We don't have the trip all hammered out to the nth degree, which is fine by me. We know that we are going to the Magic Kingdom for at least one day, and perhaps Epcot and/or Sea World on the others. We know that we are meeting up with the Big Daddy clan. Put these knowns together and it's safe to assume that someone will more than likely be vomiting at some point. Everything else is up in the air. Actually, the vomit probably will be too.
This is a mother-daughter trip with Audrey and I traveling with BFF Grace Anne and her mother Aimee. This will be a big test of our travel-compatibility. Our little foursome has been spending some of our recent days off together as sort of a warm-up for the main event, and I can tell you that there are some definite differences between the girls.
Grace Anne likes pretend play, dress up, and more interactive, educational exhibits. Audrey, not so much.
|I'm just gonna take a nap here and|
let Grace Anne do all the work.
|Wait, I'm supposed to crouch |
down and wave this puppet around
so that you can see it but I can't?
And this is fun for me...how?
Grace Anne smiles and poses for pictures. Audrey does not.
|It doesn't help when you wear a|
brown shirt to Glow Golf.
|You'd better work!|
Grace Anne is full of energy and constantly about a 1/2 mile ahead of us when we're walking. Audrey sashays about a 1/2 mile behind us. Something tells me that Aimee and I will be doing a lot of texting each other with our 10-20. That's texting talk, right?
Grace Anne likes to troll the gift shops and buy stuffed animals for her collection. Audrey is not interested unless the animals are stuffed with edibles. Or there is an ice cream freezer in the gift shop.
The last time Grace Anne was at Disney World she dressed down the "cast members" playing Cinderella's evil stepsisters for their nasty ways. Totally cute and appropriate, right? Audrey can't wait to give Minnie Mouse a piece of her mind for reasons that we have never been able to figure out.
Grace Anne is afraid of dark and scary rides, as well as big roller coasters and thrill rides. Audrey probably will be as well. Hurray! Common ground!
|Hopefully we'll be seeing a lot of this.|
