As cynical as I can get, I'm always taken with the mood at that place. Mark and I usually remark, while sauntering down Main Street, "This really is the Happiest Place on Earth!" and are frequently surprised at how well everyone gets along and how much fun we have.
It was just what the doctor ordered. Ben had three days mostly out of brace, which is a vacation in and of itstelf. All of us practically went into a diabetic coma (barely any protein to be found there, but oh the carbohydrates!). And much, much fun was had.
Our last day there we had an informal treasure hunt. Some of the things on the list:
- A tantrum before 2 pm.
- A princess decked out from head to toe.
- A silly nickname stitched into Mickey Mouse ears.
- A group all in the same shirt or jacket or uniform.
- Matching mom and daughter or dad and son costumes.
- 3 disgruntled employees, I mean, "Cast Members".
- 4 different Churro stands.
I'll leave you with some images of our trip. And since I was the photographer (of course) you'll see I don't seem to have been there...but Harry's promised to Photoshop me in!
A twirl on the classic teacups
Made a new friend on the Grizzly River Rafting ride (Olivia from Athens, Ohio)
It's great to go on California Screamin' with your friend!
Another trip down the Grizzly River. This is before.
This is during.
This is not quite wet enough.
Is this wet enough?
It's a Small World at night. Beautiful. (It is still decked out in it's Christmas splendor. Toby commented: "I really think they should consider Chanukah. I mean, not everybody is Christian!")
Toby got picked to be in the Jedi Training Academy with a Jedi Master Mace Windu look-alike.
Darth Vader arrives.
Padawan Toby's fight with Darth Maul.
Looking pretty happy after his battle!
Oh, wait! Here I am! Can't you recognize me? I'm the one in the middle!
