Day 1 of Disney

Megan, how excited are you about going to Disney World?
This excited...... And Nicole, are you excited?
Oh Yeah... so excited that she fell asleep during the ride to the park and was totally out for our grand entrance to the World Of Dreams!

It was super special to be able to have my parents with us for our trip.Megan's favorite part of the trip was seeing all the Disney characters... we saw every parade (at least twice)...

We had a great time on our first ride... Dumbo (Or Jumbo, as Megan calls it). Even Nicole seemed to like it.

When we weren't on rides, Nicole was a great little trooper and just kicked back and enjoyed the ride (and people watching).

Megan loved Cinderellas Golden Carousel.

And we ran into characters all over the place. Her favorite "impromptu" characters were Drizella, Anastasia, and Lady Tremaine---- those are Cinderella's mean stepsisters and stepmother. Megan was so taken with them but very cautious as well... after all, they were mean in the book. If you ask her now she'll tell you they were nice to her, but mean to Cinderella.
It was really sweet that she was so taken with them - Cinderella is actually the only Disney story that Megan knows. All the others have scary parts and she won't even listen to the books. Now that she has a "personal connection", I am excited to watch the movie with her.

After we finally pulled her away from Cinderella's family - we all rode, "It's a Small World" which of course everyone enjoyed.

Then it was onto other characters.... Megan was so taken with Minnie Mouse's house.
Then.... she got to meet the big guy and girl in person!!!!!

She just loved them and didn't want to say goodbye. She gave them both lots of hugs and kisses - it was very very sweet!

And Nicole.... we'll see just took it all in and smiled - a LOT!

Tom and Megan raced.....

And in the midst of all that fun.... more parades and shows. The "Dreams" show on the castle step was Megan's favorite.... Everytime we'd hear it starting, she'd beg to go see it again.
And it was generally a good break for Nicole as well.
The first day was a blast.... My little princess ended up singing herself to sleep on the bus ride back to the hotel (with Grandma as her pillow).
And Nicole (who slept a lot at the park), kept Granddad occupied with smiles and giggles.

Once we got back to the hotel, everyone crashed....
And that was just the first day!!!!!
