DISNEY WORLD - Day One (Saturday)

Y'all were so excited (and ME TOO) to see pictures that I couldn't wait another day to share with you all the fun we are having!!! Here we go.

Saturday was a great day. It started at 5:30 AM (that is not a typo) when we left for the airport. This was Ella's very first plane ride, so we had been pumping her up all week for this. She LOVES to watch the planes, so it take much to get her excited.

This is dada showing Ella the plane we are about to board.

Ella had so much fun on the plane with Aunt Ashley and Aunt Cathy, who don't spoil her one little bit.

She did great thanks to movies and Ava's famous airplane backpack full of fun stuff. She was so sleepy the whole flight and fighting her sleep. She finally gave up and fell asleep on me during the landing and slept all the way through getting our luggage and rental car. Blessing #1!!

Thankfully the plane was not full, so Ella and I got our own row to relax in. I got her all set up for her Cinderella movie.

On the way to our condo, we decided to go ahead and swing by Dinsey World to pick up our tickets. When we got there, the lady said for just $4 we could upgrade our tickets from a 5 day hopper pass to a 7 day hopper pass! How could we pass that up? So we did it, quickly went to the condo to unload our stuff. Ran to the store for groceries and then headed to Disney's Hollywood Studios so we could see Fantasmic.

Ella and Dada are waiting for Fantasmic to start, the greatest show ever.

Mama and Ella waiting for Fantasmic to start.

Heath's mom and sisters.

This was the perfect way for Heath's family to see Disney and all of it's greatness for the first time. They could not believe how amazing it was!
I didn't get many pictures of our first day, but I got plenty of them to make up for it in the following days. I can't wait to share.
It was the pefect night. We even fit in one ride...Tower of Terror. How great is that ride? So great!
