The Best/Worst 8 Dollars We Spent In Disney World

The Rainforest Cafe in Downtown Disney has this great marketing ploy where they basically force you to hang out in their gift shop while you wait to be seated for your meal. It's a really cool gift shop with lifesized animals that move, so it's actually not that bad of an experience. Anyway, we spent about 35 minutes there on our first night in Disney World, and Jackson fell in love with this hideous, remarkably real looking snake. I should add that Matt and I are both terribly disgusted by snakes, and my fear actually borders on a true phobia. So the fact that we purchased this creature for Jackson is a sign of how obsessed we are with our child (if the fact that we've devoted an entire blog to parenting him didn't already clue you in). Matt got the snake as a surprise for him while Jackson and I were being seated, and that animal did not leave his side for the next five days. It ate dinner with us, slept with us (or worse, slept curled up next to our bed in a horrifyingly realistic manner), and went on every ride that Disney has to offer. If you want to have a little fun with our Disney pictures, you can play a Where's Waldo type game with the snake. Here are few to get you started....

Luckily the snake has lost it's favored status once we got home, and frankly after spending 5 days in Disney with a realistic looking toy snake, I'm not as afraid of them anymore anyway.
