‘Twas the night before Disney and all through the house,
No one was asleep, too excited for the Mouse!
Our bags were long packed, placed in the car with care,
Trimmed with magical luggage tags, so they too would get there.
The kids tossed with excitement and glee in their beds
While visions of Mickey bars swirled in their heads.
And with me perusing my list and he checking his,
We found how impossible getting rest is.
When all of a sudden the panic struck me.
I jumped up, hit the light, as I needed to see!
I pulled out my trusty planner, checking it twice.
This feeling of dread, it was really not nice!
Touring plans were made, reservations secured
Our days planned to a “T” so we’d never be bored.
The flights were confirmed, the boarding passes in hand
Along with a map of New Fantasyland.
What could I have missed, I have covered it all?
I’d spent 12 months planning so we’d all have a ball.
Some coins for pressed pennies, and lanyards for pins.
Books for autographs, even swimming pool fins!
I wracked my brain madly for the smallest of clues,
For a moment I thought, “we should have taken the cruise!”
Disney is overwhelming, there’s so much to see,
Did I forget something crucial, how could it be?
Then as fast as it came, the panic dispersed
I put the planner and plane tickets back in my purse.
I settled back down, gave my husband a smile
And recalled what I’d forgotten for a brief little while.
That Disney is family, that Disney is fun,
Disney is magical and second to none!
No matter how the trip starts, or how it will end,
We’ll have the best time thanks to a few of our friends!
There’s Goofy and Pluto and Donald and Minnie!
Daisy and Chipmunks -most of all Mickey!
They are the heart of the Kingdom, the keys to the world
Who hold in their hands, the joy of all boys and girls.
We’ll be seeing them soon, and what fun it will be!
To laugh, play, and explore with my sweet family.
A place like no other, an empire of dreams
Faith, trust, and pixie dust- all I needed it seems.
All would be fine, I knew this to be true!
Here’s how I was certain and I’ll share it with you.
As I started to drift, my last thought for the night…
Boy, I don't like flying, but can’t wait for the flight!
