Disney Blog Hop: Magic Moments

Welcome to those coming from the Disney Blog Hop! A big thanks to Babes in Disneyland for hosting and Manda's Disney Blog for co-hosting this week! If you haven't yet, go check out both of those blogs - they are fabulous!

This week's Disney Blog Hop theme is Magic Moments. There are 2 specific moments that come to mind when I heard this topic and they both happened on our trip this past March!

The first one was when we went to the ESPN Wide World of Sports for a Braves game. We are Braves fans anyways and love going to their games, so it was such a pleasure to see them in Disney! About half way through the game there was a foul ball hit in our direction. It actually went into the press box above us and since they aren't allowed to keep the balls, they asked if there was a kid around. My husband happened to be standing up holding our son at the time and he got the ball!! Then another inning later we realized that Bobby Cox was sitting in the top row of our section! The man sitting in front of us asked if we wanted our ball signed and we said yes, so he took it up there and got it signed by Bobby Cox! It was such an awesome experience!

The second magical moment happened at The Festival of the Lion King show. We ended up sitting in the third row in the benches on the floor in the warthog seats. Nicholas was mesmerized the whole time by the show and loved it, just clapping along and smiling the whole time! At the end of the show, they come around and pick out a few kids to come up and be in the parade. Nicholas was chosen! The lady that was in our section took him by the hand and gave him his instrument and held his hand the whole time around the parade! He loved it. He shook his instrument and just smiled the entire time. He just had a blast and it was wonderful for me to see his excitement! I think this moment is what truly started his obsession with the Lion King! He actually ended up getting a Simba stuffed animal for one of his souvenirs!

Each of our Disney trips have been filled with wonderful magical moments - that is what keeps us coming back each year! I can't wait to see what other Magic Moments we have in the future!
