Disney Vacation!

We took a 5 night 6 day trip to Disney World in Orlando, FL.  It was fantastic! We had so much fun.  We stayed at the Beach Club Villa's right across the bridge from Epcot.  The villa was a 2 bedroom, 2 bath room with a full kitchen and living room.  We had plenty of space (not that we used it much) and it was decorated cute and was neat and kept up very nicely.  The pool included a water slide into a sand-bottom beach. We were able to enjoy it for 1 day before it was closed for the month for renovations, which worked out well since it turned cold and swimming was out of the question anyway...besides who wants to swim with you have 4 theme parks at your finger tips?!

We started the night we got there at Hollywood Studio's.  We headed to Epcot the next day and had dinner at Teppan Edo a Japanese steakhouse hibachi style.  The kids loved it and actually ate with chop sticks :)  We left and walked back to our villa while Aiden serenaded us with "hee hee...Shama-mon" from Michael Jackson.  We were in stitches as he did the moon walk, spun around and tossed his arms out to the side and tossed his head back as only Michael Jackson (and apparently Aiden) can do!

My mom came down one day to go to Cinderella's Royal Table with Jillian and I while Jay took the boys to the 50's diner in Hollywood Studio's.  Jillian was in princess heaven as she walked in and met Cinderella.  We walked up to the dining hall inside Cinderella's Castle and out came Snow white, then Belle from Beauty and the Beast and Princess Aurora from Sleeping Beauty and Ariel from The Little Mermaid.  She got such a joy out of meeting all the characters.  It was so magical.

The boys were on an adrenalin junkie quest.  They did The Rockin Roller Coaster, Test Track, and a couple managed to hit the Tower of Terror, while a couple opted out. :)

The lines weren't so bad (for Disney) and we got to hit all the rides we wanted to, we saw alot of shows as well.  All in all we went until we dropped and loved every minute of it.
