In October, we all took a little trip down to Orlando for several days of Disney fun to celebrate Spencer’s birthday! With many thanks to GJ and Daddo, we had some excellent perks and probably one of the very best trips ever! We flew down on Thursday morning and we were ready to go…
That afternoon we went into the park for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. It’s fun because they have trick-or-treating stations setup all over the parks and the crowds are smaller so you can ride more rides. Plus, lots of people dress up and the people watching is prime time!! ha!
Before we had left, I had measured Samantha and knew she was about 2 inches shy of being 44 inches…44 inches gets you on Space Mountain, Everest, and Avatar Flight of Passage. Knowing my daredevil roller coaster rider, I knew she’d be so disappointed if she barely missed the height cut off. So, I went out and found the tallest tennis shoes I could find – some Nike Air Max – and then also added a few Dr. Scholl’s gel inserts to the inside! She might have been walking on stilettos but…
She made it on Space Mountain! Woohoo! They measured her twice and she passed easily both times! Hooray!
Needless to say, she loved it! It was the boys first time to ride it too and it was a hit all around! We continued the day with as many of the good rides as we could get on including The Haunted Mansion, Barnstormer, and Big Thunder Mountain.
We stuck around for the parade and fireworks.
A great start to a great trip!
