There's a SHOW?

As I was ushering the kids to sit in front of the silhouette artist one by one, Jose was trying to entertain those who were finished.

They weren't pleased with having to sit in an alley way at the Magic Kingdom within minutes of entering for the very first time.

Exhibit A.

When the dancers started performing on Main Street, Jose was thoroughly confused. He had no idea there was more to entertain him than just rides at Disney World! (He had never ever ever ever been before. Not even to Disneyland like I have all my life. Isn't that just the saddest thing you've ever heard?)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_I8ChYrFYs

In less than 15 minutes all four kids had been captured permanently in silhouette, mounted and framed and we were able to meander down Main Street a little further.

And what did we find when we got near the castle?

Another show! Seriously, Jose was stoked. Lexi was stoked. She was bouncing in her stroller so hard I thought she'd break it.

I was stuck in that position and ... It took 4 strapping young boys to hoist me back on my feet
Personally, I'm a popper! I love me some black heads.

I love that Jose was excited about the shows!

I remember my first trip to disneyland and I couldn't believe that we could see snow white and Alladin for "free".

It was so cute. There was SO much I had to prep him for, it never even occurred to me to tell him about all the shows! You should have seen him at parade time... Running for cover.

Your pictures are just stunning! Love all the video too.
The shows at WDW just blow away the shows at DLR. Everything is on a grand'er scale. I guess there is no room at DLR, being surrounded by a city and all.

Sending get well wishes to Kyle . I know how awful this thing makes you feel. Nova said "I hope he feels better, I'm worried about him" It was love at first sight for her.


We already did the H1N1 thing around here in July. Nova's school had the biggest outbreak out of any school in Clark County.

Awe, please thank Nova for us! He's crashed out now but I'll tell him when I wake him up in a bit.

I didn't realize you guys had been through this already! It's a stinker isn't it? So far it's just Kyle, but... It ain't over till I sing!

Again, your pictures are amazing!

I loved watching Marc's reactions to things at Disney, it was just so freaking cute when he would get excited.

I felt the same way watching Jose! It was so fun watching him get excited over the little things that I may not have even noticed otherwise.

I got both the little girls he same hair scrunchy at DTD, and I just put them back in my "you don't know we're going to Disney but I've got to start repacking things" box! The Princesses/Fairies all got a big kick out of those hair bands...

Thank you! The silhouettes are my favorite souvenir from the entire trip.

I love the Disney cookbooks! I cooked Disney meals for months before our trip with recipes I found on the internet from different Disney chefs but I thought it would be fun to try some new ones!

And heck yeah, everyone's invited! After all I cook for six every day of my life... what's a few dozen more?

I love the Tinkerbell light and package you had for the room. Would you mind sharing where you ordered that stuff from? We leave in less than 2 weeks and this is a magical trip for our son for all he has overcome this past year and that would be a great topper for him.

Oh congratulations on the magical trip! Truthfully the moment our kids opened the door and saw everything set up was phenomenal. And it's all done by the Disney Florists! They just started doing these 'in room celebrations' this year; HERE'S the link to their web page so you can see the general things they offer, but when you call to order you can specialize anything extra you may wish to have. (The way we added Minnie and the chocolate box.) The Disney Florists absolutely go out of their way to make your order special. (They used to have a smaller package than the Grand Welcome; but if you're willing to go Grand, go for it!)

They'll ask you when you would like the celebration set up, and you can pick a time frame (I believe it was a two hour time frame) to help be certain you're out of the room when they come to surprise you. They like to wait till at least the second day of your visit in case you have to change rooms or anything.

But I digress. I hope your son does indeed have a magical trip!

I'm surprised you guys even wanted to ride Kali...it looked cold!

I'm guessing it was cold, and that is why Snow White has "fake hands"?
