We left early Thursday morning. The kids were so excited to go to the airport and ride on an airplane. It was Ben's first plane ride, and as a little boy who loves airplanes, we knew he would be pumped.
We had snacks and coloring books and of course electronics (seriously, what did we do before them?!) to keep the kids entertained. We rented Cars on my Kindle and Ben watched that for the 924th time.
And then I witnessed perhaps the cutest thing I've ever seen: Ben showing his ducky the view out the window.
Overall the kids were great travelers! We arrived in Orlando and hopped on Mickey's Magical Express. If you're staying on Disney property, they provide free transportation to your hotel, as well as baggage service (after you check your bags at your departure airline, you won't see them again until they're delivered to your room-a nice perk).
We stayed at the Art of Animation in a Cars suite. We knew it would be perfect for Ben as he's so into everything Cars right now, and Avery too by proxy.
The kids got to run through Radiator Springs on Route 66 and see all the Cars characters in real life.
We checked out our room and headed over to Magic Kingdom for the rest of the afternoon.
First things first: Dole Pineapple Whip!
Our first ride was Aladdin's Magic Carpets.
We rode as many rides as we could and headed over to meet Tinker Bell.
We then popped in to meet Minnie and Daisy.
Ben loved Minnie. He hugged her, rubbed noses with her, gave her a high five, tried to pull out her tongue, and laughed and jumped up and down. It was nothing short of adorable.
Cinderella Castle looks so pretty at night!
We were able to see part of the Wishes nighttime show. It was so neat, but we headed back to the bus station before it was over to try to avoid the massive crowds.
The kids were tired after a long day and needed to rest for another long day of fun!
