Last month we got the chance to head back to Disney World. Now weren’t we there not too long ago? Maybe ;) I warned Aaron that this might happen. When we were first married I told Aaron that we would need to budget for yearly trips to Disney. He thought that I was kidding. This is our third year of marriage and our third trip to Disney. I think he is finally starting realize that I was serious. And I think he is finally on board! As we were leaving the park the last day there was one last ride that Aaron, yes Aaron, wanted to go on but there just wasn’t time. I said, “Next time we come you will be able to go on the ride with Ethan.” And his response, “It better not be that long till we come back.” That made my heart so happy to hear.
I have a ridiculous amount of photos from this trip as well as some awesome video. So you can plan on hearing about this trip for a while- in between other posts. I’ve got a lot of catching up to do.
Today I’ll start with some of the characters that we were able to meet. I thought we would introduce Ethan to Mickey, but I didn’t think we would bother standing in line to meet anyone else. We got lucky and we happened upon quite a few characters that had very little or no wait lines. It was great, because except for Pluto Ethan loved meeting every single on of them!
His favorite was Donald. After meeting Donald we had to sit for 20 minutes while Ethan stared at the duck. Then when we tried to leave Ethan started crying, crawling out of his stroller, and grabbing for Donald. It was hilarious!
The weather in Orlando wasn’t too hot or too humid in fact it was perfect everyday, expect one. This day it rained and at night it was freezing and windy. In an attempt to get out of the cold we ran into a Little Mermaid show. When the show was over we were let out into this back alley. Maybe we just went the wrong way, but I’m glad that we did because the next place we ran to get out of the cold wasn’t a place that we would have normally gone to or even noticed. We found ourselves in an animation room watching a show on how they draw the Disney characters. Well after that show, they let us out into this back room for a surprise after hours dance party.
This was the highlight of the trip and possibly the highlight of Ethan’s life this far because not only did Ethan get to meet Mickey Mouse, but he got to dance with him as well. I can’t wait until I have figured out how to get the video off of my camera so I can show you this awesome night!
Pure joy! I don’t think I have ever seen Ethan as excited as he was when he saw Mickey.
He also didn’t mind meeting Minnie and a plethora of Disney channel characters that I cannot name since we don’t yet have the Disney channel in our home.
We had so much fun. It was so fun to have Ethan with us this time. There is so much more to tell you about! I can’t wait to share it all with you.
