Buzz Lightyear and Carter

Carter and Buzz Lightyear, originally uploaded by allaboutduncan.

You may have noticed a lack of posts last week. You may have also noticed the large amount of Disney related photos on this Photos page or in the Flickr bar on the right. That’s right, we loaded up the family and went to Florida / Disney on vacation.

We spent two days total at Disney. The first day was in the Magic Kingdom (what most people think of when they think Disney World). While we didn’t get to do everything, we did quite a bit and had a great time.

The second day we split between Disney MGM and Disney Animal Kingdom.

MGM is geared to older kids, but Carter still had fun. He loved the 3D Muppet movie and got very excited when he saw Darth Vader, R2-D2, Luke, and Leia in the parade. He was an inch too short for the Star Wars ride, so we didn’t get to check that out.

Animal Kingdom was great and I’d love to go back there and spend more time. The safari ride was worth the wait and the Festival of the Lion King entertaining as well. Still not a lot of rides for Carter. He was a little short for a few and some were still a bit to scary. He’s decided he would he ready for them when he’s 4.

We spent the rest of our time with some of Jill’s relatives, who made us feel right at home. Add in a day at the beach and it was a fun vacation, but a tiring one (with the driving and walking).

Carter was moping for a day or two about how he missed Disney World, but seems to have snapped back to normal now. I have to say, I can’t wait until he is a little older and we can go back and do even more (Star Tours, Haunted Mansion, Epcot, Dinosuar!).
