Well, we just got back from a long weekend there, and I'm already planning our second trip.
(Seriously. Who am I? How did this happen?)

We started our visit with breakfast with the Princessess in Epcot. Cinderella, Snow White, Princess Aurora, Belle, and Ariel posed for pictures, signed autographs, and led the kids around in a royal processional. It was a perfect way to kick off the magic of the weekend.
After some time in Future World, we went back to Epcot's World Showcase for the Phineas and Ferb secret mission. Oh my goodness, that was the best scavenger hunt ever! It was not easy, but totally entertaining. You go to a Secret Agent Recruiting Station, sign up to receive your Field Operative Notification Equipment (F.O.N.E.) and embark on your mission. We had to find Agent P and thwart Dr. Doofenshmirtz's plan to use his evil Precipator-inator on unsuspecting golfers. I don't want to spoil it, but if you go to Epcot, be sure to play this game. It is hilarious!

Magic Kingdom was our plan for the second day. I am so prone to motion sickness that I won't even ride carousels. Add my persistent fear of heights to the mix, and I am no good on rides. It's been a long time since I last rode a roller coaster, though, so I gave it a try. Twice.
Those are the last two roller coasters I'll ride for another two decades, thank you very much. My kids, on the other hand, are all ride fanatics. Terza even stood with purpose under those minimum height sticks to make sure she gained admittance to the rides. I sure am glad their father likes rides.
We closed out our second day with a ride on the Monorail over to the Polynesian for the Spirit of Aloha luau dinner show, which was super fun. Plus, how can you resist the fire-thrower?
|No, thank you. You kids have fun!|
Hollywood Studios was our last park. The kids would have loved to do the Jedi training, but the slots were taken by the time we got there. Next time! The biggest thing Prima talked about before the trip was the Tower of Terror. Even though Terza was tall enough, we decided she was not old enough to handle the terror part. So I took her to the Beauty and the Beast show while the rest of the fam rode that ridiculous ride.
