Happy Halloween! Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party

 Some is excited for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party!

 Lucas dressed up for the party. Blake didn't want to. Too old I guess? Too cool is more like it. Lucas was a cowboy. We already had everything and I did not want to spend the money on another costume.

 I LOVE Captain Jack so he was the first person we got in line for. The boys love the Pirate's movies too. Paisley was not impressed. He told her he was going to steal her earrings?? Haha.

 I had to have my own picture made with him! Hehe. Hubby was rolling his eyes...

 Paisley wore the cutest little outfit. My mom ordered it for her birthday.

 While we waited for the parade to start Lucas met a friend and they provided some entertainment for the crowd.

 The headless horseman rides through to start the parade.

 This was by far our favorite parade of the entire trip. It is just great. The music and everything was wonderful!

 I love how there were so many characters out that are not out during normal hours. The villains were a favorite for us too.

 As soon as the parade ended we got a good spot for Hallowishes! Once again it was our favorite. We likes it better than any other fireworks. Amazing!

 This was my favorite part of our entire trip. Paisley is not the kind of baby to go to just anyone. She loved all of the characters on our trip (which surprised me in itself) but when she saw Cinderella it was amazing. She fell in love with her. She loved all over her and I am pretty sure that Cinderella loved it too. Just watching her lay her head on her and stare at her in amazement made my entire week. I think she thought she was for sure the most beautiful person she had ever met. The magic of Disney!! It pulled at my heart strings for sure.

 She gave her a kiss before we headed on to meet Snow White.

 For some reason she wouldn't go to her? The boys did though :)


 Lucas meeting his favorite Disney character. He loves Flynn Ryder (or Eugene).

 Paisley loved Rapunzel so much! Tangled is my go to movie for her when I need to keep her busy though. It is her absolute favorite movie. I have to say I am not complaining. I love it just as much as she does. Especially the lanterns scene.

Once we were done with Rapunzel we started to leave and when we were walking to the door Cinderella called Paisley's name and came running through everyone to hug her goodbye. I had tears in my eyes. Does that make me a freak?? HAHA.

Then we went back to the room. It was 11:30 and we were beat!

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Halloween!

Disney Day 7 (Last Day): Magic Kingdom

 Well this was it. We had been at Disney an entire week and this was our last day. I decided we should make the best of it. The first thing we did was something that Lucas had been asking to do all week long: we walked through the castle.

This is Main Street view when you are standing in the door way of the castle.

 I love the beautiful pictures on the inside. We also saw the Bippity Boppity Boutique and decided that it is a must for Paisley on our next visit.

 We headed for Fantasyland and the boys tried to pull the sword out of the stone. Neither succeeded.

 The boys decided to goof off after another ride on the Haunted Mansion.

We did a rider swap on Splash Mountain. Lucas would not ride so he decided to hang out on the bridge.

The guys checked out Buzz' Space Ranger Spin...

 I stayed behind with this little chick...

 Lucas met Chip and Dale...

 Paisley and her daddy at Cinderella's fountain.

 Love what the Florida weather does to her hair. Mine- not so much.

 We had a quick ride on the magic carpets... which she loved.

 We made sure to catch the Celebrate a Dream Come True parade. It was one of my favorites!

This was a great moment! HAHA!

 Paisley was in awe over Cinderella again. (You'll see what I am talking about in my MNSSHP post tomorrow. I've been saving it for Halloween).

 It started rainging a little right after the parade so we found some shelter for about twenty minutes and when it was just drizzling we headed to meet Tink. I made hubs and the boys wait for 45 minutes to meet her. If Paisley was going to be her for Halloween then she HAD to meet her, right??

 We also met Perriwinkle. I had no clue who she was but I am sure as Paisley gets bigger we will have these movies.

 I just LOVE this statue. I mean who knew that all of this would come from a mouse? :)

The Move it, Shake it, Celebrate it dance party came through. Right up Lucas' alley.

Told ya!

 We made a quick stop on the way out at the Main Street Bakery. I had been eyeing it all week. It did not disappoint.

The last photo from our trip. I was so sad to leave. Makes me even more excited to plan another trip though. Hopefully it will happen sooner than later! I could seriously live there. I look like a princess right? Maybe they would give me a job...

DIsney Day 6: Epcot

 We were up and ready to go to the only park we had not been to yet: Epcot. It was a shorter day for us. I think it was partly that it was our least favorite and partly because it was five hundred degrees. SO hot. The first thing we did was have a picture made of course.

 Then we ran to score some fast passes for Soarin'. It was one of the rides everyone told us was a must and it did not dissapoint.

 Mission Space on the other hand? Never again. I can handle rides, trust me, but this made me feel too closed in and sick to my stomach. Blake didn't even like it.

 Then we headed over to Nemo and Friends...

 Paisley loved it. We didn't get to go to Turtle Talk with Crush which makes me sad. Next trip we will make it for sure.

 Lucas and I were waiting on the others and this little fella was all over us. He jumped in the diaper bag and sat on Lucas' foot. Lucas of course loved it. I love how used to people all of the animals are there. The birds at the Magic Kingdom were another big hit.

 Just so happened that it was the first day of Food and Wine Festival.

 My kids had no idea who she was but I did so I made them go see her!

 I love the way Paisley is looking at her.

 The Beast was coming out too but we couldn't wait on him due to the fact that it was SOOO hot. It was wait for the Beast or go meet Jasmine and Aladdin.

 ... so we met Jasmine and Aladdin.

Paisley was waving to Jasmine until she was out of sight. She loves her princesses!

Next up: Magic Kingdom (I know... AGAIN).
