Disney World Vacation

Last year, my mom won a trip to Walt Disney World. Yup, you read that right. She WON a trip. To Disney World. All expenses paid. She’s entered every contest with the word “Disney” in it that she’s ever seen, and her time finally came!

I had been twice before, once at eight years old and again at 24. Both times were amazing in different ways, but this was the boy’s first time. I dreaded the five hour flight, but he did amazingly well. In fact, the whole week he did great.

We live five minutes from Disneyland, we have passes, and Cooper's been more time than I can count since he was two months old. But Disney World, is a WORLD of its own. We had an amazing time and it was so great watching the wonder and amazement on my little boy's face at everything he saw.

I thought for this week’s Wednesday’s Walk, I would share some of our trip with you, by sharing some of my favorite pictures.

In the car on the way to the airport. It's way too early to be sing "John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt."

On the plane, all he needed was Gram's ipod and some headphones.

Oh, Country Bear Jamboree, how I miss you...

This one is big, because it was the first time he wasn't scared to death of the characters. He loved every single one we saw, and we got so many great pictures. This one got me teary...

His first pair of Mickey ears!

Just bein' silly...

In front of the Living Seas...my favorite part of Epcot...

It's Bruce!

More character meet-ups. Just look at that smile!

We stayed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. This was the view of the "Savannah" from our hotel balcony. Every morning, as soon as Cooper woke up, he would say "Animals sleeping?" and he would rush to the window.

Gram, Coop, Mommy, and Aunt Patte in front of the Tree of Life at Animal Kingdom.

Hmmm, we've seen that before...

We did as much as we could in a short amount of time, visiting each of the parks at least twice. We saw shows, ate great food, and bought way too many souveniers. The trip was over way too soon, and we can't wait to go back!
