2.) Tons of shows to sit at
3.) Smaller park = less walking
4.) It’s just not as magical as the other parks.  There, I said it.  Not as magical and no shame about it.

Amazing food, fantastic wine, good vibes, lovely people, beautiful scenery.  Pinch me now, I must be in heaven!

After Pete and my dad spent an evening skiing while my mom and I enjoyed delicious Thai food, we…
