This post isn’t a review; it’s about my trip to Disney World when I was twelve. Because of my HLHS, I qualified for the Make-A-Wish organization, a charity that grants the wishes of seriously ill or handicapped children.
Walt Disney World: Part 1
I wanted to go to Disney World in Orlando, Florida. I’d never been there, and Florida sounded like fun. My family and I went the summer of ’07, and we stayed from Wednesday Aug. 15th- Tuesday Aug. 21st.
The trip started out the morning of Aug. 15th, when a black stretch limousine pulled up in front of the house to pick us up. I’ve always wanted to ride in a limo, and I thought I’d never get the opportunity. The limo was nice inside, and there were glass bottles of soda.
When we landed in Florida, we got a white twelve passenger van to get around in. At Give Kids the World Village, I was given a stuffed Mickey Mouse, and everyone in my family was given “Give Kids the World Village” T-shirts. Although we weren’t going to be staying at the village, we could use everything the offered: Ice cream palace, gingerbread house (sandwiches), miniature golf…the possibilities were endless. I was even given a special version of CandyLand that has pictures of the different places around the village on the board. Though I was twelve, I liked the game. Three years after the trip, and I still like it.
At Magic Kingdom, I was meeting all these Disney characters, and I’d gotten an autograph book and a Disney Princess pen so I could collect signatures. The rides were awesome. I really liked Cinderella’s carousel, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, and the Alice in Wonderland Teacup ride where you went around and around.
One of the best parts of the trip was meeting Cinderella and Mickey Mouse.
