Dear Disney: Day 1

Dear Disney,

Thank you for your "magical" welcome when we arrived in Orlando at 10:15 pm, with a sleeping Little Lady and a very awake Lady. Thanks for the 20 minute wait on the bus before we headed out for our 30 minute ride, so that by the time we get to the Wilderness Lodge and get organized, it is way too late for any of us to still be up. Because of this, the Little Lady doesn't fall asleep until 1:15 am and the Lady has a breakdown, which ends in her asking us to put her Dora blankie on the floor of the bathroom, where she finally passed out, and by the time we finally move her into her final sleeping place it is after 1:30 in the morning.

Ah, day one---what will you bring? Rain. Rain. Rain.

No parks, a bit of time at the pool and zero nap by the Lady.

Day one ends with a 7:45 pm dinner reservation at Downtown Disney in an Irish Pub, where I was happy to find a keychain with my name on it, but very unhappy with the behavior of the Little Lady, who was well past her bedtime by the time the food arrived at 9:15 and out people watching with her mother while everyone enjoyed some dessert around 10 o'clock.

Now, I will admit that the Little Lady isn't the first person in my family to make a scene at an Irish Pub (myself included) but it was enough to make me question bringing her out to dinner at all.

Luckily the Lady was (kind of) well behaved and very understanding about the fact that we spent the first day in Disney without seeing any princesses. The Lady passed out on my husband's shoulder and the Little Lady soon followed in the stroller ride to the bus. They both never even stirred until the next morning.

Oh, Disney, thank you for taking us into your fold.

love and kisses and Mickey shaped ice cream,
