So it was super hard to not post about this, but we took Kylie to Disney World this summer. Why not post about it? Well, Matt was interviewing down there, and we couldn't exactly broadcast that. They flew us all down there, and we decided it was a good chance to go to Disney! Now that Matt has accepted a new job, there is no need to keep it to ourselves anymore :)
In the hotel, getting ready to head to Magic Kingdom. Kylie's face is as if she is saying "Pics later, Disney princesses now."
Me pinning Kylie's 1st Visit pin on her!
On the ferry to go to the Magic Kingdom....she made a friend and was telling him that she was going to see princesses!
Meeting the princesses was definitely full of memories to treasure! It was a mix of therapy...trying to interact with these new people. They were princesses so it made it a tad less stressful....she loved it!
Yay for making eye contact with someone new!
Woohoo...letting Belle hold her hands!
Trying to give Cinderella a hug!
Yay..she did it! A bit unsure, but who cares :)
Letting Cinderella hold her tight...this is seriously making me cry...she did great!
Haha..this is blurry, but she was totally not having the Mickey ears on her head...love this face!
Shortly after meeting the princesses, we found some mice to hug! Kylie was uneasy about the whole hug thing, but she knew it was just something you do when you're at Disney!
Hmm...where to go next?
I SOOOO Love how Kylie reached out to Snow White!
Happy tears for us!
Let the talking begin...
...look at those pretty pink toes!
My favorite part....Snow White touched Kylie's nose and then Kylie did it right back! Holy cow...such awesome interaction with someone new! Okay, so Snow White is a well-known princess, but still....it was absolutely incredible to see this!
Our hotel was just 15 minutes or so away from Disney, so we decided to go back and rest for a bit. Once we were rested up we went back to the park. So below is part 2 of our visit.
A pic of all 3 of us with the Disney Castle in the background
I got a clip of Kylie and Matt on the Dumbo ride. See if you can spot them!
We traded off with another family taking pics of one another on Dumbo
We were planning on heading back to some more attractions, until we saw people already camping out early for the Electrical Parade. We thought we would find a spot too and stay late for the parade and the fireworks too. I am so glad we did, because just look at the joy on Kylie's face:
I just love how her face it just lit up with amazement!
Totally crying as I see this pic...she was so surprised and loved everything she saw!
Now I know why they say this is the place where dreams come true!
This was on the plane on our way back...Kylie let Matt put earphones in ear her ears...such a huge thing for her!
It was an amazing experience that we will never forget. Kylie still talks about going to the Disney Castle, seeing the princesses, Tinkerbell flying down from the castle, and many many more memories. Loved the experience and all the memories we created in such a truly magical place!
