Disney Vacation Part 2-Downtown Disney

One of our favorite parts of vacation is shopping at Downtown Disney. Downtown Disney is a large, outdoor shopping center with fun shops and restaurants. The boys love the LEGO store there, and I'll admit I do, too. The sculptures they make out of LEGOS for the outside of the building are awesome. We've seen a dragon in the lagoon, a Transformer, a Buzz Lightyear, and a Woody from Toy Story. This year, there was a Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and the dragon from Sleeping Beauty attacking at LEGO knight.
Buzz and Woody made out of LEGOS. This is the scene from Toy Story when they are blasting off of RC Racecar at the end of the movie.
We like to saunter around the shops, Derrick gets Cinnamon Glazed Almonds to munch on, and the boys get to pick out their souvenirs. It sure beats carrying around souvenirs at each park, and for the most part, you can find anything at Downtown Disney that you can find in the parks. We ate dinner at Wolfgang Puck Express-wood fired pizzas were so good!

As we were walking through the World of Disney, Lucas and Matthew were trying on almost every hat possible.

It was a good spot to start our first day at Disney. We went here after we had checked into our resort because we didn't want to use a park ticket if we couldn't spend a whole day at a park.
