Babies First Trip to Disney World #DisneySMMoms

What a magical Mother's Day I had last week! I got to spend it with my boys, husband, friends, former coworkers, bloggers and with my own mother at the happiest place on earth -- Disney World Resorts. As blogged about previously, I had the great opportunity to attend the 4-day Disney Social Media Moms Celebration in Orlando hearing about the latest Disney news, going behind-the-scenes at the different resorts and learning how to better my brand while listening to motivational and informative speakers.

I know some people wouldn't think to take their 6-month-old sons so soon to Disney World, but I couldn't wait. Why not? Yes, I know, they will have no memory of it, but I always will. The photos alone are precious. It was my babies first time to Disney and I’ll never forget it. It was so surreal to be going there as an "adult" with my own children. Wow! Us grown-ups also sneaked off on a few rides too.

When Ben met a life-sized Winnie the Pooh (the same character seen on a lot of his toys and on his bouncer) he extended his hand to touch the soft, silly ole bear. It was precious!

I also have photos of all of us with Mickey Mouse with the boys in matching Mickey onesies too. This time, it was Logan who kept staring at Mickey. He kept craning his neck past me to get a good look at him. I tried blocking his view so he could look toward the camera, but no, he wasn't having it, he darted his head the other way and continued to stare at Mickey. You can see it in the below pic. Too cute! 
 
I also think the boys enjoyed all the activity as they seemed perfectly fine in their strollers people watching and seeing all the colors as they strolled through the parks. They were even fine during Epcot's Illuminations, their nighttime lights and fireworks show. In fact, they were entranced by the bright popping colors in the sky. This was their first-ever fireworks too. Take a look:

Also, if you're ever at a Disney park with kids still in diapers, do ask for the nearest Baby Care Center located within all three parks, here both mommy and daddies can change babies on comfortable cushioned changing beds. They have disposable sheets that go over each changer for each baby. It's also air-conditioned and they sell supplies like diapers and formula in case you are running low. There is also a private pumping area for mothers. We visited this center several times.

I also chronicled how I dressed the boys each day over at TOT Runway: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3

Stay tuned for my next post on some fun upcoming Disney news...

Also, here's a video with highlights from the 2013 Disney Social Media Moms Celebration at Walt Disney World and the babies and I appear with Winnie the Pooh at :58

How awesome! I took Miranda at 4 months, but it was hard. Not going to lie. We ended up in the parks for only three hours each day. Thank goodness for the hotel room nearby. lol

Looks like you had a blast! I hope Miranda grows to be a huge Disney fan like me!
