Disney Trip

Kevin, his mother, Kaitlyn, and I headed down to Disney very early Wednesday morning.  Kaitlyn spent most of her time sleeping on the plane.  We arrived at 11 in the morning.  Disney was great. They picked up our bags for us, so we were able to hop on the bus and head straight over to the hotel and check in.  We picked the Animal Kingdom Lodge thinking Kaitlyn would love the animals right outside the room.  We were right.  She kept heading over to the window to point at the animals…

After we checked in, we headed over to Animal Kingdom for the afternoon.  Kaitlyn was still exhausted.  She completely passed out for a few hours.  She did wake up in time for dinner at the Rainforest Cafe.  By the time we got back to our room, our bags had been delivered and were waiting for us.

Thursday we headed back to Animal Kingdom.  Kaitlyn loved the characters…

We spent Friday at EPCOT.   We had lunch in “Germany” and dinner at the Coral Sea Restaurant.  Kaitlyn slept through dinner even though we picked the restaurant so she could watch the fish.

Friday was Halloween and we spent the day at the Magic Kingdom.  There’s nothing like riding The Haunted Mansion on Halloween!  My mom and I took Kaitlyn on It’s A Small World.  She was so cute.  Every time we entered a new “room” on the ride she would “ooohhh”.  We ate lunch in the Castle at “Cinderella’s Royal Table”.  Almost all of the princesses showed up.  Those that did come, stopped at the table to meet Kaitlyn.  Kaitlyn’s favorite was Princess Jasmine.  She even got a kiss from her!

After dinner, Kaitlyn got into her costume.  My little “ladybug” was ready for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.  Unfortunately she fell asleep and slept through the parade and fireworks.  I took a couple of pictures in her costume after we got back home since she wasn’t too cooperative that night.  She was very warm in the costume and it kept coming off piece by piece as the night went on…

We spent Sunday at Hollywood Studios.  Unfortunately, Kevin had to go home early that morning for work.  Kaitlyn loved the Beauty and the Beast show.  She kept clapping.  Right afterward, I discovered she had another tooth coming in…

Kaitlyn, Kevin’s mom, and I left Monday afternoon.  We were able to check in for our flight at the hotel and they took our luggage there too, so all we had to do when we got to the airport was go straight through security.  We took some pictures in the hotel lobby before we left.

Now that we’re home, we’re getting ready for Kaitlyn’s birthday and her 1 year checkup at the doctor’s.  Look for some more blog updates later this week!
