Well we did it! Er, SHE did it. My baby girl danced down the famous Main Street of the Happiest Place on Earth known as Walt Disney World! She's the one looking at the camera with the flying ponytail and yellow ribbon! They were exhausted by the time it was over!!
Needless to say we were some happy parents to watch our 40 dancers come down Main Street with Cinderella's Castle in the background. Awesome memories! Thank you ALL that helped make this day possible. I wish everyone could have been there with us for this experience.
We arrived around 3pm on Wednesday to the resort, checked in and headed to the Magic Kingdom for a few rides, eats and the parade and fireworks. I never get tired of those fireworks over the Castle.
The lights at night change to wonderful colors on this castle, sometimes it looks like ICE, other times the music is playing a wicked queen theme and the colors are just as eerie. Still beautiful.
Since we had park hopper passes, we jumped around to Epcot, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, back to the Magic Kingdom a couple of times, and the girls went to Typhoon Lagoon....I stayed behind for that one!
Tom....well, he joined us the first night for a couple of hours; then he made it to the Parade on Friday, alone. We didn't spend any quality, family time together that's for sure. Because we checked out of the resort on Monday, he went with us to Hollywood Studios to watch the Indiana Jones show. Then it began to rain, again, and we started our trek home.
Rain, again.....yes. THANK GOD it rained Thursday. The temps were horrible - you could sweat just thinking about going outside. Friday the temps came down about 5-7 degrees and was a bit overcast, so the kids had a better day for dancing, plus there were sprinkles here and there and an afternoon 15 minute rain storm. Sat & Sun & Mon were the same.....welcome to Summer in the South!!
Thoroughly enjoyed my time with a family that we were with.....Swanno/Morris. We had rooms side by side, traveled down together caravan style, hit the parks together and .........ahhhhhhhhh! I even got to go to FRANCE for lunch.....I've always wanted to do that, jet off to France or Italy for lunch or dinner. This time though I walked....in Epcot....while the dancers were enjoying a Gala dinner party in a private section of the park, with buffet style eating, a DJ and fun, fun, fun.
I'm ready to go back! But not till it's cooler. I like it there in December - I'm spoiled that way. Next time I'll spend more time in Epcot touring the world!
