In December of 2006, my wife and I said I do and hopped a plane for Orlando and the Magic Kingdom to spend our Honeymoon. We had been planning it for as long as we had planned the wedding, and had resolved to act like children despite being in our 30s. Wearing our ears, a bridal veil for her and a top hat for me, we entered and were immediately greeted by a cast member who said we MUST go to Town Hall and get buttons to let everyone know that we were newlyweds! Well, who were we to argue?
We arrived at The Crystal Palace for breakfast and our table had been decorated with confetti (I can only assume they saw the buttons and hats at check in), and had a lovely meal with everyone congratulating us as they passed. It was wonderful and felt like they were celebrating along with us! Later on, as we came off of Pirates of the Caribbean, a woman stopped us and asked if we would PLEASE be part of the afternoon parade down Main Street and represent all the newlyweds. We were honored and jumped at the opportunity! It was a blast to wave and have people cheer as we went by. Once it was over, we were driven back up Main Street in the trolley so that we could continue our day.
We’ve been back twice since (Our 2nd and 6th anniversaries) and always smile and wave as we walk up Main Street to each other as much as to little kids as they look at us. We plan to celebrate our 10th anniversary walking through the gates of the Magic Kingdom as well, and we hope to keep building memories for years to come!
