While at Walt Disney World, I went on Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s Wild Africa Trek. I will be posting a review on this premium park experience in April. Until then, here’s a sneak peak at my experience.
I hope your little ones enjoy this video. My boys keep watching it and talking to the computer. I will SO many more posts in the days and weeks to come. Of course, I won’t overload you with too many Walt Disney World posts, as this is Babes in DISNEYLAND!

For the last year, my boys and I have been on the hunt for Peter Pan. We have done everything possible to find him. We’ve asked at the info board, asked character hosts, spoke with “behind-the-scenes” Cast Members…you name it. It has been nothing short of a labor of love to make my son Brandon’s dreams come true. If you are a regular reader, you know that my son Brandon is beyond obsessed with Peter Pan. He eats, breathes, sleeps, dresses, and recites Peter Pan all day long. I knew I had to make this meeting happen.
Although Brandon has been yearning to meet his hero for the longest time, he seemed a bit overwhelmed to actually meet him in person. He seemed so nervous, he could barely crack a smile or look him in the eye. Nonetheless, Peter Pan sensed Brandon’s admiration and immediately pulled him to sit on his lap when Wendy told the children Peter Pan’s stories.

Peter Pan stories.

After story time was over, Peter, Wendy, and the children engaged in a fun game of hide and seak.
When Hide and Seek was over, Peter and Wendy took pictures with all of the children but took time out to spend time with Brandon. Brandon and Peter discussed their abilities to fly and fight Captain Hook.
Peter even let Brandon try out the very same knife he used to fight Captain Hook.
Brandon even showed off his muscles.
The entire experience with Peter Pan and Wendy was nothing short of magical. I was choking back tears and swallowing down the lump in my throat the entire time. Brandon has been talking about his best friend Peter nonstop ever since. He has asked repeatedly if Peter can have another play date with him. It’s just darling.
Making Brandon’s dream come true is one of those unique and wonderful experiences that can only happen at Disney Parks and a moment in time that I will cherish all of my days. I am so incredibly thankful that Disneyland is such a big part of my children’s lives.
