Fun In Disney World!!

Hey guys! I hope you are all doing well! We had a GREAT time in Disney World! We got back on Monday and I have been getting things back in order over the last couple of days. I told you I would overload you with pictures and that's the truth! I think I posted 58 pictures and I had to cut them down! lol...
I tried to organize the pictures from day one...we started in Magic Kingdom. We got there early so we wouldn't miss some of the rides. Chase's favorite ride was Space Mountain, I was glad when that one came to an end!! We rode alot of the rides in Magic Kingdom, but missed a few because the lines were so long and we didn't want to wait. You could get a fast pass on some of the bigger rides and that would move you up to the front of the line. Those really helped, but some of them ran out. Over all, Magic Kingdom was alot of fun!
Mom and Dad
Chase was so excited!

Dancing in front of the castle.
I loved this ride! It's a small world....


The Haunted Mansion...

Fun ride! Most of my pictures didn't turn out except for this ghost!

The Jungle Ride....

The American Presidents...they looked so real!

When we came out of the American Presidents, we were just in time for a parade!
Day 2: Epcot
This picture was actually taken on one of the nights we went back to eat at Epcot...in case you are wondering why we have on different clothes in some of the pics.
Chase LOVED Epcot
The Nemo ride was really cute! There were all kinds of aquariums and things to look at after the ride.
This was one of his favorite parts of Epcot.
He couldn't wait to do this ride...you design your own roller coaster and then ride it. He and Kevin did this one together.
This was in The Coral Reef restaurant in Epcot...it was sooo good!! The atmosphere was really neat with all of the fish tanks. Teresa said this was a must do and she was right!

Yum! the desserts were wonderful!!

Chase and I in front of the countries
We also ate at Biergarten in Epcot...it was a German Buffet.
The food was good, but the atmosphere was great!!
Teresa told me I must get a pastry from the French pastry place. (can't remember the name).


Yum...I ate way to much on this trip!!

Day 3: Downtown Disney
Chase couldn't wait to get to the Lego shop!

We let him stay in here for almost two hours! We ended up buying him a few early birthday presents.

We went back to Downtown Disney again later in the week at night.
It was neat at night, but it was so crowed you could hardly move!
Day 4: Animal Kingdom
What a neat place!
We really enjoyed the safari! We saw lots of animals...


We went to a show called Flights of Wonder...it was really
cute. Those birds are amazing!
The heat was getting to us so we decided to cool off on the raft ride...

Ahhhh...we got soaked! We all felt refreshed after that.

Kevin was soaked too! They went on the Mount Everest ride later on, but I chickened out. My stomach wasn't feeling so good anyway... it was probably all that food I was eating! lol...My favorite thing in this park was the 3d show "It's Tough To Be A Bug". It was great!
Day 5: Hollywood Studios
I think this was my favorite place!
We loved the 3D Muppet show!
Chase was ready to get on that Star Wars ride!

The stunt shows were amazing!
This was Chase's favorite thing...The Indiana Jones stunt show.
That night we ate at the 50's Prime Time Cafe. It was so much fun and the food was really yummy!
This was our waitress...she kept everyone in line. At this resturant you had to use good manners...no elbows on the table, no hats, and no hiding veggies! lol...
My dad kept sneaking his hat on so she called him "Trouble"! Hehehe. Chase was scared to death he would get in trouble for not eating all of his veggies. lol...I definitly reccomend this place!!
Yum!
The American Idol Experence was awesome! The girl that won could really sing! We might be seeing her on the real American Idol. Whoever wins gets a ticket to move to the front of the line at the American Idol tryouts.
My dad bought Chase the stormtrooper shirt. He wore it on one of the nights we went back to Hollywood Studios.
This was the show Fantasmic at Hollywood Studios. It was awesome! The water/mist acted like a T.V. screen for the cartoon images. I don't know how they do all of this stuff! Amazing!!

Day 6: Typhoon Lagoon
Chase's favorite day...
Chase loved this place! We could not get him out of the wave pool. It was alot of fun, we rode all of the tube rides, but skipped the really fast ones.

I've mentioned before that my mom is really into butterflies. Well, she and my dad snuck away and got her this rub-on tatoo! LOL!
As you can see we had a great time! We stayed at the Caribbean Beach Resort on the Disney Property. They have buses that run about every 20 minutes to take you to the parks.
There are lots of eating places, a gift shop, and game room at the resort.

The pools are really neat too...we didn't spend alot of time at the resort, but we got a little bit of swimming in.
Almost everyday when we were walking to the bus stop there would be an airplane writing in the sky. It was a great way to start off our days! This one says U + God = :).
What a great trip! I don't think we could have walked another day though...lol. We were so tired when we got home. I hope you enjoyed the all the pictures!
I will be doing a summer giveaway next...so be sure to check it out!

