This was our flight from ATL to Orlando. I guess B was already exhausted.



Dinner that night at our resort. That orange cupcake tasted like an orange creamsicle! It was sooo good. And it was kids night so B has a chef's hat on and she was able to make her own pizza.




Our first day we went to Epcot. Bella isn't used to getting up super early and she wasn't in the best of moods.


She didn't want to take any photos. Little booger. But she finally cheered up.


Right away she wanted to get her face painted in the OutPost in Epcot.



She sat so well. I didn't realize there would be glitter or I would have said no to it. It was a pain to get off of her face.

Epcot was alot of fun and awesome food. We had the photopass so I have more photos but they are coming in the mail.

This was after we did the Nemo ride and went through the aquarium.


And of course she had to get some Nemo bath toys.

On the way back to the resort. B was giving her mad look.





Day 2: Animal Kingdom

It was quite cold this day.


Riding the Triceratops Spin.


We fast passed our way to the head of the Jungle Safari line!












One our third day at the resort we saw some ducklings that had just hatched.




They were sooo cute to watch.


Random photo op.



Day three we just relaxed, swam and napped. Then that night we walked over to the Polynesian to watch the fireworks from Magic Kingdom. The Poly is super nice. I would really like to try and stay there the next time we go.
B didn't care much for the fireworks but she loved the sand.




Day 4: Magic Kingdom!
We had a character breakfast scheduled before the park opened so we could get into the park early.



The Princess Character Breakfast!





Snow White was the most personable. Bella loved it!

After that we ran over to ride Dumbo and the Tea cups before it got busy.



After that B needed a nap so we walked around and dh rode some rides.
Then we went to have a Dole Whip. We tried both the pineapple and the orange. The orange was mine and B's fave.


On the way out to go rest at the hotel we stopped at the confectioner's shop. YUM



We went back to Magic Kingdom that night for dinner and to watch the fireworks. Bella freaked so this is the only photo I was able to take.



We were exhausted so day 5 we rested.

Day 6: Sea World!








Evil child!


After a nap she did cheer up.



Day 7:
I guess the whole week finally caught up to B because she slept until after 10:30 and she had went to bed at 8 the night before...


We decided to run to Epcot one last time and Bella insisted on the same face paint as the last time.


Mickey Mouse Ice Cream!




Then we headed back to the resort around 4:30 to swim for a bit.



And pipe cleaner fun on the plane trips back home.

I sooo wanna do this! But I have a somewhat personal question for ya... How much did it all cost? Seems like a small fortune and I am wondering when we should start saving.

I'm glad you had so much fun!

Nicole it definitely was a small fortune. Around $3,500. I haven't tallied it all up yet but that is the ballpark.
We stayed 8 nights and 9 days so that isn't too bad I don't think. But we did get discounted Disney World tickets and discount room rates too...
I can work it out and pm you if you want...

Looks great! I've been jealous of your pics on fb. We're about to start saving up for our own trip in a few years.

Awesome pics and looks like it was a great trip!!! So glad you guys enjoyed it!
Bella is soooo adorable!

Did you find that B was at a good age to enjoy most of the activities?

We went on a disney cruise when J was around 20 months...while we had a BLAST, i felt that she was still too young to enjoy most activities and to really enjoy the "princess" and "disney" magic experience. I think now would have been a better time or even when she's older (like around 5 maybe?).

B loved the princess and getting her face painted. The rest she could have cared less.... We probably will plan our next trip for when she is 5 or 6,

We will however be taking a Disney cruise in the next year and a half!

My cousin (who goes to Disney once a year) says 5 is the ideal age for a first trip...at that age they can really get into it, and they'll most likely remember it. I do think Grace would go crazy over the princesses right now, and she'd probably have a good time, but might not fully appreciate it.

And the Disney cruises look fabulous!

Yeah i've heard too that 5 is the ideal age. That's when we plan to make another trip...though baby#2 will be younger but whatever....

The Disney Cruises are AMAZING...seriously out of this world. We went on the Disney Dream...only 3 nights/4 days. I'd opt for a 5 night cruise next time. There is lots to do and you feel rushed/tired to do it all in 3 nights. But even though J was too young to enjoy it all...DH and I enjoyed it more than we thought we would!
