Disney World 2009

We spent 10 days on our Disney World Adventure. We had a great time because we were there long enough to experience everything without running ourselves ragged. This is the first Disney vacation where we haven't gotten up early and stayed til closing every night.
Kaden, Makaela, Deedee, Saige, Ashley, Tanner, Jeena, and Carson at the Tree of Life in Animal Kingdom celebrating Kaden's 9th Birthday.
Lots of fun Halloween Decorations to celebrate the season. So fun.
Kaden is getting ready to snorkle for his first time ever at Typhoon Lagoon. "It kind of freaked me out," he commented.
The Jedi's of course could not resist the light up swords at EPCOT and turned them into light sabers.
One of my favorite parts of the trip was playing "Stage Mom" for my niece Ashley who tried out for the American Idol Experience at Disney Studios. She made the auditions for the show. It was a blast.
Carson and Tyler waiting in line for the chair lift at Blizzard Beach Water Park.
Not even the rain stopped this crew. They grabbed their ponchos, took off their shoes, ran through inches of water to get in some good rides. Flooding = no lines at the Magic Kingdom. Deedee, Steve, and I got stuck in the Pirates of the Caribbean gift shop for an hour because we didn't want to get soaked.
Typhoon Lagoon was probably one of our favorite parks. We went there twice and enjoyed all the slides and sand, but we LOVED the huge wave pool. The Thunder would crash and you knew the typhoon was coming. The ocean would swell and we all spent hours trying to body surf.

Saige and Carson loved the kid size section of the water park because they could carry their own tubes and do all the rides themselves.
