Yes, we need a vacation from our vacation.
Growing up, we used to go to Florida as a family for a few weeks in the Summer and would always spend a few days at Disney World. The last time I went with friends was about 20 years ago. Ed hasn’t been in at least that long. It will be the first trip for The Kids and at age five, we think it will be the perfect age for them to experience the magic of Disney.
We’ll only be visiting the parks for three days so we’ll spend two days at The Magic Kingdom and one day (or a 1/2 day) at Animal Kingdom. Unfortunately, the bigger of the two water parks is closed for renovations but to The Kids, a pool is the same as a water park. Their lifejackets are packed so they’re ready to go.
Reina’s been boarded at a fancy resort and will have daily walks, her own tv, spa treatments and the option for bedtime books. I’m not kidding in the least. She’s not going to want to come home.
We’re going off site for dinner (at least) one night and have reservations at Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament. It’s the first time that any of us have experienced eating with our hands and not getting in trouble for it so we’re looking forward to it.

We were at WDW 2 years ago to see my son’s high school marching band perform in the Electric Light Parade at the Magic Kingdom. His band is going again this spring break, in fact he leaves on Friday. We aren’t getting to go this time though 🙁
I hope you have a wonderful trip!

What night will your son be performing and what’s the name of the band!?

They are performing tomorrow (3-31). I just looked at the itinerary and realized it isn’t the night parade though, but the one at 2:30. His band is Beavercreek High School.

Darn. We’ll be at Animal Kingdom tomorrow. We actually saw the 3pm parade today and it was fabulous. All the best to your son.

I have never been to Disney. My kids see the commercials and want to go. My husband and I hope to take them at least once in their life.
Enjoy your trip to Disney and your adventure back to Canada!
Never been there…..but that could change now that I have a girl who adores all things Disney!
Have fun! I went to Disney when I was in Grade 9 – it was definitely a magical experience – and a seagull even pooped on my sister’s head – they say it brought her good luck 😉
I hope to one day take my children there. Enjoy!

I am so excited for you! Disney is like a dream come true. Can’t wait to follow along with all your posts!!!! Take lots of pictures 🙂 have a safe journey home! <3
So cool! I think 5 years old is a great age to take them! My whole family went to Disney for the first time last year, together with my uncle’s family. There were a total of 8 of us “kids”, between the ages of 22-7, and my mom said she thought that was a perfect age group to go with–everyone was tall enough for everything and highly energetic (I’m told that mom and dad did take us to Disneyworld once before, at 4,2,1 and mom was pregnant with the 4th baby, and it was only for one day, while I have no memory of it, I’m guessing it wasn’t nearly as pleasant. 🙂 ).

You guys will have so much fun! I love Disney. I went to DisneyWorld when I was a kid. And the Medieval Times is really fun too. =0)
Travel safely, and have a good weekend.
I would LOVE to go!
One of these years. 😉
I cannot wait to follow along with the Zoo’s shenanigans, here, there, and everywhere. 😀
Have SO much fun!

Oooooh, I love road trips! I haven’t been to Disney World in a long, long time but I remember having a blast!
Welcome home so glad you made it back safe and sound 🙂
One day my family will visit Disney World!
My 5 year old son is just NOW starting to ask to go to Disney!
Yes, I’ve been to Disney World – about 20 yrs ago, the kids loved it but the line-ups were very, very long. A huge disadvantage was having a stroller with us for the little one & naturally she doesn’t remember a thing.
I have never been and would love to go. Thanks for posting.
