Highlights of Most Magical Moments of Our 7th Trip to Walt Disney World

Returning from a Walt Disney World vacation can be a lot of work. . . unpacking, distributing gifts, laundry, reading newspapers, catching up on sleep, and editing photos—both your own and Photopass. So, I’m taking a break from editing Photopass photos to share the highlights of the most magical moments of our 7th trip to Walt Disney World. Here they are:

• The boy’s stroll for coffee. (This one is hilarious—more later.)

• Riding Splash Mountain twice in a row (Fastpass!), walking by the same people in line, and getting completely soaked! Then being able to purchase both photos side by side as 5 X 7’s!

• The boy wanting to ride Haunted Mansion, consoling another guest while in the line, and then covering his ears the entire time in the Doomobile. 

• Topping the husband’s score in Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin and Toy Story Mania—he had the high score the first time!

• The boy riding Goofy’s Barnstormer by himself, including navigating the queue. He is growing up!

• Fireworks photos!

• Watching the boy in Germany at the train garden almost talk his way into the garden to fix the broken trolley.

• Trying out two new restaurants, ordering authentic food, and having the boy try bites and ask for more. The husband would categorize this as “taking” more.

• Fastpass!

• Test Track and Soarin’!

• Snow on Main Street, U.S.A.

• Birthday cupcakes.

• Visiting with other families.

• Spending time together as family and creating memories.

There are more magical moments than not so magical—another reason we keep going back. I was reading Mouseplanet yesterday and several readers had written about how grateful they were that Walt sat on the bench in the park watching his girls ride a carousel so many years ago and dreamed of a place where families could play together. That article resonated with me. I, too, am grateful that Walt dreamed big and made his dreams come true!
