Walt Disney World Vacation: Day 1

As I mentioned last Friday, last week the boy and I were vacationing in Disney World with his family! After flying from New Orleans to Orlando, which was the boy's niece's & nephew's first plane on which they did surprisingly well,

we checked into our hotel room at the Polynesian resort, and left for dinner at Beaches and Cream at the Beach Club Resort where I had a roast beef sandwich

and split a fudge mud slide with the boy for dessert.

The following morning we were off to the Magic Kingdom, where we first ran over to Space Mountain and were greeted with only a 10 minute wait. Honestly, the day we chose to visit this park (Friday the 16th), was perfect because most rides didn't really have a wait. So to make things a little shorter here's a list of the rides I rode (what each person rode was a little different considering that we were with a 2-year-old who wasn't quite tall enough for all the "scary ride") and characters met.

And maybe you noticed a little makeover in that last picture? Because yes, the boy's niece spent some time at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and came out transformed as Rapunzel!
I was originally planning on recapping both day 1 & 2 today, but it looks like this post has already been a little long. So you'll just have to wait until tomorrow to hear about Epcot. Until then, I hope you have a magical day!

And just for fun, what's your favorite ride at the Magical Kingdom? (I'd have to go with a tie between Space Mountain, Big Thunder, & Pirates.)


  1. Oh fun! I think it would be fun to go to Disney World with children - so fun to see the magic of that place through their eyes. I love all the photos!

    I have never been there, but i have been to Epcot so I am anxious to see what you thought about Epcot!

  2. What a great vacation! That dessert looks amazing!

  3. I was at Disney World, too! Well, I went on January 6. It was a lot of fun, but packed!
