Disney+ had a live broadcast of the fireworks at Epcot tonight. Jen and I watched the whole thing. It was more of a concert video than a fireworks show, but it was fun.

I mentioned before that we are planning on going to Orlando in January. Watching this thing tonight has taken our excitement level for the trip and shot it through the roof.

Jen is a Disney nut. I really am not, but I do enjoy going to the resort. I mean, there is a Star Wars area… they made it just for me. Still, I am feeling it just as much as she is. I suppose it could be partly due to the fact that we’ve been locked down for 2.5 years and haven’t even considered a trip anywhere. The last trip we went on was in February 2020. That was Disneyworld too. We got home just a few days before the real world came to its screeching halt.

The idea of going back is pretty much taking hold of both of us. The excitement is getting silly, and we’re still almost six months away.


On our last two big trips to Disneyworld I got really goofy and found a pair of clip on sunglasses that I could pop onto of my prescription glasses. I felt like it was funny and nerdy. Everyone else thought it was dumb.

I have new glasses now so those clip ons won’t work. We’re in the process of booking another trip to Orlando for early next year, so I think it’s time to start looking for new clip ons.

Have you ever looked at a pair of glasses and tried to determine what the model of the frames was? It’s tough, man. The writing is teeny tiny and I can’t see it at all. I mean, I wear glasses, right? I got the last set of shades through an ebay store. I hope I don’t have to go that route this time.

Oh, did I mention we’re going back to Disneyworld early next year? Covid-willing, of course.

Wish me luck on my sunglass thingie search.

On a slightly related note… if that film camera I mentioned yesterday works, do I take it to Florida with us? Just stick it in the camera bag and wait for the right moment? We will see.
