Disney Vacation Pics

Here's some pics from our vacation last week...

Each morning, Nelson and JJ would leave for their excursion to one park or another while I attended the RWA conference. Here they are leaving for a day at the Magic Kingdom. Don't they look... excited?

I liked the decor of our Yacht Club room, as it was all done in tasteful, soothing colours...

... and we had our own personal balcony which overlooked the trees...

... unfortunately, it also overlooked the roof air conditioning units. And although I didn't spend much time on the balcony due to the extreme heat, the a/c added to the white noise of the a/c in the room.

Considering that we paid half the normal rates because of the special conference rate, I didn't think we had anything to complain about.

It took me 15-20 mins to walk to the Dolphin Hotel next door.

 In this photo, you see the Dolphin behind the eastern portion of the Yacht Club. I guess they knew I was trying to lose weight, because when we registered, they gave us a room over in the western portion which added another 10 mins to my walk. The Yacht Club is actually twice as wide as the distance you see from where I'm standing to that portion in front of me. Our balcony opened to the south which overlooked the parking lot.

As I walked back to the Yacht Club after that first day of the conference, I heard a boom and saw fireworks. They were part of Epcot's nightly IllumiNations Light Show. I could only see the fireworks, but they were enough.

So, did you like the photos? I have more to show you, too.

Leave a comment before midnight, Sunday night, and I'll enter you in a drawing for a brand new copy of Jillian Hart's A McKaslin Homecoming.

Comments will be accepted on this post only whether it's here on my blog, on my facebook page, or on my blog.



  1. Oh, WOW!
    What memories for the child in all of y'all!

    Blessings, dear one.

  2. I'm so glad you put up your photos and I do want to see more. It is an exciting place to be.

  3. How fun! Thanks for sharing the photos. I can't wait to go to Orlando myself someday and do the Disney thing. (I liked your hotel room, btw.)

  4. Morning, Patti and Deb. Yes, it was exciting and memorable. And, it seems unreal that it's come and gone, you know?

    Congrats, again, Patti on signing with Bethany House. Now that's something memorable, too. :D

  5. Hey Susie, although I liked the whole experience, I'm glad I had a chance to visit Disney World back in '97. That trip was in Oct and the weather was more moderate. Everything has it's positive and negative side, however and the negative back then was that they closed the pools at 6 pm and suggested you didn't swim because of the mosquito problem and danger of encephalitis.

    This time, it was too hot for the skeeters so the pools were open until 10 pm every night. :D

    Nelson said while walking the parks, however, he saw people older and heavier than me and they were suffering in the heat. Makes me glad I didn't need to do the parks this trip. Next time, though, watch out. LOL

  6. Anita Mae ... thanks! Those photos are beautiful - we haven't bumped into one another in a while! Thanks for the compliment on the hair - it changes so often I hardly recognise myself sometimes!

  7. Hey Mavis, we may not have talked, but FB sure comes in handy. Well, as long as we keep posting updates, anyway.:)

    I really like your hair this way so much better than when it's dark like in your profile pic here. You look so much more vibrant in that new pic. But then, that's just IMHO.

    Thanks for finding me here. I've been wondering how your writing is coming in between your trips to Turkey. Haha

    Anita Mae.


Come on, tell me what you think...
