At the end of our stay in Florida, Nonna and Cousin Will came for a visit. We went to Orlando for a few days and Simon got to go to Disney World for the first time. We spent on day at the Magic Kingdom. Before we even got inside the park, we got to ride the tram and a train to get there. Simon was already impressed and we had not even made it to the park!
He also went on the teacups
"It's a small world" boat ride
and the Magic Kindgom railroad.
He loved the rides. We also saw a few shows at Cinderella's castle which he loved because of the music and dancing. At the end of the show, they had fireworks which he thought was amazing. I did not think we would make it to the parade at 3:00pm because Simon would need a nap, but he was too excited to sleep and he skipped it. We had a front row seat at the parade which he loved.
Another highlight was meeting Mickey and Minnie Mouse.
The whole day was truly magical! Simon continued talking about it for weeks. He would talk about "Simon's elephant in the sky" and "the guys danced" all of the time. He developed a special fondness for Goofy during our visit whom he calls "Foo Koo". The whole day was truly magical and we hope to go back someday! He finally did sleep, but not until we were waking to the parking lot at the end of the day.
