I enjoyed your update. It is great to hear how you all were so excited about things on your first trip. I am sorry to hear that a sickness is coming.

I appreciate you saying this. This is just how we feel when we are in Disney World - so blessed, grateful, and excited that we can't possibly be grouchy or stress over little inconveniences.

I am enjoying reading about your good times and seeing your many pictures.

Great Epcot day! I keep going back and forth about the KimPossible thingy - it sure looks like your crew had a great time doing it! I'm sorry Emily and Manny weren't feeling well that evening, but I'm glad Emily felt better the next day!

I LOVE Test Track, I it and I it LOL Great picture of you enjoying it! I can't wait to see Turtle Talk w/Crush - it sounds like soooo much fun!

As usual, you all look like you're having a blast The picture of Anthony in the car should be setting off alarm bells for you - get a BIG stick to keep all those girls away

Lizzie's facepainting looks beautiful - so flowy and soft kwim? I wish my boys liked facepainting, but it's been deemed "ick" here, sadly. Hey, *I* could get my face painted and tell them that it's only allowed for moms!

Great update. We also loved the Seas. Feel like we did not get to see as much of the World Showcase as we would have liked-next time! I did the single rider for Test Track and walked on. The girls loved playing in the cars! Nice pics as always.

Ok, so here goes with our 2nd day at the Magic Kingdom, I couldn't wait to get back here all week.

So we left off on Saturday night when Manny was not feeling well. Well, this morning when he woke up he was VERY sick, and Emily had a bad headache the night before. I woke her up and asked her if she wanted to sleep and relax, and just come to the MK after our pool break, and she said yes. I thought she was getting sick too, but luckily when she woke up a few hours later, she was fine.

So Me, Anthony, Lizzie and Sam were off to the Magic Kingdom after we grabbed breakfast and brought it up to Manny and Emily and had our breakfast in the foodcourt. We probably got on the bus at 9am.

It was so nice to be in the park this early, there were no crowds!!!







So this morning our plan was to head straight to Dumbo and then Ariel's Grotto. Lizzie was in heaven when we saw Dumbo









Anthony and Sam took the Dumbo in front of us



This one was taken from Dumbo



Lizzie was very pleased we finally got to ride Dumbo!!! And as you can see she still had some of her face paint on from the day before. We were in the pool and everything the night before but the top part stayed strong. She was happy about that.

So next we hopped right over to Ariel's Grotto, we had about a 30 minute wait, but the girls had fun while waiting.







Ok, I love these next two pictures. They just spotted Ariel, so they were peaking at her. We were about 4 people away from seeing her.



And here Lizzie is telling me she sees her







Oh, Sam was so excited to finally meet Ariel. After that I figured we'd head over to Adventureland cause Anthony was a good sport and rode Dumbo and sat through a 30 minute Ariel wait.
On the way by the castle though the Fairy Godmother was out, she was too cute. The girls were very excited, and Emily was jealous when she found out. That was the first thing Sam told her when we got back to the room.






I'll continue in the next post!!!

Oh I hope Manny and Emily get to feeling better. There's nothing worse that being sick while on vacation.

I, too, love the picture of the girls waiting to see Ariel. It makes me wish my daughter was still little.

Anthony is such a trooper. Never fussing even if he does have to do "little kid stuff".

Ok, so we got to adventureland and I was so excited to see it!! It's awesome over here.



The girls stopped to get wet by these squirting Tiki things




We decided to head into Pirates of the Carribean (5 min wait) I of course took about 8 or 9 pics and thought they came out good, but ended up being either blurry or too dark. But I got a few.







After the ride we were dumped into a giftshop and Lizzie really wanted this 5 times too big for her head Jack Sparrow Hat, she's crazy!!!



So then we were hungry and saw El Pirata y El Perico right across from Pirates. We were very excited, we love Tacos, especially Anthony. He was thrilled. It was so delicious. I told Manny that we have to eat there next year, he really missed out.





This was our view of outside from our table, and even though there were no closed walls here (there was a back side with closed wall and AC) it was nice and cool in here.



Right when we were finishing up, Lizzie spotted Capt. Hook and Mr Smee right outside the restaurant. For some reason she was so excited, it was so cute. So we went out to see them.





Right when we were finishing up with these cool guys, this cool guy came walking out.



We ran right over and watched his pirate tutorial. Very cute.



A shot of the restaurant from the outside



So we decided to head back into Fantasyland , Lizzie had also been wanting to ride the teacups. MISTAKE!!!!







Why a mistake you ask? The kids look so happy? Yeah, um the ride hadn't started yet. I guess you shouldn't ride spinning tea cups right after you eat. Me and Anthony had to hold the wheel still so we didn't spin that much, Lizzie was green, we though she was going to throw up all over us. We did make it off the ride without incident.



I think it was about 1pm at this time and because we were half sick now, and it was very HOT, we figured it was a good time to go back and get Emily, I called and she was better and waiting for us, so I felt bad. But we really needed to get in the pool anyway.

I loved this view when walking back to the bus stop



We were sitting down waiting for the bus when we got a few visitors. They were walking right up to us. Anthony was freaked out by this and is starting to run away, and Lizzie is like " Ok, come on little duckies, I want to pet you"







Here is Lizzie, we're waiting to board the bus, they were getting someone in a wheelchair loaded up first.



Ahhhh, nice cold AC






So we got back to the hotel and went swimming!!!!! Oh how we loved that pool. We go back to the MK this night!!!!!!

It's such a bummer that Manny got sick on your vacation. I'm glad Emily's headache came and went.

I'm so happy you and your family had such a wonderful first of MANY Disney vacations!

Awesome updates! Epcot is our favorite park...I'm so glad you all enjoyed it as well! I see Emily got a marionette....my kids LOVE those too! We saw them in 2007 and didn't buy one, but all they talked about for the next two years was buying a marionette in China! They did! We came home with 2!

Cool Dumbo photos! That's a great perspective of the castle.

You saw a LOT of characters! I LOVE THAT! I felt like we saw more on our 2007 trip than on this one. We've never met the Fairy Godmother....but of course I don't think I could get my boys to wait in line for her!

Nice face painting! It's very pretty....love the colors.

Sorry to hear there was some sickness affecting your family. That's a hard one, but I'm glad the rest of you could still enjoy your time. I hope they feel better soon and can get back to the business of vacation!

Looking forward to more!

Yea, I was so glad Emily just had a headache and it wasn't the start of her getting sick.

Thanks!! I was pretty pleased with the amount of characters we saw.

Fortunately Emily was fine for the rest of the trip, but Manny... This was only the beginning of him not feeling good. It only got worse for him.


So i'm doing a lot of wedding planning this week. Making phone calls and we're in between a few different places. We actually went to look at a place yesterday. Which I really want, but it is outside, which that is what I wanted, but if it rains........ Oh, i don't know?

There is another place which i'm going to call shortly that is outside, but has an inside option in case it rains!! That sounds good. We're going to check that one out.
