Last February my family attended Disney’s Social Media Moms Celebration, and while we were blessed to be far away from the three feet of snow that blanketed the ground here at home, Florida was far from hot and steamy. During the Friday full day of sessions, my husband and family braved the Magic Kingdom in the rain. That evening we shivered through our last chilly night of the conference and hoped for a nicer Saturday before flying back to the Maryland snow.
While the rain didn’t follow us in to Saturday, the gloomy cold certainly did. We ran through our morning riding Thunder Mountain Railroad with cozy gloves to warm our hands and bracing ourselves against the wind as Dumbo flew through the air. In the final hours before we left for our flight home, we walked from Fantasyland into Tomorrowland when suddenly for the first time in days…seemingly in weeks…the sun broke through the clouds.
Everyone around us stopped walking and burst into applause. The people walking towards the Tomorrowland Speedway, everyone heading into Cosmic Ray’s for lunch, the line forming at Space Mountain – everyone cheered and clapped for the warmth of the sun that completed the magic that is Disney.
