We just got home last night from our vacation to Disney World. I am going to do a post for each day that we were gone- posting pictures and telling what we did each day. This is really for us for the most part- since I know how exciting it can be to look at other people’s vacation pictures I won’t feel bad if you don’t want to look at our vacation pictures.
Day 1- We had to get out the door by 4 am to catch our flight. We had everything packed and in the car the night before but it was still awfully early! On the way to the airport Hailey got car sick- I’m guessing because she didn’t eat anything and drank a little bit of milk. It didn’t sit well with her tummy and the back roads we had to go on to get to the airport.
In order to save some money we had to take 3 different airplanes (it was a lot cheaper than having only one switch, which we always have to do anyways). And in order to save money we also only checked one bag and brought the rest of our stuff as carry-ons. So we had to get on and off of 3 different airplanes with an almost 3 year old, 2 suitcases, a laptop bag, a diaper bag, a backpack and a stroller. Fun times. Actually it went very, very smoothly and we didn’t have any problems at all.

When we arrived in Florida we went to where the Disney bus was waiting to take us to our hotel.
Hailey was thrilled to be on the bus! I was not so thrilled though- because the driver didn’t seem to know how to keep his foot on the gas. He made me soooooo sick!
We arrived at our hotel and got checked in and then looked around a little bit. We decided to stay in one of the value resorts this time (the cheapest of the Disney resorts). We have stayed in their moderately priced resorts before and loved it. But considering that we spend most of our time at the parks and very little time at the hotel we decided to go cheap and stay in the value resorts. We actually also loved the themes at the All Star Movies Resort that we stayed at- it had 101 Dalmatians and Toy Story themed areas that we knew Hailey would love. We found that while the rooms were a little bit smaller than the other resort we stayed at, everything else was pretty much the same.
Hailey and I posed for a picture.

After we looked around at our hotel for a little while and had a yummy dinner (all of our food was free for our entire trip- it was a deal we got when we booked our trip) we headed over to Magic Kingdom.
We posed for a quick picture before heading off to have some fun.
Cinderella’s castle as we entered the park. Hailey was sooooo excited to see the castle!
We let Hailey decide which ride to go on first, and she picked Dumbo- she’d been talking about going on it for weeks.
A quick picture before our first ride.
Hailey loved the Dumbo ride- she was so excited that she was able to control Dumbo and make him go up and down. (Sorry that she is a bit out of focus!)
The crowds were pretty light so we were able to go on several more rides and let Hailey play on the Pooh playground before we headed back to our hotel to go to bed. It was a great first day!
