*Lola's favorite ride was the train from the parking lot to the park.
*Late April is the ideal time to go -- our longest wait time was 20 minutes.
*Do not, under any circumstances, ride Splash Mountain in a dress.
*Despite the fact that Lola had been talking about giving Snow White a hug for months beforehand, one look at the evil queen was all it took to cause my daughter to cling to me like white on rice.
*James, however, harbors a secret desire to poke Snow White's eye out.
*When Lola feels her brother could be in danger (like when he got a little to close to that freaky queen), she will yell, "Get him out of there!" repeatedly until her command is heeded.
*My daughter is highly skilled at rewriting history -- a few hours later, she turned to me and said, "Mommy, remember when I hugged Snow White?"
*While Dumbo the movie is blatantly racist and disturbing, Dumbo the ride is delightful.
*A wave from Rapunzel and Flynn Rider rocked my little girl's world (in a good way).
*Disney has a sadistic side -- the Pinocchio ride? Are you kidding me? Reece and I were even more terrified than our poor toddler.
*It took a six-pack of Mickey lollipops to calm Lola down -- lollipops we bought at a cart conveniently located outside said ride. Well played, Disney. Well played.
*The teacups are easily the best family ride in the park.
*Grandparents, aunts and uncles make the experience more fun for everyone (particularly for the parents -- who got to sneak away every once in awhile to hop on a few big-people rides together).
*When Lola gets deliriously tired, she smothers her daddy with smooches.
*My babies are incredibly good sports.
*And most importantly, Lola gets really upset when her parents try to hop into a giant teacup without her.
Happiest Place on Earth, my eye.
