Default Photo TR: Dragon Flight (April 2018, MinnieMomofOne)

Hello, MOs! It has been awhile since my last TR, mostly because I have yet to find a good way to upload and share photos. However, last week's visit was so much fun I feel compelled to find a way to share it! So, I'll start with stories & figure out photos.

Samantha, our soon-to-be-eight-years-old DD, has been fascinated with dragons for a couple of years. This intense fascination started with DH began reading from the Wings of Fire series with Samantha. They've since finished the series and are awaiting the next novel with the same level of anticipation kids used to have for the next Harry Potter book.

Samantha does not like roller coasters. She did Mine Train once and the Goofy coaster in fantasy land once. We tried Star Tours once. Those were all one time rides for her and she is firm she will never do them again. While she may change her mind in adolescence, right now she is very, very anti-thrill ride. However, she loves Soaring. Many of the review of Flight of Passage in Pandora compare it to Soaring.

So I told Samantha we were going to ride a dragon on this trip. That's all the child talked about the week before we left. So, in her honor, this is the Dragon Flight TR!

So fun! I remember your last trip report. Our daughters are right at the same age and Iím also a mom of one. We, too, loved the Wings of Fire series. My dd8 loves any fantasy type novels really. The Land of Stories is another great series, especially for the fairytale inclined. Itís worth a read for Disney fans as well. We are on a mid series hiatus as the content got a little heavy for her. Sheís not a Harry Potter fan at the moment bc of heavy/scary content (of book one!) if that gives you an idea.

Iím looking forward to hearing her ďFODĒexperience.
