After we went to Universal and nursed our sore feet, we spent three fun days at Disney! We decided to cut out Animal Kingdom since there was so much construction there, and we only had one park per day tickets. Magic Kingdom was fun and we were able to score extra fast passes (thanks Mom!) so we got to ride on all our favorites. The kids also got to ride double here with the baby swap as well.
The second day we went to Epcot. The younger ones were finally tall enough to make their own roller coasters and that was a lot of fun! My hubby and I snuck away for lunch at Le Cellier in Canada, our favorite restaurant there. It was nice to have a date alone. My parents were with the kids and of course, they all had a blast together as well. The baby napped and the kids enjoyed the Innovations. They redid Test Track and it is now our favorite ride at Epcot. You need to try it if you go there! It is so much fun!
The last day was spent at Hollywood Studios. Toy Story Mania is still a favorite ride and we ate at the 50’s Prime Time Diner. The Brown Derby is my personal favorite, but we didn’t have a date their this time because we wanted to stay together as a group, and the kids wanted to go to the 50’s diner! The younger ones tried the Rockin Roller Coaster (they hated it, the adults loved it!). We had a wonderful trip and can’t wait to go back! The kids will spend a few days this winter with their uncle at Universal/Islands of Adventure while Hubby, baby, and I go on a cruise to the Western Caribbean. The best part of our trip was that it was all paid for before we left home. Spending money budgeted for everyone, food money (including our date) set aside, even airport parking was budgeted. So when we arrived home we had nothing but fun memories of a wonderful vacation! No credit card bill hanging over our heads. I encourage you to try and vacation with cash saved up and no headache when you come home!!!
