You guys I am so giddy with excitement about our trip to Disney World and I just can't hide it. Hubby's cousin who lives in England came up with the idea of meeting up there last Spring and we loved everything about that plan. As soon as we told my mom, she was game and we went into full planning mode :). I just love that my mom always wants to go places with us.
I am a planner and with 3 kids, I don't go anywhere without a plan of action. The plan doesn't always work out but I have an idea what I want to do. I am flexible with my plans and really only use them as blueprint to map out our day. We are staying at the B hotel and plan on just riding the shuttle to the resort every time we go.
We only plan to go to 2 parks on this trip, the Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom. I really wanted to do Hollywood studio and Epcot but we all agreed that the boys are way too young for multiple days of amusement park. We plan to do a day of rest before and after each park outing this way we actually get to hang out with hubby's cousin too. We will be chilling by the pool or checking out downtown Disney on our off days.
Anyway, here is how I planned our day at each park. Since I am somewhat familiar with the parks and read a multitude of reviews, I mapped out the things that I think my boys will love. The plans are flexible and I also booked a few fast passes so that we can skip the lines. When we come back I will let you know how well we did with these plans and if it was worth taking small kids on this adventure
Our day at Magic Kingdom
- First stop will be at the Town Square Theater to meet Mickey (this is a must, I gotta get my picture before the kids get crazy, plus I am hoping the lines won't be too long)
- Then we will go to Fantasyland where all the fun rides are. We plan to do:
- Peter Pan
- Winnie the Pooh
- Tea Party
- It's a Small World
- Dumbo (we have fast pass at 11:30)
- After all the fun, we'll do lunch at Columbia Harbour House
- Since we will be at Liberty, I plan to ride the River Boat after lunch
- Then we'll go back to Fantasyland and do the Prince Charming Carousel
- Followed by the Tea Party (we have a fast pass at 1:30)
- I am hoping the boys will be needing a break at this point so we plan on doing a show. We'll head to Adventureland where we'll do
- The Enchanted Tiki Room Show
- The Magic Carpet of Aladdin
- The Jungle Cruise
- Pirates of the Carribean (we have a fast pass at 4:30)
If we have time I wouldn't mind checking out buzz light years and the haunted house. I will be thrilled if we do half the stuff that I plan to do :).
Our day at Animal Kingdom
- The first thing I want to do is the Kilimanjaro Safari, I've heard so many great things about this and the boys are all about animals right now
- Then we'll get some cupcakes at the Kusafiri Bakery
- We have a meet and greet at Camp Mini (10:00)
- and since we are here we'll check out the Festival of the Lion King.
- We have a fast pass for the Kilimanjaro Safari, if the boys loved it we'll go back if not then we'll just forego it.
- Lunch at the Flame Tree BBQ, I heard great things about this place
- We'll go to the It's Tough to be a Bug since we are already in Discovery Island
- Then we'll head to Asia where we'll do a show if the boys are tired or a trek if we need to help them get tired :)
- Marahajah Jungle Trek
- Flights of Wonder Show
- After this we'll head to Dinoland to check out the playground and let the boys run around for a bit
- Boneyard playground
- Triceratop Spin
If we are not too tired then we'll have dinner at the Rainforest Cafe
We plan to be up bright and early on the days that we go to the park. It's going to be very interesting with the kids. I hope everyone does well and has as good of a time as I am planning. I am just so excited and can't wait for this awesome adventure. Have you been to Disney World with young kids? What kind of plans did you make and how well did you fare?
