Snow White was very pleased to hear that we not only have her movie, but also a dress very much like the one she wears. Oh, she was just so sweet.
After we saw the princesses and Mary Poppins, we ducked into the bathroom and ditched the dress and put on a LULU's shirt and some shorts and got to the business of riding some thrilling rides. We did about all of them, but the ones I remember in particular were Maelstrom, the space stuff, and Test Track. We did a few of the tamer ones too, which was nice in between the walking and waiting.

Today we will be doin' an Irish jig to the Magic Kingdom to have breakfast with Chef Mickey and then on to all sorts of adventures.
I'm up early .....drinking coffee and still doing laundry. The children are still sleeping like pigs in sunshine, and Pumba (dad) is in there rolled up like a burrito in ALL the covers. Hopefully they will be well rested when they get up and be all smiles.
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO SARAH AND JOHN!

It was so wonderful to visit, and it certainly wasn't long enough, and WAY too long in coming!
One thing that the internet is exceptional for is keeping in touch with all the tumbleweeds that you know. Because of it, I can keep up with so many of all of you.....many almost daily. Sometimes it is just a quick FW: , but no matter what comes, it means that we're all still making the effort to connect. I think that is so cool.
Anyway, our little family rode that thing and had a blast. There really wasn't time to visit Dinoland with the long waits to ride, and we missed the parade, but I can't think of anything else I would have rather been doing than being right there with those kids getting the living daylights scared out of me. The picture when we were on the coaster was hideous..my hair was standing ON END and I had my hand on the boychild's knee....I guess I was going to hold him in the car should he start to fall out . Both of them were talking a mile a minute when we came off of it- wanting to get back in line to do it again.
Well...everyone else is asleep and I am still up drinking coffee and doing laundry. The other half of our entourage came here to swim and eat dinner ( Subway - It was closeby) and left some of their laundry too, so I may be up a little while. Tomorrow we go to the Magic Kindom and have breakfast with Mickey Mouse at Chef Mickey's. I can hardly wait.
My tiny dancer was all about clapping and jumping until this part of the show. When the ballet began, she stopped moving altogether and just stared at the girl playing Zazu. She reached over and touched me on the leg and said, "Mama.....you know, someday, that could be me. "
Well, she's right. There is really no limit to what someone can do if they put their mind to it. I hope she does it if that is what she wants to do. I can see her being a cast member here. I can also see brother being an Imagineer, designing all sorts of exciting things.
The Lion King show was about a 20 minute version of the broadway show as far as the costuming and such goes. It is definately something that you don't want to miss if you get the chance to visit Disney. Our girl was right on the front row and ready to volunteer ( thanks Sarah!) and they picked her, or at least this monkey who kept winking at her did. She had so much fun and we really were tickled that she was invited to participate. Our star is the one in the long pink tee shirt and glasses.
