The trip was exhausting, which I total expected. The entire place is like a well oiled machine which makes the trip so much easier. The meal plans, transportation, Fast Passes, etc. are all there to make the trip more enjoyable. We went to Magic Kingdom for 2 1/2 days, and Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios one day each. We rode a lot of rides, got signatures from a bunch of characters, he did Jedi training, he wiped out big time and got a goose egg on his forehead, ate at some cool places with characters, swam, and I had to reign him in during all of it. He was crazy! His listening was less than good which made me completely crazy (and I know it made our friends bonkers), but sometimes it's hard to reel him in amongst all of the stimulation and excitement.
But is it magical??? Sure... if you are a kid or one of those crazy adult Disney fanatics.
I was so worried we'd get sick right before or during our vacation. I was wrong. We got sick right afterwards. I have what I'm pretty sure is influenza. I'm now on day five and feel a little better today than any other day. Along with my cough, runny nose, and sneezing, my body has been so achy, and no matter what kids of meds I take, nothing took away the achy muscles and joints. I've had to sleep with a heating pad on my legs because I have been in so much pain. I seriously don't know the last time I have been so sick.
Then on Tuesday, I got a call from school that Sidekick had a fever, so he has a much milder version of what I have. His fever finally broke last night, but he's home again today. I'm hoping that the fever stays away so he can at least go to school tomorrow. We've had a little too much bonding time over the past almost two weeks. Haha.
Here are some pics from our vacation:
