a vengeance - we're talking screaming, hitting, total defiance.

Needless to say, I started to get nervous about taking this child to Disney World.

So, how did it turn out????

Well, if you were at CBR on Thursday, that child running around shoeless in the food court at lunch time? Yeah, that was my DS. And the mommy trying to contain him who looked exhausted? Yeah, that was me.

Yes, we had our challenges, but we had our wonderful moments too and overall, I am so glad we did it and I can't wait to tell you all about it.

I cant wait to hear this story I too know all about the terrible two's. I am hoping ours are finishing up just in time for the trip. The story about the food court is classic. I am sure you can laugh about it now but at the time its not funny at all.

Well I am glad you enjoyed the time none the less and I will catch up on your TR when we return.

OK, let's talk about the Who's, When's, and Where's of the trip:

The Who's

Gabe - my wild son, the star of the show Gabe will be 3 in December so he is 2.75 years old



Me - Joy, aka mommy.

DH - Steve, aka daddy.

Recently DS became obsessed with stealing my camera and taking pictures - this continued througout our trip, so lots of the pictures I have were taken by a 2 year old. Also, lots of my pictures are blurry due to a smudged up camera lens.

This picture of DH and I was taken by DS and it cracks me up - mommy and daddy from Gabe's perspective.



Mimi - my mom, Gabe's grandma

PopPop - my dad, Gabe's grandpa



The When's

We live in South Florida and drive to WDW so we take shorter, more frequent trips. For this trip we were there for 4 days and 3 nights, September 15th - September 18th. The 18th was PopPop's birthday so we celebrated that during our trip.

The Where's

Over our many trips I have discovered that I am truly a "moderate" kind of girl. I love the theming of the moderates and I love the outdoor entrances and walking to the food court to fill up my mug. For our last 3 trips we have stayed at POFQ, but for this trip we decided to try something different and stay at CBR for the first time. So we were at Caribbean Beach Resort for 3 nights with free dining.
