Today is Wordless Wednesday and I’m taking part, once again, in Focused on the Magic’s Blog Hop!  This week’s theme is Parades!  

I have to admit something kind of embarrassing as a Disney World fan:  I don’t love parades.  I want to really, really love them (and I do end up enjoying them) but I don’t get too excited about it.  As awesome as Disney World’s parades are, I’d rather be riding rides than holding a good spot for the parade, waiting for it to get to us, and then having to get out of the crowd when it’s over.  My attitude, however, has been changed.

On our trip to Disney World in September, my family and I saw the Festival of Fantasy Parade for the first time.  Wow.  I could have cried, watching that parade–the kind of tears you get when you watch Wishes or The Kiss Goodnight.  It was so beautiful.  The costumes!  The colors!  The characters!  The new-ness of it.  

This is a parade I could watch over and over.  Here are some glimpses from it.
