The Magic Kingdom

Our trip to Disneyworld was amazing. I can't thank my parents enough for making this memory for Lily. We stayed at the Port Orleans resort, and my parents even decorated our room with a tree and other Christmas decorations.

Monday was spent at the Magic Kingdom, where Lily loved the teacups and the castle fireworks, but no so much the Haunted House.

Tuesday we celebrated Christmas in the morning, then went from resort to resort looking at decorations. She and Michael also went in the hotel pool and down the dragon water slide. Tuesday night we had a Cinderella dinner at the Grand Floridian - watching Lily's excitement at the characters was wonderful. My mom arranged a total of 4 character meals, so Lily filled up her autograph book (which will be this Friday's show and tell item).

Wenesday we went to the Animal Kingdom, which was very cool. Went on a real animal safari, and Dad, Lee and Michael went on the Mount Everest rollercoaster. They were a little wobbly as they got off! We loved the nemo show, but the highlight of the day was the Lion King show, where Lily got to open the show and to make giraffe noises for the crowd! I fear the show biz bug might have bit her. At night we went to downtown Disney, then collapsed.

Thursday morning Michael had to go home, but the rest of us went to Disney where Lily got to do the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. Unbelievable. Photos follow. We also rode It's A Small World for the second time. Friday we hung out at the Polynesian, then Lily and I flew home and Mom, Dad, and Lee headed to Punta Gorda.

I'm sure I'm forgetting so much, but I wanted to get these pictures up. You can see many more by clicking here. I'll add my mom's photos to that set as she sends them.

Thank you again Mom and Dad!
