Last Day in Florida, Flying to Michigan

It's our last day in Florida. :(
After cleaning up the house, all of us headed into Disney Springs. Our flights out tonight aren't until 6pm, so we've got most of the day ahead of us.

Epcot and Closing out the Magic Kingdom

After going to see Turtle Talk with Crush, it was time to start winding down our day at Epcot.

Epcot and Le Celier

After spending the morning at the Animal Kingdom, we were all meeting up with the rest of the family at Epcot. Been a long morning for Ian already apparently though.

Animal Kingdom

After a relaxing day at the rental house yesterday, today it was time to head back into the parks. First up is the Animal Kingdom! We had the best intentions to be there at park opening but it was hard to get moving, and we go there almost an hour after opening. I'd hoped to go on Kilimanjaro Safaris first, but without a Fastpass, and the line showing an 80 minute standby time already, that wasn't happening. Instead, we were one of the first in line for the Wilderness Express train back to Rafiki's Planet Watch.

Monday chilling at the house in Florida and Disney Springs

It's really nice to have a whole house to ourselves. For those days off, we can swim in the backyard pool, sunbathe, and just take it nice and slow.

Sunday at Walt Disney World - Part 3

When we last left our group, Ian and I were rushing from a ride on Goofy's Barn Stormer and trying to meet up with the rest of our group. We're all doing character dining at the Crystal Palace!

Sunday at Walt Disney World - Part 2

After getting Ian's first hair cut this morning at the Harmony Barbershop on Main Street, it was time to start going on rides! Why yes, we can squeeze 8 people into a People Mover car.

Ian gets his first haircut... at Harmony Barbershop at Walt Disney World!

Well at this point there's no denying it. This boy needs a haircut.
He's over 3 years old and hasn't ever had a haircut. About 6 months ago Theresa and I were discussing it and I mentioned that because of our love of Disney it'd be fun if he could get his first haircut the Harmony Barbershop on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom. I called and made reservations back in January, and there you go, that's the reason for our trip.

Flying to Florida to visit Walt Disney World

The Flowers family is off on their next adventure! It's been nearly a year since we were at WDW and there's a specific reason we're headed back. We'll get into those reasons in more detail a little bit later.
Waiting for our plane, Ian said Mommy you can share my seat.

2017 Minnie's Moonlit Madness - An After Hours Scavenger Hunt around Disneyland

It's February which means that Minnie's Moonlit Madness is back at the Disneyland Resort! Once again, teams composed of Disney Cast Members competed in an after-hours scramble around the park to answer trivia questions and solve clues in their quest to take home top honors.

While I have been able to participate on a team in the past, in more recent years, I've had a lot of fun as a volunteer working the clues. Once again, one of the Clue Crew writers Craig offered to let me come participate again this year!

Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
This year in preparation for Valentine's Day, Theresa and I asked our families to send the kids Valentines in the mail. Both Ian and Alli had decorated shoeboxes to put them in as they came. Ian really loved decorating his shoebox.

Disneyland on Sunday

After getting all our chores and everything done earlier in the weekend, our Sunday was wide open. T and I planned on taking a long walk with the kids somewhere. Hmm, maybe the beach, or a local park... Well why not Disneyland? Yes we were just there a couple days ago. No reason we can't go again.
I had said earlier that Alli was really into ducks. When I was picking out hats this morning, she was loving this Donald Duck hat and looks so cute in it!

Rainy Friday at Disneyland

It's a cloudy Friday morning. Rain was forecasted earlier, but now it looks like it'll hold off until the afternoon. The perfect day to go to Disneyland!

Disneyland on Saturday

We love Disneyland so much that we end up going almost every week. It's been really busy lately so hopefully going early in the morning will help.
