The Home Stretch to the Magic Kingdom

We were very fortunate because I had a snow day from school on the Friday we were leaving.  We were able to get a head start and get down to our hotel in South Carolina earlier than expected.  We even managed to find a Sweet Frogs along the way to stop at off of I95.  

We have discovered Hampton Inns.  They serve a great hot breakfast….for a hotel that is.  We could make our own waffles, there were muffins, omelets, cereal…and the list goes on and on.

The girls were such troopers when we arrived at Disney World.  Addisan is such a wonderful big sister to Campbell.  She truly looks after her.  I love this picture of the two of them because they are still smiling after a long car ride while Tommy checks us in.

When we arrived in our room, it reminded me almost of a cruise ship.  They did our towels into fancy shaped animals.  

The first thing the girls did when we arrived to our hotel room was go out onto our patio overlooking the “safari.”

Here is what we saw daily outside of our window.  It was amazing!

On the first day, we were not in our room for more than an hour before catching the shuttle bus to Downtown Disney.  The shuttle system was fabulous!  We did not have to wait more than fifteen minutes for any of our shuttles.  We often took advantage of the wait by taking pictures. 

There was so much to do and see there.  We did not have as much time there as we would have liked due to our dinner reservation at our hotel at Boma.  The food was AWESOME!  They had entertainment and kid friendly choices for dinner.  The girls dined on chicken nuggets and macaroni and cheese.

This is what my plate looked like…..many African dishes that were so yummy!!

This was my dessert plate.  I had some of the best bread pudding in the world!

Addisan started noticing all the subtle Mickey Mouse symbols throughout the hotel and parks.  This was the one that was on the back of her chair that began her quest to locate more Mickeys.  

She even started making her own.

After dinner, we walked to the site at our hotel where we could use night goggles to watch the animals.  It was pretty cool!
