Good Ole' Walt


Yes, we did it. I took the plunge. I went to Disney with my family. We are from Florida and we haven't taken our kids to Disney World. Most people would think that is ludacris.

I was not motivated AT ALL to be amongst 5 gazillion people and to stand in line for a very long time with small children but we did it and we survived with minimal injury. My mom was the one who made it all happen. She has been wanting to take our boys since they were little and didn't want to wait until they were too old and wouldn't be interested.

We woke up very early and drove to the parks. Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios the first day and then Universal's Islands of Adventure on the second day. It was a whirlwind. I can honestly say that seeing Cayenne meet Pluto (whom she cried for) made it all worth it. We waited in line for a picture and when we got to the front of the line she walked up to him and hugged him-- it was a long warm embrace for at least 4 minutes. She didn't want to let go. It was the sweetest thing ever.

Pictures are way better than words.

This was 4 minutes later. Pluto started making motions like he was flattered and covering his eyes.

Hollywood Studios will be way better when the Star Wars Land is up and running, but the kids really liked this place.

Not sure we will go back anytime soon. Disney and Universal, food and lodging for one night and two days cost a lot of bucks. Luckily, my mom covered most of it-- thanks, Ma!  That being said, if we stay in the South Florida area a day trip is possible. Although I would've wanted to stay at our hotel a bit longer. We were in such a rush to get everything in that we didn't get to enjoy it. The Cabana Bay Beach Resort was super nice. I wanted to hang out by the pool, walk around, have a cocktail and all that. I would definitely recommend the hotel and Islands of Adventure for kids the boys ages. Cayenne, poor thing was bored there. The Dr. Seuss area was not even catered to her age. Disney was something that we checked off the bucket list. I'm sorry, Walt, I will watch your movies (and we do our fair share) and enjoy Mickey and Minnie from afar.
