Small confession: I've got myself a little bit 'o love for Disney movies. And by "a little bit", I mean it's borderline obsessive. I'd watch a Disney movie I've seen a bajillion times over a new movie with "real" people in it any day. And like any good mother, I'm trying to push my obsessions onto my child. Completely normal and acceptable, right? In an effort to do this, Sandy and I took M on a little trip to Disney World...you know, the place where all your dreams come true.
The plane ride there was effortless, to say the least. Literally, probably my best experience flying, ever, which is surprising because something bad always happens when I fly. Always. M played on his tablet the majority of the time and Sandy and I were able to get some reading done.
Tip: If you can't spring for the Fast Pass, definitely hit up the Magic Kingdom in the evening - especially during the parade and fireworks show. The lines for the rides are super short because everyone is at the parade. And you can see the fireworks from basically everywhere in the park.
Aside from the awesome architecture and props in each little "country", I was most impressed by Disney's ability to sculpt plants into characters. They're all throughout the park and the amount of detail put into them is amazing. I can only imagine the amount of maintenance they require.
All in all, meltdowns included, the trip was a lot of fun. M and I are so lucky to have John and Sandy in our lives and this trip most certainly wouldn't have been possible without them. I can only imagine how well it would have gone if I had been there with M on my own...Ha.
