A while back I asked for any input anyone might have on our upcoming trip to Disney. Got some great advice.
The trip went better then I ever could have anticipated. I bought "extra-strength" headphones that my son initially used all the time. By the end of the trip, they rarely left the backpack.
It started out a little rough. I had asked the service captain at the character break fast to have the characters stay back from our table...he had gotten to two out of the three characters....but Donald was too fast for him! Came walking up and my little guy just threw right up! Donald's reaction was priceless and I wish I had have had it caught on video...anyways, that was the first day...last day, we all had a picture with Donald!
My son, who does not go down regular slides, initiated trips down the water slide (on a tube, the small one at Typhone lagoon and the large Family raft). He also went down the big White Water Rapid ride at Animal Kingdom....again, he initiated the request.
We had a great time on the Monorail, Tom Sawyer's Island, Hollywood studios, Epcot, and Animal Kingdom. Although I loved it, the Magic Kingdom was really too busy/big for my little guy,
He enjoyed the pool, and splashed independently...NO DEATH GRIP!!!
While we say at the dinner table, he would draw pictures of his day (!!!!!) and we could not get over how absolutely connected he was with us. It was absolutely amazing!
Happy Dancing at Disney!!
