And by family, I don't mean Jason, Ty and I.
I mean my parents, my sister, brother-in-law, nephew AND my family.
My whole family.
We were keying up and excited for a week long adventure in the land where dreams come true.
And this.....is where I have trouble deciding where to go with this blog.

After the show, we headed down the way to the Star Tours experience and then on towards the Phineas & Ferb Character Greetings. We got most of the way there when Ty realized that he was missing his Indiana Jones Machete (which Indiana Jones himself--or the actor Jake that played Indiana Jones--had autographed for him after the show. We rushed back to the Star Tours ride and inside to where we disembarked and met a nice young man who checked the one we had just come out of, to no avail. It wasn't there. Figuring that was how this would end, I started trying to tell Ty (whose bottom lip was bigger than the rest of his face) that he really had to keep up with his stuff.
And awed we were. I had expected fireworks and maybe a few characters or something, but it was a show much more spectactular that we had expected. A storyline carried through the show that included water works, projected movie scenes, boats, music, and then fireworks to top it off!
That night was sealed as The Best Night of The Trip when, after the show, my nephew wrapped himself around my sister's neck and declared that she was right! Disney really is Magic!

It's A Pirate's Life For Me
So that's just some of the parts of our adventure that stand out to me. It would take ages to recount them all, from the Tower of Terror (both with and without my dad...which is, for the record, the only thing I know of that produces any kind of anxiety for this man who has--my whole life--seemed unafraid of anything!) to the monorail we rode between Epcot and the Magic Kingdom on our last night there.
Disney is Magic and so are each of our memories we made there.
