Great queuing area for Buzz and Woody...

You are going to be treasuring those photos of Parker... so cute ...

He's smaller than Andy now in Toy Story but one day

He's going to be the same size/age as Andy in Toy Story III...

Will have to remember that! Here's hoping the PnP will still work!

Cute, cute, cute Toy Story pix! I love all of those fun photo ops along the way. Have you guys been on a Disney cruise yet? They would love all the character interaction on the ship.

All caught up. I upgraded to windows 8 and lost all my bookmarks so all tr's are being read from the beginning again.

The resort looked so nice. The rooms are so cute.

Great pics with Buzz and Woody.

Makes me want to make the E's go in there next time, just for that! They haven't had a picture with Buzz since they were 1 and 2!
thanks, if you plan to do it, go right when they open to fly through the line, alot better than the 45 plus minute wait later in the day.

It's all so awesome! I cannot wait for him to see all this when we go in May. Toy Story is his absolute favorite and he will totally dis Woody and run to Buzz too! He LOVES Buzz - that's who he's gonna be for Halloween. Thanks for posting all these - great stuff! So cute how Parker was so excited. I hope Noelle keeps up the good work with the characters.
glad you enjoyed them, parker is going to be buzz this year as well...he had that and mr incredible last year but wore mr incredible instead so this year he still fits in buzz and wants that.

she always did good if we held her, it wasnt till the second week she would walk almost all the way to them on her own.

Looks like the kids had a blast, especially Parker.

All pics are so cute
he loved it, he had an excited dance this year where he would jump up and down really fast and try to fly like a bird.

Am I spying a certain t-shirt on a certain princess? It looks a bit familiar to me.
it was a great trip for parker to "get" the characters this trip, he loved every minute of it and the autographs.

yep that is the shirt from a very special dis chicago meet up.

parker wore his later in the trip.

well it seems to work different for everyone...some people try and stick straight to there schedule that they have at home and that works for us, we go a little different.

parker was 8 months on his first trip.
noelle was 13 months on tihs trip.

as far as naps, we just went about the day and did the parks pretty much like normal...when they were tired they just fell asleep in the stroller, or wanted to be held and we knew they were going to fall asleep in our arms, then we would put them in the stroller to sleep it off, and find something to do while she slept.

a few times, we would have one person just sit and relax with her while she slept...and the other took parker on a ride or show.

then we would swithc and the other would sit and wait.

the relax time was nice for the other parent, but of course parker wanted to keep going so it gave him some one on one time with each of us.

meals, were pretty much normal, just tried to order sometihng we knew she would share with us...or if not then we bought something that she would eat.

meltdowns, just try and take them out of the situation and everyone calm down, we had our share of those, and didnt always handle it right, but it happens, and everyone moves on.


just know that things wont go perfect, but there will be many perfect memerable moments each day and have fun.

having the extra help will be a plus for you, and dont forget that they will want out of the stroller and just hold your hand and walk around a little enjoy that, it is a fun time.
