June 28, Convention, Family-Style, Disney World

Conventions, family-style. I love the conventions my husband goes to. They encourage families to come and they organize family outings. This time, being we were in Orlando, they organized Disney outings. They hand you everything you need, you hop on their bus and go. We had hors d'oeuvre and desserts by the Disney staff at Epcot and we were then turned loose to explore. Then, after the "Illuminations" presentation (fireworks at 9:00 PM) they closed the new ride called "Soaring" and opened it just for us. What a fun ride! It is like Imax but with seats that move and lift you up and down. Wind blows at you and you feel like you are really paragliding. It "glides" over California. You feel like you could kick that guy in the canoe with your foot as you go over him. It is so realistic, I tried. I wished this ride could have lasted longer. My husband and I went on our own to Disney World's Magic Kingdom the last full day we were there. The lines are pretty long but you don't notice it that much, there is so much to look at. The parade and fireworks in the evening were some of the highlights. The murals in the castle were awesome. They are made from glass and ceramic tiles about 1/2 inch square. Everything was extremely clean even with thousands of people there. Here is a picture of one of the beautiful murals that are in the castle.
