Earning My Ears
- Oct 3, 2019
Reading this made me emotional... I am so happy for you!!I havent been back to Disney World since 1992 when my father took me to kill time during a work trip because I was irritating him about being so close to Disney and not going to Disney. When we went he didnt let me ride anything because it would take too long. I remember walking through the castle and begging to go inside, he told me that there was no such thing as being "inside" it was a fake castle just for show. the trip was a complete nightmare and I've never forgotten how jealous I was of all of the other little kids because it felt like we were having totally different experiences.
Fast forward to today. I'm in my mid thirties, and In less than two months I'm taking my husband and my soon to be 5 year old for his birthday as a surprise, to Disney World. When I made the reservation to eat at Cinderellas Royal Table I got really emotional. Typing this out sounds absurd but it really hit me - after 27 years I'll finally be able to go inside the Castle.
Dang ADisneyAgent! 10 gallons? Nice! I have a few, admittedly, the black & red ones and some from Grand Floridian. I remember back-in-the-day when they used to have The Body Shop shampoo & conditioner in banana. Those were the days of good toiletries at Disney! Probably in the late 80's/early 90's? It smelled soo good that I wanted to eat it! The Body Shop banana products at present do not compare to how they used to be, they're different now. I should of hoarded those then. Oh well.hum, I have another one for yah, I have a 10 gallon storage bin with all shampoo and soaps..remember the red and black ones? and I have the newer ones also. Someone told me to donate them, but they do not realize the money all those little shampoos technically cost me!
Complete get this Alicefan! I was on Spaceship Earth the other day, the person in front of me took FLASH photos on their phone at every scene ... every single scene. I was like .... ... seriously???I don't ever take any pictures in the parks. I rarely take pictures anywhere because I know that if I want to see a picture of something, more than likely, someone else has a better picture with a better camera on the internet somewhere. I did take pictures my first few visits, then I started to question exactly how many pictures of the castle and ToT one could need. Besides, it's not the same with digital pictures. There's something to be said for the excitement of having film developed and getting to see how they turned out. I've lost the drive to bother lol.
Your comment took me back to when I was a child, we drove to Las Vegas from LA in the early 80's and stopped at the 'Welcome to Nevada' sign for a photo, but when we had the film developed back in England the sign was missed off by the photographer so we were just posing with two metal posts. We still laugh about that now.There's something to be said for the excitement of having film developed and getting to see how they turned out. I've lost the drive to bother lol.
