In 2006, I took my first solo trip to Walt Disney World.  Part of the fun of going by myself was getting to do what I wanted when I wanted.

On this particular day I was strolling through Morocco when this trio appeared magically.  There was no line to see them so I walked right up.  Genie gave me a big hug and Jasmine was polite and said hello.  But Aladdin  – well…. he was quite a chatty fellow.

He kept asking me about my trip and what I had been doing up until then.  Of course he was in character so his questions were like “so my lady, from what far off place did your magic carpet bring you from?”.  He asked if I had seen any ‘special lamps’ and which point Genie offered to come with me. This went on for quite a bit of time.  The four of us were having so much fun goofing around that we did not notice that a line had now formed.  And there were all these little girls waiting to meet them.

My time with this fabulous trio was over but what an experience it was.
