I Went to Disneyworld (part 5) and Watched the Electrical Parade

No one goes to Disney World and not carve out a time to watch the Electrical Parade. It is after all one of the most anticipated attraction of the theme park. Despite the almost 2 hours of heavy downpour before the the parade, by parade time there was only drizzle, which made for a more magical experience.

After the parade was over, our husbands hightailed it to queue for a turkey leg. The turkey leg kiosk was closed due to rain and thunderstorm earlier, but had reopened soon as the rain stopped. While they went to get turkey leg, we went to try the It's A Small World ride, since the 8 year old in our company had not tried it yet.

I didn't get the typical photo production that I normally get when I go to a particular place. I suppose being in the moment got to me more than capturing the moment.

I Went To Disneyworld (part 4) and Watched the Festival of Fantasy Parade

The daytime Festival of Fantasy Parade is a must see attraction in Disney World. Thousands line the parade route to see the colorful pageantry and see their beloved Disney characters in the flesh. When we were there the parade was slated at 3 pm and the day was one of those typical Florida summer day, 90+ degree F and 80+% humidity. Brutal conditions and yet I stayed under the sun as much as I could. I felt faint a couple of times so I had to go under whatever shade I could find and just watch the parade from afar. Keeping hydrated is not enough sometimes.
