Carla's Make A Wish, Day 2

We woke up bright and early Monday morning....

 or at least I did!  Carla was so tuckered out from Sunday's traveling and then Give Kids the World adventures, plus the time change...

 but after talking about getting up so that we could see Mickey, Minnie and the Princesses....
 Carla was finally ready for her day!
 Cody was busy texting his Sydney...
 We were on our way to breakfast
 and ate at the "Gingerbread House" (check out all those toys).
After breakfast, we went to meet Mickey and Minnie...but all we saw was Pluto, so we hung out with him for a while and then realized...
 Mickey and Minnie were in the theater!!!
 They were so sweet to Carla, and even signed her Mickey doll!  We can't say enough good things about how our family has been treated!

 After meeting the mice, we were off to The Magic Kingdom, where Carla had a date with the Princesses!
 Hey, don't tell me you wouldn't get distracted by a huge pile of cookies!

 On our way back to our villa, look at all the wonder and happiness in Carla's eyes...
 My little Wright Family...
 And we are here!

 Cody helped Carla sign her name at the Ferry entrance and
 after a short boat ride, and a few hoops, we were in like flynn!

 Carla got to visit with the Princesses Belle, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty.  They were so kind and sweet to her!  And she was very animated and talkative!  (No!  Not Carla!)
 After the Princesses, we happened across a very cool Disney show at the castle.  It was SO COOL that I actually cried a little bit!

 Carla, however, did NOT cry!  She had an amazing time! (And Bobby got it ALL on video!)

 Cinderella's castle, from another angle.
 After the show, we had some lunch and then we were off to the "It's a Small World" ride.  This is where we experienced the true Make a Wish, Disney hospitality...as they saw us and escorted us to the front of the line.  WHAT?!  Holy Cow, they are amazing!
 Before getting escorted (maybe they just wanted this crazy lady out of the line)


 Carla, on her first "ride".   It's a Small World was very cool.
 After the Small World ride, we went across the road for the Peter Pan ride.  Which, was SUPER COOL as well.
 We have a picture of Cody, when he was 3, in this same spot.
 Here he is 15 years later :)
 Picture op....on our way to meet Rapunzel....

 Carla enjoyed visiting with Rapunzel and then...
 We went over to meet Tianna....
 And then she went to meet Ariel, and Eric....
 Ariel kissed her on the cheek.
 And then we went to meet Tinkerbell and her friend (I can't remember his name.)
and Finally.....
 Jasmine and Aladdin!  They both kissed her on the cheek too!
After the Princesses,  we went for a boat ride, and Carla got to drive!
 And just before leaving, Carla got an umbrella with her name on it.

It was a magical day in Disney World and then we came back to the GKTW village and had a Halloween party!  Tomorrow we will try out the Animal Kingdom....

Love, Jen
