Dreams Do Come True in Port Orleans. ~~*The End! Final Thoughts. 2/25 Pg. 41*~~

Dreams Do Come True in Port Orleans.

Jen and I just returned from a Magical Disney Trip.

There were a lot of changes and tweaks but it was a practically perfect trip.

I have to completely agree! It was quite a magical trip!!! I have to say the month of January at Disney has completely won me over!!!!

The Cast:

Leslie & Jen.

We left the husbands at home and had a girls trip.

The Dates: January 13 – January 19th.

The Resorts: Port Orleans French Quarter the 13th – 17th and Saratoga Springs the 17th – 19th.

Now to the important things….

What ADRs did we add and cancel?

Hmmmm...changes I like changes LOL!

How many bandaids did I use?

Did I get any blisters?

Did it rain?

Was the thermal underwear necessary?

This question made me laugh out loud!!!! Too funny!!!!

Did we lose the rental car?

Stay tuned for all of those answers and more!!

I'm excited to hear the answers and I already know them LOL!!! Going to be a lot of fun had rehashing our tales!

Down in New Orleans from The Princess and the Frog.

In the South Land there's a city
Way down on the river
Where the women are very pretty
And all the men deliver

They got music
It's always playin'
Start in the day time, go all through the night

When you hear that music playin'
Hear what I'm sayin' it make it feel alright

Grab somebody, come on down
Bring your paintbrush, we're paintin' the town
Oh there's some sweetness going 'round
Catch it down in New Orleans

We got magic, good and bad
Make ya happy or make ya real sad
Get everything you want and lose what you had,
Down here in New Orleans

Hey partner, don't be shy
Come on down here and give us a try
You wanna do some livin' before you die
Do it down in New Orleans

Stately homes and mansions
Of the sugar barons and the cotton kings
Rich people, poor people, all got dreams
Dreams do come true in New Orleans

What a beautiful song!!! This makes me really want to find some time this weekend and go see the movie if its still playing at my theater!!! WOW!! Simply wonderful!!!!!!
