Disney World Vacation Day 5

Our last full day in Florida was spent at the beach at Jetty Park.

Harp and I ate breakfast while Daddy caught up on some sleep.
 You know it's been an exhausting couple of days when she falls asleep at like 10 in the morning!
 The beach was beautful!
We went to bed early in order to return the rental car by 6AM. We got back home to Lubbock after a LONG time on 1 plane that made multiple stops.

We had such a fun time and can't wait to go back in a few years!

Disney World Vacation Day 4

Day 3 started at Hollywood Studios

 Green Army Man!
 Ate lunch at Pizza Planet!

 The back lot tour was really cool!
 She even got to meet Mike and Sully! Anytime she talks about meeting them she said, "Their hands are too big" because they weren't able to autograph her book. :)

 Our plan was to go to Downtown Disney from here, hang out, and eat dinner. Well, Harper fell asleep on the monorail, so we drove to the hotel, and Michael and I took turns going up into our hotel room to shower and change while the other stayed in the car while Harper slept. We ate at Ragland Road Irish Pub at Downtown Disney, and it was GOOD (and expensive). Harper slept the ENTIRE time.
 After dinner, we drove back to Magic Kingdom for the electric parade and fireworks. It was amazing.

 This was it. This was the moment every since dollar was worth it. The days we spent exhausted and sweating ridiculously, this was the moment it all led up to.
It was bittersweet leaving after the fireworks. Part of me didn't want to leave, but the other 95% of me was about to fall over from exhaustion. We finally made it back to the hotel around 1AM.

Day 2 started back at Magic Kingdom
 Our first stop was to meet her favorite princess, Snow White.

Walking up to her

Harper was in complete awe!

Big Thunder Mountain!
 Goofy :)
 Riding Dumbo with Daddy
 Merida! (wardrobe change in line)

We headed to Animal Kingdom in the late afternoon. It was SO hot this day! We rode the safari and met Donald then decided the heat was too much and headed back to the hotel.
How do people spend 5+ days at Disney! We were exhausted!

Disney World Vacation Day 2

We woke up VERY early to make sure we made it to breakfast before the bus left for Magic Kingdom
 Mickey Mouse waffles? YES!
 On the bus to the park! EEEKKK!
 On the ferry, and she sees the castle!! Pure joy on that face.
 Waiting for the gates to open
 Watching Harper take in the view was a memory I will never forget.
Our first stop was to meet a few princesses.

 Walking up to Cinderella :)


We went on a few rides and checked out Pooh's house.

 The Sword in the Stone

 Walking up to the Be Our Guest restaurant. The food was amazing!
 We ate inside the Beast's castle in the ballroom!

After spending the morning and lunch at Magic Kingdom, we headed to Epcot. Harper fell asleep on the monorail, so she and I hung out inside Innovations while Michael rode rides until she woke up.

 Minnie was very impressed my Harper's dress ;)

We had a great first day! We were all ready to get in bed though. :)
