We are back and sort of back into the swing of things at home! What a great vacation! The weather was picture perfect. Hot and sunny all day and then cool, breezy evenings. We stayed at The Boardwalk hotel which I highly recommend. It was so neat! I wish I would have taken more pictures of it! There were great shops, restaurants and entertainment right in our hotel. We could also walk to Hollywood Studios and Epcot which was awesome! Tommy got his fill of Star Wars, AJ fell in love with Cowgirl Jessie, and Chris got his fill of Norway. We have wonderful pictures to share, I don't even know where to begin! I think I will start with our first night and first official day at the parks. Then I will divide the pictures in future entries according to parks, and character meet and greets.
Our first night we hung out at the hotel. We went to Kat Cora's restaurant which was great and then went for an evening swim. The boys topped their night off with snacks and a movie in bed. The next morning we got up early and headed over to Hollywood Studios. Our favorite ride, Toy Story Mania is there and you must arrive early if you want to get a fast pass. I love Disney, but man, some of those people trying to get fast passes are just awful! Throwing elbows, cutting in line, and walking 6 across to prevent you from getting ahead of them. A little ridiculous, but worth it for the ride. We have so much fun on it! We also met Woody this day. Buzz was busy on a space mission! AJ was star struck. He couldn't believe his eyes! This year AJ got his own autograph book and quickly learned the routine of opening it for the characters and handing the pen and book over. He loved doing this! Here are the pictures from our first night and day at Disney.
