There's just something that awakens the kid in you when you drive up and see the sign welcoming you to Walt Disney World.... a magical place indeed..... or perhaps it's the sheer joy on your children's faces that make everything right in the world again...
I realized I've once again been behind in posting, so I will return to my vacation posts along with some of my other posts of recent things that have been going on. Including what has been keeping me so busy. :-)
We stayed at the Art of Animation Resort when we visited. We chose the Lion King family suites as it is one of Hayley's favorite Disney movies. This was for her 16th birthday celebration with her best friend Breanne and her little sister Kathleen too. :-)
Breanne made our shirts we are wearing here for the trip :-)
They had some really awesome artwork and sketches hanging up all around to enjoy.
This was another set of shirts Breanne made for the 3 of them to wear on the trip :-) So adorable!!
We took turns visiting different parks and having the park hopper pass made it easy to go back and forth between them during the day. This was in Animal Kingdom.
Although I have still not seen the movie, we did visit the Avatar area and rode one of the virtual rides. It was really neat!! Incredible graphics and it felt like you were really there.
Birthday celebrating all around. Even though we went for Hayley's 16th, we celebrated Kathleen's too since we couldn't go at that time of the year.
The castle dinner was one of our favorites. We made it late at night and got all dressed up. We all enjoyed the meal and the atmosphere.
You're never too old to get an autograph from your favorite princess :-)
They didn't want Jerry to feel left out so he got his special sword and was quite happy, lol.
The girls each got their magic wands... including me :-)
Food was very delicious!!!
Birthdays celebrated again and all week long!
Delicious desserts too, so very yummy!
Of course they had to meet Cinderella and complete the magic of the evening. ;-)
Our niece Neve and my sister and her husband were visiting at the same time so we met up with them as much as our schedules would allow. :-) Wish we had more time together, but it sure flies by fast!!
Until next time! :-)
