Talking Our WDW Adventure a Californian POV

I thought it would be fun to write a trip report in my BLOG and on disboards so I can share all of the adventures and memories we had on our recent vacation to Florida and Walt Disney World.

First off, being from California a frequent Disneyland attender we had no idea what to expect and what was in store for us at WDW. I had been to WDW 15 years ago with my ex husband on our honeymoon so my recollection was a bit hazy and there was SO MUCH more new stuff there since then. Plus I did not have my kiddies with me which always make your Disney experience so much different.

The cast of this wonderful adventure:

DH- Leo (40)- Elementary School Principal Extraordinaire, Goofy reincarnated, My Disney Soulmate
ME - Marianne (30 something)- Scrapbook entrepreneur, Mickey FANATIC
DS (13) Brandon - All around great kid, mumbles a lot, video game addict, Disney makes him smile which warms Mom's heart
DD (6) Maggie Kate - Sweetheart, DIVA, Drama Princess (I'm a Drama Princess, not a Drama Queen MOMMY!) , STITCH LOVER (can recite word for word Lilo and Stitch movie) ,afraid of almost every ride in Disney

I'm going to add a few pictures, but excuse the quality since on the first day of our great adventure my dh LOST his backpack with our camera so all of the photos were taken with disposible cameras that we had to purchase in the park SIGH and the pictures turned out pretty bad. SO DH has to take us back to WDW because I need to get some good pictures. I'm a scrapbooker after all!

Day 1 Magic Kingdom and Paradise Lost
Day 2 MGM and the search for STITCH
Day 3 Quest for the Almighty Churro

Keep it coming

Ok - I loved your first day report! I laughed outloud about the red state reminder! And your daughter , what a riot that she refused to ride the same rides she loved in DL. I'm looking forward to the rest of the report.

I have enjoyed your first day report too. Interesting we were just in Disneyland for the first time and I commented on how most of the FL rides in Calif were half in / half out while in DW they are all inside. I knew exactly what your daughter was talking about.

I'm sorry about your backpack. Usually you always get stuff back in Disney. You'll just have to plan another trip.
