I have to admit this was one of the best days we had while in Orlando. The weather was perfect, nice and sunny, and we had a great system that worked for touring the parks. The best part was the fact the park was empty aside from groups of hoochie dressed cheerleaders running around the park (mini rant - why do 7 year old cheerleaders have to dress so relieving and why do parents let them? I'm a mom of two boys so I clearly don't get it but all I know is that I'd NEVER let my kid walk around a public park dressed like that - at least put a t-shirt on until you are on stage end rant).
Our plan for touring the park was simple hit the big rides early and see the shows later. Also we split up so that Tavish did not have to sit and wait for us adults to ride but that he could ride or see something with the set of adults who were not riding (Universal does have a switching off program but it's different than the Disney one - the non riding parent goes into a waiting room until the riding parent is finished the ride and then they switch off). What worked so well about our arrangement was that Nana and Papa got to do something fun with Tavish and Callen while Kyle and I were on a ride but then Kyle and I got to have some alone time with the boys while they were on a ride.
I'll post our touring plans later but we had a great time but by 5pm we were ready to get some food (Pastamore in the CityWalk) and head back to our hotel to get ready for our early Disney day.
Callen waiting in line to get into the park
Tavish had so much fun walking around the plants
Okay maybe Kyle was more excited to see Homer than Tavish
Please don't let the clown eat me
