It's a Magical Place...for about 4 Hours

I'm one of those aunts.

The one that buys matching Mickey Mouse T-shirts for her four adorable nephews to be worn on our family vacation to Disney World.

I didn't get one for nephew/niece #5, so we improvised. (Note the Mickey Mouse sticker on my sister's pregnant belly.)

We had a great morning at Magic Kingdom...moved right through the line at the Dumbo ride...



...as well as the Pooh Bear ride, the Tea Cups and the Laugh Floor - the Monsters, Inc. comedy show.

Monsters, Inc. is probably my favorite Disney movie! We had front row seats and my favorite was when the little monster came out and did the jokes from the kids in the audience! The interaction was adorable.

We didn't wait more than 20 minutes for any of the rides and only used the FastPass system twice (if you don't know about FastPass and are headed to Disney, learn more - it's a life-saver). Some of the favorite rides of the day were Buzz Lightyear, Space Mountain, Pirates of the Carribbean and Splash Mountain.

The nephews REALLY liked the gift shop after the Pirates ride...


In the end, we were all hot, sweaty, exhausted and a little cranky...


...but it has been great to do this as a family!

And it's really all about family at the end of the day.

The smiles...


...and the bonds we are strengthening.


Now, if I can just resist buying them all matching hats...


  1. Don't resist - just buy them! They are only little for a short time, and they won't wear matching anything when the are bigger...doesn't matter how cool their Aunt Meg is!

  2. I agree!! Buy them!! You are blogging abt this to make me jealous, aren't you?? You look like you're having a blast! :)

  3. I concur... hats for everyone! Glad you are having fun!!

  4. You are making me jealous too. I so wish we were at Disney, but I have to agree with everyone and say buy the hats for everyone. That's what Aunts are for.

  5. The t-shirts are adorable! As are the boys. Looks like you all had a great vacation!

  6. You've got a really great blog here!
