Where dreams come true.

Our three days at Disney were absolutely magical. As soon as we stepped into Magic Kingdom on our first day there, we were greeted by a singing quartet and bundles of brightly colored balloons on Main Street. The place just screams happiness. Reese and Sage eagerly cheered as they saw Cinderella's castle, and let's be serious, I did too. We continued smiling all day long as we rode our favorite rides, ate way too many french fries and chicken fingers, devoured soft serve ice cream, and watched the fireworks show light up the sky over the castle.
Our second day at Animal Kingdom was just as fun. I had never been to this park before, and loved how relaxed it felt compared to Magic Kingdom. Canopies of trees provided shade from the intense Florida heat and the shorter park hours made our day a lot easier. We closed out Magic Kingdom the night before and didn't get back to our hotel until after 1 am, so the 6 pm closing time for Animal Kingdom was very appealing!

The Tree of Life welcomed us as we started our adventures in the park.
We met Flick and watched him teach us all about bugs in It's Tough to be a Bug! in 3-D.
We laughed and danced with Pluto and Goofy in Dinoland, USA. We ran from ride to ride and were able to go on everything we wanted to: Expedition Everest, TriceraTop Spin, and the super-scary Dinosaur. We also saw Finding Nemo: The Musical and The Lion King. It was a blast!
We enjoyed ice cream treats as we watched Mickey's Jammin' Jungle Parade. Chocolate covered frozen bananas = yum.
My favorite part of the day was our safari ride. Animals roamed the wildlife preserve and walked right next to our safari truck. I loved seeing the hippos pop out of the water and the giraffes walk from tree to tree as we drove by.
We spent our last day shopping at the Orlando Premium outlets and the Downtown Disney Marketplace. We stocked up on toys and souvenirs at Once Upon a Toy and dined at Rainforest Cafe. For dessert, we ate treats from Goofy's Candy Co. It was the perfect ending to our Disney adventures.
