Disney Trip 2016

We recently took a trip to Disney World and we had a blast! When we went last year, it was Tim’s very first time to go and experience all of the magic that Disney has! Ever since we left Disney World in 2015 he has been wanting to go back and so we quickly started planning when we would go again and saving all of our Disney Rewards. Tim’s mom, stepdad, and sister were able to go with us this time and it was his stepdad and sister’s first time to go to Disney World.

Although Cam is still too young to remember his first 2 trips to Disney World we will remember his trips and how his face lit up seeing all of his favorite characters and watching the wonderful parades. During our last trip we didn’t get to watch the parades due to riding rides or not being in the park while they were going on, but this time we were able to catch a daytime and nighttime parade and Cam absolutely LOVED them! He got so excited to see the characters he knew!

Cam also rode a few rides last time but this time he rode a lot of rides that he was big enough for in Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom. We would walk by a ride and he would start saying, “Ride! Ride! Ride!” We rode the tea cups, carousel, Dumbo, Magic Carpets, and It’s a Small World with him. I think there might have been a few more he rode but some of the ones he rode multiple times due to no waiting times and fast passes!

During our day in Magic Kingdom we obviously wore Cam out before lunch because as we were waiting to order our food at Be Our Guest he fell asleep and slept through our entire lunch in my arms. Speaking of Be Our Guest…this was something that was on my bucket list. 🙂 I tried and tried to get us reservations to eat there last time but wasn’t able to get them. BUT this time as soon as I could make reservations for restaurants I made them for Be Our Guest. Beauty and the Beast has always been one of my all-time favorite Disney movies and I wanted to eat in the castle! It was a great experience and great food! It was a definitely a dream come true/wish fulfilled!

Another wish fulfilled for me was getting to satisfy my pregnancy cravings with multiple Dole whips! You guys…Dole whips are heavenly! I haven’t met anyone that has had one that hasn’t liked them!

The night after our day at Magic Kingdom was quite eventful and resulted with about 2 hours of sleep for me. We had a family suite that had multiple rooms for all of us to sleep. We put Cam to bed as normal in our room and about 2 hours later I hear “Momma, Momma! Momma, Momma!” coming from our room. I walk in the bedroom to Cam laying in the middle of the bed with vomit covering and surrounding my sweet little boy! {Sidenote: Cam has only thrown up one other time and it was in the car as I was driving down the road.}

Tim was in the shower and Cam was still half asleep and not crying about the situation at all. As Tim’s mom started stripping the bed, I take Cam to the bathroom and strip him and put him in the shower with Tim to wash him off and wash his hair. (This was quite an experience!)

We get new sheets on the bed and pillows and Cam continues to throw up every 30 minutes to 1 hour throughout the night until 5 AM. It was a rough night to say the least, but we made the best of it.

The next day was our Animal Kingdom day. We had already paid for tickets and had reservations for meals so I sent everyone else to Animal Kingdom until I knew for sure Cam could hold down food and wasn’t feeling too bad to ride in the stroller. We (Cam and I) joined everyone else around 10 AM that day after he had another bath, ate some breakfast, and had some gatorade to rehydrate him.

Cam was a little puny that day as he later had other stomach issues happen to him in the middle of meeting Mickey Mouse. (Yikes!)

Our (Cam & I)  favorite part of that day was our safari ride and seeing all of the animals! Tim really enjoyed the roller coaster, Expedition Everest, from Animal Kingdom. We ate at Rainforest Cafe that night, which was one of our favorites from our last trip and Cam liked seeing all the “ah-ah”s (monkeys) when the rain would come in the restaurant.

Well, that about sums up our trip..other than the fact that everyone else got the stomach bug Cam had except Tim and his mom as we traveled home. (Lucky them!) Even with sickness going on we had an awesome time!

Until next time…
