We're at Disney World!

We've been at Disney World for about a week now, and we're having a great time. This past week was delightfully uncrowded; however the crowds got really heavy today. A cold has been making its way through our family, so we've been taking it pretty easy. Right now, Nick is sick. He has pretty bad asthma, so we have to let him rest a lot because he gets too sick when he moves around much.

So far, this is what we've done:

Monday, November 15
The kids and I did some shopping and got settled into our condo during the day while Chris worked. That night, we went to the Magic Kingdom and rode a few rides and then watched Wishes. Jonathan, in particular, loved the fireworks. He kept trying to touch them. Here are a few pictures from that day.

We went to Magic Kingdom this morning. We were able to ride quite a few rides due to the short lines. At about 11:30, we returned to our condo for lunch. We were planning to go to a park after supper, but Jacob was feeling sick, so we stayed in.

Wednesday, November 17
We went to Epcot this morning and had a fabulous time. Jacob really loves Test Track, and Nick had a great time on Mission: Space (he was too short last time we were here). Micah, Jonathan, and I had fun in the Living Seas while the older boys rode things Micah was too short for.

That evening, we went to Hollywood Studios. We did a few of the attractions. Tower of Terror was practically a walk-on, so Nick and Chris did that first thing. Nick loves the big rides, and he had a great time. We also ate supper, watched the Jedi Training Academy, and saw the Muppet 3D movie. Then we saw the Festival of the Dancing Lights.

We rode the Great Movie Ride on our way out. We were only there a little while, but we got a lot done.

I'll post again later. I do want to keep a record of this trip for my own sake so that I can remember what worked and what didn't work next time we come.
