What I learned at Disney World:

1. It is perfectly acceptable for 55 year old men to wear Mickey Mouse Ears.
2. All Disney characters wear wigs--including those that are just dancers.
3. Ariel is stacked.
4. Disney World is TOO expensive.
5. Every girl can be a princess.
6. Chuck E Cheese is where a kid can be a kid, but Disney World is where an adult can be a kid (a kid that makes money, that is).
7. Disney actors are CHEEEEEEEESY (and this is coming from someone who would LOVE to play Belle on Stage)!
8. Apparently it is cool to go for your honeymoon and wear Minnie ears with a veil.
9. Disney World rides are just a big ad and all the same (the ones you can take kids on, anyway).
10. Why ever go anywhere else in the world when you can see it all at Disney? Safaris, China, Norway, Mexico, England, Germany...it's all just the same at Disney World (I hope you know I am kidding).

We did have a fabulous time--the kids were great on the plane, and we didn't have any breakdowns at the park even though they didn't have naps and we got home late. We ate breakfast with the princesses, met the Little Einsteins, rode TONS of rides, and saw a plethora a shows! Boo's favorite rides were the White Water (she got the wettest both times she went on) and Goofy's Roller Coaster. Little Man wasn't so sure about the roller coaster (he only wanted to ride once--no crying he just said he didn't want to go again), but he loved everything else. Thanks to Disney World, our son has his first sword. He carried that thing everywhere. What are they TEACHING him?

Now, it's back to reality, and on to teaching seminary at 6am. What a shock to the system.

Sounds like you guys had a ton of fun! I'd like to go to Disney World someday, but I guess that requires having kids right?!?

As for seminary... ridiculous. Still ridiculous. Good luck!

Oh, the indoctrination of all things Disney. My kids have never even been to Disneyland, but they still talk like they have. We'll go someday!

I'm with you on how expensive that place is, but my kids are still talking about it. Just today Jacob said, "Why didn't we see Daisy when we went to Disneyworld." He later told me that she must have been in New York City. I'm still waiting to see a little baby bump.

Oh how fun!! Lauren is watching the slide show over and over...guess it's time to go back! I never could get over how REAL it is for the kids, there's nothing like it!

Sam said...

I am still amazed by how well-behaved the kids were, even when the Peter Pan ride broke down and we waited 15 minutes in the dark, suspended 20 feet off the ground.

Yea! Looks like you guys had soo much fun. I love it. We're going to Disneyland in October and I hope we do as well! I can't wait. I'm a little worried about Sean and his naps. That kid asks for naps and doesn't always do so well without one. Glad you guys got to go Spain and more on your trip!

So fun! My kids keep asking when they get to go. Greg's sister Michelle and my sister live in Southern CA, so we're going to make a trip out there next summer to see them and visit DisneyLand. That's wonderful that they did well there.

Ok, little man looks like a Disney character himself. He is just beautiful with those big eyes. And as for seminary, I might have actually GRADUATED if someone like you or Sam taught me.
