"It's a Small Town" and "Slow Pass" - 3 days in Disney 1/2012
Hello and welcome to my very first trip report! We just got back from Disney this past Sunday. We were in Florida from 1/15-1/22 and our Disney days were 1/16, 1/17, and 1/20, plus Downtown Disney on the last day of the trip!
As for who we are...(copied from my pre trip report!)
My name is Dara, I'm 33 yrs old, and looove Disney, though I have not been there nearly enough times in my life as of yet! My husband and I went together to Disney when we were in college (spring break!) and did such things as wander into Chef Mickey's not even knowing it was a character meal and riding in the front of the monorail and receiving Mickey Mouse licenses...totally unplanned, unappreciated at the time Disney Magic.
This is me in 3/07 with my then almost 2 yr old dd (now 6) and my now 4 yr old ds in my belly!
My husband is Dave, not as much into Disney as I am, but enough into it that he fits in small trips for us here and there.
Here we are with Chip and Dale in 12/07 with our then 2.5 yr old dd and our then 6 mos old ds - who came down with bronchiolitis while we were there and did not quite enjoy the magic!
My 6 yr old is Gabbie. She's in 1st grade and loves the princesses, Jessie from Toy Story, Minnie, Mary Poppins, etc. etc. She is very excited to go back and this time collect signatures from characters. Though she thinks if she doesn't meet a character she will just write his/her name for him/her!
Here she is at age 4 with her then almost 2 yr old brother meeting Cinderella. She had made pictures for the princesses (and pooh) and passed them out as we met them.
My 4 yr old is Zachary. He's very into Toy Story and watches all 3 movies over and over. He loves Cars as well and sleeps with a stuffed Sorcerer Mickey (and now a stuffed Woody as well). He may just be tall enough to ride Splash Mountain and thinks he wants to try it!
Here he is when he was 2, meeting Tigger. He just loved the characters even when he was 6 mos and sick, and I think this trip should be awesome for him character wise!
Finally, we have Simon, who is 17 months old - the same age my dd was on her first trip to DLR! He's most likely going to be dragged along and made to go along with everything we do, but as long as he is not scared of the characters, hopefully he'll get some time with them as well! Simon loves animals, books, balls, cars and trains, and his big brother and sister!
Here is the little guy!
Hope you'll join me in reliving our trip!
