Postcard from Orlando

Do you live in Celebration, Orlando??? Anyone out there from Celebration? I love your little community, your town is so cute. Wow, a real life Disneyland Main Street. The first time we visited Celebration in 2005 we thought it was an amazing little 1950's American Town. We initially visited in search of a yarn store that turned out to be a clothes boutique with a shelf of yarn in the back.

This time visiting we found out it is a purpose built - by Disney - Town... so you can imagine how cute this little town is. Cute little man made lakes (with alligators), A Celebration Hotel (that you darn't take a child under 10 inside), Desperate Housewife style tree lined streets (no cute gardeners though), a cute little bookstore (with a desperately friendly shop owner) and "the doll shop".

Are the people paid there to be cute too? Everyone was so friendly and cheesy. Hubby and I were so obviously the British tourist, with the Virgin luggage label hanging off our buggy.

Apart from the trip to Celebration we have run wild through the Parks of Disney. Lazared Buzz Lightyear to bits, sat for hours on a curb-sides waiting for parades, licked enough mickey ice-creams and shot enough photos. The Bubela was called on stage for the Lion King Show - made me cry. The charactors are enjoying the Nosh laughing and them. Goofy wasn't too pleased with the Nosh bonging his wiskers throughout the photoshoot.

The weather is far too hot and the pool is 2 short of freezing.

The craft shopping has only just begun with magazine purchases. Clothes shopping is going crazy. Hubby has thing for buying every colour tee in every shop. Then coming out puzzled whilst checking out the bill with how he managed to spend so much in one shop.

Loving the pancakes. Worried about the scales when I return home.

Photos to follow.
