Last Wednesday, Brian had meetings in Orlando and St. Augustine. I was supposed to go down with him alone and do the two nights…you know a little get-away. Right at the last minute, I did the classic mom thing and said….”Let’s take two kids!”
I had already spent Sunday and Monday in North Carolina at the Biltmore, and I was just feeling like one day alone was all I could take….I have to be surrounded by children! Crazy I know! But when he is working and I am alone…I much rather have the kids with me. Odd since I haven’t had a day off in ages.
I can’t resist Magic Kingdom during low season even if it is for one day! And Elizabeth will still be 100 years old and love her Pooh Bear!
Brian scooted off to work and joined us in between meetings in Orlando and St. Augustine. We hit the new Fantasyland rides and walked on to many of the rides with a 10 minute or less wait.
The crazy thing about Florida last week is although the weather boasted a 74 degrees on paper, in reality it was 57 degrees and we were sorely unprepared. It wasn’t really snowing there, Disney just flies fake snow for the Christmas celebration.
We even had to go back to our hotel to gather the sweatshirts and pants for the kids.
We enjoyed watching Cinderella’s castle light up in a million lights.
Let me tell you what, going to Disney parks for one day is financially bad deal. Unless you go for more than three days you are simply breaking the bank. Disney is only a value when you have bought multiple day tickets. If not you are full price and there is no getting out of it!
I try not to think about it in financial terms and focus just on the magic of the park. We only have a couple of years left and then the magic, well….just won’t be as magical.
Also, I wonder what our family would be like if we didn’t have two boys and two girls? It is like we have an older family and a younger family.
What a great day with my little peeps in the land of Micky.
