"Salagadoola mechicka boola bibbidi-bobbidi-boo, Put 'em together and what have you got bibbidi-bobbidi boo (Cinderlla) So our princess storytelling lunch was pretty cool overall despite that "other thing"... We were treated like princesses at the Royal Akershus Hall in Norway in the World's Showcase at Epcot. The girls were all dressed up & looked so adorable! They all had their autograph books and upon entering the Royal Hall, we had a photo opt with Belle. The pictures that were professionally taken are pretty stunning. We were told by the time our lunch was over our pics would be delivered in a frame to our table. Lunch consisted of a 3 entree meal; appetizers from a buffet which included smoked salmon, shrimp, fresh salmon, salad bar, deli meat & antipasto bar, with cheese etc. I ... read more

"Once in awhile, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale." ~ It's warm today, sunny with a light breeze, a zippidy-doo-da day. We were up early to get to Epcot and then tonight will do Magic Kingdom; it's open till 11 and of course the Wishes Nighttime Spectacular/Christmas fireworks. We'll probably just take the monorail right in MK from Epcot, then circle back for a double fireworks show. Epcot is a bit quieter today and to see it all during the day is fantastic. There are lots of street shows today in each country; I just saw an Italian juggler that was out of this world. Right now we have stopped in Italy overlooking the lake to enjoy lunch and a beverage. For those that love a glass of ... read more

Hiya Toots! Aw phooey! (Memorable Donald Duck sayings!) Holy Donald Duck we're having so much fun it should be illegal! Well for the most part it's been a great time, but holy shmoly, since we got here we keep marching along almost like programmed toy soldiers. Every day we wake up early, run into the walls, have breakfast, pack, brush our teeth and get in the van & hit the parks, sometimes 2 parks in 1 day. We seem to take a lickin but keep on tickin but you do feel like you are running on empty some days. Tired (getting up early), sore feet, sore hips (even the kids!). I swear to god I woke up the other morning and saw what looked to be a reflection of Mickey Mouse through the curtains and I ... read more

"Remember always let your conscience be your guide". ~ Jiminy Cricket Well the adventure continues (insert Mickey Mouse ears here!) We are having a wonderful time and Al & I talked about this last night that it's mostly because we're all together as a family, just doing fun family things all day long (And so far no major meltdowns, no fights, it's almost like we've all been hit with a "happy stick"). And Linda & Henry (if you read this) what a great trip with you and your family! We are gelling together; kids are on the ball, up an at 'em early, packing their own stuff (sunglasses, autograph books, snacks) and we are at the door ready to go every morning at pretty well the designated time. It sure cuts down on stress by not ... read more

Here together, friends forever. Some things were just meant to be and that's you and me.Winnie the Pooh (That's for you A - if you're reading my blog honey! Epcot IllumiNATIONS that I have been raving about was, drum roll please...with all the superlatives I can muster: amazing, fantastical, incredible, super-duper, astounding, knock-your-socks off, thrill of a lifetime show. We were lucky to get into a lakeside restaurant to eat at, let alone have an amazing view of the light show because we did not book a reservation in advance. Once we ordered our dinner, we were escorted outside to the pub’s VIP area to view the show. How lucky is that? I was looking for our lucky horseshoe but decided against it given where you might find it?! During Holidays Around the World at Epcot, ... read more

Arithmetic is being able to count up to 20 without having to take off your shoes. Mickey Mouse Epcot. WOW! One of THE most stunning places to come upon. You drive up and see this huge 180 foot tall spaceship earth sphere at the entrance to the park which takes your breath away. Al remembers seeing a picture of it as a kid and he COULD NOT believe he was standing under it, finally after all those years. (Awww Al!) And at night it's even more impressive if you can believe. OMG. This place is mesmerizing once you walk through the gates. For those that have never been here, you have a pass card that you scan and you also scan your index finger (biometrics at its finest) & it has to match up to gain ... read more

If you can dream it, you can do it. Walt Disney So we're finally here in Orlando and settled into our resort Liki Tiki and I've got to say, it's pretty darn nice. It has been a loooong day to say the least. A shout out to to Sue for getting this motley crew to the airport. Thank you! We were going to leave our vehicles at the airport but the idea of arriving back at the airport to a snow/frost covered van at midnight gave us shivers (for many reasons), and given we're 11 people, we'd need a line up of cabs just for luggage, so thank you Sue for getting us there. It's never fun to be the one left behind :( "If you have nothing in life but a good friend, ... read more

"As soon as I saw you, I knew an adventure was going to happen". Winnie the Pooh After only a few hours of sleep I roused the group early to get up and at 'em. We had breakfast & coffee in our condo, packed a great lunch/drinks in our cooler (which we stored in a locker) and headed down the magical highway to Magic Kingdom. (I'd rather have a nice homemade lunch than spend $100 on hot dogs & fries). Excellent drive there, no traffic, got a close parking spot, and then looked around eerily over my shoulder thinking to myself, "What is wrong with this picture"? It seemed way too easy & way too good to be true to get here without any issue at all. It was the beginning of a fabulicious day! We ... read more

Laughter is timeless. Imagination has no age and dreams are forever. Walt Disney After years of discussing when we'd take our gals to Disney World Orlando, without having to mortgage the house, we're leaving tomorrow (Thurs) till the 19th! (PS due to a system upgrade my list of emails was somewhat erased; if you've gotten this email & don't want it, unsubscribe (and sorry) as I imported emails over. Quite sure my dentist does not want to hear about our Disney trip :) So you may ask, "What lunatic would pick just before Christmas to go away given how busy it is preparing for the holidays?" Guilty as charged. These lunatics got such a diggity-dog amazing deal that we couldn't pass it up. Apparently any time of year is fun to visit Disney World, but Christmas ... read more
