    Dakota-Celebrating 9th birthday

    We start off the day like every other. Getting up early and heading down to the breakfast buffet! I am trying to hurry along so that we can get to the park by opening, but that doesn't usually happen with 5 kids, plus dad doesn't like to be rushed! We put on the special matching t-shiorts that we made before we left. I am so psyched!!! I can't wait to share my favorite park with my children for the first time!!!

    We arrive at the park around 10am. The kids are all excited to ride the monorail. After getting through security and the turnstile we head down Main Street! The crane was still outside the Castle, but it still looks cool. We get to the castle just in time for Cinderella's Celebration! We have great seats!!! YEAH! The show starts and guess what, Dalton is still freaked from the day before!!! He screams and tries to fly over daddy's shoulder!!! Therapy bill just got bigger!:smooth: Daddy takes Dalton for a walk to get him somewhat away from the show. The rest of the kids absolutely loved the show. Dalton recovers nicely once he gets to meet Mickey Mouse! He runs up and gives him a huge hug!!! This is why I came! it brought tears to my eyes! The kids all get their picture with Mickey and we are off again.

    We head into the park and hit Small World first. After that we do Dumbo, the Carousel, and the Tea Cups over and over again! Luckily I didn't eat a big breakfast!

    We are off to Toontown! The kids absolutely love it there! We waited in line to meet the characters. Cinderella was a big hit as was Pooh Bear and Tigger. Then we are off to Mickey's house!!!
    We meet Mickey again and the kids are grinning from ear to ear!
    After Mickey we go on the Barnstormer 3 times!!! And then they are begging to go back on the Tea Cups!:eek:

    We grab a bite to eat at Cosmic Ray's. The kids had chicken nuggets. It is nice and cool in the restraunt!:jester:

    Off to the Tea Cups we go again. The crowds finally started to die down a little bit, but daddy is hot and a little grouchy so we decide to head back to the hotel. Of course as we head by the Castle, here comes Cinderella's Celebration again! We cover Dalton's ears and make a break for it! Luckily tomorrow is a pool day! It will give him a chance to recover !!!

    It sounds like we have a lot in common! LOL:jester:
    Three year olds can make a vacation very interesting to plan ( and then of course scrap the whole plan once they flip out!!)
