We started with a long, long drive Saturday, followed by a visit to Downtown Disney on Sunday!! Here we enjoyed eating at the Rainforest Cafe, playing and purchasing at the Lego Store (can we say AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!) and having a good time!!
Monday we headed to Sea World and we had a blast!! Daniel loved the dolphins and the whales the most! We even sat in the splash zone during the Shamu show and got soaked!! Daniel rode the Shamu coaster and Cassandra (my sis) and I rode the Cracken!! We saw plenty of other shows and had a great time. I highly recommend Sea World as a must see for the kids!!
Tuesday we headed to the Magic Kingdom and had a magic day! Daniel did great - he walked from 8:45 am to about 9:00 pm. He refused a stroller and insisted on keeping up with us. We rode everything in sight, except Space Mountain, which I wasn't comfortable putting him on just yet, even though he meets the height requirement. He especially LOVED the Haunted Mansion and the Pirates ride!! We never waited more than 20 minutes for a ride!! We watched the electrical parade and made it back to a porch of a building to watch the night time castle show and the fireworks. It was here I noticed Daniel could barely control his body movements and he was saying silly things we couldn't understand. I picked him up and he fell sound asleep in the matter of an instant on my shoulder. I sat on the porch and Troy laid a blanket over us and Daniel slept through the fireworks. He never even budged during the loud booms!! Troy took lots of pictures to show Daniel the next day!!
Wednesday was an easy day for us and we visited my mom at her campground and old friends came to visit. It was great to see them, including a very old friend of mine that I used to play with when I was young and when we lived in Orlando. I got to take my family by my old house and show them my elementary and middle schools. Daniel spent the night with my mom while we headed back to the condo.
Thursday Troy, Cassandra, Brett and I headed to Islands of Adventure to see the Wizarding World of Harry Potter!! Cassandra is 13 years younger than I am and when she read Harry Potter as a young teen she begged me to read it with her. I did and got hooked so this was great fun for the two of us to experience together! We rode the rides, drank butterbeer and had a great time. Cassandra and I also braved all the other coasters in the park, including the Hulk and one that shoots you straight up and back down!! I came home with Luna's second wand and a Gryffindor keychain!!
I'll be posting on my other blog, some tips and tricks for a frugal trip to some of the places we went in a few days!!!
