Disney diary

I have decided to use my craft blog as a place to keep a record of my daily diary for my disney vacation.

Thursday 3rd November.
Traveled up to Gatwick in our faithfull astra, bless our little ole motor for getting us there safely.  The girls watched a few films but Aimee's screen decided not to work, we hoped this was not a sign of things to come luck wise!!!!
We met up with my husbands Sister and brother in-law and thier daughter Rhianna, the night before the flight from Gatwick as we had traveled up from Devon to stay over night, so that we would all be relatively fresh for the 9hr & 50 min flight on Friday!

Friday 4th November
This is my first time travelling further than Spain on a flight so slightly nervous about how well my 5 and 7 year old girls would be onsuch a long flight, i needn't of worried they were so well behaved it was unreal to be honest!

Then the lenghthy process of getting into the USA, i made a small boo boo and had left the wrong villa address on  the Esta form and got slightly flumoxed when the guy asked where we were staying as i had conflicting info!!! 

All good in the end just a bit of queueing - the car Steve had booked was not available so we were upgraded to a Jeep.

Saturday 5th November.
The first day was good, the morning was spend at approx 7.30 going shopping to get some food in the cupboards.  the early afternoon was spent by the pool.  Aimee constantly swimming up and down the pool,  with Chloe playing the role of the swimming instuctor!

For the afternoon we all went to get our first experience of disney, by tripping to the magic kingdom.  The girls all saw some disney characters and had a picture with chip and dale.  We were on our way home just about to leave when Chip and Dale chipmunks came through, Tracey said "Go girls, go" (or words to that effect), Steve started striding with Chloe, Tracey with Rhianna and Aimee got tipped out of the buggy that we bought for Chloe with me saying go on Aimee go for it!!!  The girls followed the characters along and all got thier pics taken.

Sunday 7th November
Today we went to hollywood studios,we went go and see the little mermaid show where steve lost his sunglasses that he had only just bought!!! Honestly men should really use handbags!
We had a lot of character pic opportunities yesterday and we all split up in the queues so that the girls would not have to queue, to be honest it was quite funny to have the girls running from one character to another and not having to queue up.   We all went on the tower of terror ride i was not overly keen as i dont like vertical drop rides very much, it was quite dark and i think Aimee was fairly scared, when we got off Chloe said she didnt want to go back on it!!

Chloe lost her 2nd baby tooth, which was sweet, what a better place to loose a tooth!

Afterwards we went to Walmart and picked up a float jacket for chloe and some swim goggles.  We were so late getting back from Walmart that Trac etc had all had a sleep and we had only just arrived back at the villa.  We stayed at the villa for the evening and Steve and Aimee were in the pool until the light had gone!!!

Monday 8th November
5am!!!!!!! Tracey warned me about this.... so we are all up and about with not a lot to do as the parks dont open until 9am.  That said we will be there nice and early to make the most of our day.
