Walt Disney World Highlights

As always, we had a wonderful time in Walt Disney World last week, maybe, even more so than usual.  This was a much needed time for us to get away and reconnect as a family, to recharge, and to escape from the reality of life. 

Hannah received this Cheshire cat as a gift from Alice in Wonderland. We were waiting for the afternoon parade, and a few cast members brought this to her, telling her that Alice wanted her to have it.  Definitely made our day, and especially Hannah's.  She showed her cat to everyone, proud to say that Alice gave it to her.

Love this picture!

Of course, we saw all of our friends, including the princesses.

We rode all of our favorite rides, plus a few "new" ones.  Hannah rode Splash Mountain for the first time.  She is finally tall enough for it.  We couldn't get her to ride the whole week until we decided we could do one more ride before we needed to leave.  She was so brave and only cried a few tears of relief after the last drop.  She proudly tells everyone now that she rode "the big hill!"
Disney always has beautiful landscaping, but this time of year is no exception.  Epcot hosts a Flower and Garden Festival every spring and this was my first time to go.  There are beautiful flower arrangements, a butterfly house, and topiaries of several favorite characters throughout the parks.

Hannah keeps telling us that she wants to ride "it's a small world" tomorrow.  Or maybe she'd like to go to Disneyland tomorrow.  Or tomorrow we'll go watch the Tinker Bell parade. She keeps telling me to fix the countdown so she can take off the circles so it will be time to go again.  If only it were that easy!  :)
