We're back!!!!! Day 1 of Disney ;)

Well we are back in the real world....sort of! LOL! We had a great trip and loved being together. Many fun memories were made. Wyatt loved every second of Disney and was amazing through the entire thing! ;) I think I am going to do our trip a day at a time as I post...I just have way to many pictures to share. Funny huh? So....plans changed a little last Saturday when a terrible storm came through St.Louis (nothing compared to some of the other storms in AL, we are nothing but thankful they weren't too bad here). The storm did some damage to the airport that we were supposed to fly out of. After a little scare of thinking we might have to drive all the way there my in laws saved the day! They got us a flight out of an airport about 4 hrs. away. Though we weren't to anxious about driving 4 hrs. instead of 20 mins. to the airport we were just thankful to be able to go. Good thing I had been packed and ready to walk out the door for a few days because instead of leaving Easter Sunday morning around 11 we packed up and started our 4 hour drive Saturday afternoon. We stayed at a hotel near the airport Saturday night and took a shuttle to the airport Easter Sunday morning at 8am!!!!!

 Since we stayed on-site we were able to take the "Magical Express" from the airport to our resort....

Once we got in and settled we took a ferry from our resort to Downtown Disney. Wyatt loved the boat!
 We ate at T-Rex restaurant Sunday night. I was nervous about Wyatt being scared. He LOVED it! We sat in the ice cave. ;)

We made a dinosaur at the Build-A-Bear after dinner. It was so cute! 

We walked around Downtown Disney for the rest of the evening. We turned in about 8pm, put Wyatt to bed and sat on our balcony together and enjoyed the beginning of our vacation. ;)


  1. Disney is the best! Glad you had fun!

  2. So glad y'all had a great time! I can't wait to read about the rest and see all the pictures!

  3. I haven't been to Disney since I was a little kid, but I loved it! Looks like a great first day for you guys :)

  4. So great to hear you had so much fun! Love all the pictures makes me want to go as well. :)

  5. Oh! I'm so excited for you! Your first day sounds wonderful! Did you stay at Port Orleans? (just thought since you took the boat over to DTD) We were just in WDW in Feb (our 4th trip) we just LOVE Disney! We have stayed on-site on our last 3 trips (CBR, CSR, and Beach Club in Feb.) I can't wait to read more about your trip and see more of your pictures. I posted a mini trip recap on my blog. Maybe you can check it out when you get a chance.


  6. Looks like the start of a wonderful trip!! Cant wait to see the rest!

    Quick question if you dont mind - do you like your chicco lightweight stroller? And does Wyatt? We are going to California in June & I am looking into strollers and cant decide!

    Hope your adjusting back to 'reality'!


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
