Me & My Muse – Day 2296: The Most Magical Place on Earth – Part II: Epcot

To review, my trip to Epcot was so much fun today.  As an appetizer, here are three pictures that summarize my experience.  There are a lot more and I will have them in a future recap.

What I did today included going on the Orange Mission of Mission SPACE (FastPass), Test Track (FastPass), ate Chicken and Precuttio, fries, cookie crunch brownie, and water at the Electric Umbrella, Imagination Featuring Figment, got a shot of Ralph and Vanellope, Spaceship Earth, Living with the Land, visited Mexico, The Alps (Norway), China, India, Africa, Germany, Spain, Italy, The American Adventure, Japan, had dinner at Tokyo Dining consisting of Miso Clam Soup, Spicy Crunchy Roll, and Seared Tuna Roll, visited Morocco, Belgium, Brazil, France, had Tarte Au Chocolat at Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie, visited International Gateway, United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, Australia, Hawai’i, went on Sourin’ Around the World, and saw the Epcot Forever firework show.  All in all, it was a pretty full day.  Consider this the lite version as the full version will be released after I get back from Walt Disney World.

Tomorrow, I will be going to Animal Kingdom, so I better get going off to bed.  I will let you know how that goes tomorrow!

My Muse is currently 12 years and 1.25 months old today. She is 3’7″ tall and she weighs 35 pounds. The height and weight of a five-year old.

Today’s high is going to be 88 degrees and the silver lining is having loads of fun in Epcot.

To those of you who love fun theme parks, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

 

Muse:  That Soarin’ Around the World was so fun!  I want to go on it again!

Twin Muse:  So do I!  Why do we have play by Tangibles rules!  We’re Intangibles!

Muse:  You’re right!

Twin Muse:  That was also fun going on that today.  Let’s go on it again!

Me & My Muse – Day 2295: The Most Magical Place on Earth

This is it.  This morning, I will be taking off with my brother and parents on a magical journey that will take me to the House of Mouse.  The place where dreams come true.  After 23 years, I never thought that I would experience this moment again.  I am officially on my way to the Most Magical Place on Earth: Walt Disney World.

When I was 12 years old, I was in the sixth grade.  During this time, it was back in August of 1996.  With me, my brother, my sister, my grandparents have always given us “I Love You” gifts.  They were usually small gifts given to us every they visited to show their appreciation and love for us.  With my two cousins in the picture, they also provided “I Love You” gifts to them as well.

But during that August, I heard about them sending out what they called the Greatest I Love You Gift Ever.  That month, I got the first clue to the gift.  For the clue, I had to answer trivia questions pertaining to that clue.  It was a Disney movie, and I wrote down my answers.  In September, I received part II of the gift.  It was more questions, with it being a similar activity to the first clue.  More trivia and more Disney facts.  Despite this, I still had no clue what the gift was.

Then October came.  For Part III of the Greatest I Love You Gift Ever, I was given pictures of different Disney Characters, and I had to, with my brother and sister, name every single one.  After this activity was over, my parents got out another package.  This was sent with Part III of the Greatest I Love You Gift Ever.  The package was in a large cardboard tube.  Some kind of poster was inside.

My parents got the rolled up poster out of the tube and began unraveling it.  What could it be?  What could the Greatest I Love You Gift Ever be?  The three clues that were sent had to do with Disney.   But Disney what?

After they unraveled it all the way, my 12-year old self gazed at the poster.  On the yellow construction paper was a map of the United States, with only the states of Michigan, Arizona, and Florida visible.  From Arizona, there was a a line drawn through an airplane with the faces of my grandma, grandpa, Margo, Aunt Sherrie, and Uncle Kirk, with a line drawn from the plane all the way to Florida.  There was a line drawn through another airplane from Michigan with the faces of Uncle John, Sean, Aunt Kari, my dad, my mom, my sister, me, and my brother, with a line drawn from the airplane all the way to central Florida.  When I saw the Mickey Mouse ears on Florida, I figured it out and I freaked out.  “WE’RE GOING TO DISNEY WORLD?  AHHHHHH!!!!”

So it was official.  On November 5, 1996, I went to Walt Disney World with my family, my grandparents, my two aunts and uncles, and my two cousins.  Our vacation lasted from November 5th to November 11th, since our flight back on the 10th had an engine failure.

That trip back in 1996 was the trip of the lifetime, and I really enjoyed every minute.  Now almost 23 years later, I get to do it again.  And from right here, I’m going to cut it short, since I need to leave for the airport with my brother and parents.

 

Muse:  Not yet!  I just wanted to say one thing.  I’m excited!  Aren’t you?

Yes.  Very Excited.

Twin Muse:  We get to go to Disney World!  Whoo hoo!

Time to wrap this up now.  There will be more updates this week, so stay tuned for all the magic.

My Muse is currently 10 years and 8 months old today. She is 3’4.5″ tall and she weighs 32 pounds. The height and weight of a four-and-a-half-year old.

Today’s high is going to be 89 degrees and the silver lining is finally arriving in Walt Disney World after 23 years.

To those of you who like going on vacations of a lifetime, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

 

Muse:  I can’t wait until we get to the airport!

