Isn't Soarin' the best?! I absolutely love that ride, I even kick my feet back and forth like a little kid - and it never fails, I lift them up without even thinking about it on the part where you go towards the mtn & then pull up last minute. The smells, the breeze - it's just an awesome ride!

UGH! I know!! I hate to even think about it!
Soarin' is amazing!!! I loved it, was still nervous, but loved it!

Can't wait to see where you go next, what character you meet, and what you buy!!
Just a little update Still REALLY tired from the Saints celebration! The kids got off two hours early today for the Saints parade in New Orleans!

That was the "emergency" that I told you about! It was horrible...dang strollers!! We loved it too!!! Soarin' is Abby's absolute favorite now! I should update soon.

I think you will be fine! It really does have it's moments where you are like "WOAH..you are on a ride...you are not really flying" haha It was scary, but happy it was all ok in the end!

Love the kids clothes - and that clippie is adorable! How scary about DS and the stroller - I'm so glad it wasn't anything too serious.

I'm so glad someone else calls Spaceship Earth "the ball". I just updated about our afternoon at Epcot and I wrote the same thing

And don't you just LOVE Soarin'? Such an amazing ride - makes me want to take a ride right now!

Can't wait for more!
THANK YOU!!!! I love your updates too!!! The clippie is so well made by Becky! I was so happy with her work!

HAHA we have always called it "the ball". I did read that on your TR...SO FUNNY! Great minds think alike.

Soarin' is a once in a lifetime ride!

I find Soarin to be such a relaxing ride, I even listen to the music at home sometimes, I'm so glad you overcame your fears to ride it
They ARE slippery!!! The old ones were NOT! We will rent from Orlando strollers next time!

Soarin is relaxing...I would love to get the music!!! Where did you find it??

Yes! That is right! Another update

Sorry to leave you so soon last update! We have been recovering from too much celebrating after our Saints won the Super Bowl!!! Our entire region has just stopped working and attending school to have fun and party Such a special moment!

Take some time to watch this amazing Disney commercial featuring the Saints (if you haven’t already seen it)!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uAOVdJ0Z-N0

I just LOVE seeing the gold and black Mickey balloons

Also, here is an article and pics of Drew Brees the day after the Super Bowl in the Magic Kingdom parade!!! Wish I would have been there for that!! (Compliments of the disboards)



http://www.disunplugged.com/2010/02/...-disney-world/

My husband and I have been in New Orleans the past TWO weekends having a blast and celebrating our wedding anniversary. It has been just GREAT! The players and coaches are amazing. Sean Peyton (head coach of the Saints) lives close to me, so some kids and their parents waited for him to get home from the airport outside his subdivision. He actually stuck the Lombardi Trophy out of his sunroof and they all got to touch it and take pics with it!! Class act. Quoting one of my favorite movies (Princess and the Frog)

“Dreams DO Come True in New Orleans!”

Ok---back to the TR--

Last I left you, we finished Soarin’ and were headed to Nemo!!



My husband took a phone call for work, so the kids and I hung out by the entrance. Aiden got a KICK out of the seagulls that say “Mine, Mine, Mine!” He would call to them “Heeeyyy birdies!” and then they would “reply” to him. He really thought he was making them do it. He was screaming and jumping up and down saying “I did it!”…everyone was laughing at him. We got some pretty funny video. Here they are checking out the birds.



We enjoyed the ride, like always. Abby just loves boarding the shells…such a cute touch!

Right when we got off of the ride, there was only 3 minutes until the next Turtle Talk with Crush show! We ran in and I encouraged Abby to go sit in the front in order to have a chance to get picked. I forgot to mention to sit in the center So, she sat to the far right where the CM placed her…and did not get picked. Maybe she will have much better luck later during the rest of the vacation? We shall see

BUT the show was great none the less. Crush was super funny and had all of us laughing so hard.



When we finished, we exited but could not resist the Nemo gift shop!! My daughter has a tradition of saving up money all year for Disney. She has an Ariel piggy bank and this girl seriously saves it ALL!! She saved up to $150 for this trip. We really wanted to get her Disney Dollars to make it more fun for her. Unfortunately (if you do not know already) the Disney Stores will not be carrying them anymore and they encouraged me to get them from the front desk at the Wilderness Lodge. I tried that, and they did not have any either. So, we just ended up getting her a gift card.

This moment was so sweet to me. She ended up picking a snow globe of the seagulls that said “Mine” in front of the ride to remember the funny moment with her brother!! She also splurged on Nemo bath toys for Aiden. How sweet is that




We had them send the gifts to the room so that we did not have to carry them with us. It took about two days for them to get back to the room----so don’t do it if you are leaving the following day!!

