Magic Kingdom Day 3

When I was the age my kids are, you would never have caught me on a roller coaster of any kind. My kids are obsessed! Journey wasn't tall enough for some of the rides, but the other 2 were. Here we are just after the big drop on Splash Mountain

Eric and Jeb on Thunder Mountain Railroad

I had spent the last year telling the kids that the characters won't talk to them. Jeb understood that it is because they are just people dressed up, but the girls didn't get that yet. We walked into Town Hall to meet Mickey with our hats (Eric and I got our hats when we were there on our honeymoon in 2007!) and Mickey greeted us and made small talk! After telling the kids so many times that he wouldn't talk, they were a little stunned. Then Jeb, my little thinker, was trying to figure out how it worked by asking very specific questions. He asked what Mickey's favorite color is, and Mickey said "hmmm, well haha, I don't know!" So he tried asking a couple of other questions to get him to answer. A couple of weeks later, he said that he could tell it was radios that made him talk :)

Jeb used some of his gift money to buy a Buzz Lightyear toy. So of course we had to take a picture next to the giant Buzz Lightyear at our hotel! The kids are standing down by his feet, they are hard to see!

There's Journey with her Journey doll that she bought. She sings Its a Small World in English and the language of whatever country she's from (Kenya?)

Happy boy-at Disney, wearing a t-shirt in December, running through Toy Story statues with his brand new Buzz Lightyear

We had gone back to the hotel to nap because the park was open really late that night. I think Jeb was too excited to sleep much in the hotel room, so he fell asleep on the bus!

All the kids' favorite ride, The Barnstormer! Or as Vivi and Journey call it, the Barn Farmer :)

And of course, the Dumbo ride!
