I had planned to blog from my phone throughout the busy days, throwing up a few pictures here and there; capturing the memories. Instead, I found myself living life as I had before smartphones. I had been unexpectedly forced to follow unknown paths, read the signs in the park, and leave picture taking to others in my company and the professional at Disney.
Experiencing Disney in the lost years of the non-digital age was troubling at times, but the moments I observed, felt and, created were magical.
I watched the excited faces, busy feet; I listened to the multitude of languages filling my ear and the squeals of joy and the tears of exhaustion all happening around me, and I learned a few things:
- People travel from all over the world to come to Disney.
- Few people say no to snacks at Disney.
- Everyone tries to do too much in one day.
- Shows are not only entertaining but a welcome break for all!
- Parents invest in giving their children a memorable experience.
- People are willing to tell you what time the next show will begin.
- My youngest daughter Snap Chats too much!
- My youngest daughter answers with "yes, ma'am and no ma'am when other adults talk to her! (7 months of southern living)
- My oldest daughter knows Disney inside and out! (Disney training)
- My daughter only points with two fingers. (More Disney training)
- My daughters are advocates for themselves.
- If you're quiet and available, they will talk to you.
- If you can't slice for a day or two, the Slice oF Life community will understand.
- Disney isn't magic; it's all the families building memories that are magic!
