These are from Aloha Ears - i am kinda obsessed with there stuff. It is all interchangeable so we have 2 head bands and a bunch of ears and bows/crowns and Dillon (and me when i am up for it) can mix and match! https://alohaearsdesign.com/
I love the stuff from Aloha ears!! It's seriously dangerous lol

You know it, always when i need them up they sleep when i want them to sleep they are up.... but right now they are on an up by 6am kick EVERY SINGLE DAY!
:rotfl: :rotfl:

Yeah this girl has zero filter and gives me up all the time! i am in trouble with that one
That was my brother when he was little. One time he gave my dad up to the cops for fireworks in 2 seconds flat! :rotfl:

Same girl! This would 100% bit be where i picked but Rob really wanted to do a water park, and he gives into me so often i was set on making it happen!
I hear you on that! I feel like it's so rare that Mike actually tells me he wants to do something so when he does, I feel I have to make it happen!

Oh no! I'm sorry you fell! But I'm glad it was just your pride that got hurt and nothing else got injured. That would have been quite the story to call and tell the rest of the family...

I am pretty sure Disney designed that character breakfast with 80's and 90's girls at heart. I remember when it was announced going, "Where was that when I was a kid?!" I would've died at the opportunity to meet Prince Eric. :rotfl2:


Thanks for the recap of Blizzard Beach with young kids! My two are a little older, but I did wonder if it would be worth taking them to a water park now. Sounds like it was a pretty relaxing time overall.

I am finally coming over to catch up on this trip report! I am only on page 2 but I will get there.

ME (I cant even find a selfie of me alone! Not even a good one at that! Mom problems i guess)
Such a problem! Even on our adults only trip, I just didn't have pictures of just me!

We had a 2pm flight but a bit of a crazy few days leading up to it. Work had been insane and we had a small mix up with some furniture we needed delivered/set up before the trip. I felt very unprepared when I hadn’t packed a thing at 5pm on Wednesday. I ended doing a target run that night to try and wrap up what we needed.
I feel like I end up with multiple Target runs before every trip.

Honestly I couldn’t understand anything they were saying. All of a sudden people were boarding and you know when everyone huddles around the gate., which I hate. We were group A, so we went up and they said oh this is allergy boarding not group A, I didn’t even know this was a boarding group. I said sorry and moved aside. 3 minutes later they start boarding group A so we go up, and this guy goes sorry I’m A and shoves in front of me.
Ugh, I don't understand the huddles. Especially when it is an airline where everyone has a seat assignment!

Dillons been having a bit of vomiting issues lately while flying and I did a bunch of research and one cause can actually be not eating.
Oye! Morgan used to be a puker. Not on airplanes, but everywhere else. And I am happy to report that she seems to have out grown it. She can control it ALOT more.

We ended up having a successful flight with no vomiting!!
Woo Hoo!

We were lucky and were accommodated here! We did need to stop by the next day for official check out/check in but that was not an issue.
That is lucky. I know that they can't always accomidate that.

Spoiler I ended up booking the Frozen desert party the following night, so we were going to get to do it twice!
Nothing wrong with that.

his was really exciting for me, we got extremely lucky, we had purchased the vouchers the day they announced there would be SWGE previews for pass holders, the next day the prices of passes went up, so I feel like we got a deal.. Disney math for ya!
We had our annual passes before they upped the cost. It def helped with these trips this year. I am not sure if we can do it again. I feel like they went up ALOT.

i don't have pictures so just imagine standard Mexican quick service and two margaritas
I am very familiar with this image. Ha!

Dillon found this horrible mom joke hysterical and starting calling Maren the slow pass.
Oh no! This sounds like something that my girls would latch onto and drive each other crazy about. And I love the idea of them walking and holding hands. Soo cute!

(Feel free time follow along on Instagram @laurenalexis6)
I just did!

Fancy Nancy chatted with us about Paris for a while, and was a lot of fun. Vamparina was fun too but I don't remember what we talked about, Goofy and Doc were good as well! Overall the food here isn't great but the characters made up for, at least for us! (Maren didn't freak out, but notice she didn't make it into any pictures)
We are so far past these characters, I don't even really know them. Which kind of makes me sad.


Maren did not enjoy Olaf as much as the rest of us.
Poor Maren. She is probably thinking "Why is he so big? Isn't he to be little?"


Good picture of everyone but me.. this is my trip report i should change it up and post the best of me going forward... But i wont cause those are the sacrifices i make.
This is such an example of being a mom!


Maren not as freaked out during this meet....
Joy and Sadness are so fun to meet. I am sad that you can't meet Sadness any more.

Dillon insisted I take some pictures

Well Of Course!

I made it to the end! I am all caught up!

@StarWarsMomofGirls! carried metal straws when we were there in August and I thought she was genius! Those paper things are horrible.
It is now part of my packing list!

You're supposed to let your kids win on TSMM?! Yeah, I don't even pretend to try to do that. :rotfl2:
Ha! The very first time we rode, Gwen was little and all she knew was she was pulling the string and she say things flying. And all she kept screaming was "I am DOING IT!!!! I AM DOING IT!!" It was so cute! And will always be one of my favorite memories.

The kids loved it, the adults did not, I will not be doing this again... Dillon can convince her aunt or someone to take her.

OMG!!! The girls wanted to do this in August too! And all I could think was that it def wouldn't be as fun as it looks.

