Day 3: Hollywood Studios & Magic Kingdom
Cute note from mom: Immediately after breakfast, Clay & I told Parker to go take his poop..which he will usually do on command in the mornings. Parker ran off to Nana & Poppie's room (the only room where there were no other occupants) shut himself in the closet, and came out about 2-3 minutes later. When we asked him if he had taken his poop, he proudly declared, "Yeah!" as he continued to run towards his desired destination. We were rolling because he just made the moment so comical!
Parker took a mid-morning nap and then we all had lunch at the resort. Afterwards, we rode the bus over to Hollywood Studios where our daytime adventures began!
Fun attractions we saw: "The Great Movie Ride" where we traveled through classic film scenes & Hollywood moments, "Toy Story Midway Mania" (a fun 4D game-playing ride! We loved this one!), "Rock n' Roller Coaster" starring Aerosmith (all the kids went on this one --Nana & Poppie watched Parker for us), & we even caught part of the big Block Party Bash!
We stayed for supper at the 50's Prime Time Cafe...
"Who's ready to go to Disney?!"
Riding the toy story ride with my Aunt Ashleigh...don't worry Ashee, I can hit these things no problem!"
After a filling dinner at the Primetime Cafe with our server, Dale, who reprimanded us for not finishing our green beans :), we headed over to the Magic Kingdom via Monorail to see the Wishes Nighttime Spectacular Show on Main Street. It was perfect! We walked up right as it was starting! Magical, perfect & exciting are 3 words I would use to describe the show!
Parker enjoyed resting on his Daddy's shoulders as we watched the bright lights in the sky!
After the show, we etched through the crowds (literally!) to get across to some of the Extra Magic Hour Rides. It was a rough 20 minutes getting across the street, but once we did, the park was ours to enjoy!!
...need I say more about the lack of lines...it was wonderful! We even stayed on a couple of the rides to ride a second time because there were so few people waiting!
"I was sad when Aunt Ashee & Aunt Lacey had to go home today, but luckily Aunt KK, Nana & Poppie kept us busy after we said our goodbye's. ...lunch at Planet Hollywood (well, I kinda slept through it but I'm sure everyone had a good time!)...down time at the condo...then dinner at T-Rex at Downtown Disney. It was cold outside today, otherwise we were going to go to the pool...about 57 degrees with chilly winds."
"I loved having dinner with Nana & Poppie & the others at T-Rex. We got to sit in the lava room which was fun..the walls were an icy cold blue & changed colors during the meteor shower every 20 minutes. Mama & Daddy walked me around the restaurant while we were waiting on our food to show me all the fish & dinosaurs! It was a fun evening!"
I loved looking ahead & seeing Parker on his daddy's shoulders..so cute especially with the Tigger on his back!
We enjoyed our time at Epcot today; here are some of the things we did: Ellen's Energy Adventure, Mission Space, Lunch, Test Track, The Seas with Nemo & Friends, Soarin (twice! this was Carrie's favorite!), & Living with the Land.
Day 6: Golf for Poppie & Clay & Magic Kingdom
"One of the most fun times that I had at the park was getting to play in Pooh's play area! I went down a slide, visited Pooh's treehouse & crawled through tunnels. Mama said she was very proud of me because I waited patiently in line until it was my turn all by myself with no help!After playing here a bit, we visited Mickey's house in Toontown & had pics with Mickey & Minnie. I kept my hand in my mouth for most of these sets of pics; Mickey thought it was so cool that he put his hand in his mouth too so that we would look alike!"
