WHEN YOU WISH UPON A STAR....
DON'T YOU JUST LOVE THAT SONG! :)

AND YES.... IN ORLANDO, ALL MY DREAMS CAME TRUE!...... MORE ABOUT THAT LATER.

IT JUST SO HAPPENED THAT WHEN WE VISITED EPCOT DISNEY, THEY HAD A FOOD AND
WINE FESTIVAL. WELL I WAS IN HEAVEN!! ... LOL

POUR ME ANOTHER GLASS OF ITALIAN ROSE THANKS ;)

IF OUR SON WAS NOT WITH US I PROBABLY WOULD NOT HAVE VISITED DISNEY.
I AM SO GLAD I DID THOUGH. I WAS BLOWN AWAY!

BEING A LOVER OF ROLLERCOASTERS, I WAS IN MY ELEMENT HERE :)
YOUNG JESSE GOT US FRONT SEATS ON THE THUNDER MOUNTAIN ROLLER
COASTER - A FIRST FOR ME. SCARY, BUT LOTS OF FUN!

BUT THE ULTIMATE WAS THE FIREWORKS TO "WISH UPON A STAR".
I CRIED LIKE A BABY HAHA. I HAVE A VIDEO THAT I MAY TRY TO
UPLOAD HERE ONE DAY.
WE GOT PRIME VIEWING OUT ON THE TOP DECK OF A HOTEL IN ORLANDO
ARRANGED BY OUR FRIEND ANN.

SPEAKING OF ANN.... ANN AND CHARLIE, OUR GOOD FRIENDS MET ON
VIRTUALTOURIST, LIVE IN THE TAMPA AREA OF FLORIDA AND HAVE A CONDO
IN KEYS WEST ORLANDO DISNEY. WHEN THEY HEARD THAT WE WERE
COMING OVER, ANN ARRANGED A LITTLE MEETUP THERE..... WHICH TURNED
INTO A BIG INTERNATIONAL VT MEET. WE HAD PEOPLE FROM THE UK,
DENMARK AND MEXICO AS WELL AS OTHERS FROM THE US AND CANADA.

KIMBERLY FROM VT HEADQUARTERS WAS ALSO THERE AND BROUGHT US
SOME VT GOODIES AS USUAL :) SADLY... IT WOULD BE THE LAST TIME WE
WERE TO SEE KIMBERLY AS JUST RECENTLY.... FEB 2017 THE OWNERS OF VT
TRIP ADVISER DECIDED THAT THEY WANTED TO DELETE THE COMPETITION.
A SAD DAY FOR ALL OF US VT'ERS.....

SO HERE ARE A FEW MEMORIES OF OUR MEET AND A FEW OF THE
CONDO IN KEYS WEST. THE GOOD THING ABOUT STAYING HERE IS THAT
YOU GET A DISNEY BAND TO WEAR AROUND YOUR WRIST AND IT GETS
YOU ON THE BUSES PROVIDED AND ON THE FERRY. IT IS WELL SET UP.

DISNEY SPRINGS IS OUTSIDE OF DISNEY WORLD BUT IN AMONGST
THE THE DISNEY ACCOMMODATION. IT IS THE PLACE TO GO FOR MORE
ENTERTAINMENT, SHOPS, RESTAURANTS ETC.

AND NICE MEAL.... SORRY NO RESTAURANT TIPS.... CAMERA DAY OFF ;)

ALL OF MY LIFE I HAVE WANTED TO VISIT CAPE CANAVERAL. SEEING A
ROCKET LAUNCH WOULD BE JUST THE ICING ON THE CAKE :)
SO.... I ASKED ANN IF SHE COULD TEE UP A DAY FOR THOSE OF US THAT
WANTED TO GO TO SEE NASA. CHARLIE KINDLY OFFERED TO DRIVE US.0

LITTLE DID I KNOW THAT A FEW WEEKS BEFORE WE SET OUT ON OUR BIG
TRIP.... I DISCOVERED THAT THERE WAS GOING TO BE A ROCKET LAUNCH
AT THE TIME OF OUR VISIT... WOOHOO!!! WOW!! I COULDN'T CONTAIN
MY EXCITEMENT! I WANTED TO DO CARTWHEELS!! LOL.

SO IT WAS ARRANGED. WE BOOKED TICKETS FOR THE ROCKET LAUNCH.

BUT.... SO SADLY THE ROCKET LAUNCH DID NOT HAPPEN ON THE DAY :(
APPARENTLY THEY HAD A PROBLEM WITH SOME VALVE.
BUT APART FROM THIS DISAPPOINTMENT...... WE STILL HAD A GREAT DAY.
