We are in the homestretch. Just 10 more days til we head to Christmas in Disney World. As we are preparing for the fun here, just a few more highlights of our trip in 2006 for your enjoyment.....
As the kids were 5 & 4 when we last went, we did not spend as much time in Epcot as we would have liked. There is a ton to do there that we hope to take advantage of this trip. We enjoyed all the different countries that are represented in the World Showcase. At each one, the kids made a craft that attached to their passport. I hear at Christmas time, each country has storytellers and demonstrations on how they celebrate Christmas. Should be fun.
One of our favorite rides of the whole trip was there, Soarin'. It is an amazing ride that simulates a hang gliding over California, complete with the sounds and smells of the beaches, evergreen forests, and orange groves. My kids still talk about it! Here is a cheesy stock photo I found online of it:
And the last of the 4 parks at Disney World is Disney's Hollywood Studios. It is a fun park to see lots of great characters, ride Movie-themed rides, and go behind the scenes of several of your favorite movies. It is a fun park for all ages.
In 2006, Cars had just been released, so my kids were so very excited to "meet" both Lightening McQueen and Mater. Love it!
Matt was also picked out of the crowd to re-enact a "Pearl-Harbor" type movie for the crowd. He did a great job with the over-acting bit!!
And one of the kids favorite spots is the "Honey I Shrunk the Kids" playgroud. Totally out-dated, as my kids have never even heard of this movie, but who wouldn't want to slide down a roll of film ("What's film, mom?")?
We are counting down the days here.......thanks for reminiscing with us!
