Come and join us for another installment of the WDW-Memories podcast, where I try to make it possible for you relive your Walt Disney World Memories when you can't actually be there.
So today kind of snuck up on me. As I went to bed last night I realized I had never sent out a message seeking comments on Twitter, Google+, or Facebook. So sorry about that folks, but I figured you’d rather have podcast. So I’m just rolling with the initial request I’ve got.
Today’s request is from Kyle (you know, the same Kyle from Memory 048). He had also requested Move it! Shake it! Celebrate it! As I explained to him, not living in Florida causes some limitation as to what I can record, one of those being the latest parades. So I decided to share the parade I do have, and it’s actually from Disneyland and not Walt Disney World.
This is our California trip for my brothers wedding in June of 2010. It’s our second day in California. We’ve had a great day at Disneyland already, but as much as it pains me, we must leave before closing. We are still on Eastern time, and while it might be 7PM here in CA, it’s 10PM to our bodies, and two-year-old Susie hasn’t napped all day. We’ve had a great time but we decide it’s best to head out, however to get out we must negotiate the parade crowd who’s waiting already. So half-way down Main Street, the parade begins and we’re stuck. We decide to just stop and watch. I take Susie out of the stroller and put her on my shoulders, then try a couple of different spots, but get told we’re blocking the path, or we’re blocking an entry way. So finally, we decide we should try to make it to a bathroom for Susie before the parade ends and everyone else does the same thing. Don’t worry, we don’t actually go in, but instead find a spot in front of the Carnation Cafe, and finish out the parade there.
