In January of 2001, Cindy was pregnant with our daughter Sophie, and we had a long weekend, so we decided to spend it at Walt Disney World. Since Cindy was pregnant, we couldn’t ride any of the rides we would normally ride — no Space Mountain, no Big Thunder Mountain, nothing like that, so we made the decision early on to eat our way through the parks.
Since it was January, there really wasn’t a big crowd, so we were able to walk right into Guest Services at the Magic Kingdom and make a reservation for lunch at Cinderella’s Royal Table! In addition to that great treat, we also ate at Liberty Tavern and several other wonderful restaurants.
That trip was special in it’s own way. It is amazing to me, when Cindy was pregnant, she got some morning sickness (like almost every woman that has been pregnant). But you know, I don’t think a single thing that we ate at Disney World made her sick that weekend.
This trip was a way for Cindy and I to just be together, even though Sophie was there, it was just the two of us, just enjoying a great weekend, and taking the road less traveled at Disney. We watched the shows, we enjoyed the small rides like “It’s a Small World“, and we just enjoyed being there together.
It was a great way to kick off the year Sophie was born, and it gave us the chance to enjoy being a couple before Sophie arrived. Here are a few other pictures from that trip that you might enjoy!

Of course, our daughter Sophie is the most exciting adventure, and if you look at the picture above, Sophie is in that picture also!

[…] My wife and I have been to Walt Disney World just one time in the month of January — January 2001 to be exact! It was the second time that Cindy had ever been to Disney, and it also happened to be the time we were at Disney when we were expecting our daughter Sophie! So, due to those circumstances, this was the trip that we ate our way around Disney! […]
