ºOº Walt Disney World ºOº !!!

I don't think I mentioned our trip to WDW this past January. After the whole divorce thing was set in motion, my parents decided to come here to be with us for Christmas. They would have been near Orlando around that time, so I mentioned the idea of a Disney trip instead. They thought it was a wonderful idea! So my WONDERFUL, AMAZING, GENEROUS parents paid for us all (Me, my DD and my Brother) to fly down to Orlando and go to Disney World!

K and I spent a week there and my brother a couple days less. I wanted to stay! It was so nice to arrive to 60 degree weather in the middle of January. When we got back there was a LOT of snow here.

We went to Magic Kingdom one day and Animal Kingdom another day. For a 4.5 y/o that was plenty! We also went to Downtown Disney and had a wonderful time browsing the stores. I have to say I was less than thrilled with the "scrapbook" store. But I did get an album from Disney World for our pictures.

Anyway, I thought I'd share the Layouts that I've done so far. Between my Dad and I we took over 1000 pictures! Needless to say, I won't be scrapping them all ;)

The first one is the title page. I just finished it last night. I love the way it turned out, but I wish the stickles would have been a little more evenly spread out under the ghost letters. I added the quote from Walt Disney that says "I only hope that we don't lose sight of one thing, that it was all started by a mouse."

Then there is the Layout from the Finding Nemo Show at Animal Kingdom. It was WONDERFUL! Unfortunately we weren't allowed to take flash pictures inside :(. I got around that by finding pictures that someone else took and had posted online. The actors are the same, so it didn't really matter that we didn't take them. plus I can't imagine getting better pictures than these!

The next layout is Kendalyn meeting "her" Fairy Godmother. She really loved meeting all the characters, she acted as though they been best friends for years. Of course in her mind they have been! We literally had to pull K away, she would have talked all day!

Who can visit WDW without taking a spin on the Tea Cup ride? Not us! That's for sure! That's my brother riding with us. It was the first time Randy and I have been back to WDW since we went in 1982 (maybe '83, I can't remember exactly, I was 8 ;) ) We all had such a good time. It was wonderful to experience Disney again, but even better to be with my family and also see it through my child's eyes!

This wasn't at WDW, but along the strip to the RV Park where we stayed. K wanted to play Mini Golf SO badly! Of course Nanny can't deny K ANYTHING, so even though she felt icky, we went and play Mini Golf! K took to it like a Pro! It was really fun, I can't remember the last time I played.

So far, that's all I've gotten done, but I'm still working on them. I have all the pictures printed from WDW so I'll do those first, and then when I'm done with those, I will start on the ones from Animal Kingdom. I'll try to post them as I do them rather in batches.
