Were Gonna Be Famous!

Some of the best memories I have with my kiddos involve Disney. We have take 3 trips to the "World" with them, and we feel like that has been plenty.  We are not that family that goes 2-3 times every year - however, my heart does a little flutter when I think of my girlie meeting her favorite princess, or Brody getting kissed by Snow White, or having to bribe Sis on the roller coaster ($20 y'all!!) only to have her love it, or tearing up nightly at the Wishes fireworks show.  Ah yes, Disney tugs at my heart strings.

And so when I received a call last October from the Ad company in charge of their latest campaign, "Memories", and found out that they wanted to use some of my Disney footage they found from our last trip on Vimeo, I freaked out!!! Uh, feature my kids in a national commercial?  Uh yeah.

So I signed the tons of paperwork and uploaded my movie.

and waited.

and waited.

and Christmas came & went.

and I forgot all about it.

Until last Friday at 5 pm.  I got a phone call....y'all we are not only in 2 national airing commercials, we are also featured 5 times in the nightly Cinderella Castle show (WDW) and It's A Small World show (DL)!!  The commercials started airing this week and I caught this one during Good Morning America yesterday.  Try to see us - we are in 2 spots!!!

 Did you see us???
The adorable girl & her funny momma screaming on the ride at the beginning?
And the cute cute cute boy & his Daddy in the space rocket?

Isn't that awesome???

How about this one:
look for the cute boy & girl jumping in front of the castle at the beginning

those are my 2 cuties!!!

And if you really want to humor me, here is the Cinderalla Castle show.  It's a 10 min clip, but my kids could watch it over & over.  Look for us:

1:39 - Sissy in front of the castle in pink
2:12-2:17 - Matt & Brody in Rocket ship ride (Matt is wearing an orange visor)
5:35 - Matt in a red shirt, back to the screen on Thunder Mountain Railroad (very quick)
7:05 - Brody & Sissy playing big African drums
7:37 - Sissy & Me singing to the camera

Oh how I have been begging Matt to take us for a quick trip- I just want to see us in the show while it is still airing!!!  Anyone want to take us???  I have a few friends who are going for Spring Break and I am insanely jealous that they get to see this in person! 

I guess for now, I just will have to settle for seeing us on tv....... sigh......

I'm supposed to be going to Disney Land in December. I hope that castle video is still playing then.

Looks like I need to get Mallory a princess costume to wear when we visit!
