If you’ve read my profile book, you’ve probably seen the many pictures of me and my boyfriend, Jason, at a number of FL-based theme parks. We both grew up in Central Ohio, halfway between Cedar Point and Paramount’s Kings Island, and so both our childhoods were filled with summer trips to each of the nearby parks.
As adults we’ve never really out-grew our love for theme parks and so whenever the opportunity presents itself, we love to plan a getaway to one of the Orlando or Tampa-based theme parks.
Introducing a fellow Ohioan to The Mouse
This trip, however, is a little more special because my brother’s fiance has never been. Usually my brother, Alan, comes down for a visit about once a year and we hang out locally and check out new restaurants or attractions. But this time around we decided to meet in Orlando and introduce his fiance, Britany, to The Mouse – as one of my friends likes to refer to Disney World.
All four of us haven’t seen each other since my sister got married last June in Boston, MA so it will be a good opportunity to get caught up with each other’s lives and also have some fun away from home.
I sometimes find myself imagining how it will be when a little one will accompany us to Disney for the first time – the excitement of getting that first glance at Cinderella’s castle, the awe of meeting their favorite characters in person and the nervous energy that comes from experiencing a ride for the first time.
Will there be a hangry metldown in a long, hot line near lunchtime? Will meeting Goofy with his enormous head completely freak us out? Will I end up carrying them back to the car at the end of the day with them magically taking on the weight of a sack of bricks?
Maybe… even probably…
But, will it be worth it to spend an entire day immersing ourselves in a wonderland fantasy that no kid can even fathom until they experience it for themselves?
