The Happiest (seagull-watching, bridge-crossing, elevator-button-pushing, bus-riding) Place on Earth

We just spent a week at Walt Disney World. The girls were first-time guests of "The Happiest Place on Earth" and loved every minute of their visit.

The afternoon we arrived they were both giddy with excitement but had absolutely no idea what they were excited about. I'd been talking about "Disney World" for a couple weeks but other than Mickey Mouse and Winnie the Pooh -- who both adorn their toothbrushes -- the girls didn't have a heck of a lot of Disney knowledge. I will admit that I started what Eric has fondly termed "Priness Brainwashing" before we went. (I bought the Princess Tea Party Sing-a-Long DVD and we watched it quite a few times!) So when we got out of our car at the hotel, the girls were ecstatic to see sea gulls and they both were giggling about the clouds in the sky. Once inside the hotel they thought the bridge and the fountains were pretty cool and by the time we got to the elevator -- and they got to push the buttons -- they both thought this Disney place was pretty great!

And then we got on the Disney Bus. I don't know if it's because it's the first thing we rode or because there weren't any car seats involved but the girls LOVED the Disney bus! We could have just spent the whole trip on the bus and the girls would have been thrilled! Each time we'd wait to get on it, they'd do a little happy dance and then try to guess what color seats the bus would have. Once on the bus they'd sing, "The Wheels on the Disney Bus" during most of the ride in between telling me to, "Hold on to the pole tight." One night we got on the Disney Bus and the girls realized that the floor was sparkly. That was it. If the Disney Bus wasn't already the absolute best thing at Disney World, the sparkles secured its number one spot.
