I spent the better part of yesterday and last evening trying to figure out how to get my blog posted to Facebook. I created a new page (Have Studio Will Travel) as Facebook requires and for the month of September everything was fine. Then starting in October no more posts were going to Facebook. If some of you have figured it out I would be grateful for some insight. I have a fair number of followers on Facebook.
So to recap, we were at Epcot on Tuesday and on Wednesday we headed to the Magic Kingdom. In fact we had breakfast at the beautiful castle with a lot of the Disney Princesses. They were introduced one at a time to great fanfare and then eventually they would stop by our table to meet and greet. It was so exciting for Gabby.
This is Princess Aurora from Sleeping Beauty. You should have seen how big Gabby’s eyes were when she stopped at our table. 🙂
Addie was not impressed with any of them.
Next Princess up was Rapunzel. She and Gabby really connected.
Secondary to the Princesses but more important to me was the quality of the food. It was excellent and our server was extraordinary.
The last Princess that I captured an image of is Jasmine from the Aladdin movie. They all spent a fair amount of time at our table and talked with Josh and Gabby at some length.
This is our server Lynn. She is from Windsor England and has a wonderful English accident. What ever I asked for, be it coffee or something else she would reply I would be delighted to my lord. She was just very gracious and helpful.
They say that the best camera in the world is the one you have with you. In many cases that is true. The camera I used this day was not well suited for this type of image captures. More about this camera and its strengths at a later post. It has a pop up flash, which just take terrible photos so I was constantly struggling to get some balanced images.
Enjoy your day and be careful.
Jeanne and I were blessed to join Angie, Ben, and the Grand Kids for a magical week at Disney World in Orlando Florida. I have five images for today and over the next several days I will tell the story of the week. So if you are interested please check back tomorrow.
I have nothing but great things to say about Disney World. It is a magical place and seeing through the eyes of our grand children was an amazing and wonderful thing.
Having said that I learned many things during the experience and some things I learned about myself didn’t make me very happy with myself. There are several things I really do not like. I do not like being in a hot and humid environment. I don’t like large crowds of people, I don’t like a lot of walking, I don’t like standing in line, and I absolutely hate flying. Wouldn’t you hate to be married to me or travel with me? I would!
Of course this trip had all of those things. It was usually in the mid 90s and the humidity was through the roof. Always tons of people, standing in lines, and we had to walk a long way most of the time.
We started our journey last Monday morning at 3:30 a.m. as we had a flight out of Dubuque at 5:45 a.m. If I have to fly, I really enjoy flying out of Dubuque especially when you arrive home all you have is a short drive back to your house.
We arrived at Orlando International Airport without incident and took the Disney Shuttle to our Hotel. It was a magnificent hotel with wonderful accommodations and service. We had dinner in one of the restaurants and was visited by Mickey Mouse and his pals throughout the meal. It was so much fun to see Joshua, Gabby, and Austin’s reaction to each character. Of course I had to compete with their Mom so most of the time they were looking at her and saying cheese. 🙂
Back to the room for some conversation and relaxation as we had an early morning breakfast at the castle in the Magic Kingdom.
More to come…
Enjoy your day and be careful.