I never tire of seeing people's pics of Disney, thanks for sharing so many with us. We went a couple of years ago and met my sister and her family there (they flew over from England) and we had a blast. We didn't do Epcot and the waterparks, although my sis did because they were there two weeks and we only stayed one.
Don't you feel like you need to come home for a rest from a trip like that ;) it wore us out!

Sandra said...

What a great vacation! One of my twins, Austin and I just looked at all of your Disney photos. We really enjoyed them all. I think we need to start saving our pennies so we can take our little ones to Disney Land at least! ha ha. Thank you for sharing your wonderful vacation with us.
God Bless.

My most favorite place on earth!!! You have made me want to go again!! Right Now!!! My husband took me and my boys a couple of years ago and it was their first time to go and they were 14 and 17! It was our most memorable vacation ever, for alot of reasons....

We are in the planning stages to go back. My boys are now 17 and 20! And they still want to go to Disney World!! No place like it!

So glad you had such a great time!

Melissa Miller said...

I just LOVE Disney!!! You guys look great and like you had so much fun. I am amazed at seeing the new the AI experience. That is something else! All of the photos were wonderful and bring back so many memories for me. We need
to go back again soon. I can't believe how much our Dads look alike. My Dad is tall and thin just like yours. He really reminds me of him so much. Both of my sisters look much more like my Dad.

Thanks so much for you kind words on my new haircut and weight loss. It was about time I posted photos of my new improved self. So many blog friends had been asking me for them. I'm glad I finally did it!

Have a Happy 4th of July!
~Melissa :)

Welcome home Kristen! The pictures are fabulous. So glad you all had a great time. We enjoyed our stay in Orlando during the volleyball tournament, and the beach in Daytona was AWESOME! We were so glad for the break. Now to catch up on all those unfinished projects!

Bringing Pretty Back said...

Would you believe I have never been there! I loved to see all of the photo's! What a great time you had and what great memories you made! The sky writing pic was great!

Teri said...

Welcome back, Kristen! Looks like your family had a blast!! I've never been to Disney World. Disneyland is only a 90 minute car ride away from my house. But, from what everyone tells me Disney World is 100 times better! Thanks for sharing your photos. It was fun seeing all of the different parts of the park. It makes me want to renew my annual passport and head over to Disneyland. =)

Angie said...

Looks like an awesome trip! I hope to go when my son is older and can really enjoy everything and do all the walking you have to do!

Darlene - Our Creative Life said...

I just relived our memories from our trip to DW in May by looking at your pics. You really got alot of great pics. Did you ride Fast Track & Rockin Roller Coaster? Those were our Favorites!!

Kim said...

Omigosh! This post brought back so many great memories. Our family stayed at the Caribbean Beach one year and we just loved it. I'm so jealous! We haven't been in about 5 years. Maybe after the new baby (I know, can you believe it???). Thanks for sharing such great pix!!
xoxo,
Kim

Kristen,

Being from Florida, we have been many times to WDW. We took Caden when he was 5 yrs. old and he loved it. Didn't do any other park but that one. He was too small. We went at Christmas and it was beautiful. I would have loved to have gone to Epcot before we moved north but we didn't make it. Your trip sounded great and I am glad that Chase liked it so much. Now you need a resting vacation, don't you?

A Hint of Home said...

Hi Kristen,
I enjoyed looking at everyone. You got some great shots. It's a fun place to visit and I know you all had a great time!
Thanks for sharing all your experiences with us.

Gypsy Heart said...

Great photos! I love WDW...Epcot especially. There's so much creativity and unique things to see and do...a wonderful way to spend vacation time. So glad all of you enjoyed yourselves and yes, a week of "rest" is prolly in order. Thanks for sharing!

Kristen, what wonderful memories you've created with this trip! Your photos are great! This just looks like so much fun and you and your family are so cute. Love that your mother got the rub on tatoo! laurie

What fun you must have had! Your pictures are so vivid. Makes me feel like I went along. It's nice your parents were able to go with you.

Sounds like a very fun time, Kristen.

Looks like yall had a wonderful time. I will miss being in Fla. and being so close to all that but we still have our annual passes. The french pasteries are so yummy. If you ever go back Port Oreleans/Riverside is a wonderful place to stay and if you want to spend alittle more The Wilderness Lodge is a must.

Connie said...

What wonderful pictures you took on your vacation. I bet it took forever to post them!
I want to go to your Etsy shop and see what you have done. Your work is lovely.

Stay cool down there...........
