Chronicling the full time RV lifestyle of a young family

Chapter 6: M-i-c-k-e-y….M-o-u-s-e!

Once hurricane Matthew had left Florida we headed back to our campground in Orlando. Thankfully the campground appeared to have minimal storm damage and we were glad to hear that my Grandmother’s home in Edgewater Florida was also largely unharmed.

Knowing that I really wanted to bring Eloise to see Disney World Kevin decided to take time off from work and we enjoyed four very long, hot, but fun days exploring all the mouse had to offer. Eloise thoroughly enjoyed her time there and I do think she will remember it. Eliza slept the entire time but at least she was no cost for admission.

Did we spend hours waiting in line? Yes. Was it so hot that it felt like we were melting from the inside out? Yes. Was Eloise completely in awe when she met princess Elsa and Anna? Yes, and it was so precious. Not precious enough for us to go back any time soon tho.


Waiting in line for the Frozen ride at Epcot

Some of Eloise’s favorites:

  • Favorite ride: the Tower of Terror
  • Favorite princess we met: Rapunzel
  • Favorite park: Magic Kingdom

A special thanks to baby sister for coming along so that Eloise could ride several of the ‘big girl’ rides twice in a row using Disney’s ‘baby swap’ where she can ride once with Daddy and then again with Mommy.

She was allowed to get two Disney toys to remember our fun time there (note she had not yet napped in this photo! haha)

    Hi Kevin, Emma, Eloise and Little Eliza Great pictures and memories of the family. Eloise looked like she was in a big dream world and so happy, but it was for real. I do not thinks she will forget her trip to Disney World. Eliza is so beautiful. It is hard to tell if she will have blue eyes. she has such a nice smile. I bet you was all exhausted at he end of the days you were there. We miss you all and love you. Kiss to Eloise and Eliza for us. Enjoy yourselves in Alabama. Love Ralph and Lorrainex 0x0xx0

  6. Wow, Eloise looks like she is thoroughly enjoying Disney. Eliza sure has grown. She looks like she has Kevin’s eyes and her smile reminds me of Angela’s smile. Both girls are beautiful. Have fun and please stay safe! We love you all!!!
