Downtown Disney – Disney Springs

After our breakfast at Cape May we drove over to check out Downtown Disney which is now officially known as Disney Springs. It’s been a hot mess of construction for a LONG time but is getting better and better each time we visit! I know the big appeal of Disney Springs is now supposed to be the high end stores and restaurants, but y’all know us. We ain’t high end type folk πŸ˜‰ I don’t see us enjoying the new elements and we will probably always stick to the Marketplace end of it! 

We got daring and had Tess miss her morning nap! We only skip it occasionally on Sundays so we were a little brave in attempting it. I did bring her friend in hopes that maybe she’d fall asleep in the stroller. Shocker: didn’t happen πŸ™‚ Luckily she’s my angel baby and was happy as could be even if a little sleepy!

Nothing like being greeted by a hot air balloon! 

Although we didn’t walk into any of the new shops, the new layout forces you to pass them all on your way to the Marketplace so we enjoyed window shopping!

Of course we also enjoyed hunting down some hidden Mickeys!

Britt impressed me at our stop into T-Rex! She wasn’t scared this time at all!

Zach’s photo taking skills on this day are pretty hilarious…poor Tramp got his head chopped off πŸ˜‰

Lego Store is a “must do” for our crew!

Kye doesn’t own any Legos. We did some Duplo stuff and he has liked it but we put off legit Lego’s until he was truly old enough to enjoy them. Legos can be frustrating so we really wanted to stick to the age recommendations on the boxes and all the little size legos are at least age 6. This will be Kye’s first Christmas receiving Lego’s and he had so much fun with Zach checking out all the options to put on his Christmas wish list!

I’m not sure if this is new, or if we just never saw it before, but they have a cool build a car racer thing outside the Lego Store. I took the girls to look at the princess stuff while Kye and Carter did some car fun!

Toooo much cuteness!

I adore this πŸ™‚ Daddy gives the best piggy back rides!

Kye, Britt and I pretty much spent our time annoying everyone else by pointing out every Mickey we could see πŸ˜‰

Daddy was so nice to let the kids ride the choo choo!

I thhhhhhink the moms may have had more fun than the kids hahaha


Zach was also sweet enough to let Tess ride the carousel and the big kids were SO great about it. They had just gotten to have an entire day at Disney and Tess didn’t so it was her turn for some special fun! (Although these pics don’t make it look like she enjoyed it haha!)

We packed lunches and found seats to enjoy what we had packed! The babies were getting SO sleepy and Kye was such a big helper keeping them happy. He’s SO great with little ones πŸ™‚

If you ever visit Goofy’s Candy Co then you have to be on the lookout for the hidden GOOFY! We found him and were pumped πŸ™‚

Had to get a little treat (and as far as Disney prices got, $4.95 for this big bag of cotton candy was quite a bargain!)

First time ever eating “candy” 

Oh Britt.

Kye’s reading ability has made life so fun! He was so so funny all morning pointing out the hidden Mickey’s and just was in a silly mood. He cracked me up when we passed by T-Rex on the way back to the car and he said “MOM! The dinosaur BITES!” He had read a sign below the dinosaur fossil display that said “Please do not touch, He BITES” and just couldn’t get over it. He thought it was hilarious because the dinosaur can’t really bite us. 

We got back to the room a few minutes after 1 which was perfect timing for naps! Tess did fall asleep on the way back to the house and Zach used his Daddy ninja skills and somehow managed to get her out of her car seat, into the house, up the stairs and into her bed while STILL asleep! Boom!
