Disney World commercial (I LOVE those commercials) and waited to see if they would notice the signs posted along the roads. They didn't, so we pulled over and told them where we were going! They happily sang along with the CD as we entered the parking lot. Corny, maybe. But every time they see the commercial at home (and it comes on often!) or hear the music, they'll hopefully remember their own trip! We arrived as the park opened and started with a Magic Carpet Ride! Afterwards, I found my favorite ride, Pirates of the Caribbean! It was a mix of new and old! They took a classic ride from my past and mixed in a little Jack Sparrow. Awesome! My kids loved it. We all did! We didn't have to wait in line for more than fifteen minutes for any ride before sitting down to lunch. The park wasn't crowded and the temperature was very comfortable. Compared to some of the other theme parks, the rides are long! It makes waiting in line worth it! Another plus? Sam could ride almost every ride. He did ride everything except for Space Mountain (it had a 90 minute wait -and he was too short- so we skipped it) and maybe one or two other rides. Towards the end of the day, the lines were longer and there were more visitors! I'm glad we were able to make the rounds and see (and do) everything the kids wanted to do.
Magic Kingdom numerous times and I've been to Epcot once. Being able to take my children and watching it all through their eyes made our trip one of the best days of my life. It was certainly the best vacation. I was so happy when I left the park that making the mad dash through the crowds to the ferry (and then the parking lot) with a stroller didn't dampen my spirits. And it was a little more than chaotic! I can't wait to go again! Next time, maybe we'll check out one of the other parks too! I want to go on safari!
