Thanksgiving weekend

This Thanksgiving weekend was so much fun since we spent it a Disney World, our favorite place in this whole world!!
On Thanksgiving day we met up with some friends at Magic Kingdom and spent the day hanging out with Mickey and pals... We got to visit the new "Fantasy Land"..even though not all of it is open yet, we did get to experience a couple of new rides and also part of the new scenery...
Here's Olivia in front of Gaston's Tavern, one of the newest spots at Disney...


This is the entrance to the newest Ariel ride "Under the Sea"..it was cute and the girls loved it...


..and of course, there were Christmas shows and decorations everywhere.. nothing tops Disney at Christmas time.. we really had a blast!


On Friday, we went to Hollywood Studios and saw a bunch of characters or "puppets" as Gaby likes to call them.. the girls really enjoy taking picture with the characters and getting their little books autographed.. so we just oblige... ;)


..among the many characters we saw, we found Ralph and Vanellopee from the movie "Wreck-it-Ralph"...the girls were thrilled to see some new "puppets" walking around...


..at night we enjoyed the "Osborne Spectacle of Dancing Lights", one of the holiday favorites which takes place at Hollywood Studios every year.. it's really neat to see all the dancing lights and listen to some of the greatest Christmas tunes.. what an amazing experience...


...and of course we saw "Goofy Santa"..here are the girls and their friend Alessandra posing with this funny "puppet"..


... we went on our favorite ride "Toy Story Midway Mania" and I have to say that I was impressed with Gaby's improved accuracy and speed..She has been on this ride several times before and always ended up with a score of "ZERO".. This time, however, she reached almost 12,000 points on her own.. it was quite amazing!!


Yesterday we went to Epcot with my parents, sister and niece who joined us for the remainder of the weekend.. the weather was amazing and we all had a blast together.. It had been 14 years since my parents visited Epcot so it was quite the experience for them...



...and to finish off our weekend, we visited Downtown Disney before heading home.. 
Once again, the weather was to die for so we had a blast walking around and enjoying the beautiful scenery... it was such a fun day and great trip...I hope we can do it again very soon!


..here are the girls playing at the Lego store.. one of their favorite places...


...and this is the closest we got to eating turkey on Thanksgiving day... LOL


I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday...we certainly did!
