Disney Vacation

We feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to spend a week at Disneyworld. It was a wonderful time for the entire family. Being Jett's first time, we were all eager to see how he would react to the characters and the was everything we hoped for and more.

First, we discovered that there was a cheerleader competition at WDW while we were there....they seemed to overtake the resort where we were staying...Port Orleans Riverside. The cheers were everywhere and the noise was a little much for all of us. Upon calling to request a quieter room, we were told that we would get a call back within an hour. So, we continued our day at Epcot and received a call about an hour later. They upgraded us to a very nice room in The Contemporary. Woo-hoo! What a blessing. It was a much larger room and the amentities were amazing.

We rode every ride possible (most of them more than a few times), saw many shows and met lots of characters. Kaitlyn's favorite ride is Mt. Everest and we enjoyed it in the rain! She also met Marie, her favorite cat, in France (in Epcot) one day which was a huge surprise. Madison loves Cali River Rapids, so we all rode it with ponchos on...twice! JT got soaked both times... Jett loved Toy Story Mania and Buzz Lightyear the most. He fell in love with Mary Poppins and Cinderella.....gotta watch that boy!

Kaitlyn was able to celebrate her 13th birthday while we were there as well. What a treat to get Happy Birthday wishes everywhere we went. We at breakfast at Chef Mickey's, lunch in France and dinner at The California Grill (watching the fireworks high above the castle). What a beautiful day!

Plenty of pictures were taken and we enjoyed every minute of it! What a huge blessing!
