We had a wonderful day of firsts as we took off on our first trip to Disney. We stayed at a hotel next to the airport the night before our flight and the kids were so full of excitement watching the airplanes come in knowing they would have their first ride the next day that they were literally jumping for joy! Collin looked like a little kangaroo he was so excited and jumping all over the place. I think the airplane/airport was just as magical for him as Disney World was.
The boys were so happy about their matching airplane shirts.
My four sweet babies!
Suckers are out, we're ready to fly!
The girls' row.
Our little airplane lover couldn't wait for the plane to take off!
He even studied our aircraft....
The plane had a lot of empty seats so we spread out a little bit and Eva really enjoyed getting to sit by herself some.
Grandma and Benjamin doing what they love, playing games together.
There are few things sweeter than a baby hug!
Eva was getting restless near the end of the ride and was very interested in the kids' suckers. So we gave it a try. It ended up being a big mess as she liked playing with it, but I think she enjoyed her first sucker.
After our magical plane ride, we made it to Magical Kingdom!!!
This was the first time the kids saw any characters and they were in such awe.
Collin didn't hesitate to run up for a close-up view!
After doing some fun rides all together, Benjamin went with Daddy and Grandpa for his first roller coaster ride....Space Mountain! I thought they were crazy for taking him on it, but he ended up loving it! While they were having their fun, we took the other kids to the new Dumbo area where they have a big top full of things to climb on and play with and Anna & Collin had a lot of fun.
Then we rode Dumbo!
Then it was time for a very magical moment....Collin got to meet his beloved Goofy. He has loved him since he was one and used to call him Da-dog. It was so cute seeing him meet Goofy. You could see the awe and love and joy all over his face!
They enjoyed one more snuggle. I told Goofy that he was Collin's favorite and he made a heart on his chest and pointed to Collin to tell him he was Goofy's favorite too and then he pulled Collin onto his lap to show he was going to keep him. It was a very magical moment for our little monkey!
Then we met a feisty Donald.
Afterwards, I let the kids pick out their Mickey ear hats and got their names on them. They also got to meet Tigger and Pooh and enjoyed several more fun rides and shows and then we finished the night off with an amazing firework show. It was a wonderful, magical first day!
