I too have learned there is no reason to do the parks commando style....took me 10 trips to get to that point though

I love the London scene on PPF too!! Last summer my daughter and I took my 4 year old niece on HM and she wasn't scared at all....but in the doom buggy behind us her 9 year old sister was in meltdown mode. It's funny how every child reacts differently to different situations.

Your pictures are fabulous! Can't wait to see more!!

Thanks Sara! Believe it or not, we have never dined at LTT. The food just doesn't appeal to me. But I definitely would have been game to try it for breakfast during the CP rehab. I have yet to meet a breakfast that I didn't like!

I hear ya about the commando-tendancies! They are hard to break. Especially if you were indoctrinated in the ways of TGM, as I was for the kids' first trip back in 2007. Everytime I do something against the rules (such as riding the Carrousel as our 2nd ride at 9:05am in Fantasyland) I have to fight all of the TGM voices in my head telling me what a mistake I am making!

Yes, we really had a great 1st morning in the Magic Kingdom. It was my favourite park touring of the trip!

Great morning at MK. Fantastic that you got on Dumbo without all the waiting....Dumbo and Peter Pan are still two of my favourites at MK.

What a great morning! Peter Pan is my favorite ride in Fantasyland too! When I ride it, I feel like I'm instantly 5 again!

Everything is going so smoothly!!

Oh the Dumbo Dash! I just love it! Usually we participate in it starting at the main rope drop, but one time we did have an 8:00 CP ADR and made it to the Fantasyland Rope Drop and on that first Dumbo ride. My youngest still talks about "winning" the Dumbo Dash because we were there first!

Your pictures are gorgeous Trish! So vibrant and colorful!

Sounds like you are having a wonderful morning. I really would like to take an extra long trip sometime so that I could feel like we could take it easy and go with the flow - I try to do that, but I'm not always successful

Hi! I am SO in on this trip report. I like the fact that you are willing to report the ups and downs that happen on a vacation. I can relate so much! Adorable family! looks like you had a great time all in all. I wish I could sprinkle some pixie dust on your husband and make him love Disney like the rest of us do. Since my husband may love Disney even more than I do, I'll use your trip reort to remind me how blessed I am. Love the report...can't wait for more.

Enjoying your trip report, and looking forward to your next installment.

Unfortunately, my husband sounds EXACTLY like yours. So, I know what you mean by traveling with someone who does not enjoy being at WDW.

I ADORE the pictures of the kids awaiting rope drop from behind. Adorable and such a cute perspective. I dont' wonder why your friends wanted you to photograph their wedding reception. You have quite a knack!!

I LOVE your photos! I feel like you are really capturing the feeling of being there. It sounds like you guys were having a great morning. I also like that pic of the kids running off to Frontierland - you can tell how excited they are, even from behind.

This morning seemed to go well! PP is my absolute favorite Fantasyland ride (tied with Philharmagic, which I guess isn't really a ride!)-- glad Declan loved the HM so much!!
