Back Home


We spent six days in Walt Disney World after Thanksgiving. We stayed on the concierge level of the Wilderness Lodge which was totally worth it. They have a snack area where you find plenty of food and drink to get you through the day. We would have one meal in the parks and the rest at the snack area.

Our room was awesome: we could see Cinderella's castle from our balcony, which meant we had a great view of the nightly fireworks. The trip to the Magic Kingdom by boat was very quick. We took buses to the other parks.

Tina's family met us there and we toured the parks together. Xander's favorite rides were the Buzz Lightyear ride and the Star Wars ride (at Disney Studios). Duncan's favorite was It's a Small World. Another highlight of the trip was meeting all our favorite characters like the Power Rangers, the Incredibles, Buzz Lightyear, and Kim Possible and Ron Stoppable (not to mention Mickey, Pluto, and friends).

Xander is excited!
