I'm going to DisneyLand!

Well, we're packed (mostly) and very excited for our trip to California. We'll be staying with one set of The May Queen's godparents, and seeing the others. We'll visit old friends, and, of course... go to Disney Land. The May Queen is very excited, as are we. I'm sure I'll have lots of tales to tell when we return. I don't think I'll be online much while we're gone, so I'll see you next week! But before I go I thought I'd revisit a post from September... a Monday Mission in which I wrote of MQ's longing to go to Disney World. We have all decided that DisneyLand is a worthy substitute!

(and if you haven't yet seen my Mardi Gras pictures from this weekend check out the post below)

To Disney World
or MQ's Lament
sung to the tune of Part of Your World, from The Little Mermaid
Look at this stuff
Isn't it neat?
Wouldn't you think my collection's complete?
Wouldn't you think I'm the girl
The girl who has everything?
Look at this trove
Treasures untold
How many princesses can one bedroom hold?
Looking around here you'd think
Sure, she's got everything
I've got dollies and stickers a-plenty
I've got storybooks and underwear galore
You want videos? I've got twenty!
But who cares? No big deal I want more

I wanna be where the princesses are
I wanna see, wanna see them dancin'
Walking around on that - what do you call it? Right- Main Street!
Wearing plastic shoes, you don't get too far
Rides are required for fun and squealing
Monorail, Dumbo, It's a Small World - they all sound so NEAT

Out where princesses walk, out where princesses run
Out where princesses stay all day in the sun
We'll catch a show - if we can go To Disney World

What would I give if I could live out of this suburb?
What would I pay to spend a day at Disney World?
Don't need to fly, we could just drive
We could even pack our lunch in a cooler
Not too expensive, I'll donate my piggy bank
When can we go???

I'm ready to know what my friends all know
Walk up to the princesses and get some answers
I'll take a pen and get the autographs for which I yearn....
When's it my turn?
to stay out past dark, exploring the world's most famous amusement park?
Don't tell me no! When can we go?? To Disney World

Well...I have inexplicably had Beauty and the Beast music in my head for I guess it'll be The Little Mermaid. ;)

Have fun! I'm extremely jealous!! Say hello to our mutual friends for me!

Have a wonderful time!

Chrissy said...

I do love that song.

I just sang that song out loud to see if it worked and IT DID! Clever.
Have FUN!

Jen said...

Oh!! have a blast!

We're going, too! But not for a few more weeks :( I am so sad to miss seeing you there!

BTW - wanted to write my "promotion" Mission and I just couldn't. I sounded wayyyy too bitter.

Uh oh.

Jennifer said...

Have a wonderful trip and safe travels!

imbeingheldhostage said...

This is fantastic, and sung by my most favourite character (in my head) ever!
Enjoy Enjoy and Enjoy. The happiest place on earth-- if you plan it right and don't have to do any laundry. Do you know that some Chinese take paper underwear on holiday? You may want to invest :-)

Heather said...

Have a great trip! Can't wait to see a photos!

Kat said...

Disneyland??? How fun!!! I am so jealous! I can't wait for the day the boys are old enough to drag to Disney.
Have a blast and take tons of pics!

Oh how awesome!! Hope your family has a lovely time! I'm looking forward to taking my boys summer '09. :) I will probably be as excited as them!

Jen said...

Have a WONDERFUL trip! Enjoy!

Sarah said...

Ooh! I hope you all have a wonderful, wonderful time.

Luisa Perkins said...

You are going to have a wonderful time! Can't wait for the happy recap.

flutter said...

get a picture with Snow White! I want to see what she looks like! (I used to play her at the park)

Girlplustwo said...

have a fab time in the happiest place on earth. and drink the mint juleps.

JCK said...

I hope it is everything she wants it to be! That song was brilliant. You might be able to sell it to Disney and OWN the LAND!

Bring warm clothes. It's been chilly out here. I do not jest. Getting down to 30's tonight.

Christine said...

Have fun and HAPPY Mardi Gras!!!!!

Running on empty

Kyla said...

Brilliant song! Have a blast, PM!

Unknown said...

Have fun. I hope you enjoy it more than I did in 1989 when I HAD to go with a recently divorced/dumped sister who spent the whole time whining... and the beer was more expensive than food.

E said...

And remember there is nothing wrong with Mickey ice cream for breakfast. My kids remember the one vacation night dessert before dinner rule, more than anything else we did on our Dsiney trips.

Sarcasta-Mom said...

OMG, that was hilarious. I could sing right along in my head.

Have fun!

Laski said...

This is awesome--I hope you have a fun and safe trip! Love, love the song :) I have a little something for ya!

girlymom said...

Oh this is fun! I'm going to have that song stuck in my head forever now! Have a wonderful time! :)

NotSoSage said...

Have an excellent time! I hope the May Queen gets all her heart desires!

Badness Jones said...

We're waiting a few more years to do DisneyWorld....until both kids are tall enough for all the important rides, and old enough to remember the trip. Hope the MayQueen (and her parents!) have a fabulous, wonderful time.

Bayou Belle said...

never a dull moment with you;-)

Keeping It Real said...

You're going to have a great time. We went to Disney World in Florida last summer and the kids are already begging to return.

Creative-Type Dad said...

That's just too funny.

Have a great time!

crazymumma said...

Oh man. I know the tune to your pillaging of that song so well. Bookangle watched it endlessly while I lay on the couch pregnant with Songbird.

Have a GREAT time. Have you seen Enchanted yet?

Wayfarer Scientista said...

Have fun and stay sane! Awesome song by the way.
