I will have to add pictures later for you all to see. We have just spent the most magical time with my sister, Karen and her daughter, Hannah at Disney in Florida. We arrived on the 4th and my sister and neice the next morning. We spent our first day (Jan 5th) at MGM. By the time we arrived back that night my sides were killing me. I don't think I have laughed that hard in a long time! I don't think I can even say what was so great about it. I just laughed and laughed all day. (oh ya, the kids had a good time too) We stopped and had dinner that night at Chef Mickey's where Goofy, Mickey, Minnie and Donald all come to your table and sign autographs and have their pictures taken with you. I had to take Brett to the bathroom and on our way back she ran ahead of me and when she came round to our table Donald Duck was near by. She ran past him and spanked his bum! (She says her had was just out because she was running and it was an accident)
The next day we decided to spend at the Magic Kingdom. Brett woke up in the morning and put on her Cinderella shirt and got a permanent marker from Andrew hoping to get Cinderella to sign her shirt. We had a great day. The line ups were not bad at all. Disney is a crowd moving machine. You never feel like you are jsut standing waiting in line. The worst line ups were 40 minutes but didn't feel like it. While waiting for the afternoon parade Darcy played with one of the security guards who bring games out for the kids. The guard then gave her a pass for all 7 of us to go to the front of the line for space mountain! (another part of the campaign) As the day was drawing to a close and we had not seen Cinderella I started to ask around
I am now full of admiration for the Disney machine.
We spent the next day split between Animal Kingdom and Blizzard Beach. Which were both great! The next day we got up packed up and headed north to Panama Beach (where the temerature was 20 degrees cooler than in Kissimmee!).
We are now staying with Bill and Donna (Andrew's parents). The kids have had a swim in the heated pool and I am up-dating you (or should I say y'all) .
I better go. I hope the weather in Ottawa is still mild for all of you!
