She loved the rides at Disney in June so we thought she would be thrilled to ride on Elmo and Big Bird theme ones. Boy were we wrong. She was terrified of most of them. She wanted to go but once it got started she would freak out and cry. As soon as it was over she would scream, "Yay, I did it!" It was sweet to see her conquer her fears. We also thought she would enjoy seeing "real" ELmo and friends. Once again, we were wrong. She really liked seeing them on stage, in the parade and from afar, but if we got close to them the freak out began. Then we would walk away or the show or parade would end and she would be asking where they went. She wanted them to be around and she wanted to talk to them just not up close. She liked running around a five and under play area. It was cute watching her do laps and say, "I'm coming!" The sky threatened to rain on us all day but it never did. I was glad that it was overcast because it saved us from the glare of the sun all day. The weather was perfect!
Over all it was a very fun and well worth it. Just seeing Moriah have a blast at the shows and playing in the play areas was well worth the trip. We finished out the day at Cheeburger Cheeburger and then had a pit stop at Sonic to get shakes for dessert. We just couldn't pass one and not stop (we don't have a Sonic near us). It was an exhausting but fun day!
Levi is teething, can you tell?
So proud after the ride.
She was SO scared! But she LOVED Dumbo at Disney not two months ago and this was the same ride just Elmo. We didn't get it.
Being chased by a boy in the "Big Bird Nest." It was cute. He would chase her and then copy what she was doing. She seemed oblivious to his pursuit.
We went to Elmo's World Live show and you would have thought Moriah was in heaven. She adored seeing him and Mr. Noodle.
Watching the Parade from Zack's shoulders, Moriah didn't miss a thing.
Being Lazy in Big Bird's Rambling River.
I think her favorite ride. It's the only one she asked to do again.
"I love you Cookie Monster." Were her words but her actions said, "STAY BACK!"
