Have a Magical Day!


Did I mention that it rained when we were at Disney? We were there for five days and it rained every day, but the Saturday was the worst, torrents of non-stop rain all day! It was like walking around under Niagara Falls.

We stayed at Fort Wilderness Campground, and sorry about this very dark picture, but here's the enormous puddle right across the road. We needed a snorkel and flippers to leave our cosy cabin.
  
The Disney organisation made a killing on $8 plastic ponchos that weekend.
But the sun did eventually show it's face and guess what.... Mickey was still smiling.
Mickey turned up everywhere. I wish I had taken pictures every time we saw a Mickey face disguised as something else. He was there on the ground outside our cabin. There was a Mickey shaped pond for the hippos at the Animal Kingdom. Mickey even appeared in the pine cone pattern on the fabric of our rustic cabin drapes. I don't think Mickey has made a blockbuster movie in years, has he? And yet he's still a force to be reckoned with, at least at Wally World.
And it was Mickey overload at the inevitable gift shop.

You were hunted by Mickey, wow!
Sorry to hear about the rain.
We had vacations like that too, but on the end it did not matter, we enjoyed being away from home.

Too bad you had so much rain but it sounds like you had a blast regardless, Sham. That little Callum is just adorable. I could eat him up! Mickey, too. :

Gee, those kids are growing up fast. Or am I getting older fast.

So sorry about your wet vacation but being with family and those darling kiddos probably made up for everything.

Only eight dollars!
We laughed when we were there, in the hottest summer for years, that everything started at $20.00. Including a little fan that spritzed water, that my grand daughter couldn't live without. Then when the heat got really bad, we all wanted one!

Sounds like you had a good time in spite of the rains.

Hugs to Callum!

Every ride at Disneyland there's a "hidden mickey". Usually not obvious, but it becomes a game to find the hidden mickey in each ride you go on. You can cheat and find the answers online, but what's the fun in that?
