DISNEY WORLD IS MAGICAL
WHEW! What a whirlwind trip...but I'm happy to report THE MAGIC CONTINUES. Maggie is back home in Colorado after flying by herself from Durango to Orlando Thursday and then reversing the journey Sunday. What a delightful time we had at the Mouse House! Her squeals and smiles were worth it all. Her favorite rides just happen to be the ones that scared me to death! She is a delightful little girl with great imagination. We both were instantly transformed into giddy 6 year olds the minute we saw the CASTLE! We soaked up every thrill we could possibly pack into 2 days.
BUT...alas another observation! There are way too many folks visiting Minnie and Mickey's place. There were surely a ka-billion people tromping around in the hot Florida sun. (Recession?) I'm thinking of staring a petition that states that no one under the age of 5 or over the age of 75 be allowed in the park. Those two groups of people were the most miserable of all creatures. I watched in amazement as young parents struggled to keep their sanity while caring for infants and Grandma at the same time. No one in those families was smiling. I felt so sorry for them all! My mind could not even imagine our own sons taking their little ones to such a place. How on earth would you corral 5 children or even 3, keeping them comfortable, fed and happy? Yes...6 is the age to be. Old enough to understand "wait" but young enough to allow the magic to absorb your mind. The best of all worlds is being the Grandmother of a precious 8 year old girl experiencing MAGIC through her wide child eyes. Yes, this Grandma's world is where magic lives.
