Flashback Friday~Disney

Friday, October 8, 2010
We are leaving in 2 weeks for Disney World and we are getting really excited! So, the last time we were there was exactly 5 years ago (Will was 8 and Harry was 4 and 3/4) .  We had the BEST time.  Dave and I kind of had low expectations. We knew the kids would have fun but we had no idea how much fun we would have right along with them.  To me, there is nothing like seeing your child's eyes light up at Disney World.  It is like a week's worth of Christmas mornings!


A friend made us a GREAT video but I cannot upload it here so I thought I would share a few photos from our last trip....

We took the overnight train to Disney from Richmond VA.  It was really neat.  We boarded about dinner time on a Saturday evening.  We checked into our state rooms (TINY)  and went to have dinner in the dining car.  Then, the boys got in ther PJ's watched a little movie and slept in their beds.  The next morning we had breakfast and pulled into the station. In all honesty, the train ride was HUGE fun for the boys.  They liked it almost as much as Disney.  For Dave and I, it was tolerable.

At the Hoop-di-do Revue.  It was so cold in there, the waiter brought out warm clean napkins for my boys to "wear."

Last time, the boys were all about getting autographs but this time, I think they will want to trade pins.

Will LOVES Goofy.  LOVES him!
And Goofy could tell because he gave Will some extra attention.

As you can see I was not into photography and we had an Olympus point and shoot.  I hope to get better photos on this trip:)  Since we did not have the blog back then, I will probably post one or two more Flashback Disney posts just so we have the photos and memories here.  Hope I don't bore anyone.

  1. I didn't read the post apparently, because as I was scanning through the pics and reading the captions I kept thinking, "Gosh, that little boy looks just like Harry" (assuming he was a cousin or other relative) and "Gosh, Harry is beginning to look just like Will." Ahhh, it's gonna be one of those days I think! Great pics!

  7. have a blast!!! you do know @ breakfast in the castle right? All of the princess stop by the table. I've gotten last minute reservations before. Just call Disney dining. It is awesome and worth every penny!!! I don't think its too badly priced either.
    If the wait is close to an hour for meeting the fairies...take it!! It's hard to find a shorter time.

    Have fun!!! We live @ 2.5 hours away and LOVE disney :)
