I had perfect intentions of writing this blog for each day that we were here. But, as you can see that didn’t quite happen. I would love to tell you that we have been busy running around with a couple of little kids enjoying everything there is to love about Disney. But that would be a lie.
In fact, it is just the 3 of us kids here and the youngest is 15 – about to be 16. But that doesn’t stop us from enjoying everything. The past two days have been incredibly fun, and also a little stressful. Riding rides, eating good food, meeting Anna and Elsa, and walking miles and miles.
The stressful part was my wife losing her purse on the Buzz Lightyear. The good news is that we got it back – the next morning. Fully intact including a brand new set of tire tracks across both the front and the back of the bag. We were pretty stressed at the ride when they couldn’t find it. But, a fantastic guest relations person named Sylvia was able to put our minds a little more at ease.
Day 3 included two of the kids – my wife and son – riding Splash mountain before we all went to Big Thunder. Afterwards, my son attempted to beat me at Buzz Lightyear’s ride – which he was able to finally do. It was almost 2am by the time we got back to the room, but you have to relax at some point.
Our last day at Disney was a “Frozen”, which unfortunately did not include the actual weather. We bought a Frozen package which got us preferred seating/standing at the morning parade, snacks – including much needed ice cream, preferred seating at a sing-a-long, and a Frozen themed dessert party. Even the fireworks were Frozen themed – which still didn’t help with the heat at 930pm.
Mixed in we managed to have some good meals – breakfast at Whispering Canyon was not just entertaining, but also good. But, the “big” meal was at Cinderella’s Royal Table inside of the castle. We got to have photos taken with Cinderella before dinner, and the got to see and take pictures with Ariel, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, and Jasmine. Oh yes – and the food was good too.
For me, the best part was the entire trip. But, if I had to pick one part it was getting the chance to spend quality time with my son while he laughed about my screaming through Tower of Terror and Rockin Rollercoaster. Disney is certainly not for everyone, but they certainly do know how to take care of their guests and make all of the kids happy – even those that are over 50.
