My humans came home! They got home last night around 11:30. The little biped was fast asleep in the car. Dad carried her in and they put her pajamas on without her even waking up. We haven't seen that happen since before her first birthday (she'll be 3 in May), so we could really tell they must have had a very long week in DisneyWorld. We were all very excited they were home, but knowing the little biped was in need of her sleep we tried to be reserved in our excitement.
Last Saturday, they rode in an airplane from Baltimore to Cincinnati, then they rode in another from Cincinnati to Orlando. They got to Orlando and went to the resort.
On Sunday, they went to Disney's Animal Kingdom and saw a bunch of animals. There was a 3D movie about bugs based on Bug's Life the little biped thought was a little scary. And they had breakfast with Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Goofy and Mickey Mouse. Later in the day, they met Minnie Mouse, Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore and Tigger.
On Monday, they had breakfast with Minnie Mouse, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Pluto and Goofy. Pluto is Mickey's dog and they apparently saw a lot of him while they were gone. Later, they went shopping at Downtown Disney. Nothing was bought for us.
Tuesday, they travelled the world at Epcot and the day included meeting all of the same characters again as well as lunch with Chip and Dale (they're chipmunks and they sound tasty), Pluto and Mickey Mouse. The little biped fell asleep in her stroller and missed meeting Snow White and Dopey, but later they had dinner with several princesses: Aurora, Cinderella (the little biped's favorite princess), Ariel, Belle and Jasmine. After dinner, a long walk through several countries included meeting Aladdin and finally getting to have her picture taken with Pooh, Eeyore and Tigger in England at the same store that she first met them when she was in Mommy's belly. There is a picture of this meeting on her bedroom wall and she often says "I in Mommy's belly when I meet Pooh Bear."
Wednesday was spent at the pool, but ended with dinner and dancing with Cinderella, Prince Charming, the step-mother and step-sisters at the Grand Floridian. We're told that dinner was excellent and included prime rib and salmon (of course there was no doggy bag for us).
On Thursday and Friday, they visited Magic Kingdom and met Captain Hook, Mr. Smee, Peter Pan, Wendy, Buzz, Woody, Jessie, Stitch, Darby, and many Disney characters that they had already met earlier in the week. They went on lots of rides, ate really good food, and got nothing for us. Mom even got to see her favorite Disney character, Captain Jack Sparrow, at a pirate tutorial. (this guy was good, you would have thought it was Johnny Depp himself!)Unfortunately, he doesn't do pictures or autographs which terribly disappointed Mom.
Saturday, they were supposed to be home by 7pm, but didn't get home until really late. There was a flight cancellation and then they took a bump in exchange for first class the whole way home and credit towards future travel. They've spent most of the day planning their next vacation to use these flight credits and we've been hearing a lot about what there is to do in DisneyLand. I hope that maybe they will bring double souvenirs for us from that trip since there were none from this one.
Woo woo, Kelsey Ann
