Few months ago, we tossed around the idea of traveling to one of Dan’s favorite places in Switzerland. We put that in the back burner to be more budget conscience. Then he asked if I’d like to go to Orlando-Disney World instead for my birthday.
Ahem… I have a thing for Disney (not just the princesses, going back to Tinker Bell- and a happy thought making you fly in Peter Pan, to all the princesses up to Belle), and can quote several of the movies from beginning to end, including the songs… yeah… I don’t bring this up too often. But another thing I have a ‘thing’ for, are Killer Whales, native to my home, Seattle, where it’s commonly known as an Orca. My best dreams have been the ones where I saw Killer whales in my dreams. So when Dan asked, would I want to go to Orlando (Disney World+Epcot Center+Animal Kingdom+Sea World) I lit up big time and jumped up and down saying, ‘we are going to Disney world’ for months… to which, Dan lovingly said, “I don’t need a daughter, I’ve got you.”
Aside from the crowds, I think Disney World, and Sea World are one my favorite man-made places! It’s the promise of imagination, colors, and wonders, and beauty, and the cuteness all into one! Yes, I don’t like seeing Orca’s in captivity, but I’ve spent many many dollars trying to see them in the wild on cruises, ferries, and kayaks, and could never get enough. So, after seeing the Orca show at the edge of my seat nearly crying, we walked to where the viewing tank holding 6 Orcas was, and I just parked myself there with sheer glee for about 30 min, and kept photographing until we ran out of card space, and we were late to get to the airport.
So keep scrolling and read the question below:
You can see my reflection on the tank surface… yeah, I was happy there… Return to Disney World after nearly 20 years, I’m a wannabee-Imaginator.
So, I shared where my favorite (man-made) place was.
