A little MAGIC goes a long way!

I was reminiscing about our awesome trip in June, and I remembered a bit of "Disney-magic" that thrilled my daughter beyond belief. My hubby, Piper, and I were hanging out in the lobby of the Caribbean Beach Resort 30 minutes before our Magical Express was to arrive to take us back to the airport to go home. It had been a long but fun week, and Piper was used to being stimulated with rides and sights of the different parks. This was the first day in almost a week that wasn't full of excitement: we were going home :( Needless to say, she was BORED! I was letting her walk all over the lobby, she was touching things trying to find a way to amuse herself. I had pulled out some things to entertain her, but she was not interested.

All of a sudden, a cast member, who had been watching me try and corral her, asked me if she could have a balloon. I was shocked, but said, "Sure!" He went through a door and reappeared a few moments later with a Minnie-balloon (her fave!) because she was dressed like Minnie! She squealed with delight, and she sat for the rest of the time and played with it! She was in heaven!!!

It seems like such a small thing, but for a mom who was running out of tricks, it came at the perfect time! Thanks to that cast member for sharing a little "Disney-magic" with Piper that day. This really showed me that Disney goes out of it's way to make people's vacations special. It was a perfect end to a perfect trip!

See ya real soon!
