To celebrate Doug becoming an RN we went on a fabulous trip to Orlando Florida. It was Doug's first time and he loved it. We used Shane's (my brother in law) buddy passes to fly there and that was an adventure...Shane flew with us to help us get there quicker and he stayed and played at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
They had the most delicious butter beer you could imagine. After a hot day in lines and rides we stopped by the three broom sticks to sit and sip down the fantastic drink.
This is a crapy picture of a great story. They have a wand shop(Ollivanders) and they choose one person out of the crowd to come and pick out a wand just for them. After the first time we went in Doug and Shane were determined to be picked. So we got in line again with hopes that they could be the special person. I really could care less, but they were sure excited. We even made a bet that if one of did get picked then the other two had to buy them the wand that was picked for them. Well the trick was acting REALLY excited to be in the shop and that is just what I did. I played it up really well and guess who got picked? Yep, I sure did. Those two boys couldn't believe it.
The dueling brothers
Doug met a celebrity bird from Pirates of the Caribbean.
These little worker birds were all over the disney pier and beach. Doug and I were talking about how nice the area was and not dirty at all. The birds were picking up little pieces of trash and flying off with them. I looked at these two and said, "Doug! That is amazing! These little birds work for Disney. They have little name tags! I am sure they are trained to clean up the area." I sure didn't think he would believe me, but he looked over quickly in amazement, searching for their name tags. Priceless!
This poor girl had her brother spin a wheel and it said what creature was going to be put in the box. Doug really wanted me to do this part, but luckily I didn't have photo ID on me, so I was spared. One of the options on the wheel was a snake, so I'm extremely thankful I didn't have my ID.
