more from florida...

Our last couple of days have been too jam packed to do any blogging, so I have a little catching up to do. I will just give you a quick overview of what we've been up to, and then hopefully can post more pics and stories from our trip when we get back! We are having the best time... I really don't know if I have words to explain it. I have heard it many many times before and always thought it was kind of corny, but it really is just MAGICAL here. Disney thinks of every detail!

We spent all day Wednesday at Magic Kingdom, trying to find our way around, going on a few rides, watching shows, meeting a few characters...
... and my favorite, watching them light up the Cinderella castle with Christmas lights.
Thursday we spent at Animal Kingdom... a definite favorite of our family. (The kids all said they liked it better than Magic Kingdom!) We went on an African safari, ate lunch at the Rainforest Cafe, rode the awesome rollercoaster Expedition Everest, and met some more characters.
Thursday night, we headed back over to Magic Kingdom for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party where they had free cookies and cocoa, fake snow on Main Street, an amazing fireworks display set to Christmas music, and a holiday lights parade.
It was a long day and a late night, so we spent today sleeping in and relaxing at our resort (the kids are sitting in the hot tub outside in the rain right now!) Tomorrow is suppose to be cool, but sunny so we are going to be heading to Seaworld for the day. Sunday our flight leaves at 7am and we have a 45 min. drive to the airport and still need to turn in our rental car. Needless to say it is going to be an EARLY morning!

I am so jealous!!! We were there in 2008 and fell in love. Anthony keeps asking when we are going back and I cannot wait to take the whole family again. Glad you are having fun, relax, and enjoy your down time. You deserve it!

My kids talk about Disney almost daily. Unless you have been there, you are right Ria, people don't get it. They think of every last detail. No other place compares--especially for children.
