The winner of Cait London’s book is….
Thanks so much to Cait for stopping by and to all of you for leaving comments.
I know, you’re all wondering what happened to Warm Fuzzy Friday. Well, I’m still on vacation and I didn’t get a chance to post anything. But it has certainly been a warm, fuzzy week. We’re at Disney World, the Happiest Place on Earth.
The colors, the sights, sounds, smells are overwhelming and there is no better place to gather inspiration for a book idea than Disney World. About a year ago after riding the Haunted Mansion, I came up with an idea for a Ghost book. I’m hoping to sell that book next. This trip, I came up with my own version of Cinderella. I can’t wait to get started on it!
If you have a chance to go to Disney, take it. But be aware, it can be overwhelming. Crowds, expenses and heat don’t mix well. Here are some tips if you plan on going in the near future.
1. If you can only go to one park, go to Magic Kingdom.
2. Go early! Get to the park at least 15 mins before it opens. The park gets busier as the day goes on.
3. Use fast passes for popular rides! They’re totally worth it.
Be aware that Disney World is huge. You can’t possibly get through it all in one day. In fact, you can’t even get through all of Magic Kingdom in one day. If you get there early and use fast passes, you can see most of the place.
Most importantly, enjoy it! Yes, there are kids throwing fits, the crowds are thick, the heat intense, but if you’re miserable, you’re not doing it right! Hmm, good motto for life!
Coming up soon is an interview with Rita Nominee Gwyn Cready!
P.S. Speaking of happiest places on earth, I just read an article that listed the happiest Countries. Denmark, Finland and the Netherlands rated at the top of the list. Perhaps we all need to move!
Glad you’re having a happy time, Lori. I saw Star Trek last night with my son and husband, and that was GREAT! I was happy. I’d like to see it again, something I don’t normally do.
I think I’ll take Danish lessons. I already like their bakery. 😉
Did you dress up as Belle at Disney? 🙂 I saw Star Trek tonight, and knowing how much you liked Alias and Felicity, I think you’ll like J.J. Abrams’ latest. There’s even some Rambaldi-esque big red ball happening! lol.
You and I need to go to Disney together!
i so had to say hello-singing and skipping jo.
I’m a west coaster, so our childhood mecca is Disney Land. Tragically, my husband never got to go. (He also was never read to as a child. Shocking!)
This will be the first big vacation we take after (a) we have kids and (b) they are tall enough.
I missed Warm Fuzzy Feeling Friday!!!!!! I am glad you had a great time with the fam though, and it’s awesome you found inspiration for a Cinderella story line. Do tell us more…..
I’d tell you, Amy, but then I’d have to kill you.