Up next…one of our favorites! Spaceship Earth!! Don’t you just LOVE the Michelangelo part where he is painting the ceiling? It gives me chills!!




Our ending “future” story was SOO funny.



We were laughing so hard that we were crying. The picture of my DD was horrible!! She was looking off and kind of had her mouth open. My DS had his pacifier in and my picture looked like a glamour shot! My head was kind of sideways and I had a big smile. My DH was the only one that looked normal. It just made the future scene that much funnier, though.

When exiting Spaceship Earth, we headed to the Character Spot to check out the wait. We had been walking right on all of the rides, but this was an exception. It was about a 40 minute wait, so we walked off and decided to come back later to try again.

Where were we going next? Back to Soarin’! Our fastpasses for my DH and DD were ready to be used and she was dying to show her Daddy the ride. On our way, we stopped and enjoyed a show from the JAMMitors! They were great.

Then, my DD spotted our first characters!!! I think it was too cold for them to come out the day before at the MK

Who did we see……………….
CONT ON NEXT POST

Chip and Dale!!! My kids LOVE them, so it was a nice surprise. I was anxious to see how my son was going to react to them this year now that he was a toddler. We knew he would do great and he did! He just loved the character interaction!!

At this point, I broke out a frame matting that I brought for the characters to sign. We would use it when we got home to frame a picture of the kids at WDW. Pics of the final product to come later in the TR! Chip and Dale so kindly signed it for us



We headed off to Soarin’. My DH and DD rode while Aiden and I took in the atmosphere and changed his diaper. When they got off, they both had huge smiles on their faces!! Such an amazing ride!

My son was getting ready to nap, so we loaded he and his sister in the stroller to help him doze off. Our plan was to fastpass Test Track and then head to the World Showcase to get on the friendship boat to lunch. I took out my iPhone to check the Test Track wait time and saw that it said “CL” which is code for CLOSED


What!!???


This was a total surprise. I had researched right up to our arrival, and the only ride that was scheduled to close was Splash Mountain. We decided to find a CM and make sure it was true. My DD was REALLY looking forward to trying TT.

UP NEXT: Say it isn’t so! Is Test Track REALLY closed? Which lunch spot do we chose? Stay tuned!

The Super Bowl commercials give me chills all the time...I'm such a sap!

We're usually at WDW during the Super Bowl (this year I went on a cruise and fouled everything up...such a pained existence, I tell you!) But I don't think I've ever seen them run the parade so quickly after. That would have been neat to see!

That's so sweet of your little girl to buy stuff for her brother! ...It's things like that which make me want to have kids. Adorable.

cute update - that's so nice that DD saved so much money to spend at WDW!!

My DF is a Saints fan (not many British people follow NFL, but he loves all sport so much!) but he couldn't watch the superbowl as it didn't start until 11.30pm UK time!! - he woke up in the middle of the night to check the final score!
Then we watched the whole thing on Monday night (recorded on Sky+, it's our version of TiVo!) - I'm finally learning the rules of the game, I think!! ...lol and I posted the Drew Brees 'Disney World' advert on my facebook page too, so magical!

Looking forward to reading more

Congrats to your Saints! We were pulling for them here as well (even though it was hard since they beat my Vikes! ). There are 3 former Sooners on the Saints roster, so we had to cheer for them! And, that footage of Drew Brees after the game, all teary eyed, holding his son - that was magical right there!

On to your update - I love the fact that Abby picked the snow globe in order to remember the moment with her brother, and the fact that she bought something for him. That is so sweet! You're doing a good job, mom!

I also think that is such a clever idea about the picture mat - I can't wait to see the finished product!

I hope that Test Track was just temporarily closed!

Congrats on the Saints win! My older son was rooting for the Colts, but my 8yr old son is a Saints fan (well, after the Jets, that is!) so he was psyched!

I love the kids fleece jackets! Did you get them in the parks?

So sweet, that Abby bought Aiden the snow globe and bath toys. We have tons of disney bath toys (seems like we are always at disney with one toddler!) and they still play with them at the beach, in the pool or in their water tables! Good investment!

Love your updates! Keep them coming!

That was so very sweet of your daughter to buy something for her brother! You gotta love that!

We love Spaceship Earth too! Even my DD likes it. And Soarin', Turtle Talk, and Nemo......... you rode all our favorites! Sounds like a great day so far.
