“When there’s a smile in your heart…”

9 Nov

My favorite Walt Disney World memory would have to be from our most recent trip over Halloween this year… It was my 2-year-old son Robert’s first trip to WDW, so the entire trip will forever be a special memory, however, there were several magical moments that stand out.

We went to the Magic Kingdom on our first day because we had tickets to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. We were able to get in to the park around 5 o’clock and decided to take Robert on Pirates of the Caribbean for his first Disney ride. I know, a 2-year-old on PotC? Yep! And he LOVED it! I’m a HUGE PotC fan (ride and movies) and Robert had been watching the movies before our trip. He loves “Jack Carrow” as he calls him and always smiles at his entrance in Curse of the Black Pearl. Well, when Robert first saw Captain Jack on the PotC ride he was thrilled! He immediately said “Jack Carrow!” and grinned big.

After that first ride all he talked about was Jack Carrow and “argh” – his word for pirates…he can say “pirates” fine, but for whatever reason he likes to say “argh” instead. Could be because he’s a true pirate like his Daddy! All we heard the remainder of our trip was “more argh” and “Jack Carrow”. What a great first trip for Robert and the rest of us!

More “magical moments” from our latest Disney trip in the days to come… ºOº
