Walt Disney World Vacation - Day 2

Sunday, January 31, 2010


Okay, friends, let's face it - I'm going to blog about Day 2 (Sunday), but not with too many words, because MOST of you just want to see pictures of the 3 adorable Caterpillars, like GO above.

So we woke up in Gainesville, FL - everyone in a great mood!  (YAY!)

Please note VERY carefully what GO is wearing in these pictures.  Isn't she adorable?

Breakfast was a lovely buffet at the hotel.  CW enjoyed warm grits with REAL bacon - his favorite!

OH NO, you say - why is GO in different clothes in this picture?  Well, that's what happens when you VOMIT your breakfast on mummy at the table.

So unpleasant...

We jumped in the car and headed straight to Walt Disney World.  The goal was to be checked-in by noon, so we could eat lunch inside the Magic Kingdom Park.  The Walt Disney World sign always excites me!
Our Resort Sign was beautiful, too.
I said, "yes, B10, you may walk around the cabin, please do not get dirty."

I think he only heard the "yes" part...  Meet our "Cabin Frog", named Granite Walter.

It did not take us long to load up the truck with our Park-Going Equipment and set out.

WOOHOO!  Magic Kingdom Sign!
I heard a neat trick, and decided to try it this time.  When we left our car, I took a photo of the parking area, that way Hubby and I could find it at the end of the day, without searching.

We were in the Goofy lot, at the TTC (Ticket & Transportation Center), where we walked to the monorail.

At this point the Caterpillars (and Hubby - who hasn't been to WDW since 1986), just wanted to get INSIDE - that's the "stop taking pictures Mum", expression.
Lunch was top of our list, Pecos Bills (hamburgers, etc).  Very good Angus burgers for everyone, nice fries, plus yogurt and chocolate cake.  And GIANT drinks...GIANT!
While in Frontierland, we rode Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.  CW was a bit nervous at first, but became a VERY enthusiastic rollercoaster rider.  B10 was kind enough to wait with GO and I.
With food in our belly and a rollercoaster under our belts, it was GO's turn to do something.  She was dreaming of Princesses, so we decided to take the Caterpillars to visit them.
Here she is sleeping peacefully.

And B10 is being a great sport about it all.

See how peaceful she is?

Uh oh....

Snow White, meet Grumpy Dwarf...

One of Hubby's favorite photos:
10 seconds later (same room), she's fine.
Didn't seem to mind Princess Aurora one bit.
She REALLY like this nice Cast Member, who gave her a sticker!

But, sadly, did not enjoy the Princess Ears that we tried to buy her...
Now that she was awake, B10 and CW rode rides that we could ALL go on.  Starting with Winnie the Pooh.  I actually enjoyed this ride a lot more than I thought I was going to.

Snow White's Scary Adventure wasn't very scary, but it also wasn't overly interesting either... I thought the gems in the ceiling were kind of cool, though.
And, of course, all my boys had to see if any one of them was the Right and True King of England.  Because, we love the Sword in the Stone.
Magic Kingdom has a great Baby Care Center, where GO got a diaper change, change of clothes and some Mummy to drink.  I love this outfit!
Before Dinner, we headed to Space Mountain with our Fastpasses.  WHEW - what a FUN ride.  It's also the first time I didn't take my glasses off before a rollercoaster (totally forgot) and it was so cool to SEE the ride!  (Well, as much as you can in the dark.)

CW met Marcus, one of the Cast Members who showed him all the electronic stuff.
Dinner was at the Columbia House, chicken nuggets and such, still more LARGE drinks, but no yougurt this time...

Night was falling, so we headed to Buzz Lightyear, with barely any wait time.  GO was able to ride this one also, and she LOVED the laser guns.
Darkness had fallen, and even with the extra hours (open until 11 pm!), we were READY to head back to the cabin and sleep.

The monorail ride was fun, but instead of walking to the car, we opted to Tram it back out!  (Feet are TIRED!)
Everyone was SLEEPY.  CW feel asleep almost immediately.

B10 wanted his lollipop, and we found him like this, barely any eaten.

Wait, SOMEONE isn't tired....

We'll see you tomorrow!  (In Epcot!)
