We had a wonderful trip to Disney World!! We flew down on Sunday and enjoyed the Magical Express service that those smart people at Disney have come up with. We said good-bye to our bags on the curb at the Birmingham airport and the next time we saw them was in our room at our hotel. Nice. Thank you Disney for making our trip down magical. We settled into our room at the beautiful Polynesian Resort at Disney World. We had booked at "garden view" room (which is usually code for parking lot view) but we were thrilled to find our room had a lovely view of a little strip of quiet beach - more Disney magic . . . thanks again! I was really hoping that we would be one of the chosen families that gets to spend the night in the castle but no such luck on this trip. Oh well. Our hotel was wonderful. The room was really spacious and you really had a wonderful feeling of being on a vacation with the Polynesian theme. Best of all was the location. We were right on the monorail and just moments from the Magic Kingdom. The first night we headed next door to the Grand Floridian Resort for a fun princess dinner buffet with Cinderella, the step sisters, Prince Charming and the whole gang. Claire wore her Snow White dress because she is her favorite princess (except for Belle who is also her favorite princess). The scene at the dinner was a little bit of Las Vegas (the buffet part) and a little bit of a school cafeteria (the LOUD children part) but overall the food was good and it was fun to see that characters.
We took some fun pictures of Claire on the the beach at the hotel before tucking the kids away dreaming of the fun to come the next day at the Magic Kingdom!
So here we are - the quintessential American photo! We had a blast at the Magic Kingdom. We didn't get much past Fantasy Land the first day. We spent a lot of time waiting in line and riding on Dumbo. Claire loved Dumbo and cried when she had to get off. She enjoyed all of the rides she went on -even some of the "scarier" ones like Pirates of the Caribbean. We headed back to the hotel for a late afternoon nap then came back in at dinner time with fresh legs for the next part of our adventure . . . dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table at the castle. I'm not sure who was more excited me or Claire. I honestly wish I had been able to dress up like a princess too.
