|Judges Tent - January 2011|
And again, we make great memories, take fun pictures, and enjoy spending time together. All the while, Noah eats, sleeps, and plays for free.
Except with the water play at Disney's Animal Kingdom. He had so much fun and that video is still one of my favorite home movies to watch! He wasn't scared of anything, but still just observed instead of actively being involved in the trip. And again, nothing stood out - he didn't have any specific memories or ask to meet any specific characters.
At 25 months, the trip changed a little.
1st - Fear. Peter Pan's Flight we heard the word "scared" for the first time.
- Meeting Winnie the Pooh (just Pooh - none of the other characters and we met several of them!) was problematic. He clung to me and refused to go near him!
2nd - Memories - He remembers. He rode Dumbo the first day (and last day it was open before it closed to be renovated and moved to Storybook Circus) and loved it. He kept asking to ride Dumbo again and then remembered "Dumbo broken"
3rd - Interactive - He willingly walked up with open arms to give Pluto a hug! He loved Pluto. He found Pluto a few times and those pictures and memories are fantastic!
**Also - he was so excited to see and ride on the Walt Disney World Railroad - and even enjoyed saying "All Aboard" over the intercom! What an experience for a 2 year old!!
4th - He asks to go back! Now that we're home, he asks to watch "Good Morning" (the Magic Kingdom Rope Drop show) and says "I want to go there!"
- When we see a water tower, he says "Epcot" and a tall building (usually a big fancy church) I hear "Disney"
I can't wait to see what 3 brings - other than park ticket fees!
