Later, gator

We're off to Disney World.

Catch you on the flip side.

Take the week off from Monday Missions on March 2nd, hopefully I'll come back with a fun slate of ideas for the rest of March (ideas always welcome...)

And for your sing-along pleasure here's a little ditty from an old post....

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

Enjoy! We are going in the spring. I have a conf in Orlando and I figure why not just bring the fam!

We went for one day last week (we stay about 90 minutes away, so...) and only managed to get on two rides because everything takes so long.

But it's all good. Fiona's dream was to ride Space Mountain, and Lorenzo was thrilled with the Peter Pan ride. They loved having down-time on Tom Sawyer Island. When they are a few years older, i really look forward to staying in the park.

Love the song! And I love Disney World too! These days, I have to accept that Disneyland is my home theme park, but I grew up in Jacksonville and spent many a day on the streets of the Magic Kingdom. Enjoy the trip!

I hope you're having a wonderful time! I loved (and remember) when you posted your song before. The scary part is that I know the tune, too! :)
