Magical Memories (Disney LO #40)


Disney Simple font
I have always liked the Disney characters, but that is not to say that I was crazy for them. However, once you get to the park  and immerse yourself in the experience, it is hard NOT to fall in love with Disney World. There is so much to enjoy there: the movies, the fantasy-come-true characters,  the thrills and rides...
I am so glad that I took the kids at just the right ages (8 and 9) while they are still able to fully enjoy the magic that Disney offers.

Fire and Ice Festival

Yesterday, I took the kids to the Fire and Ice Festival in town.  It is a fun event for the kids because they get to see ice sculptures, sled dogs, re-enactments by the loyalist to Great Britain during the civil war, animals rescued by the wildlife ctr., they get to ride on real firetrucks and even saw fire eaters!

I will only post a few for today; the rest will be posted tomorrow. You will not want to miss tomorrow's picts as you will get to see the fireeaters in action! 16089

May I Have Your Autograph? (Disney LO #34)

Hollywood Studios, Sept. 16, 2010
As we were walking down Main Street taking in the sights and sounds of our surroundings, we saw Mickey’s Blue Magical hat. Off to the side, we spotted Minnie Mouse posing for pictures. Kaylie and I quickly made our way to get in the long line. The park’s photographer took a few pictures of Kaylie and I together with Minnie, and I also asked Minnie’s assistant to take a few photographs with my own camera.

All Star Sports Resort (Disney LOs #28 & 29)

The resort had a decent size pool that was open from 8am to midnight. The minute that Kaylie and Liam saw it they were really excited, especially Kaylie. The problem was that we would spend all day at the parks and would return to the hotel close to midnight. Another problem was that the kids wanted to exit the parks early every day for the sole purpose of playing in the pool. After spending all summer at Hurricane Harbor @ Six Flags back home, I wasn’t about to waste time at the pool. However, I did promise the kids that I would take them to the pool on our last day, 9/20. We were there at 8:00 a.m.(the only ones there!) so the kids had the pool all to themselves.

Gnomes in Norway (Disney LO#27)

At the Norway Pavilion we went into a shop across from the Akershus Royal Banquet Hall where we discovered an enormous 10-foot gnome. Of course, I had to take photos. Sept, 17, 2010
