So I may have gone a little over our vacation budget this year. After many years of consideration, I finally splurged on tickets to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. It was worth it! Lucky for us kids 3 and under are free to the party and all the Disney Parks and Hotels, so why not take advantage while we can, right? Ok, I’ll stop trying to talk myself out of the guilt now.
Ms. Rylie insisted she be a pirate, but she refused to wear her pirate hat. Oh well, still cute.
You just can’t beat trick-or-treating at The Magic Kingdom, and they don’t cheap out on the candy. My favorite stop was the Werther’s Originals shop. Caramel candy with apple filling… count me in!
After the Hallow-wishes fireworks, we closed out the night with a Monsters Inc. Dance Party where Rylie proceeded to strip down to her tights. She had enough of that darn tutu, it was time to party!
This was my first fall visit to Disney World. The weather was so perfect, not a drop of rain until the day we left, warm but not too hot during the day and chilly evenings made for the most perfect trip. I can’t wait to go back!
See ya real soon!
Our feet are sore, our eyes tired and our wallets empty, but we had the absolute BEST vacation of all time. There is entirely too much to share after a full week at Disney World, so I’ll tackle these memories one day at a time, beginning with our day at The Animal Kingdom, one of Rylies’ favorites. A girl after my own heart.
Welcome to Harambe… we danced, rode a truck through the savannah and ate lunch with Donald, Mickey and Goofy. We never even made it to the other half of the park.
If you ever visit Disney’s Animal Kingdom, you HAVE to have a character lunch at the Tusker House. While the lighting is terrible for character photos, it’s probably the best buffet meal you can get pretty much anywhere.
She LOVES a good parade!
Despite the fact that we missed so much, the day couldn’t be more perfect. If Rylie could spend every day dancing and watching parades, she’d be the happiest kid on the planet.
Despite her lack of enthusiasm, I can assure you this kid is a thrill seeker! I was excited to find this new little treasure right in the heart of Phoenix. Enchanted Island at Encanto Park. We’ve been cooped up inside for far too long this summer and Rylie and I are ready to get out and be adventurous. With the cooler weather coming, my guess is that we’ll be spending a lot of time at this fun park geared toward littles of (mostly) her size. We just need a few more inches to get on the “dinosaur” (AKA dragon roller coaster).I think this is a good first step toward the fun we’ll be having next month on her first trip to Disney.
By the end of the night, her hands were in the air… unprompted
