Disney Trip Report: Day 4

Give it up for day 4!  Woo hoo!  By now we had been away from home for 8 days and no major meltdowns.  Life is good. :)

IMG_0737 We started off our morning in the Magic Kingdom.  We rode the train around to Toon Town and the fun begins.

IMG_0765 Goofy’s Barnstormer is a roller coaster ride designed with little guys in mind.  It has drops and twists and turns but they are quite gentle.  Ds4 does not like loud or dark rides, but he decided to give this one a try.

IMG_0741 This is something new I’ve seen around Disney…the attraction “gate keepers” blowing bubbles as you enter.  Very cool.  Check out ds2’s shirt…he rocks. :)

IMG_0746 Ds4 is excited!

IMG_0754 He loved it!  This pic is from the second time he rode!  Another daredevil in the making.

Toon Town is home to Mickey and Minnie’s houses and Donald Duck’s boat.  Oh I wish I had a mailbox like Minnie’s.  And her kitchen is as cute as can be.  This is probably the last year I will be able to drag ds in here lol.

IMG_0767 On to the races!  The Tomorrowland Speedway is tons of fun…but kinda smelly and noisy.  Just keeping it real.

IMG_0773 Ha ha, we beat you!

IMG_0778 Buzz Lightyear’s ride is great.  Ds4 didn’t like it last time (remember the loud and dark rule) but this time he did great.

IMG_0780 Ds3 wanted to ride by himself.  My little guy is getting too big!

IMG_0782 Thankfully ds2 agreed to keep dh company.

IMG_0783 We hit the Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor and the big boys went on the Stitch ride and then we hit our favorite lunch spot in Magic Kingdom…Starlight Cafe.  We love listening to Cosmic Ray while we eat.

IMG_0785 They have a great variety of food, from rotisserie chicken to soup, sandwich and salad, to burgers and hot dogs.  A little of everything.

IMG_0792 Dh and the boys wanted to ride Big Thunder Mountain so ds4 and I hung out at the playground near Splash Mountain.  It was so funny…there were three grandmas there watching the kiddos and clapping and cheering every time someone came down the little slide.  They would learn the child’s name or just say “Yea for little pink shoes!”  The kids ate it up of course! :)


We went back to the hotel for our afternoon rest and found a towel butterfly on the freshly made bed.  How cute.  Ds4 grew quite attached to it and actually brought it home with him.  Sorry Pop Century, just add it to my bill.  And quit making such cute things.   Thank you.

IMG_0797 Pool time!  Oh it was a bright and sunny day and this pool didn’t have much shade.  Yes, we went through 2 whole tubes of sunscreen on this trip.  The kids couldn’t understand why we kept reapplying the stuff…”But I already went through this!”

IMG_0804 Ds4 and dh.  Too cute. 

IMG_0811 Ds2 launches ds3 in this one.  Ds3 has yet to get the hang of going under without holding his nose.  Hopefully we will work out that bug with this summer’s swim lessons.

IMG_0847 Oh no!  Eaten by a shark.  We visited Epcot again in the evening and ds and I had more fun at the Living Seas.

IMG_0861 Outside Minnie’s butterfly garden ds2 and ds4 decorate some planters for seeds the volunteer’s were giving away.

Another beautiful day filled with magical moments.  Our most relaxing vacation yet.  Wish I was there right now.


  1. Oooooh...how wonderful! I missed Disneyland. My last trip was way in 2000. Time for another visit...sooon! Have you been to Legoland?!

  2. Looks like you all had a fantastic time! I haven't been to Disney land for many years but we hope to bring our boys soon.

  3. We went to Disney in 2006 and we had a blast! We liked the Buzz Lightyear ride-it was the first one we went on.


Thanks for stopping by!
