A Disney December, Part One
On December 17th, we picked the kids up at school and headed to the Nashville airport for our flight to Orlando.  We booked this cruise on the Disney Dream in July 2011, so we had been looking forward to the trip for quite a while!  The kids knew we would be cruising, but as we left, we added a surprise by giving them tickets to the Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party at the Magic Kingdom. We told them we would not be going straight to the port, but instead we would enjoy some time in WDW before sailing away. Of course, this announcement led to large smiles and squeals of delight.

On December 18th, we woke up at the Embassy Suites near the airport ready for a fun day at WDW.


We picked up a rental car and headed to Downtown Disney for lunch, shopping and fun. The kids always love to see the Lego displays, and we spent some time browsing at the World of Disney store.  Emily bought her first souvenir, a Mickey mood bracelet.


Earl of Sandwich was the choice for lunch.  They have a dessert called a brownie sandwich that is one of the kids' favorite snacks in all of WDW.  Sitting under the Downtown Disney Christmas tree was the perfect place for them to enjoy their treats.


After lunch, Andrew and Emily had fun playing with some of the model cars from the Ridemakerz store, and then we stopped for a visit with the big man of the season.

 

We left Downtown Disney and headed to the All-Star Sports Resort, which was decked out in its Christmas finery.  This is Andrew's favorite place to stay, and he was thrilled that our request for the Touchdown section was granted.


After settling in and relaxing for a few minutes, we boarded a bus bound for the Magic Kingdom.  It was time for the party!
