Ahhhh, the long awaited trip. The one that you plan and plan for ages and then in a blink of an eye, it's over. Yep...said, but true. Taking my 2 kids to Disney was something I wanted to do for so long, but just couldn't scrape of the cash. Just as well I soon came to find out. Selma, 9 and Nick 5 could only handle just so much before the pooped out. But the great kids they are complained very little.....though Nick kept moaning about water rides. Really? It's Florida and 90 degrees and you don't want to go on a water ride? * Rolls eyes * Ahh the joy of parenthood. All in all DisneyWorld was wonderful. There were some changes since I'd last been ( 11 yrs. ago )Park Hoppers are a must if you plan to hit all the parks. And we hit a park each day. The highlight of the trip was Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom. This special event starts after the park closes, followed by a series of Disney goodies like Trick-or-Treating, a Halloween themed parade and an amazing villian/Halloween themed fireworks show. Tickets cost extra, but if you plan on visiting in October and have kids, I highly recommend going. Disney never fails to disappoint. We hope to return soon...and this time expand our horizons to include SeaWorld & Universal Studios.
