Day 1 at Disney

We left early Monday morning to go to Disney. After getting checked in to our Hotel we checked the grounds out. They have a very nice play area and nice pools. We then went to the Magic Kindgom for a few hours. Had lunch there and rode a few rides and then went back to our room for awhile. Below is Stephanie, (Tanek's mom) Tanek, and meme Anita waiting for the Disney bus to take us to the Kingdom.

One of the first character's we saw was Pluto who is Tanek's favorite of all the characters.

The Disney bus which is one of Tanek's favorite rides. He loves the Disney bus.

At the hotel we took Tanek to the kiddy pool. He loved it and just had a good time splashing around and making new friends. He doesn't meet a stranger

This pool was only about a foot to 18" deep and perfect for little kids to play in.

Drying off with mommy after a fun afternoon.
After dinner we went back to the Kingdom and rode all the rides that he wanted to ride during the parade. We were able to get on everything he wanted to ride and then watch the fireworks which were great. Stephanie will post some of those when she has time. Her camera can get good shots of them and they were quite pretty. Here we are riding on Dumbo which is probably his favorite ride.

Then it was back to the hotel for the night. Tanek fell asleep on the bus and here he is down for the night. He was tired. We all were.

This was the end of the first day. Lots of fun.

The weather was quite warm (hot) but there was a breeze blowing and mostly we did the parks in the late afternoon/evening. It was really nice because Stephanie had made all the arrangements and it went so smoothly. We had the meal plan and it was great. We didn't even have to use any fast passes, we just timed our rides when most of the people were doing other things. I will post the 2nd day tomorrow.

Whitney, I am so glad you spelled Dumbo. When I posted last night I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to spell it. Another senior moment. :)
