A Day In My Life - Disney World

This week "Gussy Sews" inspiration prompt was A Day In The Life. I know I did one of these recently about my time at home with the kids. I thought I would change it up and give you a picture of how we spent our Saturday at Disney World.

6:30 am - Our two lovely children begin to rustle and make us aware that it is time to start the day.
7:15 am - Go downstairs in our hotel for breakfast. It is a continental breakfast, but this does not stop Goerge from taking an hour to eat one piece of peanut butter toast and one donut.

8:15 am - In our car and on our way to park at the Pop Century Hotel. It has the quickest bus to Hollywood Studios, which is where we are spending our day.
9:00 am - Arrive at the park and head in. Tim runs to the Toy Story ride to get fast passes because they are always the first to run out.
9:15 am - We are in line to meet Donald and Daisy. We get their autographs and give hugs before moving on.

Side Note: Buy an autograph book before you go. I figured those puppies were going to be expensive, so I bought George a little notebook from Party City with Mickey Mouse on the front. The book was perfect for George, and the price was perfect for Mommy - Win, win!
9:30 am - Get our picture with Mater and Lightning McQueen - vroom, vroom.

9:45 am - Mommy gets in line to wait for Phineas and Ferb, while Daddy takes the boys to the "Honey I Shrunk the Kids" playground.

10:00 am - We are second in line to meet, hug, and get autographs from Phineas and Ferb. It was our first time meeting these characters in the flesh, so it was an exciting morning.

10:30 am - Disney Junior show with Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Little Einsteins, and Jake & the Neverland Pirates. Lots of dancing and laughs were had by all.

11:00 am - Went in the imagination studio, so George could meet Mickey, Winnie the Pooh, and Mr. Incredible. Mommy and Ethan stayed in the foyer area of the air conditioned (THANK GOD!) building, so Ethan could nap and Mommy could read.

Noon - Daddy and George went to get lunch and bring it back to the air conditioned room. Side Note: The best lunch in Hollywood Studios is at Min & Bill's Dockside Diner. The chicken ceasar sandwich is super delish. Most quick service food at Disney isn't the best, but you will thank me if you ever have a chance to get your hands on one of these.
12:30 pm - We wake Ethan up to go to the first "American Idol" show of the day. It is Mommy's favorite. It did not disappoint.
1:30 pm - We use our fast passes to go on the Toy story ride. It is so much fun, even though Daddy got the highest score.

2:15 pm - We leave the park to go back to the hotel for a nap.
2:45 pm - We get back to the hotel and a fire alarm is pulled. We have to wait for the sirens to go off before laying down to sleep.

5:45 pm - We all get up and head out for dinner.
6:30 pm - We eat dinner in Downtown Disney at "Earl of Sandwich." It is super yummy.
7:30 pm - We are back at Hollywood Studios to do a few things we missed in the am.

8:00 pm - George and I ride Star Wars, and Ethan and Daddy go watch The Muppets show.
9:00 pm - We all ride "The Great Movie Ride."
9:30 pm - We take the kids to "Rockin' Rollercoaster." The employee at the entrance lets us go in the single rider, fast pass lane, so we can go one at a time while the other waits with the kids. It was so fast and so fun.
10:15 pm - We go in the huge amphitheater to wait for "Fantasmic" to start. We have never seen this show before and were pleasantly surprised. It had fireworks and everything.

11:00 pm - Show is over, so we begin our long trek to the bus.
12:00 am - We finally get back to our room and all hit the sack for the night:)

Wow, that was a long day:) The next morning we had breakfast with some characters, so I will leave you a picture of the whole Bettelli family.
