Wow! October is almost over. The kids have an academic team meet Tuesday night; the same night the community is having Trick or Treat. All of this is contingent on Sandy not dumping 12 inches of snow on us. Snow in October, unique for here, for sure. The election is November 6th and the kids get November 5th off as well; I have a doctor’s appointment on the 7th and an academic team meet on the 8th. After this, one week of school and we are off for Thanksgiving. Wow! Time flies and we just keep moving. I have some friends who will be in WDW for Thanksgiving and I can’t wait to hear what they have to tell, all the new stuff at Fantasyland, the new test track and any food we’ve not eaten before. There is always something new at WDW and it seems almost like an entirely different place since our first visit in July 2001.
And now… the excuses:
In 1811, the first Ohio River steamboat leaves Pittsburgh for New Orleans. Of course, this means travelling down the mighty Mississippi River, stomping grounds of the great Mark Twain. So go to the Magic Kingdom and rider the riverboat, experience the sights and sounds of riding the river in the 1800’s. Call it off… mark twain!
1971, NBC-TV ran a special program, The Grand Opening of Walt Disney World. Fifty-two million people get their first view of Walt Disney World, filmed over three days with many celebrity appearances. What was there at the time? The Polynesian, the Contemporary and the Magic Kingdom: hop on the monorail and visit the original turf at WDW.
Remember, your best excuse is always: waiting for your dreams to come true.
