this is my final post wrapping up our walt disney world extravaganza. for me it is always helpful to have lists when planning so i thought i would make some to share! i hope the tips, tricks and “hit list” are helpful! please feel free to write in the comments of the post if you have any questions!
one other trick i thought i would mention relates to the “i want!” scenarios that you are bound to encounter… here is what we did and it worked. the kids will inevitably see many toys, treats, and more that they will want… alexa has a serious case of “i want” right now. whenever she saw something she wanted we would tell her that at the end of the day she will get to pick out one toy as long as she behaves all day. for some miraculous reason, that totally worked. (honestly, by the end of the day so much had happened that she normally forgot about anything she had wanted!)
also, one more tip: according to the people at disney, the best times of the year to go are september/october because most kids are in school. take advantage of the fact your little ones don’t “have” to be in school during the week… plus fall weather in orlando is great. another wonderful time to go is the first two weeks of december–you skip the thanksgiving rush and you avoid the christmas/new years rush. plus, what could be more magical than disney completely decorated for christmas?!
these are all the attractions/experiences that we did while we were in walt disney world. there are many more that i would add to the list that are preschool appropriate but it is hard to fit in everything so make your priority/wish list before arriving at the park and hit your main ones first. you could honestly spend an entire day in new fantasy land in magic kingdom!
as a final close i had to share these amazing flashbacks to my childhood and my trips to walt disney world. my mom sent these to me while we where there and they brought tears to my eyes.
years worth of memories… i know it is bittersweet for my mom to see these… we all grew up so fast it seems. i guess i will feel the same way looking back at these photos some day. so thankful my mom captured all of these moments (love you mama, xo).
