The *Second* Happiest Place On Earth

The first being Disneyland, of course.

Today I conclude our wonderful Disney adventures. I figure that I will just put up some pictures and explain as I go. Because, I don't know about you, but I'm getting somewhat bored with all the Disney pictures.

Here I am on the Dumbo ride. We waited in quite a long, and noisy, line to ride this one. And, I didn't even really like it. I'm not a fan of spinny rides.

One of the favorites - Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.

I have to say, the castle is much prettier at WDW.


While the background is pretty, I wanted to point out how many people there were on Main Street that night. We learned that you never get there right before the fireworks! Ever!

My question is, how the heck do they do heart shapes? That is so cool. They had the smiley face ones too but I didn't get a picture of those.

We watched the fireworks from across the lagoon at the transportation center. It was a great place to see them and then you didn't have to fight your way through crowds to get out of the park. Disney DOES NOT disappoint with the fireworks. Unfortunately, my ability to keep my camera still while taking pictures did disappoint. I forgot my super cool little tripod.

The Haunted Mansion looks a lot different at WDW. It's longer too. favorite ride! Always fun! But there was no one saying, "Dead men tell no tales" just before you go down the drop. I missed it.

Hey, we really are there.

WDW is HUGE! And fun, but HUGE. I almost think, if you're going to do all the parks, you would need 2 weeks. Then you could break up your Disney fun with other fun things. But that would kind of be insane too. Ok, let's think. Maybe go back every few years and just do a couple parks? Or maybe just fly to Disneyland? I haven't decided yet.

Check back next time for our adventures with alligators and armadillos!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to you too! It looks like you had fun! I always thought that it sounded a little to huge to do in one trip too (although I've never been there).
