Disney World, Day 1

We arrived!  I am not sure if they look excited in this photo, or if they are already exhausted from lack of sleep.  This was taken our first full day at around 7:00 am. (Thanks to Amy for their adorable shirts)  Notice the 'Under The Sea' curtain in the background.  We stayed in a Little Mermaid room at the new Art of Animation Resort.  The resort was ideal for kids, ours loved the pool & splash pad.  Our room was nothing more than a very decorated standard hotel room, but Lola insisted on calling it our Ariel cottage.  
Our first character experience was at Ohana at the Polynesian for breakfast.  Lola was very nervous at first, but warmed up pretty quickly.  Above she is with Lilo.  We bought her a princess autograph book that she is so proud of.  She was very excited about filling every page with all the characters autographs.  In the end, she did fill the entire book, the perfect souvenir.  
Everyone was a little unsure of Stitch.

Brantley enjoyed standing by the window and looking at the waterfall during breakfast.
We finally talked Brantley into giving Mickey a high five.

Dumbo, this was one of Brantley's favorite rides.
They both LOVED "it's a small world".
The camel at The Magic Carpets of Aladdin spit water on us a few times.
Lola & Daisy Duck
Lola & Minnie Mouse
Dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table.  This was probably one of Lola's favorite things about our entire trip.  She loved dressing up, eating in the castle, & having all the princesses come around to our table.
Okay, so this is not the best photo of me, but notice the girl behind us in the pink dress.  This couple got engaged during our dinner.  It was a big ordeal, lucky us to be seated where all the excitement was.  Oh, it's a good story, but too long to type.
They gave Brantley a sword as soon as we sat down at the table.  It was awesome, made our dinner even more exciting.
