While we were in Florida Justin's parents took us to Disney World for 4 days. We hit each of the major parks and had a great time. I'm still amazed at how amazing Riley was the entire time we were there. We all had fun and were able to do so many fun things. We carved out a little time for everyone to hit the big items our each of our lists.
The first stop we made when we hit the park was to pick up Riley's Guest Assistance pass. I wasn't so sure what all the talk was about but everyone we talked to about our trip suggested we get this pass to make the trip easier for Riley. Disney certainly has amazing customer service. This pass allowed us to use Riley's stroller as a wheelchair. As we all know Riley can walk just fine so you're probably wondering why we needed him to have a wheelchair. Let me tell you Disney World is amazingly HUGE and there is simply no way Riley could have done all that walking. So this lovely pass allowed us to use his stroller to wheel him through the lines and places that strollers aren't typically allowed. The stroller parking lots amazed me. Hundreds and hundreds of strollers parked outside of rides and those parents hauling around hot, tired, crabby toddlers. I am so very thankful that we didn't have to do that. This lovely pass made Disney possible for Riley. He was a champ for all 4 days.
We spent one day in the Animal Kingdom. We had fun on the safari and spotted lots of animals. Riley is a huge animal fan so he had a great time spotting his favorites. He loved the giraffes and elephants.
We walked and walked and walked to make it to a big ride down a river. We all climbed on this large river raft type thing and floated down the river. We all managed to get totally soaking wet and had a blast. As we wondered a bit to try to dry off we found we were in India and there were great street performers. Riley loved them and share some of his own dance moves!
We also lunched with some pretty sweet guys! They came to our table to say Hi to the boys and they both loved it!
Such a wonderful day in the Animal Kingdom!