We then took our sore legs back to the Yacht club, but the best is we are walking back and this family is doing the surrey bikes and he yells you were right this sucks! :rotfl2:
OMG!!!! This is hilarious! And I love it!

We headed for breakfast and this is where the early morning and no food caught up with everyone, small argument over what we should do, either Haunted Mansion or breakfast, we settled on breakfast.
This! This is exactly what happens to us!

After the Laugh Factory we had to purchase some ears because we need more ears...
I actually refrained from buying ears when we were in Disney in December. I never wear them very long. But now that our last AP trip is coming up. I want new ears!

It was close to a 35 minute wait and DH said Dillon was good and my dad complained a bit, by mostly making sarcastic jokes about why they were waiting so long.
Ha! How true is that sometimes. The kids are better than the adults!


You be the judge? Scared or not? Either way she loved it!
Poor, gal, she looks so scared. And that is just the first hallway!

She wanted to wait in the blazing sun... so we waited, they supplied an umbrella for shade!!!!
They didn't have those when we were waiting for Phineas and Ferb in May!


Photo of pixie dust we could not ruin... 🤪

So we had settled for some iPad time a snack and laundry. After the snack we went to the shop
I mean, she isn't wrong... You need to perserve that!

o I went with LTT which we hadn’t done before. I always think the dinner looks so heavy, but was excited to give it a try.
Same for me! We have lunch reservations for August.

owever we do have Disney in just over 4 weeks so there is that!
YEAH!!!!!

They are cute ears... but maybe not worth all that!
Very cute


We met Flynn Ryder who was pretty funny, Rob made a comment to Dillon to take a picture and she goes mommy wants a picture, and Flynn goes oh now I see while we are really here, you know it!
Ha!

Had to share a picture of Casey from this same spot way too long ago!!!

Look at that tiny Casey!!!!

Catching up on some replies.... you probably forget you even posted!

I love the stuff from Aloha ears!! It's seriously dangerous lol
RIGHT! I was just browsing for my next trip.... bad idea!

That was my brother when he was little. One time he gave my dad up to the cops for fireworks in 2 seconds flat! :rotfl:
HAHA OMG love this! :rotfl2:

I hear you on that! I feel like it's so rare that Mike actually tells me he wants to do something so when he does, I feel I have to make it happen!
Exactly! He is always so whatever you think, whatever you want you did the research when he has an opinion i am like we MUST DO IT

Oh no! I'm sorry you fell! But I'm glad it was just your pride that got hurt and nothing else got injured. That would have been quite the story to call and tell the rest of the family...
Could you imagine?? haha!

I am pretty sure Disney designed that character breakfast with 80's and 90's girls at heart. I remember when it was announced going, "Where was that when I was a kid?!" I would've died at the opportunity to meet Prince Eric. :rotfl2:
Totally this!

Thanks for the recap of Blizzard Beach with young kids! My two are a little older, but I did wonder if it would be worth taking them to a water park now. Sounds like it was a pretty relaxing time overall.
Dillon liked the toddler area but didn't need it (i think she is closer your kids ages) . If we do another water park we will try typhoon lagoon next time.... maybe in May...

I am finally coming over to catch up on this trip report! I am only on page 2 but I will get there.
Welcome 2 weeks later!

Such a problem! Even on our adults only trip, I just didn't have pictures of just me!
Mom life am i Right? Even with photopass i don't get any pics of just me!

I feel like I end up with multiple Target runs before every trip.
Another mom life problem!

We had our annual passes before they upped the cost. It def helped with these trips this year. I am not sure if we can do it again. I feel like they went up ALOT.
UGH! I am hoping to do it again 2021/2022 but i am not sure i can justify it... BUT then again 2 7 days is still like the same price, #disneymath so i only need to go to 2 week long trips :rolleyes1

Oh no! This sounds like something that my girls would latch onto and drive each other crazy about. And I love the idea of them walking and holding hands. Soo cute!
Its way cute, luckily i don't think Maren is old enough to be annoyed by these things yet...


We are so far past these characters, I don't even really know them. Which kind of makes me sad.
:sad: Honestly they get so big so quick.... i dont get it

This is such an example of being a mom!
This is a full on mom report!

Joy and Sadness are so fun to meet. I am sad that you can't meet Sadness any more.
UGH i am so upset about this! She was the best! This was one of our favorite meets this trip!


Ha! The very first time we rode, Gwen was little and all she knew was she was pulling the string and she say things flying. And all she kept screaming was "I am DOING IT!!!! I AM DOING IT!!" It was so cute! And will always be one of my favorite memories.
OMG SO cute!

OMG!!! The girls wanted to do this in August too! And all I could think was that it def wouldn't be as fun as it looks.

OMG!!!! This is hilarious! And I love it!
Smart move! But they are old enough you could have made them peddle and you relaxed! But you made the right call skipping this one! But the whole thing now makes for a pretty funny story!

This! This is exactly what happens to us!
HAHA i wonder if this is a very common problem after this event!

Ha! How true is that sometimes. The kids are better than the adults!

Poor, gal, she looks so scared. And that is just the first hallway!
Right? She So good on the line, and well i am in love with this picture i may blow it up and frame it!

They didn't have those when we were waiting for Phineas and Ferb in May!
They were helpful that's for sure! It was HOT and sunny this day!
