Orlando - Day 3 {Disney World}

Happy Wednesday friends!  This week I'm sharing all about our Orlando trip.  To read about day 1 click HERE and for day 2 click HERE.

It was so hard waking up early and getting everyone going Saturday morning because we had already had two jam packed days, but the promise of Disney got us all moving.  We enjoyed a quick breakfast buffet and the girls loved checking out all of the fancy food.  Little Mama was super impressed with the coconut bowl full of fresh fruit.


We took the shuttle over to Disney and were ready to start our fun there.  Unfortunately, because of being tried and just being a 3 year old, it wasn't off to a good start for Boo-Boo.  He was having a meltdown already (before we even arrived at the park) so we were really worried how our day would go.  Thankfully, after basically forcing him on the first ride, he suddenly changed his tune and realized exactly how much fun he would be having at Disney.


This was our first time visiting since the new Fast Pass system has been in place and I was a little nervous that I wouldn't be able to figure it out, but with the My Disney Experience app on my phone it made it so simple to get our Fast Passes and plan our day.  For those that don't know, basically you can select 3 rides or attractions to get a "Fast Pass" for each day.  You are assigned a specific hour time frame to visit that ride and you get to go in a special line that bypasses all of the other people waiting. It is totally free and totally worth taking advantage of.  We only waited about 10 minutes at most with the Fast Passes.  We planned them for later in the afternoon when we knew lines would be longest and then in the morning we just rode as many rides as we could before the park got really crowded with longer lines.

The kids all loved the race cars at Tomorrowland Speedway and the fact that they got to drive.  Boo-Boo couldn't even seen over the steering wheel so he spent most of the time looking out the side to know where to go, but loved every second of it!



We had to be back for the Braves game by late afternoon so for our last ride of the day, we made our way over to the Buzz Lightyear ride and had a few minutes before our Fast Pass began.  We decided to grab some popcorn and let the kids eat and have a break in the shade for little bit. (Side note- We went though more popcorn during the two days we were at Disney than I though was humanly possible.  My kids love popcorn and it as the perfect snack to grab and go as we made our way to the next ride.)  It was so hot while we were there (almost 90 degrees) so the break in the shade was welcomed by all of us.  While the kids were snacking I happened to look over and see Buzz himself, taking pictures with kids, and the line wasn't too long.  I pushed our stroller right over and we all hopped in line.  Boo-Boo is in LOVE with Buzz and was so excited to meet him in person.


Right after that we made our way to the Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin ride.  All of the kids loved it!  Basically you use your laser to shoot the aliens and earn points.  It was so much fun and as soon as we were done the kids all wanted to go on the ride again.




After our last ride we made the trek back to the front of the park to catch our shuttle back to the hotel.  We were all exhausted from the heat and all of the walking and needed a quick break back at the hotel before we made our way to the Braves game that evening.  I have lots to share about that, so it's going to have to wait until tomorrow!  Check back then to read about the rest of our day!

    1. Cory- You just made me laugh out loud. :-) No, he does not, although that would be really cool. The company he works for is one of the sponsors of the Braves this year, so that is why we were on the trip.
