Disney Flashback {Part II}

Saturday, October 16, 2010
We are getting packed.  We leave on Thursday!!!!  I thought I would do one more flashback from our trip 5 years ago.  Kate sees the video and asks where she was then.  She was not even born which seems so weird to me.  But I know she will love every minute of this trip along with the rest of us.

We stayed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge that time and the boys loved earning bead each day to make a totem....


In fact, Will would ask to leave the parks so that we could go back to the hotel for the activities each day.

As an aside, Dave is NOT a shopper or a clothes guy.  We just pulled out his clothes for the trip and the shirts are almost the exact same ones he wore 5 years ago.

Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum were so funny!
They turned the boys hats inside out.

Look how empty the park was!!!  It was the last week of September and there were NO lines at all.
 We are hoping for that this time too.

Chip and Dale became our favorite characters after this.
In fact, we are having dinner with them this trip!


Dave and Harry love Dumbo.  Dave will take Kate on her first Dumbo ride.
Will and I love Space Mountain and the big roller coasters.



One night we were able to ride up front with the monorail driver.



Harry had recently learned to swim and even though this is blurry I love the joy on his face.



I have a feeling there will be a lot more princesses in our photos this time!

A few people mentioned they will be there at the same time as us. PLEASE say hello to us if you see us out and about.  I would love to say hi!  And Mary...We will stop by guest relations to see you!


  1. HOW FUN..
    love the flashback.
    Can't wait to see all the photos from this trip..
    Have a great time.
    Safe travels.
    Love ya..

  2. What a fun flashback post! The boys look sooooo little in these pictures!

    Can't wait to see Kate with the princesses. You will have a great time!

  3. So cute to flashback and see the boys so young. My how they've grown. And, how fun that Kate gets to be a part of this Disney trip. Stu is the same way on clothes; if I didn't shop for him, he'd have nothing to wear.

  4. I love that you guys meet Twiddle Dee and Twiddle Dum!! We've never seen them!! I think you will definitely have more princesses this time around!! Have a magical trip! Can't wait to "hear" all about it!!

  5. Have a fabulous trip, Kim! The weather has been glorious here - hope it continues for you all. We live just about 30 minutes from Disney,but haven't been in years. My boys loved going when they were young :)

  6. Kim~ Have a wonderful time! I love taking our boys to Disney. Such a magical place.

  7. I love Disney, so I'm really enjoying these flashbacks and I look forward to pictures from your new trip once you get back! Have an amazing time!

    That's really cool that you guys got to ride in the front of the monorail. They don't do that anymore due to an accident that happened the day before we went to Disney for our honeymoon. My husband rode in the front once and really liked it, so it's sad that they can't do it now, but I understand why.

  8. Kim me and my oldest will be there the same time you will be but I won't be nearly as easy to spot, my 5 Princesses will be at home. This is a trip for me and my daughter who turns 21 while there. If I see you I will be sure to say hello! were there till the 29th.

  9. Love the flashback! You are right, there will be many more princess shots this time. Disney is fun for the whole family...have a fantastic trip!

  10. I can't wait to the Grand-kids and Bree are old enough to enjoy Disney! Until then I will live precariously through your pictures! Have fun!!!

  11. Your Disney pictures are wonderful!! It really is the happiest place on earth isn't it? Can't wait to hear all about your latest visit!!

  12. What a great flashback! I can't get over how much the boys have grown! I know you'll have a fun trip, can't wait to see photo's of Kates first Disney experience.

    Gin =)

  13. Such fun!!!! Can't wait to see pictures from this trip.


    We can't wait for our trip there in December!!!!

  14. What a fun time you had back then and I'm sure you will again. It will be an amazing trip! My fave rides are Dumbo and the Teacups -- am I a dork or what? Have fun!


  15. Have a wonderful, and safe, trip!

  16. You will have so much FUN! Emma did great on our recent trip. We didn't have enough time to do much since the kids are such different ages so we are already planning a return trip!

    Can't wait to see your photos!

  17. Kim,

    We leave for Disney tomorrow and will be there through Saturday. I didn't realize you would be there then too.

    Call me!


  18. Awesome! I'll be there Friday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday- mostly in the afternoon/evening.

  19. Have a FABULOUS time! We went in May and Oakley STILL talks about it daily. She truly believes that all those princesses live there in the castle. She was in HEAVEN the entire week. Blessings to you!

  20. I love the cutting board!!!

    Have a great time on your vacation!

  21. I hope you and your family have a magical time. Don't forget to have the boys or Kate get a trim at the barbershop on Main Street. We are going to Disney in Feb. M is in a performing arts group and will be performing there. We are thrilled. Can't wait to hear all about your favorites from the trip. Be safe!


Thank you for your kindness.
