Peter Pan and Wendy, Handy Manny, Ariel, Pocohontas, Chip 'n Dale, Belle, Mickey and Minnie, Daisy and Donald, Buzz and Woody, the Little Einsteins -- wow! These are just a few of the characters we hung out with at Walt Disney World last week. It was so much fun.
It's so cool to spend time at such a magical place -- especially when it includes grandkids. We rode the Magical Express to our home resort at Old Key West. Ate in Germany in Epcot, at the Whispering Canyon at the Wilderness Lodge, had Tonga Toast (it's legendary -- just google it) at Kona at the Polynesian Resort -- and much more. Even had a hot dog at Casey's on Main Street U.S.A. at the Magic Kingdom.
We visited the Hall of Presidents on 9/11 -- and people broke into spontaneous applause as the 43 presidents were introduced, during Lincoln's Gettysburg address, when George W. Bush stood with the firefighters in NYC after the bombing -- it was so very patriotic. Flags at Disney World were at half mast that day -- as they should be.
The farm and my animals were in the capable hands of Denise and Gary and company -- and all was good when we got back.
If there was ANY drawback to the trip it would be the WEATHER in FL. It was 94 -- with 84% humidity one of the days we were there. That is a heat index of 134 in the SHADE -- adding 15 degrees for the sun. I almost "went down" like a llama with meningeal worm. It was awful. But I lived to fight another day.
It's nice to take a break sometimes, isn't it? The pix tell just a touch of the story of fun. Could those grandkids BE any cuter?
