Son Two loved walking around Be Our Guest restaurant and getting lots of double-takes, and when he got to Enchanted Tales wth Belle, he was taken in completely. The armoire and Lumiere animatronics were engrossing, and he knew them well. We didn’t get a part in the play- although the attraction has enough parts for all kids who want one- but he sat in the back and smiled the whole time.
Then we got to meet Belle, who couldn’t believe he’d come in dressed like Gaston! I assured her I thought it was just a phase.
Once the little fellow figured out what was going on, he showed off his biceps - all that block stacking adds definition.
Camping in June at Disney proved “it’s not the heat, it’s the humidity.” The campsite was clean, shaded, and even a little secluded from the others nearby, and while we would have liked a little A/C after walking those Disney miles, we were only a little uncomfortable in the afternoons.
Our home away from home
It felt particularly neat after the first night, to wake up in the woods before heading to Animal Kingdom.
To get out of the heat, we showered in the afternoons before a nap. One glamping trick that I tried was using some Cetaphil and baby wipes to refresh in the evenings after walking. It really worked, keeping us comfy all night.
The only hiccup occurred on the third day. We needed to wash our sheets, but the laundry card readers were down at the comfort stations. We continued on with our day, heading to Disney Springs, where even a Lego-hater like me could appreciate the huge sculptures. As long as I didn't have to open fifty plastic bags and help.
In the evening, remembering our technical difficulties, my husband and I bought some beach towels after visiting with the grandparents. We spread those over our trail mattresses and made due; not terrible, and we had an excuse to get some cute new towels. The site was a nice place to get away, and we will be back!
Went straight from our Floridian adventure to a camp out with our scouting friends. We’re getting pretty good at this! It was nice to have the slower atmosphere of Cedars of Lebanon, with a great shelter and lots of rocks to try to turn into axes. We only had a few chances to use our hammock in Fort Wilderness, but on Saturday, it was a harder ticket to get than Splash Mountain.
Homemade Father's Day was not in the cards this year, but Son One found a neat retro Rescue Rangers mug for my husband. Remember them?
