I'd Rather be Here
That castle in the background? I have to admit that the sight of it, the whole package of Main Street, the castle, Disney, taking my children at a really great age, being with the people I love dearly, that package broke forth in tears and I got choked up, right there on Main Street.
I loved being at a place where a grown woman can wear Mickey Mouse ears and skip down the street with her eight year old daughter and no one thinks it strange. I love being at a place where her eight year old daughter thinks she (Mom) still might be cool. I love being at a place where silliness is OK and you can be the paparazzi chasing down Buzz Lightyear and Cinderella. (I do not love being at a place where rude people are also welcome) I love being at a place where most people are smiling most of the time.
I want to leave this gray, dreary, depressing place and go back.
(For Disney World visitation schedules, you should look to The Unofficial Guide to Disney World. They have hour by hour schedules in the back. Though I did significant research into each ride and we skipped those we didn't think worthy of our time. I kind of mushed three schedules into one. Plenty of fun for the grownups, but nothing too terrifying for my children who don't like "dark" themes. Fast scary is OK, creepy scary is not.)
