Domenic visits the Mouse House...
I've been dying to take D to Magic Kingdom since before he was born. I have that rare adult love (disorder?) for all things Disney. It was magic when I was a kid and it's blow-your-mind magic when you get to see it again through your child's eyes! We didn't get to stay long, Domenic is still very little. Keeping up with his napping and eating schedule (the entire fridge every hour) is... tough. Luckily Grandpa wanted to come along so I had help :) Thank goodness for Grandpa. He never complains and actually encourages me to bring my camera so that I can play too.
Had to start out with the infamous "tourists at Cinderella Castle" photo:
Gotta love that "RaRaw" (Domenic's name for his beloved Grandpa).
I think I shed a tear on the very first ride... Small World! His little face and the pointing. Such wonder as he had never seen anything like it before!
We tried to do the Winnie the Pooh ride and he was pretty excited after Small World but it broke right when we got on. Cute picture taking area right outside of the exit though ;)
I thought the carousel would be a safe bet but it's actually quite scary. I didn't like the one strap hold the baby deal and neither did he haha...
Swiss Family Tree House was completely packed, single file. Terrible idea to take your slow, I want to do it myself, Toddler. Excellent photo adventure if you don't mind being THAT person and holding up the line...
One of my all time favorite rides, the people movers!!! D did not like it when it went completely black. I lit his face with a camera phone and he looked very wide eyed!!
I think he was happy to leave this one:
I had one photo in mind when I went, the tea cups. He is just like me, loves to spin around and around.
Had to have Mickey Mouse ice cream! It's just downright undisney if you don't! :P
He was falling asleep in his stroller at this point so we took the tram back to the car. Suddenly the sky opened and it FL monsooned all the way back. We were drenched. Yay for water proof lined diaper bags. My camera was bone dry! and so were the diapers...
I was worried that bringing my camera would be a pain to keep up with or not allow me to be in the moment with Domenic but at the end of the day, I get to share the experience with family and friends and have these memories forever. <3
