We also thouroughly enjoyed our Disney activities, this trip! Although we didn’t do Disneyworld the way we normally do, we did get our Disney Fix! A few highlights.
- TRex Lunch: We had an amazing lunch the day we arrived, at TRex! C and C didn’t fly in until later that day, and we had 3-4 hours to spare before our home rental check-in; this turned out to be a great time filler – fun & good food!
2. Pirates and Pals Cruise: We took our family of four on a Pirates and Pals cruise to see the Wishes Nighttime Fireworks show, from Magic Kingdom, over the water! We arrived at the Contemporary Resort, were checked in and given a scavenger hunt, had pictures with Captain Hook and Smee, and enjoyed unlimited snacks, drinks, cake, and more! We then proceeded to our boat where we had a great Pirate entertaining us; we saw the Water Electrical “parade”, and then watched the amazing Fireworks with audio from the performance. I LOVE IT! It ended with all the kiddos getting a free “prize” (FREE? At Disney?! YES!), and pictures with Peter Pan!
We also were able to visit the Kennedy Space Center and NASA headquarters! I was on CLOUD NINE! I dreamed of being an astronaut growing up, and went to the Johnson Space Center when I was in middle school – so this was a long time coming.
I was such a joy to see the kids more excited than I thought they would be, esspecially Max. It was a very educational day – and they did great.
We had lunch with an astronaut, Ken Cameron. We also upgraded to the Up Close Launch Control Center tour – which was well worth it. Seeing Atlantis, and the Landing sites, were truly a dream! I can’t wait to go back for a launch someday.
