Lil Ones First Disney Trip part 1

The time had finally come. Our daughter, all of 7 months old, had been itching to go to Disney World for the longest of times lol. She even tried telling us in a goo goo gaa gaa kind of way. So we did what any parent would do and packed up the bags, Mickey and Minnie Ears and made the drive up to the Happiest Place On Earth.

This wasn't our first trip up to Disney but it sure was a special and unique trip. Our first trip with our daughter, our first trip as a married couple and our first trip as annual pass holders. A trip of firsts. A trip with and baby and also my wife being 5 months pregnant with our second daughter. It was definitely a different kind of trip with a different game plan going into it. Instead of the hustle and bustle of a normal trip this one was going to be slow, take our time and enjoy the little things.

After eagerly awaiting for this trip the morning finally arrives. Early Thursday morning was upon us. Loaded up the car, drove up and picked up Grandma and off we went. Next stop Disney!

Our first stop once we got up there was Downtown Disney for some pre gaming.

After a couple of hours we headed over to Hollywood Studios for our second stop of the trip. We had planned on Hollywood Studios the first evening with the sole intentions of catching Fantasmic. I was excited since this was the first time both my wife and mom have seen the show. Needless to say they loved it but I missed the dragon which was a no show.

This was a special moment. The first time in her life that she got to meet Mickey Mouse in person. She was so excited she fell asleep in line while we waited lol. She woke up just in time and was so intrigued and curious by this big mouse in front of her. Not know what to make of him, she cracked a smile and played with his nose. A magical moment.

Her first experience with fireworks and lights and sounds like this. She was paying attention that's for sure. Our first day at Disney was a blast.

Day number 2 we headed over to Epcot. We just lucked out and got there a week before the Flower and Garden festival started so they had all the topiaries all out and ready for the following week.

So lunch came around and being the big pizza fan that I am we decided to try out the pizza at the new Via Napoli restaurant. I must say it is one of the best pizzas I have ever had, and most expensive.

So it was time for her very first Disney ride. Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros boat ride at the Mexican pavilion.

Next up was the Finding Nemo ride at the Living Seas pavilion.

So after a fun filled exhausting long day it was time to head back to the hotel. Meanwhile the little one wasn't waiting to start her nap time

Off we go for the day. The next day was a big day. Her first trip to the Magic Kingdom.

To be continued . . . . . . .

Please remain seated and keep arms and legs inside the vehicle at all times! This ride does go upside down!
