The house that Walt built

To say we had a great time is an understatement.  It was truly magical.  I took over 800 photos...and have almost 300 on Disney Photopass.  A brief rundown and some highlights:

Saturday - Lexi's first plane ride.  She did AWESOME!  Loved looking out the window!  Went to Downtown Disney.
Sunday - SeaWorld!  Loved the Shamu show and was afraid to pet the dolphins...but rode the Journey to Atlantis!
Monday - Hollywood Studios - She loved the Star Wars ride the most.  Lunch at Hollywood and Vine to meet June, Oso, Handy Manny and Jake!
Tuesday - Epcot - Soarin was the big hit, followed by Test Track.  Dinner at Akershus to meet Belle, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel and Snow White!
Wednesday - Magic Kingdom - We hit all of FantasyLand and watched the Electric Parade.  Lexi got to turn the park lights off in prep for the parade! Truly a once in a lifetime opportunity!  Dinner at Crystal Palace to meet Piglet, Pooh, Tigger and Eeyore.
Thursday - Animal Kingdom - Very upset she got wet on the Kali River Rapids...but loved the Kilimanjaro Safari!  Chosen at Festival of the Lion King to be the Lion leader.  Dinner at Ohana.
Friday - Back to the Magic Kingdom...hit the rest of the lands...dinner at Chef Mickey's to meet Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy.  Then back to Magic Kingdom to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween courtesy of my Guest Relations cousin!

To watch the wonderment and awe in Lexi's face was truly the most spectacular thing. 

One other quick story...when we told Lexi she was going to WDW, we told her TinkerBell invited her.  So when she met Tink on Friday, she said "Thank you for inviting me" which Tink replied, "Well Alexis, it's about time you got here!".  Lexi was amazed that Tink knew her name (she was wearing a necklace with her name on it) and couldn't believe that Tink KNEW HER!  It's all she talked about the rest of the day.

I'll post photos on FaceBook.  If you're not friends with me on FB...comment here and let me know and I'll send you my full name to friend me!
