As we went through security, one of the TSA agents asked Malia if she had a driver's license. When she said no, he informed her that she wouldn't be allowed to go. His solution? She should stay and work in his place while he went to Disney. When she said no, he offered her $20 a day plus a big bag of candy. She still said no. So then he offered her $40 a day and 2 big bags of candy, but nope! She was determined to get to Disney World!
We arrived in Orlando late Wednesday afternoon, and visited Downtown Disney that night.
This picture is a little blurry, but I love how it shows Malia's excitement as she hurried from one display to the next looking for the perfect items to spend her money on!
Later that night, I found this note in her drawer of clothing. It says, "This is the time of my life!"
Thursday morning, we headed to Epcot.
Epcot was hosting the International Food and Wine Festival, which was really cool. There was food available from countries all over the world.
Malia absolutley LOVED meeting the characters and getting their autographs, as you can see:
Her two favorite rides at Epcot were Mission Space and Test Track.
We also had fun visiting all of the countries in the World Showcase.
We had met a Disney cast member at our hotel that morning, and he told us to go to City Hall at the Magic Kingdom and get a special badge for Malia since it was her first time at Disney. He then asked when her birthday was, and when she told him it was in June, he said, "Ah, close enough. Ask them for a birthday badge, too." So the lady at City Hall gave Malia 2 badges and some stickers.
Malia's favorite rides at the Magic Kingdom were Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, and Space Mountain (all the fast ones seem to have "mountain" in the title!)
Playing in the "honey" as we waited for the Winnie The Pooh ride:
Malia loved how everyone called her "Princess" all day, and she even got sprinkled with pixie dust!
Anyway, we're back to real life now.....
