I can hear the music in my head right now.

I will have to let Chelsea read your post later today -- she argued with me yesterday whether Disney had cotton candy or not. Now, let me tell you how that all began. She said, "My favorite things are roller coasters, fireworks, and cotton candy." To which I responded, "Well, then you should love Disney." To which she replied -- they don't have cotton candy. Anyway, long story short, now maybe she will believe me when I say that yes, Disney does have cotton candy.
Go ahead. Use my post to prove a point.

Actually, I'll have to see if I can scrounge up a photo for Chelsea. It's from an MNSSHP, and there's practically every color in the world and World of cotton candy. Green, orange, pink, etc, etc. It looked so good!

I am so glad you had that moment with the telephone with your family.
It was a lot of fun.

Yes, please! I love being able to prove to Chelsea that I do, indeed, know what I am talking about from time to time.

I was so excited when I heard they were bringing back the MSEP last year, because again, it's one of the few things I remember from my very first Disney trip! So like I said, anything that reminds me of that trip, I love. A simpler time.

I did not know about purple cotton candy!!! It sounds wonderful...I love cotton candy, and purple is my favorite color...now I'm going to stalk the
candy shop this year!

I didn't know about that phone either! What a fun little thing to share with your family!

That is a wonderful first day.

I am not a big fan of the MSEP, but I can understand why so many people are nostalgic about it.

I will have to keep and eye out for the purple cotton candy and get it for Boo next year.

Just pop into the candy shop every time you go to MK, and you'll come across purple eventually!

It was a great first day. And I can't speak highly enough about the purple.

I loved that update because I feel the exact same way about the MSEP. Tom and I were just talking about this the other day because he knows how deeply excited I am to be able to see that parade again--in 10 DAYS--because of what it meant to me as a child. He only got to go to WDW before me one time as a child, but we went frequently, and that parade was always the highlight of our trips. I think it will always be the quintessential memory I have of my trips with my parents as a child. I have already forewarned him that there will be tears streaming down my face the first time I see it on this trip, but they are all happy ones!!!! CAN'T WAIT!!!!!

What a lovely chapter. I never connected that you got purple when they are switching over the colors but that makes total sense.

I haven't had cotton candy in such a long time that it sounds really delicious, I might have to indulge in January.

I love that phone, it is such a neat extra little touch. One of the many that Disney has to increase the magic.

Oh, I was crying, too. I didn't write that in, did I? When I saw the parade, I got totally overwhelmed with emotion, not only that I was getting to see it, but that I wasn't see it with Mom. I was grateful and sad all at the same time.

Maybe you could find the elusive purple and split a bag with Marc!

Will that bother your stomach?

Nope, sugar products don't seem to bother me at all...sometimes I wish they did!

Lovely chapter as always!

We really enjoyed MSEP in January - it was a nice change from Spectro.

We tried the phone but it wasn't working. I will have to try again. Love all of the tiny hidden details that make WDW so amazing!

What a great first day!!! Lots of fun and memories both new and old!

Awe, Miss Kat, what a beautiful update.

I am glad that you got to catch the parade.

I too am a lover of purple cotton candy. One of our movie theaters sells it here and I always get that as my snack when we go. I never did get to try Disney's but I will make sure I will the next time I go.
