The Disney Adventure

Kaylani made her first trip to Disney yesterday at the young age of 7.5 weeks. Already, she's ahead of her Daddy who didn't make it there until he was closer to 1 year old. One thing that's for sure is that neither of us will remember our first trip.

The day started off great at the Magic Kingdom. We saw Donald and Daisy Duck once we got there, and a few other newerer Disney characters that Daddy was unfamiliar with. And then we had lunch before the crowds got out of hand. Oh, and when I say we, I mean everyone except Kaylani and Zoe who didn't wake up until after lunch.

After lunch, we all walked around a bit more and went on a few rides. Even if Kaylani was awake and able to remember anything from Disney, she would only remember the inside of her Maya Wrap, her carseat, or Daddy's chest from her Bjorn. Since she couldn't be in the sun, she didn't get to see very much at all!

We went to Epcot as well, but she didn't see anything there either, even though the sun went down. Not only was it dark, but it was also a bit cold as temps dropped into the 50's! Doesn't sound too cold, but in a thin long sleeve onesie, it was much too cold.

Kaylani didn't sleep much in the afternoon or night, so that of course meant that our final ride of the day, the car ride, was it's own little adventure. Thinking she may have been cried out from the monorail or the cold trolley ride through the parking lot, we put her in the car and started the 15 min drive to our place. After 10 minutes of traffic and crying/screaming, we pulled over to take a quick break only to see Kaylani smile at us when we took her out of the carseat. It's like she was saying "gotcha!" to us!

Anyways, that was Kaylani's first trip to Disney. Today is a day of nothing before heading to a New Years Eve party. Not sure if Kaylani will make it to midnight, but we're sure gonna try! It'd be nice if she did, but also nice if she slept so tomorrow's trip to Sea World goes alright. Either way, 2009 is sure to be a great year. Happy New Year to everyone!

Enjoy it while it lasts. The next time you won't be so lucky. And those unnamed Disney characters? You'll be able to quote chapter and verse from each of their 3 movies while at the character breakfast. Dealing with princesses and all the pink and ruffles was alll a new experience for me. Disney is a life time brand. First they get you with the little kid show like the Wiggles, then it's on to the Princess fairy tales. Before you know it you are onto Hannah Montana. It is a slippery slope and the first taste is always free!

Disney was anything BUT free!
