As we were waiting for the parade to start, Julia made friends with a man in the wheelchair parked next to Hope’s stroller. He couldn’t speak – only made vocal “sounds”. Julia still managed to carry on a conversation with him. He was asking about her pins – he didn’t know what they were. She showed them to him and explained that she collected them. At the end of the parade when she was saying goodbye – she took off one of her pins and gave it to him. She didn’t think too much about it, but as we were waiting on line to get her sorcerer cards, the man came over to us and thanked her with his greatest effort to say the words. I have to say, it made me choke up a bit.

Beautiful family and an excellent TR! Was very nice to experience along with you. Hope you go again soon.
Thank you so much for reading along!!


Way to go Julia.
Thank you!


How sweet of Julia. I’m sure her kindness was so appreciated.
She is my sweet girl. Funny, because she really didn't see it as a big deal - but yes, and she still remembers him.


I'm always amazed at how much a simple kindness from one person can make the world of difference for the other. Super proud of Julia, and she's not even my kid!! I can only imagine how proud you are of her.
Thank you! Yes- I am always proud of my girls!



Once again, your kids' kindness and manners impress me. Good job not just to Julia, but to you too for raising such great kids!
Awww... thanks so much!


What a beautiful thing Julia did. I teared up reading that.❤
Thank you!


You must be so proud of Julia! Such a simple gesture but such a loud message 😀
I am so proud of her. Sometimes I worry she's too kind in a not so kind world. (Outside of WDW lol)


Thank you!

I was ready to leave MK, but Hope and Julia needed to see Monsters one last time – so off we went, back to Tomorrowland.

Julia also wanted to find a T-shirt that we had seen one of our first days in the park. Unfortunately, it was out of stock EVERYWHERE. Lesson learned – if she sees something next time, buy it then and don’t wait!

As we were getting ready to leave, the castle show was taking place and Hope wanted to see it before we left.

So Julia and I found it as a perfect opportunity to get one more Dole Whip. We left Ross with Hope and dashed over to Adventureland.

When we got there, the line was tremendous! So I did something I had been wanting to do all week!

When we were done, we went to say goodbye to Figment, but the pavilion had already closed! We were so sad. The same thing happened a few trips back and Hope had a HUGE meltdown, so it was nice that this time she just made a sad face. I think Julia and I were more upset than she was!

We went to ride SOARN and realized that LWTL was also closed for the night.

The end of the night was coming too soon. Julia wanted to do the Orange Mission Space, so Ross braved the ride to Mars while Hope and I just orbited the earth.

Finally we rode Test Track one last time.

Then it was time to head out.

mmm All that snacking around the WS looks good! Looking forward to food and wine this year, since I've only been to flower and garden.

Good thing you got that picture in front of that Tomorrowland sign! They took it down this week and they are putting up a new one soon I guess. Not sure why they felt the need to spend money on that... I like the current one!

Julia really wanted to hop on Spaceship earth one last time, but Hope was done, so I told Ross to take Julia on, while Hope and I headed back to POP. On the way out, they stopped for a picture.

The bus line for POP was tremendous! By the time Hope and I got on a bus, we saw Ross and Julia heading to the line. They actually ended up on the same bus as us – so we all rode back together.

Once back at the resort, the kids crashed. Ross and I walked to the food court to fill our mugs and pay off our bill. When we returned to the room, Ross fell asleep while I stayed up to pack. I finished up around 2:00AM and then crashed.
