Herb put me in charge of this one for a week. What was he thinking?!

We arrived 4 hours early to the airport so she could eat and shop, only to find out, she was TSA pre-approved. Wooo freakin hoo she didn’t have to take her shoes off. After several delays, we arrived late down south to see the big mouse the next day. Welcome to the happiest place on Earth!

Newest thing at the park, is the FastPass Bracelet. We were on board but felt like GPS central.

The amount of people is tremendous. Yet, it kept moving well to keep our day one of the happiest days on Earth!

Since I didn’t remember my last 2 times there, I was ready to hit the new spots then re-live what I *remember*. First, the new coaster of the Dwarfs ride. Give me my hammer!

CS splurged on some sky writing for me… how romantic.

Tea cups were right across the lane, so with some hand wipes, we made it work.

Not sure why most of the lady/girl characters had to hike up skirts, but we got stuck in the last room in our boat. That song is forever longer burnt into my head. Urg. Being our first day, our cell support wasn’t planned. We had to find a spot to charge it up.

As we are finally leaving, the Castle lights appeared. I was in awe. Never seen something lit up and so amazing as the Leadville sky at 2 am. Not joking. I was staring.

We closed it down.

What. A. Day! Video to remind me of this never-again-day. Amazing but the camera operator didn’t understand how the iPhone video works. Whoops.
