"To all who come to this happy place: welcome." Walt Disney*


Every member of my family is itching for a visit to our favorite place, the Happiest Place on Earth. There are those who visit Walt Disney World and are done with it and those of us who could go again and again and always find new things to do. Of course, the old favorites entice us, too.

Alas, we can't go anytime soon. The schedule is simply too full for us to go right now. (High school is a busier time than we expected.) But the idea is there, calendars are checked and rechecked and plans, if not quite in place, are at least mentioned out loud. We get this fever from time to time. It usually starts with the adults, but we aren't ashamed to admit it.

*In the interest of accuracy, Walt made this statement at the opening of Disneyland, but it is fully applicable to Walt Disney World as well. Tomayto, tomahto.
