So I was watching America's Funniest Videos last week and they showed some clips of kids' reactions when their parents told them that they were gonna go to Disney. Some of them squealed and screamed with delight, some did crazy (but funny) things, and some even cried.
I was amazed at these kids' reactions, and then I realized that they probably live somewhere far (read: not in Florida or California) where Disney is a plane ride away.
So I turned to son and said, "Son, we're going to Disney tomorrow." And the response I got was "Ok. Can I wear my monkey shirt?" No hoopla or fanfare. Just asked if he can wear his monkey shirt.
Really, we are so blessed to be living in Florida, where we can just hop in our car and go to Disney (and its gajillion resorts/theme parks), Universal Studios, Busch Gardens, Sea World, Legoland, and whatever park you can think of.
So true to my word, we did go to Disney the next day to mark the end of our Spring Break. It was fun, and we enjoyed it.
Here are some pics that we took, mostly of the "Dreams Come True" parade. Just click for larger images.
Jiminy Cricket and Pinocchio. Now you better not drink what's in that keg, or you'll turn into a donkey like what happened to poor Pinocchio!
Jessie the Yodeling Cowgirl looked like she was digging for gold! ;-)
I really couldn't tell what Ariel was doing here... but Prince Eric seemed to be in-sync with her!
The genie, of course!
These were from the Magic Kingdom park. As mentioned above, Disney has a gajillion parks here in Florida. You can't really finish one in a day. My favorite is Epcot. Maybe someday I'll post some of our Epcot pics!
