Once upon a time, I visited Disney World in Florida.
I was about 10 (or 11?) years old at the time – it was an awkward age, okay? Just look at my photo and you’ll understand why.
I remember how much it rained that day so we were wearing those thin plastic covers that we bought at the park. We were visiting just for the day so we toured the park non-stop, seeing as many attractions and going on as many rides as humanly possible.
Fast forward many years later (not going to say how many!), and now my kids want to go to Walt Disney World.
Surprisingly, they are asking to go now – at the ages of 5 and 7. I have been waiting for the time to come for them to ask about Disney World and have been keeping “the secret” quiet.
I’ve been putting off a trip until the boys were older, so that they could walk the park themselves and actually remember it!
They’re into superheros and aliens and ninjas. Now imagine if there was a Marvel theme park! (I just so happened to Google it and there it is – a Marvel Superheros theme park is expected to pen this year in Dubailand!)
The boys love the Looney Tunes but they are Warner Bros. characters. doh! So I’ve always thought, why bother going to Disney if they only Toy Story and Cars (and now that they’re older, they don’t really as much anymore).
Well, they are now asking to go! All the time. Yup. My kids want to go to Disney World.
What kid wouldn’t, right?!
I have to admit, I’ve been sorta itching to go myself too. We’ve been visiting Florida every year and haven’t made the short drive to Orlando but it’s definitely on the radar. Lately, it’s been on my mind more often and I’m sort of blaming the hashtag on Twitter called #DisneySMMoms. Damn you Twitter!
So it looks like planning a trip to Disney World on our next visit to Florida is an absolute must… or else I’ll never hear the end of it.
