Where in the World Wednesday: More Disney

It's Wednesday (at least it still is on the West Coast, anyway), so it's time for my second go-round of Classy in Philadelphia's Where in the World Wednesday!

Says Classy in Philly: The idea of WITWW is to post a picture of you in someplace in the world... it doesn't have to be somewhere foreign or tropical. Just a picture of you somewhere that you consider traveling.

This week I want to finish up what I started last week: the Disney trip I went on with my mom and sister for Christmas and New Year's in 1998. While we were at Disney World, we stayed at what is now Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter (back then it was just Port Orleans). We had stayed there on a previous trip when I was in elementary school, and picked it again because it wasn't heinously expensive and because we liked it.

The walkways were lined with faux hitching posts with horse heads on the top. The whole place had a pseudo-Southern atmosphere. It was authentic enough for this Northern girl!

We met some princesses at the Magic Kingdom. I'm betting that the princess job is not as glamorous as it looks. And also that those costumes could use a good laundering. We went to Epcot, where I apparently didn't take any pictures, and to Hollywood Studios, where I rocked the Star Wars speeder outside the Star Tours attraction.

Judging by the change of clothes, it got quite a bit warmer the day we went to Hollywood Studios.

Sometime in the next couple of years I intend to drag Jason along to Disneyland, now that we live just a few hours away from it. I've never done Disney California-style, and Jason's never done any Disney at all! It's my mission to make up for his bleak, deprived, Mickey-less childhood... and luckily for me, he's all for it.

Looks like fun! Boy, you and your sister don't look alike or anything, huh? ;)

dude, a friend of mine from college is the little mermaid now. the figure-skater-skin-tone top is truly craptacular.

I've only ever been to Disneyland. Anton has done both plus all the other parks, and is insistent on going again (and again and again) but I'm waiting for Disney to instate some type of "Grown Up Day". I've reached a point in my life that crowds and other people's children seriously kill my enjoyment of anything.

Great pictures! You should definitely take Jason to Disneyland, that would be a ton of fun, especially because you're so close!

Cute Disney pictures! I love princesses!

I'm not sure if you did, but make sure you leave a quick comment with your link in the WITWW blog post so I and others can find your post :)

Thanks so much for participating :)
