Brenda & Roger

December at Walt Disney World

In Dreams Come True on December 12, 2015 at 7:00 am

We are home, Roger back to work Sunday, Brenda on Monday.  Ho-Hum… it was fun.

A little reflection.  In years past this 1st week of December was a good one to go to Walt Disney World.  This year was much different.  Apparently others have heard that it was a low-crowd week and have jumped on that bandwagon.  I can categorically say, this past week was definitely NOT a low crowd week.  Now I will tell you, due to the fact we like to get going early, we were pleasantly surprised to find the parks opening before the published times!!  by 30 minutes.  Now that’s Magical!!

A repeat post from September 2015 —

The propulsion system is the brawny BRENDA 2015. Capable of hurtling Roger and his wheels faster than he could walk even before his accident. Pushing 300+ pounds up hills makes for a great workout.

It’s a terrific combo, and highly recommended, it’s very important to make sure BRENDA 2015 does not overheat, a bit of a challenge in the Florida weather.

Luckily the BRENDA 2015 is patient and highly skilled and so perfectly suited for this task.

The ride itself is sometimes thrilling as the BRENDA 2015 must weave us through crowds of Disney patrons who are busy texting, studying maps, gawking, and sometimes attempting to herd and corral their young ones.

Until we meet again, Mickey!!!

Patricia, Sci-Fi Dinner Theater… a Duffy collector

Patricia is an avid Duffy collector… She had one on her lanyard as a trader, but she wasn’t allowed to take it.  So… Roger traded for it AND then gave it to her!!!  She was so excited.  He then looked through his selection of pins to trade and found 4 or 5 more & gave them.  She was just beside herself with excitement.  We like to share The Disney Magic too!!

Magical Memories at the Magic Kingdom

In Dreams Come True on December 9, 2015 at 7:07 pm

Roger’s been suffering from a cold all through this vacation (and before!). He tried Zyrtec-D, but that was making his vision blurry, so he quit. He’s been rinsing his sinuses multiple times during the night in a desperate attempt to be able to breathe, and sleep! But he’s still visiting the Parks!

Merry Christmas from Magic Kingdom (note Roger’s red eyes)

We enjoyed all our usual favorites. Starting, of course, with Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin. We were allowed to go through 3 times, since Roger was in a wheelchair and the lines were not long. But Brenda still smoked Roger all three trips! Maybe it was the cold. Or was something else distracting our intrepid space cadet?

Note Roger’s focus, despite his affliction!

Uh-oh. Focus broken. But still worth it!

Went through the Carousel of Progress, shopped at the Big Top, went Under the Sea to see the Journey of the Little Mermaid, enjoyed Mickey’s Philharmagic, checked out the Christmas Shop, then trotted to Monster Inc.’s Laugh Floor, where they had some modified acts! Lunch at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe, and then It’s a Small World.

But when Roger fell asleep in his wheelchair in The Hall of Presidents, we decided to cut the day short and return to the resort.

Roger soaked in the tub while Brenda went to Disney Springs (the new fangled name for Downtown Disney), where she bought soap and Ghirardelli chocolate milkshakes for both of us!

Brandon and Rebecca had a pool day today, hung around the resort, then headed out for dinner and the parade at Magic Kingdom. They’re trying out the new Tony’s Town Square Restaurant, and they have great seats at dinner to watch the parade pass by!

Well, that’s it for tonight.

Tomorrow: final park day. The final year to see The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights!
