I can pretty much tell you that today is going to be the day I run around like a chicken with my head cut off. We're leaving for Disney in the morning (as in 4 AM) and will be in the car with a 5 and a 2 year old for 12 hours. Oh joy! But once we get there.... It'll be heaven.
At the moment I think I'm more excited than my children about this trip. I've spent months planning it - researching the best place to buy tickets, the best (and cheapest) places to eat in the parks, buying them pins on ebay so they can participate in the pin trading (something new at the parks since the last time I've been)... I've been to Disney more times than I can count (my grandmother lives about an hour away) but knowing that this time I get to experience it through my girls' eyes is somehow more exciting.
I don't think it's an accident that this year is The Year of a Million Dreams at Disney. They're giving away prizes, nights in the castle suite, all sorts of things to make dreams come true. Disney has always been known as a magical place, a place where anything and everything can happen. This is not only a vacation. It's also a chance to remember that magical things happen everyday and that you don't need a national conglomerate to make your dreams come true.
Instigator - wishing everyone a magical week!
