Our Disney Adventure! #travel


Traveling with a Toddler

So...we had a rough start as we missed our first flight. We didn't hear our alarms and there were so many spring breakers in front of us at the check-in counter, there was no way. We all tried our best and I ran to the gate, but it was too late. Luckily, we were able to board a flight later in the morning to Baltimore then catch a flight to Orlando. 




Hendrix was a trooper. He slept on the first flight to Baltimore then played with toys and ate snacks on the second flight. Actually, throughout the entire trip he was amazing. He napped in his stroller when he was tired and was up and going right with us. 

Traveling with a toddler does come with more gear, but boy I wouldn't change a thing. Taking him to Disney with it basically being my first time, too, was so special. 

We Made It!

We arrived in Orlando to find our luggage was not coming off the carousel. After speaking with the people, they informed us Disney had picked up our bags and taken them to our cabin for us. Awesome. As the lady said, this is what you pay for-Disney takes care of you. 

Our Favorites

Favorite Rides for Kids
Hendrix loved Small World, Magic Carpets, and Figment (Epcot). All three had colorful displays and Hendrix oooed and ahhed at all of them. 

Favorite Rides for Adults
My absolute favorite was Everest in Animal Kingdom. I also liked Tower of Terror and Flight of Peter Pan. They were different and worth waiting a bit. 

Favorite Food
We tended to eat one big meal a day as it can get quite expensive. My favorite meal for all ages would be O'Hana at the Polynesian. Many of the meals are an all you can eat style which can get to be a little much, but the O'Hana meal offered a little of everything: delicious pineapple/mango bread, grilled chicken/steak/shrimp, pot stickers, noodles, salad, and bread pudding for dessert. I liked everything they served. 

The character breakfast at Be Our Guest was wonderful. The food was good, but just breakfast food, but the service was over the top fabulous. The characters also come around to greet the kids and adults. 

Cabins at Fort Wilderness

We stayed at the cabins and they were fabulous. To get to the Magic Kingdom, you do have to take a boat across, but that alone is really enjoyable. The area also has two pools, a campfire singalong, and choices of a couple dinners/shows. 

I would recommend anyone staying with any trouble walking far distances or people who hate waiting on a bus system to rent a golf cart. We stayed with Jon's parents in the cabin and it was simply wonderful. The maid service was amazing and even set up the characters one night to find when we came home. 




Home Again

After experiencing all the parks, lots of eating, and many rides, we returned home about 1:30 a.m. I can't even express how amazing the trip was and how unbelievably magical Disney makes everything. 

Here are some of my favorite pics:





The day after, finally home.
