Visiting in Orlando with the young family!

Jean Guy and Roselind were very happy to have family come down for a visit. After the couple greeted Luc, Denise and their two children at the airport, they headed out to the hotel for their three day stay in Orlando. They all went at Disney World, at the Magic Kingdom Park on their first day and on their second day, they visited Disney's Animal Kingdom. The third day was spent at Sea World. The first two days in Orlando were cold, the weather was at 0 degrees C the second night and during the day, the weather climb around 15 degrees which made it comfortable enough while visiting. At Disney, the two highlights were the Celebrate A Dream Come True Parade and Wishes, the nighttime spectacular fireworks at the Cinderella Castle. Alexia really enjoyed seeing the Disney Characters and her best part of all was taking her picture with the fairy Thinker Bell at her Magical Nook. As for Yanik, even though he found the place noisy, he liked seeing Mickey Mouse at the Dream Along with Mickey Stage Show. Then at Sea World, every one enjoyed the entertainment shows. Alexia loved feeding the dolphins while Yanik liked playing in the stingray lagoon. Luc and Denise enjoyed eating out and shopping at the Orlando's Premium Outlet but seeing their kids enjoying themselves at the attraction parks was what they loved the most! At the end, the grandparents were glad all went well with everyone and were very happy of their visit in Orlando.

The first day in Orlando at the Magic Kingdom!

Getting There!

Once after parking the vehicle, (you have to note where you've parked your car so at the end of the day, you know where to get it), everyone proceeded to get in the Disney trams.
These trams brought us to the ticket boot purchase.
Alexia with Piglet on her back...

and Yanik with Winnie the Pooh!

This is the monorail that transported the people to the main entrance at Disney.
In the monorail.
Alexia, surprised when the monorail moved.
Yanik and Pepere leaving the monorail.

At the Magic Kingdom!

Luc, Yanik, Alexia and Denise, at Disney's Entrance.

Yanik doesn't seem sure about all this!
There were a lot of people and he didn't feel comfortable with all the noise.
Alexia on Denise's shoulder and Yanik on Pepere's shoulder. They had a better view that way!
And there was Mickey, Minnie and other Disney Characters at the Dream Along with Mickey Show.
The grandkids and the parents too enjoyed watching the show.
Yanik with Maman at The Celebrate A Dream Come True Parade.
And then Mickey and Minnie on the first float.
Alexia is really into it, she waved her hand through out the parade.
The Cinderella Float and Alexia's favorite princess.

Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen Characters from the movie " Princess and the Frog".
Not just Alexia enjoying watching the parade. Denise is liking it too!
Yanik wasn't so sure about all this! Pepere had to take a few step back since the little boy was a bit scared.
And then Alexia took her picture with her favorite fairy "Tinker Bell".
Yanik having an ice cream. Yummy! Yummy!
Now Alexia is eating some cotton candy with Papa. She sure likes it, she's licking her lips!

While waiting in line for the attraction "It's A Small World", Alexia and Yanik playing together.
Alexia and Yanik played with their Walkie Talkie, so it kept them busy while in line.

At the end of the day, Alexia got a Mickey Mouse Balloon. Only one problem! it had to be deflated for the trip back home on the airplane.

Then, the second day at the Animal Kingdom!

Posing at the front entrance of the park. Everyone was dressed warm. The weather was at 0 degrees C during the night.
Yanik always enjoyed being with Pepere.
And then, Alexia meeting Mickey dressed in Safari at Camp Mickey-Minnie. She was waiting for Mickey's autograph.
Yanik also went to see Mickey.
Memere also liked posing with Mickey!
Luc, Alexia and Pepere at the Festival of the Lion King, also located at Camp Mickey-Minnie.
Yanik didn't like that attraction, there was too much noise for him!
This attraction was a high-energy celebration with dance, music and acrobatics performances plus a sing along with the favorite character "Lion King"
The young family at the Africa Village.
Yanik playing the African drums.
And then, Alexia's turn!
And Yanik is still playing! It amused him for quite some time.
Alexia waiving during the parade.
Yanik didn't enjoy the noise too much!
Alexia kept waiving at every float that went by.
And the famous Donald Duck on a float!
After exploring all afternoon, everybody was hungry, so they headed out to eat in Asia's Yak & Yeti Restaurant. The food was great!

After eating, Yanik was full of energy again.

All eyes are on the front stage for the musical "Finding Nemo".
A musical stage production that brings the story "Finding Nemo" to life.
This show merged puppetry with live performances.
And, is the most recent addition in the park.
Alexia and Yanik at the attraction "The Boneyard". Alexia was digging for some wooly mammoth bones!
Yanik, trying to figure out where to start digging!
And then, he found a spot, at the vertabrae!
Alexia and Pepere playing around!
