First part, Disney World has these massive parking lots that have a wonderful tram system that will take you from a stop in the parking lot right to the front gates of every park. The first time we went to Disney we were newbies--we didn't know that the walk from the parking lot really isn't that far if you get to the park early enough. So, almost every time on our first trip, we took the Trams. Jack seriously loved them during that trip, they were probably one of his favorite rides. BUT, us adults hated those things. You have to fold up the strollers, take off backpacks and try to fit into this little space as quick as possible, all while trying to get your two kids onto the Tram. Needless to say it was a pain. SO, this trip, we made it a point to park and walk to the gates at all but one park....let me tell you folks, Ryan dreaded having to use the Tram (even thought this year was much easier with Jack being older and Lydia actually being able to walk!). He even accidentally called the tram the "damn tram" a few times. Our kids, LOVED it! Seriously it is one of their favorite rides still today if you ask them!!
Second part, My sister and her husband had given both kids Disney gift cards to use towards anything they wanted to buy while on our trip. We had been in multiple stores the first few days and of course there were little things here and there that they both thought they wanted. That was until we were at the Magic Kingdom walking through a store and Jack found the perfect toy--a Disney World Tram! He was set on getting this thing and was so excited that he yelled out "Mom look, it's the Damn Tram!" Yep people, I was the mom at Disney World whose son not once, but twice, while surrounded by lots of parents and children, yelled "look at the Damn Tram!!" And, as you can see he got that Damn Tram on our last day there and made quite the memory for the rest of us :)

Our last day in Florida was spent relaxing, swimming and packing to head back home. The kids (and adults) had a blast at the hotel pool--Jack loved the waterslide and was able to get every single adult to try it out with him! Lydia loved the hot tubs and laying out in the sun.
