A birthday at the World (pictures)

A busy birthday, Natalie's, at the World, a wish come true....

It was an early (well, not as early as we had planned, LOL) breakfast at
Donald's in AK. What a way to start the day, your own birthday, in the
mouth of a duck.

After breakfast, we met up with DIS'er, college program CM, Syracuse
Wolverine (Eric), who was super company during the day. And he knew some
of the 'inside stuff' too We headed over to Kilimanjaro, ably driven by
DIS'er PandyPaws (Donna). What fun, what a great ride, Donna!!

All the more reason to return, EXPEDITION Everest!!!!!

Timon, at FOTLK, being, well, Timon!!!!

As we left the park, we had another CM take our picture with Eric.
Thanks, Eric, for a fun day, it was great.

After a quick change at the Swan, Natalie and I headed to MK for the
evening. As we did in Epcot, with revisiting our family's Leave a Legacy
tiles, we stopped at the TTC by the Poly to see our family brick. It was
really nice, memories of our family trip from '99.

And sort of reliving that past trip (we stayed at the Poly then),
Natalie and I ate her BD dinner at Kona, Cafe, and always Disney touches that we
all know so well.

After dinner, we hopped the monorail, for a stop by the Grand Floridian and Contemporary.
This bridal party, along with the HUGE Christmas ginger bread house made the
visit so neat.

Stunning, isn't it?????

And then The Contemporary, always neat!!!!

Now, on to MK. We arrived about 8 PM, skipped the first Spectro, went
on a few rides. Haunted Mansion is even cooler at night. 10 PM Wishes, and
as we know, wishes can come true, if only we believe. And I do.....
Here's proof!!!!

Then the 11 PM Spectro, and at the end, Minnie here waving good night, near 11:30

And to put a wonderful touch and cap on the night, a bit of those Disney
touches we know so well, the folks at the Swan had this waiting for Natalie when
we returned a bit after midnight. A magical birthday at the World.

We stopped back in the room for a bit now, Natalie packed up for
the trip home tonight. Now we are headed over to MGM for the day. A
super time so far.

Great pictures Dan, I can tell you and Natalie are having a great time together and I'm so glad you guys are getting to enjoy this time with each other.

Seeing this thread made me think about last year when I was with you at the MK with some other DISers and you called Natalie on the phone and we all sang Happy Birthday to her.

Enjoy your day Natalie and have a safe trip home!
