I've been in that new mom fog... feeling trapped in my house, lonely, bored, covered in baby vomit. One day, when I could stand it no longer, I called my sister and asked if she'd be interested in meeting up at Disney Springs one day soon. As luck would have it, she and her wife had a Disney trip planned for the near future, and they'd be thrilled to spend a day at Disney Springs with us. YAY!
Both boys hated it. Riley is always a pill when we are shopping - even shopping at Disney. Remy wanted to be held the entire time. He would have none of his stroller. While Jackie and Meghan were in line to purchase stuff, I took my babies outside. Riley said, "You know, Disney has the best popcorn." So naturally, we had to buy some.
No real plan, just wander and meander.
Cupcakes on My Mind
I have been dying to try the cupcake ATM at Sprinkles. Ok, not dying, but I do love cupcakes. The prospect of getting cupcakes via an ATM machine was enough to spark the attention of my sisters.
The machine did not disappoint.
After our cupcakes, we needed lunch. Obviously.
Riley and Reagan wanted to try the T-Rex restaurant. We usually eat at the Rainforest Cafe, so it was nice to try something new.
As a food allergy mama, I appreciate when a chef will come out and talk to us at the table. Disney is so good about this. It really takes a good chunk of the fear out of trying something new. Riley is (rightfully) quite hesitant to try new food spots. It helps him too, to know that the people in the kitchen know what will kill him and they will avoid it. He asked the chef if the kids' cheeseburgers and fries would be ok, the chef said "For sure Bud, I'll make you delicious sliders and fries." Riley ate them all.
I had the buffalo chicken sandwich. It was incredible. But huge... so if you want to share with someone, go for it. You definitely get your money's worth with this one.
None of us ate a salad or anything lite... so we really needed to walk it off. Hahaha.
We spent the remainder of our time walking in and out of shops. Then it was time to drive home. It was a magically perfect Disney day.
Our Disney Sides
We are fortunate enough to live a short drive away from the Happiest Place on Earth! And we take full advantage of it!
