We went to sesame place last week. We thought it was a disaster at first. It was super hot when we got there and it was just before his usual nap time, plus we had to wait a little bit for Carolyn, Tom and Connor. The first thing he we saw was Grover and we asked him if he wanted to get out of the stroller and take a picture with him and he flipped out. We’re pretty sure he thought we went there to feed him to giant, blue, furry monster. 

So we decided to go in a gift shop to cool off, but he saw the merry-go-round on the way, so we had to do that first. Waiting was torture. We had to wait through three rides, the last of which, the line was cut off just in front of us. Owen was crushed, but he waited pretty patiently, which bodes well for Disney. He was so excited when he finally got on. His friend, Connor though, was about at nervous Owen was his first time, and had to be nursed through the whole ride, poor guy.

Connor did better with the water. I had to convince Owen it was like running through the sprinkler. He spent a lot of time on my back. By the time we got to the Count’s Splash Castle, he thought it was pretty great running and splashing through the water. After that, the boys were pretty tuckered out. 

We decided to do a couple more rides. Owen went on with Bryan, Connor fell asleep in line :D Owen had a blast. We decided he was too tired to stay for the parade and made our way home. He fell asleep in the car for a little bit which he never does anymore. Overall, a successful trip.

Bryan introduced Owen to Frozen this week and he’s been walking around chanting, “music, of Frozen?” And singing “Let it go! Let it go!” And “deep, deep, deep, deep snow.” It’s too cute. We got him an Olaf and now he cuddles with Olaf and Pooh before bed. He’s going to love Disney so much. I can’t wait.

  1. Oh my goodness, Owen will definitely love Disney when you go! I doubt he will be scared of Mickey or anything. It will be so great. He will love the fantasyland rides! I am so excited for you all! Glad he enjoyed himself for the Sesame Street land!
