Memory Overload

We're home and re-entering the real world. I was looking forward even before we left to coming on here and writing all about my experiences, but now that it's time I'm in a sort of vapor lock. I've downloaded all the pictures from our cameras, yes we took two. Not including what is on our phones, we have over 1800 pictures. That's a lot to sort through, but it doesn't begin to touch on the real problem.

My brain is full.

I started lying awake sorting through my mental collection of Disney thoughts while we were still at the Caribbean Beach Resort. I didn't sleep really well because I spent half the night awake processing what had happened the day before. I'm not complaining, it was a good thing lying there in the quiet grinning away and remembering all we'd done and filing it away. I enjoyed our trip on so many levels this time around that it's left me with Disney Magic overload. There was the escape aspect, the nostalgia, the week-long anniversary celebration, the new appreciation for the work of the Imagineers, the understanding of Walt's dream come to life and all the simple fun of simply enjoying the parks as theme parks. The best part, though, and I think the first thing I'll write about, was watching my son take it all in as a child and a young man at the same time. I think that's the single most unique thing about this journey, the one thing I'll never recapture.

So for now, let me just say that Walt Disney World worked its magic once again. We had an amazing time. I'm refreshed and renewed and happy. And I'll begin telling you all about it as soon as I can :)
