It started by Mr. M asking if J would like to meet Mickey, when he was considering joining us for a long weekend. Obviously, this was before deciding to hit Vegas with his boss for the NCAA Championship games. Anyway, once the idea was introduced, it became a daily question:
"When I go see Grandma & Grandpa P*, I will meet Minnie, right?"
So how could I not take him?
Thankfully Grandma & Grandpa were up to the task.
not necessarily in this order
We took a ferry ride.
We raced cars. Grandpa braved J's driving!
We flew on Dumbo. That is after waiting an hour to ride him...
We danced with Chip & Dale. But we would not go meet them.
We met MICKEY & MINNIE.
J even kissed Minnie. How happy was my boy?
We did The Small World.
Took a break for pizza.
Did the Pirates of the Caribbean, although J spent most of this ride in my shirt.
We saw the parade. His face doesn't show it, but he was so totally fascinated by the parade & kept telling us all the people he saw.
After going all day, we crashed.
While we walked back over to the cars to grab a McQueen ears hat for J, he totally crashed out on my dad's shoulder. I ended up having to go to 3 stores before I found a baseball style McQueen hat, and J slept the entire time. Grandpa was such a trouper since he carried J most of the time he wasn't walking. That said, J did awesome about walking & going without a nap. We only took a day and really, that was all we were could handle for a first visit.
J on the other hand, is ready to go back...
