Day 386 in my excitement on my way to meeting up with Mickey
Here are the 10 things I am the most excited about for our trip to Walt Disney World in October:
#10 Riding it’s a small world. It is my favorite ride!!
#9 Celebrating one year’s-worth of birthdays with “the dip” (see below) and birthday cupcakes. We have been saving up to celebrate our birthdays together in Florida. Woo hoo! Happy birthday to us!
#8 Exploring EPCOT’s Food and Wine Festival. Looking forward to tempting tidbits of tasty treats.
#7 Experiencing Wishes Fireworks Dessert Party for the first time ever. See comment from number 8.
#6 Spending the better part of a day at Disney Springs exploring and shopping.
#5 Eating at Olivia’s Café at Disney’s Old Key West Resort. This is by far my favorite restaurant at Walt Disney World.
#4 Experiencing Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween for the first time ever. I have my costume now. I ordered it from the Disney Store. I will wear a Mickey Mouse Skeleton Tee and a Minnie Mouse Ears Headband. 🙂
#3 Spending plenty of resort time and pool time at Disney’s Old Key West Resort. It is, seriously, my Happy Place. When I’m chilling at Old Key West I can actually feel all stress leaving my body. It is the ultimate in relaxation for me.
#2 Meeting and greeting Mickey at Magic Kingdom. This has been the driving force behind this blog. I am anxious to shake Mickey‘s big, white-gloved hand and get a picture.
And the #1 thing that I am excited about…Looking at the faces of my husband and children and their spouses and spending some quality time together in this beautiful place. This will be a family reunion extraordinaire!
Meet you at the Kingdom!
*The dip: In a pie plate spread 8 oz. of cream cheese. Next sprinkle 6 to 8 cut-up green onions on top. Then spread a can of No Bean chili on top. (We usually make a second dip with Vegetarian chili with lots of beans.) Finally sprinkle 8 oz. of grated cheddar cheese on top. (We prefer sharp cheddar. The shaper the better.) Microwave for five minutes and serve with your favorite chips. (We usually heat it in the oven t 350 degrees for 30 minutes instead, because it seem to hold it’s heat longer.)
