With all of the this work renovating the food truck, it was time for a long awaited vacation to Disney World with the Corona Family, Hasty Family, and the Cooper Family. There were 13 of us in all with kids’ ages ranging from 22 months to 16 years-old.
The Corona’s and Cooper's arrived late Friday night and stayed in a lovely 2 bedroom villa at Old Key West.
On Saturday, after a delicious breakfast at Olivia’s Cafe we headed to Hollywood studios while we waited for our luggage to be transferred to the tropical Polynesian Village Resort.

Over at the Polynesian, the new rooms are wonderful in the villa section. They even still smelled like new construction. Unfortunately, we were in the Pago Pago building with an annoying parking lot view. It was very noisy over there which impacted our experience staying at the Poly. Thankfully we were only there for 4 nights before transferring yet again to a 2 bedroom villa at the Animal Kingdom Lodge where we were meeting up with the Hasty Family for the final 4 nights of our vacation.

One of the things we love the most at Disney is the food. Afterall, we are starting a food truck business from inspiration at Disney. Throughout our trip we enjoyed some wonderful meals together at several restaurants including Yak and Yeti, Saana, Kona Cafe, and Morimoto Asia to name a few.

If you haven't noticed, we really like our sushi. Even Adah can chow down on a good plate of sushi.

Boba Tea without the Tea
At Morimota Asia, I ordered a boba tea not really knowing what it was. Who would have thought bobo tea turned out to be lots of fun for all of us. It is basically an iced tea but in the bottom are these slimy little fruit filled balls that burst in your mouth. After everyone sampled these little balls from my drink, the kids ordered their own boba tea without the tea.
Inbetween all of the dining, we enjoyed each of Disney's four parks: Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot, and Hollywood Studios. A fun game we play while at disney was to make funny faces on the rides that take your picture. Here are a few of those shots for you to enjoy.
I hope nobody gets sick!!
It's been a long day! Good Night!
We weren't trying to be funny on this one; its for real!

I think this is Riley's parent's first big girl roller coaster ride.
I saved the best for last. This is probably the funniest ride photo ever. I think Disney needs to use this one in a commercial. And no, I was not faking this one!
I have to end this vacation with what we enjoy most about Florida. The sunset!
