Wordless Wednesday — The Castle

by Janice

Moonlight Magic at Disney World…

We just got back last night from our fabulous family vacation to Orlando. Tonight, I was looking through my photos, and I discovered this one of the castle in the Magic Kingdom.

I shot it from the side of the castle as we were walking around to Fantasyland behind the castle to go on some more rides. Just as I was about to take the picture, the crew came to block off that part of the park to set up for the fireworks. They were so kind though and let me grab the shot. I am so grateful. I love this photo.

I will post more pictures soon, as well as more in depth reviews of my experiences at Disney World.

I had only been to Disneyland once when I was six, and I had no idea how much I was missing! We had such an incredible time and I became a huge fan of Disney World. I can’t wait to go back!

It really is a magical, wonderful place.

Now it’s your turn… add your Wordless Wednesday link below.

Sadly we have never been to any of the Disney theme parks. I keep holding that one day they will be old enough. Hope you had a thoroughly brilliant time.
