Disney Extravaganza: Day 1.

Our airplane left at 6 am (kill me now), so I had to get up at 2:45 am to get myself and everyone else ready and out the door.  I tried going to sleep around 10 pm, but ended up not falling asleep until 2:00 am. Forty-five minutes later, my alarm went off.  I simply can not sleep if I know I have to get up at an unimaginable hour.

Levi, though, was all smiles!  He was SO excited for his very first plane ride and of course, to get to our ultimate destination.  I wish I looked that cute and bubbly at 3:45 am.


They did so well on the flight.  Ezra slept in our laps most of the way and Levi was just enamored with the whole flying situation.  


As soon as we arrived to our resort and hopped off the Magical Express, they greeted us with "First Time" buttons for the kiddos, and then Levi received a Birthday Button upon checking in.  He had buttons all over!


After settling into our hotel, we headed over to Downtown Disney for an evening of fun.



And fun it was!  Downtown Disney is a fun place with lots of amazing shops and restaurants and other fun things to do.  We checked out many shops and the boys insisted on having these hats.  And they were completely obsessed with them.


Levi and Maxwell loved this golden lady statue and could have interacted with her all day long.



The Disney fun was just beginning for all of us, and it we were all so excited.



We had reservations that evening at T Rex, which is basically a dinosaur version of the Rainforest Cafe or Planet Hollywood.  The boys loved it.  It's a lot of fun!


Somehow this is the only picture we got of Levi in the restaurant.  And it's by the lamest dino there.  Ha!

Our dessert was off the charts and the boys freaked out!


And so did Uncle Luke. ;)


It was a great beginning to our grand adventure.

After dinner we all went back to our rooms to CRASH before the fun began early the next morning!

I am a modern day homemaker with a passion for family, cooking, celebrating, decorating, travel, and memory making! The Lord has blessed me with the desires of my heart in my husband and our two sons. We recently built our dream home and cultivating a loving and happy haven for my family is where I find so much joy.


  1. I'm loving your recaps. Saving these all for later!! :)

  2. Loving this! We had almost the same first day as y'all! We drove in, went to Downtown Disney, ate at T-Rex, talked to the gold people! Ha!

  3. Hey you're all wearing matching outfits, you, Husby and your sons! What a fun idea when you're out as a family! Or was it a coincidence? Ha! Loving these Disney posts, by the way :) I wish I could go right now!

  4. That dessert looks incredible!! I could go for one right now :) yum!

  5. That looks like a blast! We honeymooned in Disney 2 years ago and have been dying to go back ever since!

  6. Whitney! This is so neat!!! Andy and I said that we would wait until the kids were WAY older before we took on Disney, but this post makes me want to go now!!! I love the hotel, and I would totally stay in those Finding Nemo rooms!!! I can't wait to read the rest of your posts! Thanks for sharing all of this! I'll have to dog ear it for when we finally go! :)

  7. Absolutely way too much fun! I can't wait until my husband and I finally get to go. With or without kids.
