We're going to Disney World*!!!!
|And yes, I made good friends with Jasmine (of course), as the parade route went right past our backstage office every day.|
|Graduation! It was bittersweet.|
So we're going! It falls almost exactly in between our birthdays, so we'll take advantage of that celebration, and heck, our anniversary is coming up too, why not throw that in the celebration mix? I couldn't possibly let an entire decade pass in between visits, and I'm so excited to expand Julie's experience with Disney theme parks. She was initially a little hesitant that anything could possibly top Disneyland, but I have explained that Walt Disney World doesn't have to replace the original park, it just enhances it, and helps you appreciate the great and unique things about both coasts even more. It'll take her a minute to get her bearings in the wider pathways of the Magic Kingdom and in front of the much bigger castle (and "WHERE," she will demand, "is the Matterhorn??"), but she'll get the hang of it in no time. I think she's going to adore Animal Kingdom with all its many creatures, and we'll surely stop by the UK in Epcot for some fish & chips.
Another amazing coincidence is that we will be there when Cami and her family swing by on their way to their exciting Disney cruise, so we can meet up in the Magic Kingdom! I'm going to have to start putting together a tentative itinerary and look into dining and park schedules and hours.
...Is it 30 April yet?
* I know the official name is Walt Disney World (the training of proper terminology was drilled in us pretty hard), but that's the traditional saying, so I went with it.
