We left the beautiful Casa Monica and headed straight to Orlando. Brian took the day off and we ventured to the land of high price and ridiculous spending- Magic Kingdom.
95 degrees in Florida is only hot when you are at Magic Kingdom surrounded by 10,000 of your closest friends. I wasn’t complaining because I heard my Northern friends were in a pressure cooker hitting temps well above 100 from Virginia up to Yankee territory.
Elizabeth has a been a die hard Winnie The Pooh fan since birth and the fascination hasn’t stopped. She selected Magic Kingdom for the sole purpose of meeting up with him once again.
Both parents agreed that it was clearly worth ninety dollars to book the character lunch with the Pooh characters not just to meet them, but to get some reprieve from the heat in an air conditioned room. Money well spent.
I realized at that point I will be decorating a nursery at my home for her children in Pooh decor. Where most kids were younger at the lunch, Liz was full on mesmerized with the chance to meet her favorite characters for the umpteen time.
I have to admit it was a tad bit odd to be there only just with her. We kept saying “What would life be like with one child?” It was perfect being able to have just one on one time but realized that she quickly missed being surrounded with the usual brood from home who spoil her rotten. Each of the kids have their own unique relationship with her. Her and Noah are simply best friends and I think she missed the friendship that they share being close in age.
We loved spoiling her rotten.
We also found that we weren’t so rushed around the park having to hit every single ride since she wasn’t so concerned about the teen rides so to speak. Plus the heat just zapped everything out of you.
By nine o clock, she was trashed and we found that we were talking her into staying to watch the electrical light parade etc.
All a sudden Brian and I hit a second a wind and we were headed to Peter Pan, she was begging us to leave while 100,000 people watched the fireworks in the park, we quietly floated to the parking lot.
What a perfect day with our youngest daughter. I hope there are many more one on one adventures with her.
I am not sure how Walt did it or continues to do it? But I am a big pushover for anything Disney. I love the magic of Disneyworld on every level.
We listed off all of the experiences we have had at Disney with our children and just marveled about how fast the time has past.
I think these memories will always stay with us. Time is moving so quickly and you simply can’t slow it down. Life is so magical on every level!
