One of my dearest blog friends was down this way for a Disney vacation with her family, so we just had to make a Disney meet up happen. I've known Jamie for around two years now and we've never gotten the chance to meet until last Friday. I was nervous that it might be a bit awkward and Chris thought the whole thing was nutso, but thankfully it was great. So much fun in fact I'm planning on talking Jamie into joint Disney vacations from now on =)
We were aiming for a 9am meet up, but we were an hour late because getting to Disney on time is the hardest ever for us. I blame traffic. We finally did arrive, and we finally did meet up though! Aria was ready to frog march the whole party all over the place starting with Dumbo, but I convinced her that it was Reese's turn to lead the way. First up was a trek through the Swiss Family Treehouse where Aria sprinted through the entire thing leaving the rest of us in the dust. I think she was so excited to have a friend but way too shy to actually interact with her that she could only act like a crazy kid. She almost caught a duck...by the neck. (Jamie - she isn't like that ALL the time...promise!)
Done with Magic Kingdom but not done with Disney World! We wanted to head over to Epcot to do the egg hunt. Last year we did it closer to Easter and they were completely out of maps. I was super disappointed. This year we made sure to go right when it first started, and we bought two maps. You can do the egg hunting without a map, you'd just go find the eggs without a set of stickers to stick on the map. But, with the map you also get a reward. They are only 5 or 6 bucks and they come with your choice of one of several Disney eggs. You don't even need to complete the map, and you get to keep it as well. The cast member just puts a stamp on the back and you can collect your egg before after or during your egg hunt. So, I got two maps to make up for not getting an egg last year.
Spoiler alert: There are pictures of the egg locations below, so if you have plans of hunting and don't want any hints walk away now!
Here we go...
