Jonathan & Russell's Disney Vacation

May 23-26, 2003

These 3 pages contain the pictures we took during their 3 days at Disney. All the pictures are clickable to enlarge.

We started our trip into Disney, being really excited and looking at all the cool Disney signs.  We loved the Mickey electric pole, the big entrance sign, but Jonathan was disappointed that Pooh wasn't on the entrance sign.  Then we saw Naomi's favorite sign, the Flik and Stink Bug sign, we decided it was our favorite as well.  Then we saw the Disney busses, we thought they were really cool.  We can hardly wait to ride on one.

 We started our visit with a monorail ride From the Grand Floridian to the Contemporary Resort.  For our first ride in the monorail, we got really lucky and got to ride in the front car.  We got excited when we saw the castle, the train and train station.  The monorail goes right into the the Contemporary, which was really cool.  Then we rode the escalators to Chef Mickey's for dinner.  The escalators were probably the favorite ride of the weekend. We got to meet Donald Duck, Goofy, Minnie, Mickey, Chip & Dale at dinner. Donald was our first character to see, we were excited but didn't know who he was.  Dinner was fun, getting pictures and autographs, singing and spinning our napkins with Minnie Mouse.  Russell really liked Minnie Mouse.

Followed by the Electric water light show.  We watched the light show from the Grand Floridian docks.  Then we went and looked at boats and then off to see where Naomi worked.  Then it was time to head home.  We were really tired and had a long day ahead of us in the morning.  We got ready for bed, with no fussing and right to sleep.  We are great at taking bathes and brushing our teeth and going to bed!!!  :)  We are night time angels.  :)

The next morning we started at Magic Kingdom. First we watched a show in front of the Castle and then we met Pluto.  Then we went on the People Mover Ride.  This was fun, because we got to see allot of stuff, from way up high and got to see the Space Mountain ride.   Got off the ride and went to met Buzz Lightyear. We had a Mickey ice cream while waiting to meet Buzz.  This was very exciting.  Jonathan was so excited he had a hard time talking to him, but finally did.  We got pictures with him and his autograph. Then it was off the  Buzz LightYear ride, go-carts, then Teacups. Go Carts were a favorite, this was ride the boys picked out and they got to drive the cars.  We really enjoyed them. We then went to Toon-town and rode on Goofy's Barn Stormer Roller Coaster. We were really lucky here, we got to see Goofy and his son Max at the roller coaster and they gave us Goofy stickers.  We went to Minnie Mouses house and played in her kitchen.  Then we found Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore and Tigger, got pictures and  autographs from them. We then moved over to Country Bear Jamboree, It's a Small World, Peter Pan, Haunted House, Tiki birds and Pirates of the Caribbean then took the Ferry toward Epcot.  We did not like the Haunted House, but we really loved Country Bears, Peter Pan and Small World.  Jonathan who at the beginning of the vacation, told us he didn't like boats, LOVED the ferry ride!!!!
