    We are HERE. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY

    We got here today. We started driving on Friday... good thing too since we ended up getting snow and sleet and everything friday night and through saturday morning. so I'm glad we missed that, we had amazing driving weather.

    We are in a "generic" room tonight and then we check into our disney Old Key West resort tomorrow morning for the rest of the week.

    First thing we did tonight was head over to Downtown Disney. Ate dinner at a place called "Earl of sandwich" OMG the most AMAZING sandwiches. delicious and affordable. We got three sandwiches, 2 fruit cups and two drinks for $22. That's pretty darn reasonable lol especially for on property at disney.

    We got most of our souvenirs out of the way. hannah picked a stuffed minnie that is dressed like a princess (she has probably 8 or 9 different stuffed minnies lol and she plays with every single one every single day) and a pair of silver sparkly minnie ears. I got a throw blanket with Cinderella's castle on it and a pair of black and red sequin minnie ears. Brian didn't get himself anything yet though and we have a few small things to get for some special people.

    Tomorrow we are off to Magic Kingdom

    Our Arrival

    This is Cecelia (sp?). We were there getting our Annual Passes activated and the whole time this girl chatted with Hannah and gave her stickers and kept her completely entertained and she was amazing. hannah adored her. She is going in the letter as a special mention.... we always write one and mention the employees who went above and beyond to enhance the magic of our trip

    Thanks everyone. I know, I can't believe how quickly she is growing up. I remember when we just called her "peanut" because we didn't even know if we were having a boy or girl and now look at her. hard to believe she had that rough start right after she was born but it obviously didn't have any long term effects on her lol

    Zoom... isn't it crazy? our last trip was only a few months ago but you're right... she already looks (and ACTS) more grown up just since that trip lol

    and she's such a little social butterfly so everyone here is fawning all over her all the time lol

    I love taking the trip with you on here.

    I think Hannah will be ready for a job at Disney when she's grown up; maybe even as the new princess!

    Today was Magic Kingdom day :) Hannah is the best kid, I swear. She was awake at 6:45 this morning. We were at the park by 9:20 (after check in at the resort). came back to the room for a couple hours and went swimming (she didn't take a nap this time) and then back to MK. we didn't get back to the room until 10 tonight. that is a LOOOOOOOONG day and I know she was tired but even so, she did not have one single meltdown the entire day. She was chipper and cheerful the whole time.

    We had some pixie dust moments today. Tonight when we went to ride the Tomorrowland Speedway we got a pleasant surprise. As we were entering the que, the castmember said he had a surprise for us and moved us to the front of the line. Then tonight on the bus ride back to the resort the bus driver said to listen for a special announcement. the announcement came on and said "Thank you for riding disney transportation. Please be on your best royal behavior. We have a Disney princess travelling with us today" and he stood up and bowed to Hannah lol. very cute.

    We also met some amazing people today. that's one of the things I love most about Disney. no one is a stranger. everyone talks to everyone like you're old friends lol

    without further ado... photos

    Daisy was the first character we met today

    This was adorable. snow white was coming out for a meet and greet in a few minutes so we were waiting where she was going to be with one other family and the cast member that was there. He played some trivia games with the kids and entertained everyone until snow white came out. When she did, Hannah and this other little girl couldn't contain themselves and both ran right up to her lol so we have a few photos with an extra child hahaha

    At some point the Princesses are going to start remembering Hannah, LOL. I'm pretty sure I recognize the Snow White from your last trip.

    And the shot of you and Hannah on the teacups is *excellent*. She and you are in focus while everything else gives the impression of motion. Good job!

    Oh yeah... I thought she was into it on the last trip in September but she was REALLY into it today. When they did the Wishes Fireworks show tonight she was on Brians shoulders and she was "conducting" the fireworks lol. We had been chatting with a nice older gentleman named Jack... he was there solo because his wife was working and after the fireworks he said to Brian "I wish you could have seen her face during that.

    LOL yeah I think sooner or later it's going to be like "Cheers" When she walks in everyone's going to be like "HANNAHHHHHH" LOL

    it's getting to the point now where the photopass guy for Snow white walked up and I said "Alex... I remember you. you were our photographer for Snow white in September... AND for the castle photo" lol it's like we are old buddies now :rofl1:

    I think you should really look into your idea of being a Disney Travel Arranger. You certainly know enough about the place!
