|Fireworks at Cinderella's Castle. The Castle is decked out in Christmas lights that changed colors from white to blue to purple to pink to peach. It was simply magical.|

|We came out of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride and found Goofy, hanging out by himself. Walker stepped up and had a photo taken. The first week in February is a great time to visit Disney if you hate crowds.|
|Me, at Magic Kingdom last February|
Along with the Flower and Garden Festival, we're going to Magic Kingdom, of course, and for the first time we're also going to Animal Kingdom at Disney World and to Universal Studios. My mom is coming with us, and another family member is meeting us there. We decided to have breakfast with Mickey Mouse and his friends, which requires a reservation made well in advance. I made the first set of reservations back in October. When we had to change the dates, I called to change the breakfast reservation, too, and had just two choices: 7:25 or 10:30. I chose the later one, as getting up at the crack of dawn to make the 7:25 reservation just didn't appeal to me, especially in light of the fact that we plan to go to the Magic Kingdom that day, and we always stay for the fireworks. That would have been a really, really long day.
