A five hour drive from Miami (with almost psychically, uncanny abilities to avoid the unmarked police cars), a night in a motel, a pre-dawn start...all for Mickey Mouse and the Disney Princesses!!
But seriously, my daughter's face was wonderful when we met Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and Ariel. Wow. Me and DH were quite impressed too--DH really liked Ariel... hmmm
First up was the carosel--absolutely gorgeous. Then Dumbo, Ariel and Mini's House.
It was all brilliantly done. We went on Splash Mountain with DD, who was not scared at all and went on twice...but that was the only big ride she could go on because of height restrictions. We did do the Tea Cups and they were pretty darned fast :) But she hated Pirates of the Carribean, really hated it (whereas my monster loved it and broke his sword 30 seconds after getting hold of it!).
If you have never been (we hadn't) it is much more economic and sensible to spend a week there. We only saw a tiny fraction of the Magic Kingdom and I lose count of how many other parks there are in the complex. There is so much to do in that part of Florida with Sea World not far away and not to mention all the space stuff.
Anyway..enough of that. They were filming the Christmas Day Parade that day (in the zillion degree heat) and so if you watch it you might just see us having fun :)
Thanks Walt & Mickey :)
