My Disney Thank You List :)
Welcome to those of you joining me from 400 Miles to Disneyland and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the final stop on our Magical Blogorail.
This month the proposed topic was "What, big or small, are you thankful for at Disney?" I knew the answer immediately but I still can't decide whether it is big or small. What I am most thankful for in my life is magic and love. It goes without saying that I continue being thankful on vacation- maybe even somehow I feel more grateful for the ability to take trips and have fun with people I love. How does anyone go to Disney and not feel this? How do you head out to the happiest place on Earth and not have a vacation filled with laughter and joy?
People sometimes ask me why I keep going back to Disney and its those magical moments. Like riding Prince Charming's carousel with my husband at 2:30 in the morning during extra magic hours this Spring and laughing and goofing off. I looked over at my husband and thought "I will be 100 years old and remember *this* moment." The joy was palpable the laughter singing in the air. I wasn't just celebrating my 30th birthday I was celebrating every happy moment in my life that lead up to that trip and me being the person I am.
When I am counting down to a trip and hit single digits a small bit of excitement begins to grow in the pit of my stomach. As I pack and start gushing to people it builds and builds. By the time we hit the airport my smile is plastered on my face and when we reach Orlando International airport the minute that the thick sweet air hits me I feel like I am home. The excitement is now swollen inside of me to the point my heart feels like it is inflating with love and as we check in and head to a park my happiness and heartbeat pick up. Then I step onto Main Street USA and here the ring of bells in the music or the futuristic sound of Epcot's entrance music and no word described my feeling more than THANKFUL. I am thankful to be in Disney, thankful to have a wonderful husband who loves me and loves never growing up with me, and thankful for the adventure on the horizon.
I guess that is a pretty big thing to be thankful for.
