January: Disney World

Our trip to Disney World was great. We left on a Wednesday morning and got to the park in time for lunch with Winnie the Pooh and his friends. This was our first foray into character meetings since the last Easter Egg Roll and let's say that I was a bit nervous to see how they went, since Maya's been known to cower when someone dressed up comes over. To say she loved it was an understatement and Zoe loved it too!



Onto our first ride..Dumbo the Elephant:

And a random character meeting:


After an afternoon of rides and exploring, off to meet Cinderella and her stepsisters, stepmother and Prince Charming:

The next morning we got up, braved the cold and headed to Chef Mickey's for breakfast:

Then headed to Animal Kingdom:

The next morning (friday), we headed to the character breakfast in our hotel (Cape May Cafe):


Then headed to the Bippity Boppity Boutique for Maya to get styled for her princess lunch:

Then we headed to Epcot to for the lunch at Askershus:

We decided to hang around Epcot in the World Showcase for a bit..had some gelato, met another character and had dinner.

Day 4, we hit Magic Kingdom in the AM for a few rides...

Then it got so crowded, we decided to bail and head back to Epcot to meet some more characters and get Maya's book filled:

And finally...Day 5 (Sunday) saw us back at Magic Kingdom for a few hours to go to Cinderella's castle for breakfast and get some last rides in before heading to the airport:

Phew! That was long-now you know why it took me so long to post it!
