Tuesday afternoon, November 15 we headed out towards Disney for our annual trip. Brody was pretty excited and had assisted in packing - making sure he had the right "big boys" to wear for when he was going to see each character.
This year we were short my dad because he was hunting in Kentucky, but my mom was with us and was pretty excited - can't you tell?
This was before they went to sleep.
This year we decided to stay off property since we don't really spend a lot of time at the hotel. We were pleasantly surprised with our 2 bedroom suite hotel and once we changed clothes we headed out to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. I had 2 boys who were pretty excited and were ready to see Mickey and ride some rides.
With the Christmas party ticket we were able to get in at 4:00 and stay until midnight. Our first ride (minus mom and Trevor) was Thunder Mtn - nothing like starting big. We made our way through a lot of rides and even to a few characters which Trevor LOVED. The lines were a little long for characters so we didn't see too many.
Nini and I don't like riding this but Trevor wanted to so we let the big boys ride so they could spin all they wanted and we sat in another teacup with Trevor
We decided to see the late parade at 10:15 and found a great spot on Main St to enjoy the "snow". Hard to believe that Trevor was still up and going but this was going to be his first time seeing Mickey so I think he was pretty excited. It's the cutest thing to see a child's face seeing the wonderful sights of Disney for the first time.
Once the parade was over we gave Brody the opportunity to pick what to do next. He chose dancing with Woody, so off we went to the Diamond Horseshoe Saloon to dance with Woody and his friends.
What a beautiful sight!!
Day 1 of our Disney vacation was a success and finally got everyone bathed and asleep around 2AM - whew!! Wednesday could be a long day!!
