Where dreams come true...

Spent a day at Disney World this week with Tracey and Aaron. We had a blast! The hubs couldn't come due to prior commitments - Boo! Anywho... My favorite part of the day was riding a car in the Haunted Mansion (in A/C) HA! It was like a bazillion degrees in Orlando but we managed ;)

When I see Cinderella's Castle, it's like words cannot describe the feeling. It's so magical and truly earns the name "Magic Kingdom". Here I am living the kid in me! Yup, I'm a nut that way.

Aaron & Tracey posin'!

During the Disney parade, we were able to snap a few of these shots.

Leaning on a garbage can here (yes, I know... blaaah!). The top of this can was probably hot enough to cook an egg. No joke! It burnt my hand. Who knows why I'm smiling?? OUTCH!

Saw these funny elephants along the jungle cruise.

In front of Minnie's home!

The majority of our time was spent at Magic Kingdom, however, we did venture off that night. We went to Downtown Disney. Here I am doing "The Electric Slide" with a group of random people. I love to dance so when I saw a crowd hoppin', I jumped right in!

"One hop this time"
"Sliiiiide to the right"

Everybody clap your hands....

...with Mickey & Minnie

My date for the evening since the hubs couldn't join us lol!! Thanks Buzz ;)


FYI: As we walked around Magic Kingdom, we kept smelling amazing vanilla waffle cone odors. It was scent from a machine. "Smellitzers" are scattered throughout various Disney stores and they release candy like aromas that are artificial just outside the doorway or even in rides. This is all part of tempting guests in. Darn thing worked on us. We walked right in and bought cotton-candy, candy apples and ice cream. Yum!

T'was a M-A-G-I-C-A-L day!!!
