Mouse Plans

We’re going to Disney World again. We went last year in October and had a better time than I ever thought we would. I never dreamed I’d be a
once-a-year Disney World person but, as it turns out, I might be. A deal came along that I couldn’t refuse and
we got a week long trip at a Disney resort, including meals and tickets, for
less than the price of a condo rental at the beach. Who can pass that up?

So, for all of you Disney haters out there, I know where you
are coming from. I realize I am the
victim of a vast marketing ploy. I
realize the gift shops at Disney World probably make enough revenue to fund a
third world country. I realize that the
park itself is the very antithesis of nature. I realize that a child who gets to go to Disney World for a week every
year is probably going to have their share of entitlement issues. I acknowledge all of these things and, yet,
as one of the most cynical people I know, I also recognize the fact (and I’m
going to vomit a little in my mouth as I write this) that it really is a
magical place.


  1. "vomit in a little in mouth" Funny stuff!

  2. I think you have been bitten by a mouse, get to the nearest clinic and get checked for hanatavirus...Janet has been comfirned as a carier, Sean I feel your pain...

  3. It's a small world after all, it's a small world after all, it's a small world after all, it's a small, small world. NOW, you cam vomit a little in your mouth.

  4. Thanks Melinda. It's true though. I can't believe I am THAT person, the one that thinks Disney World is a magical place.

  5. Joe-
    I know. I think Sean has been bitten to although he'll never admit it.

  6. Wearing my Disney 50th Year anniversary right now as I write this. Love, love, love Disney. Perhaps it is just the over-the-topness of it all. Perhaps, more likely, it's because I am born on the same day as good ol' Uncle Walt.

  7. I love it too Christina. I especially love the fact that my cousin works there and can get me good deals. Woo hoo!
