Friday Five – We’re Off On Our Disney Adventure!

One year ago on August 21st, Preston and I found out little man’s gender.  We traveled to Disney World and St. Pete’s Beach for our babymoon, and on our first full day of vacation did a gender reveal with Mickey Mouse at Epcot.  Today, just one week shy of the anniversary of our gender reveal, we’ll be traveling back to Disney World for little man’s first trip there.

There’s so many things I’m looking forward to about this trip, including:

1.  Taking little man on some of the classic Disney rides, including Dumbo, Its a Small World, and Winnie the Pooh.  I can’t wait to experience the magic of Disney through his eyes!

2.  Introducing little man to Mickey Mouse.  He loves his stuffed Mickey Mouse so I can’t wait to see how he reacts to seeing the real thing.

3.  Getting to ride the thrill rides that I couldn’t go on during our last trip, especially Space Mountain and Tower of Terror.

4.  Getting to share this experience with Preston’s side of the family.  There are 11 of us traveling to Disney for this vacation, and its sure to be a memorable trip.

5.  Its a family tradition to go to the hat store on Main Street at Magic Kingdom.  I can’t wait to get little man his first Mickey hat!

    Have a great time! I think my favorites at WDW are the thrill rides, but MK has plenty for the kid (or kid at heart). Peter Pan is a classic, and I love the expansion they had. The Mine Ride wasn’t done the last time I was there 😦

  5. I am smiling from ear to ear reading this! Having a magically fantastic time my friend!

    That’s so awesome. Have a great time. We just got back from Disney. When we took my son when he was really little, he was the same way with his stuffed Mickey and he ended up being GREAT with the characters. To him they were just big versions of his toy. Have a great time!
