“Got to spend some much-needed family time recently in Orlando!!! We rode lots of rides, ate lots of sugar, smiled a million smiles, and made a million memories!!! These years, with our boys, we’ll never get back…to see the wonder and excitement on their faces is priceless! We already can’t wait to go back! Thanks, @waltdisneyworld for existing!” Underwood posted on her Instagram account on Wednesday.

Underwood rarely shares photos of her two young sons, Isaiah, 6, and Jacob, 2, but she was only too happy to share a photo of her little ones and their cousins enjoying the magic of the Dumbo ride at Magic Kingdom.

Underwood’s Instagram post prompted comments from fans and followers of the Billboard Top 200 regular. One Cast Member, coronas_royal_table even commented about just thinking about serving Underwood and her family.

“I just started working at Be Our Guest! I totally just had a fangirl moment imagining that I got to cook for you. Hope you enjoyed your vacation!” the Cast Member posted.

The thread of comments underneath the Instagram post was filled with fans tagging one another, especially if they had friends or family who were in the parks at the same time. Many were asking, “Did you see Carrie?”

A few of Underwood’s Instagram followers were in the parks at the same time as the mom of two and served to clear up questions about bodyguards and paparazzi for followers who weren’t in the parks at the time.

“She had a guide with her, we walked right past them by Big Thunder Mountain. In a very public space,” one follower posted.

“They were VIP Guests so they didn’t have to stand in line. [That’s] why they got to ride so many rides,” another follower posted.

Hmmm. We wonder if they had to pay for Lightning Lane and Genie+ or if they walked on. What do you think?

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