Twin Muse:  I can’t wait until we get to the hotel!

Muse & Twin Muse:  DISNEY WORLD!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! I CAN’T WAIT!!!!

Me & My Muse – Day 2294: Disney Eve

You have all heard of Christmas Eve, but for those who have ever planned a Disney vacation, there is another fun day of anticipation.  A day that I would liken to a holiday.  For my family and I, it is now officially Disney Eve.

My luggage is 80% packed.  The hotel has been called with all the questions answered.  Everything is ready to go for tomorrow.

 

Muse:  I’m totes ready to go and I want it to be tomorrow already!  Walt Disney World is going to be totally lit!  Wait…80%?  Why aren’t you 100% packed?

Well, for one thing, I can’t pack my toothbrush until tomorrow morning.  I can’t pack my journal until tomorrow since I have to record my dreams tomorrow morning.  I can’t pack my hairbrush until I wet down my hair and comb it tomorrow.  I can’t pack my laptop until I finish my GameFAQs posts tomorrow morning…

Muse:  Okay okay!  I get it!

Twin Muse:  Eee!!! I can’t wait until tomorrow!  Why can’t it?  Why can’t it, Kyle?

Muse:  We don’t believe you.

Twin Muse:  Yeah.  Prove it!

I’m very very excited, you two.  What more do you need?

Muse:  I don’t know.  That didn’t sound very excited to me.

How about this!  WHOO HOO!  OH YEAH!  I’M GOING TO DISNEY WORLD!  I CAN’T WAIT!!!!  There.  Satisfied?

Twin Muse:  Very very hundred!  Hundo p!

Muse:  Whoa!  I just got another Instagram from my bestie.  Aw…She and our fam are going to miss both of us.  I’m going to message her back and tell her that we’ll get plenty of selfies for her.

Twin Muse:  More selfies than what our phone can hold!  I am the selfie queen!

Okay.  I’m going to get ready.  Be ready to leave tomorrow morning.  Okay?

Muse:  Kyle.  You don’t have to tell us twice.  We are both stoked for Disney.

Twin Muse:  Totes stoked!

Muse & Twin Muse:  Later Kyle!  AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!  I CAN’T WAIT!!!

Me & My Muse – Day 2293: Pre-Disney Trip Checklist

Having finished work for the week, I am now in full-blown Walt Disney World trip-planning mode.  My clothes is currently in the washer, as I need to do a little more packing before mostly everything is packed.  I of course can’t pack everything until tomorrow, since my showering essentials will need to go in there.  I will pack my spare toothbrush for the trip, and my main one last on Sunday.

Having that said, there really isn’t anything else left to do.  Just enjoy myself until the big departure day on Sunday.  There is only two days left and I can’t wait!  Time to enjoy myself now…

Me & My Muse – Day 2292: Itinerary and Survivor Catch-up

Having finished work, I got a haircut and went shopping.  After that, I wasted no time in getting the Walt Disney World Itinerary done.  With that finished, I cleaned the bathroom.

I am now typing this entry, ready to watch the Survivor episode that I missed last night.

 

Muse:  And I’m ready to go to Walt Disney World!  When will it be Sunday already?

Dark Muse:  *sigh*  I don’t want to go.  *sniff*  Just go without me!  Tee hee…  *sob*

???: That will be quite enough.

The Creator!

The Creator:  There is no need to be sad at a time like this…

*The Creator morphs into MCMaker*

MCMaker:  The dark girl is all sad and I say…wuzupwiththat?  Hey…You.  Listen to me.

Dark Muse:  What do you want?  Tee hee…*sniff*

MCMaker:  I have a ticket to your happiness.  It’s all rolled together in one beautiful package.  Are you ready to enter Smile City?

Dark Muse:  What can POSSIBLY make me happy?  *sniff* *sob* Tee hee…

MCMaker:  THIS!  Brace yourself, girl, cuz you’re entering the city limits…

*MCMaker blasts a powerful beam at Dark Muse, transforming her into Twin Muse*

Twin Muse:  What?  Huh?  I’m…A real Intangible?

*MCMaker morphs back into The Creator*

The Creator:  You are, but it has a limited effect.  Starting tonight, you are a real Intangible.  I believe that the effect wears off on the 28th on Monday morning…

Twin Muse:  Oh thank you!  This IS the wonder city of Smile City!

*Twin Muse hugs The Creator tightly*

The Creator (in MCMaker voice):  Ya dig it?

Twin Muse:  This form is totes GOAT!  Oh my goodness!  I need to get packing boots!  I don’t have a single thing packed yet for Walt Disney World!  Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!

*Twin Muse vanishes in a beam of glittery light*

Muse:  I think I’ll help her.  I totes need some twin time with my sis.  Later!

*Muse vanishes in a beam of glittery light*

Thank you for helping her.  The Dark Muse has desperately wanted to become a real Intangible lately.

The Creator:  She has really grown a lot.  Even though you can’t see it in her form, I can see it.  If I could permanently undo the Adversary’s curse, I would.  But mark my words.  There will be a way for her to permanently become a real Intangible someday…Have a wonderful night, Kyle!  Keep that One Privilege safe!

I will.

*The Creator vanishes in a blinding beam of light*
