One of my favorite parts of the Disney experience was very unexpected: the parades. I absolutely loved them everywhere we went. The music and the enthusiasm of the characters combine to make a more than memorable event. With all of the people in the crowds I somehow seemed to get tons of pictures with the characters looking “right at me” …they are so into what is going on around them…playing their parts and not just waving to a crowd.
This spring’s visit to Walt Disney World held one very memorable activity for SuperBaby. At only 2 1/2 years old he thoroughly enjoyed the parks, the rides and the food…the characters and all of the excitement….but his favorite venture was at Hollywood Studios in the Honey I Shrunk the Kids! play area.
This whole play area is designed like the Szalinkski’s backyard! There is only one entrance/exit and it is guarded by a cast member so kids can run and play…climb and jump to their heart’s content. While all of the SuperKids had fun in this oversized backyard playground….I think SuperBaby had the most fun because he was “set loose”. He wasn’t being told “Stay With Me!” or made to sit in the stroller. He could exercise some of his budding independence and use up some energy at the same time!
