We were up early because Cindy made 8:15 reservations at the Crystal Palace! The boys slept pretty well (after they finally went to sleep), so getting going wasn’t too awfully difficult. We were out the door about 7:30 and off to breakfast. We parked close enough to walk to the Magic Kingdom entrance where we activated our park-hopper passes. We rode the ferry into Disney…

and made a beeline for the Crystal Palace and breakfast…

After breakfast we started making our way around the park. We went on several rides, like “It’s a Small World” and saw a couple of shows, like “Mickey’s PhilharMagic” (in 3-D). Adam really liked the carousel…

We made it through Fantasyland and Frontierland, and the boys were ready for a nap (the telltale behavior thing), so we returned to the room for some quiet time. You’d think they’d be ready for a nap, but not these boys, they got a 2-minute power nap on the way back from the park, and were ready for more action. Still, we tried to put them down, hoping for a few minutes of rest ourselves. Alas, it wasn’t meant to be, and we were getting pretty hungry.

So, we were off to Disney Hollywood Studios for late-lunch-early-dinner at the Backlot, and the highlight of the trip for the boys, a chance to meet Woody and Buzz…

While waiting in line for the Toy Story stars, Cindy and Adam met “The Claw”…

Meeting Buzz and Woody

They loved meeting their favorite Toy Story stars. They just stood there staring up at them, then they ran to ’em and hugged their legs…

Buzz and Woody

We did a few other things at Disney Hollywood, like “The Little Mermaid” show, but in the end, it all paled in comparison to the Buzz and Woody experience!

No Christmas is complete without a visit to Peddler’s Village and Giggleberry Fair!

The kids enjoyed themselves on the carousel, well, Kameran enjoyed herself…

We got mixed reviews from the boys. Adam was skittish at first, but warmed-up to it by the end of the ride; Alex wasn’t into it much at all and needed to be cuddled…

Look: Alex is a conehead!

Kameran made a friend while at “the fair” and together they put on a darling little puppet show…

Adam thoroughly enjoyed driving the firetruck. The costume was, of course, mommy’s idea…alas, it’s “Fire Marshall Bill Adam”
