Where I’d Like to Be

I’ve been looking into some things today and this is definitely where I’d like to be…


The Countdown has Started

AH, the countdown to Disney World is underway. We are currently on day 20. 20 days till we leave. WOAH!!! That’s crazy. I remember when I thought it would never get here and now….

Well, anyway I made the traditional Mickey head countdown with the kids the other night. This time I let each of them color the heads, plus I colored a few, I couldn’t resist.

I could never get a picture of the kids standing in front of the countdown so you’ll have to settle for just a picture of the door, all by it’s self. Here’s a closeup

So each day they take turns tearing one down that they colored. God we cannot wait. Super excited and just ready for a vacay.

Some advice

I would love some advice from those novice Walt Disney World goers… if you will. I am taking my 2 1/2 year old boy, who is pretty high maintenance and my 4 year old girl, to Disney World. I need some tips, can you help?

  1. Do you think Pirates of the Caribbean is too scary for them? My son LOVES pirates. But they have never seen the movie. They love the Peter Pan pirates (we’ll definitely do that ride).
  2. Is Stitch’s Great Escape too scary for them? They are in LOVE with Lilo & Stitch as I stated in an earlier post here.
  3. Is Soarin’ too scary for them to ride?
  4. Does anyone have any tips on keeping the kids relaxed on our trip? We have a DVD player but even they get sick of that from time to time.

I just can’t seem to make up my mind about these rides and if the kids will enjoy them or scare the C-R-A-P out of them. I would appreciate anything anyone can give me on any of the above questions. I have read up on these attractions and I just feel like I can’t get a straight answer. One book says yes and another says no. What do you think?
