Maggie Makes Four!

This journal started off documenting the adoption of our youngest daughter. It now follows the twist and turns of our lives as we raise these two amazing little creatures into the best women they can become.

Disney World Adventures

It's Mother's Day and while there is much to be done to recover from our vacation, I'm having a slow morning.  So, rather than do laundry--doesn't it seem wrong to do laundry on Mother's Day? I thought I'd give a brief run down of our Disney Adventure.

Days Spent at Disney World:  7
Days Spent Traveling: 2
Parks Visited:  4
Number of Condos/Hotels:  2 (Lake Buena Vista Resort Condos and Wilderness Lodge) 
Favorite Park (Girls Vote):  Hollywood Studios
Reason:  American Idol Experience and High School Musical 3
Favorite Park (Adults Vote):  Epcot
Reason:  Alcohol readily available 
Average Temperature:  92 degrees
Average Humidity:  We have no idea, but a lot higher than California.  
Number of Times we got lost:  5 (we only drove 4 days) 
Number of Character Signatures Gathered:  34
Best Character (LN):  Pocohontas and Meeko
Best Character (M):  Mickey and Minnie Mouse
Most Unusual Characters Found:  Tinkerbell, Jiminy Cricket
Favorite Ride (LN & M):  Kali River Rapids in Animal Kingdom
Best Thing We Saw (M):  Epcot Golf Ball
Best Thing We Saw (LN): Characters
Best Thing We Saw (Adults):  We kind of thought the White Rhinos at Animal Kingdom were cool, but what do we know?
Best Nighttime Fireworks:  Epcot's Illuminations
Best Parade:  Nightime Spectacular at Magic Kingdom    
Best Swimming Pool:  Pool at Disney's Wilderness Lodge
Child who whined the most:  La Nina  (She has the potential to make a man perfectly miserable some day.)
Child who ate the least:  Magster
Number of chicken nuggets consumed by Magster:  56 (I don't think she ate anything else)
Best food:  Didn't exist.  However, it was much easier to find decent salads, fruits and vegetables than I remember in Disneyland.
Number of blisters:  1 (On La Nina who refused to follow my shoe advice, even after the blister.)
Number of Stuffed Animal Souvenirs Purchased:  7

Overall assessment Disneyland v. Disney World:  I'm very glad we did Disney World, the girls were the perfect ages for it and we had a great time.  At the same time, I don't know that we'll go back.  It's a long trip.  While it's fun and different from Disneyland, I'd rather go other places and do long weekends at Disneyland.  It should be noted the girls do not agree.

    Your girls are beautiful! We have two lovely girls from China ourselves-we live in Orlando and go to Disney at least 2 times a month- it is more like going to a park- rather than a theme park.
    My girls are little- and right now - Mulan and Small World are favorites.
