Amazing ...

Amazing is the one word that I think sums up our Walt Disney World vacation. Devin says it was seven days in pure paradise and Ava Mae thinks our resort looks like it might look in heaven. They were both right ...

We love staying all over Disney but, The Grand Floridian, is Disney's flagship resort and you know why from the moment you step on the resort property. The grounds are so beautiful, the restaurants are wonderful, and the staff cannot do enough for you. I have to say I am missing nightly turn down service and those chocolates they put on your pillow.

We spent six days in the various parks and ended up with many special experiences - including Lexi being chosen to dance on stage for the High School Musical number at Disney Studios, Devin being chosen to help the street performer in the Italy section of Epcot, Lexi and Devin being chosen from the audience to interact with Crush at Turtle Talk with Crush and both girls getting made over at the Bippity Boppity Boutique in Cinderella's Castle. That would be just a few of the experiences that made our vacation truly magical!!

We also chose to do some unique activities with the kids this time - at our resort all three kids went out on a 2 hours Pirate Cruise to find buried treasure, the girls went to a special tea party with Alice in Wonderland and the Mad Hatter, and Daune and Devin took in a Braves Spring Training Game at the Disney Wide World of Sports Complex.

We came home with hundreds of pictures, including the ones that the Disney Photo Pass professional photographers took, and I am still wading through them all. I know we will look back at these photographs for years to come and remember what a special vacation this was for our family!

We also love Port Orleans, in fact, when I first booked our trip this time the kids were a little bummed we were not staying there. They got over it pretty quickly once we arrived at GF.
