Disney World 2016 So this is supper late post but better later than never right??? So This was our last stop on our long travel trip. Adam had a show for work there and so we decided of course we would go! We got to stay at the Grand Floridian right on Disney World. It is awesome that you can just walk out your hotel and hop on the tram and it take you right to any park you want within minutes. It comes with a large price tag though! Were talking $450-1000 a night for just a hotel room! One thing they do is give you magic wrist bands that can have your tickets and credit card on them. If you stay at the resort you get them for free. If your not staying there order them before had they are really nice to have so that you don’t have to take a wallet into the park. I do recommend taking a little cash though because at the end of the night they have there carts with the toys that light up and a lot of them did not take the wrist band or credit card they only took cash. We went to Disney World 2 years prior and stayed about 1 mile away from Disney in a VRBO with a 3 bedroom condo with 4 pools and our room had views of the fireworks every night. That cost $180 a night so it was so fun each family just got a room. There are SOOOO many hotels right out side of Disney so make sure when you are planning a trip to check VRBO. We always use VRBO everywhere we go.
We went from Hawaii to Florida…….. That was a VERY long travel day. We left Maui at 11PM and got into Florida the following day at 6PM. Everyone did great for the most part. Once we finally made it to our hotel it was about 8:30 PM we ordered Room services and went to bed. We all woke up at 11:30am the next day. THANK GOODNESS everyone was able to sleep in and get the much-needed rest. That day we just spent relaxing.
We are lucky enough that they do separate Disney tickets for those who are there for conferences you can actually get 1/2 day passes for $60 each. So we do that half day for us starts at 4 so we meet Adam right after his meeting and head to Disney!
Can we just take a second to say how amazing this stroller is. Honestly if you are looking for a double you NEED this. It hold so much stuff. and we LOVE the boogie board that attached and pulls up so easy so when Beckham wants to sit he can and when he wants to stand he can. It really is the perfect stroller.
What is it with Disney they do the most amazing job of making it suck a magical place. Needless to say we all had a great time. Last year Beckham was not tall enough to go on a lot of rides His favorite ride was barnstormer He still remember it from last year and that was the ride he wanted to do over and over this year. That kid has a memory like no ones business! Adam and I would just trade-off on taking him on the rides while the other would stay with Jovi. Disney makes it nice that they give you stroller pass. So if you have young children that can’t go you go to the front and say i am staying back and they will give you a fast pass so that you can ride when they are done.
last year we got stuck on a ride that was broken and missed the parade! This sure we made sure we were not going to miss it! So we parked our self close to the exit here is why! There is a building where they say its Mickey’s magic it’s in the front of the park. After the fire works we rushed to so that Beckham could meet Mickey with NO LINE! You can meet the princesses and more as well! SO while everyone is watching the fire works we were able to walk in with no one and do a meet and greet with Mickey. We always make sure to bring 2 shirts for Beckham So that Mickey can sign his shirt. They won’t sign a shirt if you are wearing it and they won’t let you take it off in the room. So make sure you bring and extra shirt. Also we were able to still see the fireworks as well! because you are in and out for meet and greet so fast.
The rest of our days were spent walking around looking at alligators YES I said it we saw baby alligators on our walk!! A worker came by and said that we should not be over there and we need to be careful! UMMMM ok a this is right across from the hotel so ya you could say I probably could never live in Florida hahaha. Then we spend the rest of our time with lots of snuggle and some pool time and of course food 🙂
TRAVEL TIP!!! So I must say I have a huge travel tip when you are flying with a baby. So When we flew to Hawaii first, Adam was already out-of-town for work and meeting us there. So i flew with the kids without him. The flight there was ok. It’s a different ball game with 2 kids rather than just Beckham that’s for sure. by the end of the second flight I was handing my baby to random people because i don’t have 6 arms and can’t do it all. You try to wipe a kids but in a tiny little room holding another kid. it’s not an easy task I tell ya. So on our flight from Hawaii to Florida I decided I was just going to put her in her carrier my baby ergo (I am obsessed with I will save that for another time) It made my life SOOO much easier. She was able to sleep so much better and even when she was awake she was still happy because she was right agents me. I wish I would have don’t this the first 2 flights it would have made my life a thousand times easier. So if you are flying with a baby save your self the headache and bring your carrier and wear it the whole flight. The Ergo is amazing for so many reason it was easy to take on and off of my shoulders with out upsetting her and having to “pull her out” of it. I could just drop the shoulder straps and easily put them back on while sitting down.
