Just when you thought you've seen all the MAGIC! **See Page 95 for PTR!!!!**

We had just gotten back to MK after Juliana's birthday dinner and the crowds were lined up for MSEP, which was only minutes away from starting. As we walked up Main St. towards the castle, I was amazed how organized it was. Everyone was sitting along the street waiting for the parade and the walkways were clear, which was a plus when you are pushing a stroller. We made it to the Walt statue and tried to find a good spot to see the parade. Unfortunately, we were behind 5 rows of people, so we threw the kids on on shoulders and watched as each colorful float came up Main St. and passed us.

Once the parade ended, we turned around and we were in the perfect spot for Wishes, my favorite show in all of Disney. It was 20 minutes till Wishes when there was an announcement that the new show, the Magic, the Memories, and You was about to begin. I saw a few short clips on youtube but I wasn't sure what to expect.

The lights dimmed and the music started. We were in awe at the designs and pictures on the castle. About 2 minutes in, I needed to take a few pictures of the castle... all of the sudden, all of our friends started screaming. Juliana's picture was on the castle!!!!! We couldn't believe it!!!

After a few more minutes, I remembered I was taking pictures of the castle at about the same time Juliana's picture was on there. What were the chances I actually took a picture of the castle while Juliana's picture was on there. I started scrolling through the pictures........


This is the story of our trip to visit family and to spend a few days with friends at the happiest place on earth... DISNEY!







Dates: March 6- March 14

Who are we?

First, we have the princess-



Juliana is 5 years old. She loves princesses, butterflies, and the color pink!



Next my wonderful wife-



Melody is the most loving caring woman I have ever known. She loves Disney and tried to drag me there before we were married but I was stubborn and refused. LOL



Then there is me-



I'm Tim. I love my 2 girls and would do anything for them. I have turned into the DISNEY addict of the family. It all happened the first time I walked into the Magic Kingdom with my girls.


We also met up with some friends on this trip....



Dave, Branda, Victoria, and Alex. We traveled to Disney with them last March and it was their first time in the World. I guess they liked it because they were back for more. Dave's parents were traveling with them for part of the trip as well.




Finally, we met up with Jamie, Bill (not pictured), Hannah, and Lizzie. While Jamie & Bill have been to Disney before on their honeymoon, it was the girls first trip to Disney.




This is the SHORT version of what happened.........

Neighbor!

I've seen you over on Kathy and Tina's report but you were already so far into your other trip report I never joined in.

This time I'm in for the fun.

What...no heads up? No text message? No FB message? Just because I said you had to hold the shopping bags?

Off to lunch and will read when I get back.


****At least I made Page 1 thanks to MOLLY!
