Orlando - Day 3 {Disney World}

It was so hard waking up early and getting everyone going Saturday morning because we had already had two jam packed days, but the promise of Disney got us all moving.  We enjoyed a quick breakfast buffet and the girls loved checking out all of the fancy food.  Handley was super impressed with the coconut bowl full of fresh fruit.

We took the shuttle over to Disney and were ready to start our fun there.  Unfortunately, because of being tried and just being a 3 year old, it wasn't off to a good start for Hudson.  He was having a meltdown already (before we even arrived at the park) so we were really worried how our day would go.  Thankfully, after basically forcing him on the first ride, he suddenly changed his tune and realized exactly how much fun he would be having at Disney.

The kids all loved the race cars at Tomorrowland Speedway and the fact that they got to drive.  Hudson couldn't even seen over the steering wheel so he spent most of the time looking out the side to know where to go, but loved every second of it!

We had to be back for the Braves game by late afternoon so for our last ride of the day, we made our way over to the Buzz Lightyear ride and had a few minutes before our Fast Pass began.  We decided to grab some popcorn and let the kids eat and have a break in the shade for little bit. (Side note- We went though more popcorn during the two days we were at Disney than I though was humanly possible.  My kids love popcorn and it as the perfect snack to grab and go as we made our way to the next ride.)  It was so hot while we were there (almost 90 degrees) so the break in the shade was welcomed by all of us.  While the kids were snacking I happened to look over and see Buzz himself, taking pictures with kids, and the line wasn't too long.  I pushed our stroller right over and we all hopped in line.  Hudson is in LOVE with Buzz and was so excited to meet him in person.

Right after that we made our way to the Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin ride.  All of the kids loved it!  Basically you use your laser to shoot the aliens and earn points.  It was so much fun and as soon as we were done the kids all wanted to go on the ride again.

After our last ride we made the trek back to the front of the park to catch our shuttle back to the hotel.  We were all exhausted from the heat and all of the walking and needed a quick break back at the hotel before we made our way to the Braves game that evening.  I have lots to share about that, so it's going to have to wait until tomorrow!  Check back then to read about the rest of our day!
