:) **COMPLETE**A decade of Disney Dreaming - August 2017

Well exactly 12 months to the day and nearly the hour, I embark again on simply sharing what we got up to on our holiday this year. I know some of you enjoy posting a reply and I will always post on here when I update - may be worth subscribing to this thread, as given past experiences it does fill the winter and spring



Welcome to 2017


For anyone who read any of my previous ramblings - Welcome back

and if you missed them they are here


2013 is a click here - Bel13ve

2014- Meet me in the land of hope and dreams

2015 - SpectroMagically Taking on the worlds
Five weeks of magic and more


2016 - Follow that Dream, newly completed trip report

As always in Glorious Spectromagic I present

2017 - A decade of Disney Dreams



It would be rude to start without a nod to loads of what has gone before , and I once again admit the title for this year brought about great debate at home.

The boys won!

My title was Kingdom of Days ...
if only to have my final Springsteen reference for this trip!

to me it was top of the soundtrack for this summer



The pre trip report


I hope the pre trip report adds a something as a background, If you have not shared any of my previous ramblings , you are very welcome to have a look at the stories of the past and just add 1 year onto the 2016 intro!


Here we go then!
