As I type this, I am at T-12 hours from going “HOME”! My most favorite place in the world, and possibly the only geographical place I find real happiness, is Walt Disney World in Florida! Today, I begin the journey of my triumphant return as I drive to Orlando with the goal of reaching The Art of Animation Resort sometime the morning of December 4. This will bring about the celebration of my 53rd birthday, and Walt Disney’s 112th. I have been a Disney fan since I was a child. I always enjoyed the movies, nature films, and television shows growing up. And, when Walt Disney World opened up in October 1971, I wanted to go visit, but my mother would always say ‘no’. This year, I will also be celebrating my father’s first birthday in his absence. Dad went to heaven on Valentine’s Day this year, and I will be carrying him in my heart on December 5, also. I miss him, but know he will be with me on this trip! A trip he always wanted to take with us when my brother and I were kids.
It will be a busy week, as I only have five days in the parks! And, it will be topped by a seven hour backstage tour on my last day. I can’t wait to enjoy that birthday present to myself! I hope you will all join me on my adventures as I post pictures, blogs, and reviews here daily.
Until tomorrow, have a Blessed and Magical Day!!
