Disney Excitement

Our family vacation this year is generating much excitement...we're going to Disney World! As children, Disney wasn't even really on the radar for me or just wasn't going to happen. So being able to take our kiddos when the magic of fairytales is so real they can almost taste it is truly wonderful.

We're staying at the Port Orleans Riverside Resort at Disney World for 3 nights. We may be a bit crazy, but we're going to hit the Magic Kingdom for just one day and then spending the other day at our resort and doing other things like riding the monorail, hopefully seeing some memorable sites along the way. We figure we'll do a longer tour of the parks when the kids are a bit older.

My Aunt Cle and Uncle Ed live just north of Tampa so they'll join us at the Magic Kingdom and then we'll spend the second half of our vacation at their home. We have lots of fun things planned: a trip to the beach at Seista Key, a live mermaid show at Weeki Wachee Springs and a cruise on the Crystal River to hopefully view some manatees--I'm not sure if that link is the company we're going with, and we're not donning wetsuits to go in the river with the beasts! We're also going to take in Rainbow Springs State Park, some disc golf and Eric and I are going to enjoy a date night out in Tampa while the kids stay with Cle and Ed.

All in all...the kids are of course most excited about the airplane, the pools (heated, thank goodness), seeing the princesses (Elena) and being big enough to ride the kiddie roller coaster (Kai) "I AM BIGGER!". I have a feeling we may need a vacation after vacation...
