Just like our dinner at Crystal Palace, they have everything timed to perfection. Once all the characters get through your table, they start a celebration and everyone swings their napkins around and all the kids parade around the restaurant. It is so fun!

I just love the look on Andrew's face here. Pure excitement and joy!
Lugging around his big purchase! Ha! He wouldn't put it down and he wanted to play with each figure one at a time.
We hopped on the monorail and rode around the resorts for a while. Andrew loved the monorail! We stopped off at the Grand Floridian resort to check out how the other half lives! Ha!
We'd never be able to afford to stay here, but we had fun visiting! It is a beautiful hotel.
They even have a white sand beach!
Ga Ga and Andrew relaxed in a hammock!
We finally made our way to Downtown Disney. They have lots of shopping and other fun things to see and do!
This is the largest Disney store in the world! And it is huge! I had to tell my mom and Craig to keep their phones turned up to make sure we could find each other because we were for sure going to get lost in there!
Pictures don't really do it justice either, but it was a beautiful store. Things hanging from the ceiling and all around you!
Peter Pan and Wendy were in one section of the store, flying around! (See Andrew looking up at them?)
We visited Legoland, where they have a giant dragon out front made of legos and it is actually in the water!
Woody made out of legos!
Andrew had fun riding the little train!
This was my favorite part of Downtown Disney! The store was called Once Upon a Toy and when you walk in you see this giant display of Mr. Potato Head stuff.
You could pick out a huge potato and fill it to the brim with pieces, or you could choose a box and fill it with pieces (this was the cheaper option). Andrew already has the giant potato storage container and several potatoes, so they let me just stuff a box with pieces and not get the potato (so I had more space to fill with pieces!) I was having so much fun! I picked out all kinds of pieces and they were all Disney themed- they had Dumbo ears, Donald Duck's beak and hat, Peter Pan's hat, a Mickey balloon, Mickey ears, Buzz feet and tons more! I just went crazy!
This is where all the boats dock coming from the resorts. You could take a boat to and from our resort, but it closed down this day due to the weather. I guess if there is a storm within a 20 mile radius they close down! It actually happens a lot in Florida!
This place was really cool. We didn't know what it was at first, but it was a big restaurant like the Rainforest Cafe, only it was all dinosaur themed (they have a Rainforest Cafe, too!)
There was a huge T-Rex right when you walked in!
Andrew was so excited about this giant Mammoth! He is obsessed with all the Ice Age movies, and he loves the Mammoth the most.
We had a great day! We were sad to see Ga Ga leave, but the Disney part of our vacation was coming to an end. My best childhood friend lives in Florida with her husband and son, so we were excited to get to stay with them for a few more days. She came and picked us up at Downtown Disney and took us to her house, where more fun adventures began! They have a pool and Andrew just had a blast. Plenty more adventures to come... check back soon!
