I know I haven't posted in 2 weeks, but I *did* say I would be back SOMETIME after we got home from Disney World... LOL! Seriously, we have been "recovering." :D Ok, so it was a good trip. Really, it was. But when I was thinking about how I would blog about it, I realized that really, this post could go 2 ways: REALLY negative or REALLY Positive. For example,
*Orlando was experiencing unusually hot weather (mid-90's) and 90-100% humidity while we were there -- BUT HEY! WE WERE IN DISNEY WORLD!!!!
*It RAINED every day we were there -- and not just an afternoon heating shower, either -- pouring, drenching rain for hours on end -- BUT we just donned ponchos and slogged our way through the parks anyway! (we're starting to dry out now)
*Our flight was delayed 5 times going and 6 times coming home and Raisha threw up IN the airport -- BUT we arrived safely and had a good flight and they didn't lose a single piece of our luggage!!
*We didn't get to ride Expedition Everest (raining), Rockin' Rollercoaster (maintenance), or Spaceship Earth (upgrade) -- BUT we DID ride Pirates of the Caribbean about 50 times and It's a Small World 30 times and Natasha and I rode Space Mountain until we nearly passed out. Oh, and we sat in the FRONT on Splash Mountain and can I just say, wearing a poncho does NOTHING to protect you from getting soaked if you are riding in the front!!! It was a blast!
And did I mention, we were in DISNEY WORLD???!! Bottom line?
It was an AWESOME trip and I thank God for giving us the opportunity to go and the many blessings we received as a family along the way... We are already planning our next trip to the "Happiest (Soggiest??) Place On Earth" for sometime in 2009... Here are just a few pics from our trip:
I took over 200 pictures, but I'll spare you and not post them ALL here... I will have more up in a separate post later, I promise! =)
PS: No, Raisha did not get to wear her Minnie Mouse costume OR her Cinderella dress to the Princess dinner at Akershus (sp?) because it was pouring rain and I didn't want them to get ruined... she's really too young to care anyway but she did LOVE seeing all the princesses!!
