a magical week

















a baby cries. a mother scolds her son. an unexpected burst of laughter comes from a woman behind me. a boy my age sleeps in his seat. we whiz by full parking lots as i stand in the filled-to-capacity disney bus. grasping the pole in one hand and my phone in the other, it hits me that it's our last day at disney. at that very moment i feel so tired i just want to get back to our loved vacation home and crash. but the punch of sadness hits me too and threatens to knock me over on the inside. i love this place called disney world so much. so many others do too. many of the days we are there the parks overfill and it makes the news on living room television's across the country. it's my first trip to disney and i never want to leave. there's something about that character named mickey mouse that has everyone loving him. {they imitate him too with their cute little hats.} it's the magical feeling that's at every show, every thrilling ride, every place you turn...everywhere. i'm drawn to the friendly employees and get to ride with one of them on a roller coaster. he from Wisconsin, me from the south, we talk of our favorite rides and such. our safari tour guide will definitely be remembered fondly for his humor and friendliness (we even got a picture with him). my favorite rides are many, the same is for the shows and i know i didn't see a bad one. animal kingdom is my favorite park, maybe because i experienced my first roller coaster ride there and loved every minute of it. the week is over just as soon as it's begun. i can't count all the memories on two hands but i do count the seconds until i can go back and experience the magic once more.

giveaways for you

yay I am so glad you loved it and that you are back in blogging action! I still get so sad when I have to leave disney, it really is one of the happiest places on earth. I love that your dad (i'm guessing) is giving you bunny ears in one of the pics, tee hee!

I love DisneyWorld sooo much! I know exactly what you mean about being exhausted by the end of the trip, but then you're ready to go back next week :)

Looks like it was a fantastic trip! My favourite roller-coaster is Expedition Everest too!

I am glad you are still smiling after all the walking...running...galloping...
My stomach still gets a tickle thinking about the roller coasters...
Next time you visit the princesses, you must dress in your ball attire. ;)
I too felt myself becoming a little sad when leaving. Oh, it's tough to be a bug! Humm, I meant, it's tough to be a grown-up again. MOM

No problem--I get that a lot with the similarly- named
I'm going to Disney World in Feb! I grew up 4 hrs from there and went there a few times as a kid.
Disneyland, although smaller, is my fave though.

I love Disney. I came home for the holidays, and I am kicking myself for not having planned a trip to Orlando in. The safari and the Tower of Terror are my favorite. =]

Courtney B said...

Nana said...

Such a good description of your vacation. When I worked at AmSouth, we watched a movie in one of our employee meetings to teach us how to be better with our customer-service with our customers. Disney World was one of the top three for their good customer service, and from what you say, this is true.

Love you,

Nana
