Disneymoon – Day 6

“Why do we have to grow up? I know more adults who have the children’s approach to life. They’re people who don’t give a hang what the Joneses do. You see them at Disneyland every time you go there. They are not afraid to be delighted with simple pleasures, and they have a degree of contentment with what life has brought – sometimes it isn’t much, either.

– Walt Disney

Disneymoon – Day Two

Let me put thirty two years into perspective for you, from a nerdy point of view.

The entire run of Transformers, from the original G1 cartoon and toys to the current Robots in Disguise cartoon and Michael Bay directed movies, happen in that time. That time frame started in the second console generation, after the Atari crash of 1983. Every Nintendo console that had ever been released in America came out in that time span. It reaches from the release of the second film by a young director named James Cameron called The Terminator to his creation of both of the highest grossing films of all time. Vince McMahon had not yet conceived of WrestleMania, and Alex Trebek had not yet begun his legendary run as host of Jeopardy!

Disneymoon – Planning and Day One

Never have your wedding reception the night before you’re leaving on the honeymoon, especially if your flight is leaving painfully early the next morning.

Our original plans called for the wedding ceremony and reception to happen on September 9th, our original anniversary date. Between the problems of a middle of the week wedding, sorting our schedules and about a dozen other factors conspiring against us, we were married on August 30th, but the wedding reception moved to the following weekend. With this change in plans, we were able to use Labor Day as part of our honeymoon plans, thus getting an extra paid day off. It sounded like a perfect plan.
