Disney Delights

We spent last week in Disney World with Auntie Lisa and Uncle Chuck and Nonna and Nonno.
We got to trick or treat at Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party and get a quick visit with the Child family who were also on vacation down there too! A side trip to Universal Studios was even squeezed in so that we could check out the new Harry Potter attraction. We did a lot of stuff and even though the kids aren't big into rides we managed to get them on some. Soarin' and Toy Story Mania were two favorites that we did twice.
There was a tremendous amount of walking and waiting and late nights but the kids were real troopers and handled most of it well. There were a few grumbles now and then but no major meltdowns. Considering how far out of their element they were with the crowds, noise and constantly being on the go I am proud at how well they did.
We stayed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge in a room with a view of all kinds of animals. Here is a picture of the girls looking at a roan antelope from our balcony.

Here is the lobby of the hotel. I never took a picture of our room but it was a pretty basic hotel room with an african theme. I also didn't get a picture of the pool, but it was nice and we spent most afternoons in it for a couple of hours before dinner. Despite all the wonders of the parks the hotel pool was definitely one of the highlights of the trip.
