For a number of years I've thought I was the last person in the United States who had neither been to Disneyland or Disney World. I did spend a day at EuroDisney in the 1990s and had a great time, but never made it back to another Disney park closer than Paris. As a little girl I was mesmerized by "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights and loved "It's a Small World" at the 1964 World's Fair. My dream growing up was to go on my honeymoon to Disneyland. I've traveled a lot, but alas no honeymoon or trip to Disneyland.
As I've written about before, last summer I had surgery for a spinal cord tumor. I resolved to read nothing about the condition before the surgery and stuck to it, so as not to scare myself before the procedure. But afterwards I had a lot of questions and figured there was an on-line support group. I found the Facebook page for the Spinal Cord Tumor Association and what a wonderful find it was. Everyone understood exactly what I was experiencing and everyone was supportive. I found people literally all over the world for answers to my questions. It was a true gift.
In July the group will celebrate their tenth anniversary at Disney World and I will no longer be the last person in America who has yet to visit one of the parks. I'm thinking of a staying a few extra days and spending a day at Epcot or Universal. Any and all suggestions gratefully received. Any Disney fans in Buttercupland? And yes, I'm excited just thinking about it!
We had a relatively mild day today and tomorrow it's supposed to be in the 50s. Yahoo! I am so happy in the winter for every day without snow, and every day that brings us closer to spring. Take care and have a beautiful Tuesday.
