During Thanksgiving last Fall, the Saint had a business trip to Florida. He took some vacation time as well so I tagged a long leaving my Georgia Gardens for a bit. We went to Disney World! We finally made it after talking about Disney for years!
It truly is a magical place! We opened and closed each park during our stay and we had a blast taking in all we could. My favorite at the Magic Kingdom is the castle at night. Blue...
To Orange! I could hardly take my eyes off the thing!
The night time lighted parade is a must but the same music over and over again was a bit for the nerves. Kind of like the "Its a small world" song"....
So many lights and so much fun! We got lucky and had a birds eye view from the tram station.
Seeing beautiful blooms in late November were awesome!
Hard to believe but this mountain is man made. Not real snow at all but so realistic to us.
The Tree of Life is man made as well. Can you see what I see?
Now can you see what I see? Lots of animals in the Animal Kingdom.
Of course we took in all the rides we could giving thumbs up for the camera. Notice how we are the only ones on this ride. Yep, the day after Thanksgiving and the next four days were the best with little to no crowds.
Look at the beautiful beast. This one is real or so the safari rider said he was. Hard to tell what is real and not in this place though.
Now this sight captivated us. I could have stayed here all day watching that baby playing with mommy. It was adorable and you should have heard the Awwwwww's. Little thing was so into mommy that it would not turn around and smile for the camera.
Over in Hollywood, we had a blast on the Tower of Terror. I am the one pointing to the guy next to me holding my hand. On this dropping ride, you are in the dark but with a flash of light at times and to snap unsuspecting photos. This ride drops more then once and never the same. With the first drop, I grabbed the guy next to me on his knee. I quickly said I was sorry. The next thing I know, the guy grabbed my hand and started to scream like a hungry baby! I got so tickled and was trying to tell the Saint that this guy would not let go of my hand. I was telling the Saint to look at him as he screamed and about that time, the camera went off and captured this moment. After the ride was over, the guy apologized for holding my hand and screaming in my ear. I laughed and told him it was just fine. When he saw this picture, he cringed and turned beat red in the face. We loved this ride so much that we rode it 3 times that day!
The Rocking Roller-coaster was thumbs up and we rode it twice!
At night time the place became magic with fountains glowing in the dark.
Epcot was as beautiful at night,
As it was during the day.
The Flowers in the planters were awesome. As we sleep, the gardeners must be replacing them as they were all perfect.
At one point, I thought I was back in Germany again!
On the way home, we drove up 1A1 to enjoy the ocean. Ah, what a wonderful ending to an awesome weekend seeing MICKEY MOUSE, in the Garden...
