A Disney Fix

While it wasn’t exactly Disney World, we gave Owen a little Disney fix leading up to his birthday by visiting Disney on Ice. He was thrilled to see Mickey and Moana, and devastated when the show was over. So we gladly helped him drown his sorrows with some delicious Italian food and gelato in nearby…

Entering Two at Disney

Turning two at Disney World certainly can be a dream come true, and we think it was for Owen. He got to interact with a ton of characters, eat yummy treats and was even surprised with a stuffed Stormtrooper after he was sad to see them leave during lunch. Colin got a birthday treat as…

Earning Our Weight in Candy

We were very lucky to head back to Disney for another Halloween party evening. This year, we were a bit more candy-focused and managed to trick or treat our way into at least 10 pounds of sugary goodness. The rides and treats were fun, too, and we even caught up with Mickey in his costume!

The Most Magical of Kingdoms

Our second day at Disney was full of fun at the Magic Kingdom. We met more characters, went on a ton of rides and even snuck in a nap (or a trip to the pool) midday. It was our second park day in a row, so we were definitely ready for bed that night!

Back to Disney!

We apparently didn’t learn our lesson of how tiring Disney could be, and headed back to visit Mr. Mickey Mouse and friends for a long weekend. Owen’s obsessed with Mickey and friends, so it was a perfect time to let him meet his idols in person. He did so on day one with a trip…

A Disney Wrap Up

While there was tons of fun to be had in the theme parks, Disney did not disappoint during our other time spent on the grounds. It was a bit more relaxing (only slightly), and just as fun!

Halloween at Disney

We ended our Disney trip with a not-so-spooky night at the Magic Kingdom celebrating Halloween. We enjoyed rides, got candy, saw special shows and even had dinner at a beautiful table in Cinderella’s castle (meeting a few princesses along the way). A magical way to top off our last full day!

Party Animals at AK

Our fourth and final park was Animal Kingdom, and it brought its own dose of fun and adventure! We saw more animals than we could count, encountered a whole new world with Pandora and had a run in with more characters, to name a few things. After a French dinner, mom and dad even got…

Hollywood Thrilled

While we recounted a number of adventures in Hollywood Studios with Colin’s birthday adventures, we had many more highlights to share! Thanks to the Star Wars VIP Tour, we got to march behind the First Order. And if look carefully at the 1:48 mark, Colin’s idenification is checked by a Stormtrooper!
