If you remember we took the girls to Disneyland for their 4th birthday in which I accompanied them riding around in a fancy scooter (I was sooo happy to ditch that thing this year!). They again wanted to go to Disney for their 5th birthday and with the quads still content to sit in a stroller we decided it would be a great time to take everyone. We waited until spring break was over and we went during the middle of the week. Paul's parents joined us and it worked out perfect. The babies would join us in the mornings and then they were taken back to the hotel for their afternoon nap.
We did take our quad stroller and had many people doing double takes. For the most part everyone was great and very respectful. I only had one lady that I had to gently ask to move on as she started asking for every one's name. If I would have been on my toes I would have said winter, summer, fall & spring! I was also told once I was rude when I asked a lady to please not touch my children. She proceeded to tell me I was weird and rude as she turned her nose up at me. I was a bit surprised because I was actually very kind about it and another mother who was behind me validated I was not rude but she was very rude. My soap box for today is: It is not okay to touch babies that you do not know if you have not been asked; even if it is their feet. Babies are very flexible and as soon as you get done putting your germy, unwashed hands on a babies feet those same feet go right into their mouth. Moving on...
The girls were once again in love with all the princesses and they have a new area to meet the princesses and the girls were in heaven when both Ariel and Cinderella were there. Natalie is in love with Cinderella and Ariel is Aubrey's favorite. And Drew well I think he likes all of them! We did not get to ride on Radiator Springs Racers in the new Cars area because the shortest wait the entire time we were there was 75 minutes. And the fast passes line in the mornings was pretty much the same wait time just to be able to go back later in the day. We were all fine with waiting until our next visit except for Paul's parents who we sent back one evening to go spend some time at the park since they had been with the babies all day. They waited for 90 minutes before getting on. They said it was a neat ride but not long enough after waiting in line for an hour and a half!
The babies did awesome and besides a little cold that everyone started getting on the last day it was a successful trip. It felt good to get the first trip out of the way and to know that it is possible for us to go on vacation. Our next trip is already in the planning mode and it is to the Oregon coast in June to celebrate Drew's birthday.
