Georgia's Wish Trip - Part I

On December 29th, we flew out of San Antonio, bound for Orlando and a week of celebrating! You can just see the excitement, even at 4 AM!

We met up with all the grandparents and were on our way. After arriving at Give Kids the World, we explored the village a bit, ate some lunch, and then headed over to Epcot, where the real fun began!

If you've never been to Epcot, we can highly recommend Soarin' and, Ivy's favorite, Test Track! They also love Spaceship Earth and Turtle Talk with Crush - Ivy even asked him a question. Dude! And because Georgia is a "Wish Kid," she had a special button and pass that put all of us in the front of every line, which, at this time of year especially, can be over an hour long. Yep, our girl was treated like royalty the whole trip - so appropriate for our breakfast the next day, her birthday, at ...

Cinderella's Royal Table!

That 5 AM reservation call I made six months ago was well worth it as we celebrated Georgia's 11th birthday right where we celebrated her 3rd birthday.

Happy Happy Birthday, Georgia Lee!

We met all the princesses and enjoyed a delicious breakfast before we hit our favorite rides in Fantasyland and Tomorrowland, the top of the list being It's a Small World, Peter Pan, and Space Mountain. We met so many characters throughout the week, and Georgia and Ivy both have autograph books full of signatures. A Magic Kingdom, indeed!

When we got back to the village, it was Christmas! Like it is every Thursday! It was "snowing," and there were carriage rides and a visit from Santa himself. We capped off the night with some ice cream, like we did nearly every night, and were ready to rest up for the big day to follow!

Next up, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! And more!
