One Last Disney Fix Before School

We managed to work in a quick trip to Orlando for one last Disney fix before school starts. We booked one night in the newest Disney hotel Art of Animation which opened in 2012. The boys were over the moon excited to be staying in the Cars section! 

The dining room table turned bed was a huge hit!! So much so that all three boys crammed onto that bed instead of spreading out and using the sofa bed from the living room. 

Dinner was at the Rainforest Cafe just outside Animal Kingdom before we ran inside to ride the Kali River Rapids twice before the park closed. 

When we got back to the hotel we swam in the Cars section pool and we got our own Cozy Cone to store all of our stuff. 

Then it was time for dessert up in Animation Hall and some window shopping in the gift shop. 

We slept in the next morning and after packing we headed up to Animation Hall again to grab some breakfast. But we strolled past all of the other characters from Cars for some photo opportunities. 

We passed by the Finding Nemo section with its "Mine, Mine" birds and the Big Blue Pool. 

Last but not least, we headed over into the Magic Kingdom for a few rides. Wesley beat the whole family at Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin with 117,000 points! We watched Carousel of Progress, rode Big Thunder Mountain twice, met Woody and Jessie from Toy Story and then took in the Haunted Mansion before more window shopping on Main Street.
