Thoughts on Disney

As my girls and I start to feel the thrill of an approaching trip to Disney World I reflect on how many people don't "Get It". The Pell that brings us back to the Kingdom every year. The glee that you see on our faces and the little flicker of sparkle they see in our eyes after returning home. Of course I know we are all different, and different things make each of us happy. But how to explain what it is that makes me and my family so very happy there?

Well it's not really possible to put into words or capture the magic in an explanation. But let me put it like this, every inch of the place is themed and beautified to an unreal degree, the cast members(all of the!) are polite and go out of their way to be helpful and kind, the rides and atmosphere is kept family friendly while still delighting you with heart pumping adventures. When a child drops a Popsicle and someone runs to your aide with a free voucher to replace it... you know the place is different.
Maybe it's the ties to my childhood, maybe it's the constant smile on my children's faces.. and even my husbands face... but this place makes me happy. And since I get made fun of for being too nice... maybe I just feel finally at home :)

Here's a peek at some of the fabulous decorating they do for Halloween at the kingdom!

When my grandchildren made their first visit to Disneyland last summer, they never stopped smiling! Can't wait till we all go again, but not on a Saturday in the summer like last year:)
Have fun with your family!

We always plan our trips for the lowest crowds possible. That tends to put us there in the fall. The heat is still almost unbearable, but the crowds are nothing. Literally we didn't wait 20 minutes on anything last trip fall.
