A Magical Time

Disney was just wonderful! The children were very surprised by our trip, and that made it all the more fun! We went to all Magic Kingdom most of the time and spent a little time at Epcot and Hollywood Studios. It was perfect! I am exhausted & will have to finish unpacking and doing laundry tomorrow!

I have 2 quick tips:
If you must buy a kid's meal at the Quick Service restaurants, one of the drink options is bottled water. Order it. Also ask for tap water for your entire group. Put the bottled water in a zippered cooler bag and save it for later. If you have a stroller or backpack, you will want to bring a small zippered cooler bag for drinks. We used ours for small bottled waters and the Capri Sun waters and Honest Kids lemonade. The children drank at least 2 a day each because of the heat!

We saw an entire family or groups of families eating at the Backlot (Quick service) at Hollywood Studios. They literally brought a loaf of bread, peanut butter, and tuna fish with them and made sandwiches right there at the table at the back of the restaurant. They used the mayo, mustard, and relish as needed from the restaurant. I thought this was so smart. They had fun Cheezits and Little Debbie peanut butter bars too, along with grapes and apples. I think we'll try this on one of our day trips, but I will have to buy a fountain Diet Coke as a splurge!

Good night!

Not only is the food there rediculously expensive, but it's not good and, at least what's available at the park, is so bad for you! Or you could walk around with one of those bad boy turkey drumsticks! ;)

I loved these photos! What a fun trip you all had. That is so smart to order the bottled water and save it as well to to bring your own cooler. It is easy to go broke at a park to bringing what you can is a must!

Great idea! We are going to WDW in May and I will use your water bottle trick. Thanks.
