We went to Disney World

Andy is 28 months old and still non-mobile, and pretty much non-verbal.  However, we bit the bullet and scheduled a flight to Orlando, Florida in mid-September to visit Disneyworld. It is supposed to be the least busy time of year. Initially, we wanted to wait until Andy could walk, but we really don't know when that will be. My 4 year old daughter Gabby is very into princesses right now, and if we wait too long, she may be out of the princess phase by then. So, we scheduled at 4 day, 5 night, Sunday through Thursday trip.

Andy was a dream on the flight there. He didn't make a peep. We kept him entertained with a headphone set and our iphones. He watched Blues Clues and listened to the Black-Eyed Peas. He just got over an ear infection, so we were hoping his ears wouldn't bother him, and I don't think they did. The bus ride there was also great, he was very good.

The weather was supposed to be in the 80s, but every day was sunny and 92 degrees, so this really irritated the hubby and Andy. The heat caused a lot of irritation, and by the third day, Andy was blowing his top. On the plane ride home, he was completely inconsolable, and cried the whole 2 and a half hour flight. I felt bad for taking him, but he did enjoy about 70% of it, I'd say.
