Some of that Disney Magic

 We started our Disney World adventure at Chef Mickey's.  What a great dinner and a fantastic way to meet characters without standing in a long, hot line.  We had a lot of fun here.  To those of you planning your own trip, Chef Mickey's is located in the Contemporary Resort.  You simply take the Monorail from Magic Kingdom there, but make your reservations as soon as you know you are headed to Disney.  It is very popular. 
 Mickey gave Buddy a smooch.  LOL.  I missed the actual smooch, but you can see he is a bit red in the face.
 Here we are waiting for the Electric Lights parade.  We have been up since 4 in the morning traveling.
Look!  We found Donald in Frontierland...what luck.  Buddy loved his raccoon hat.
 I really enjoyed Epcot's Home and Garden Festival.  The topiaries were really cool.

Buddy also enjoyed visiting some of the countries at Epcot.  We ate at an Italian restaurant.  He also got a super cool cellphone with video messages from Kim Possible.  It was a neat interactive spy mission that he really enjoyed.
 We really enjoyed the Finding Nemo ride and aquarium at Epcot.  We also had some firsts this trip:  Mission Space, Fast Track, and Soarin'.  All 3 were very cool rides.
 We did go to the Animal Kingdom.  We enjoyed the Safari Ride, the Finding Nemo Musical, and this character breakfast at the Tusker House. 

 We stayed at the Caribbean Beach Resort.  It was a total hit complete with pirate theme.  We did a lot of swimming as it in was in the high eighties most of the week.
 That is the short version of a fabulous vacation.  We enjoyed Hollywood Studios as well.  I guess I forgot to upload a picture from there.
