Walt Disney World "Daddy/Daughter Jaunt" - October 1998 - Introduction

Intro

Day 2
Day 3
Addendum

This is a re-print of an original post to the ThompsonFamilyWeb site about a trip my daughter Natalie and I took to Walt Disney World in October of 1998. It is completely unaltered from my original post.
October 2nd - 4th, 1998
Talk about culture shock.
At 7:00 in the morning my 5 year old daughter Natalie (a.k.a. Nat) and I (40 year-old John, a.k.a. Dad) were boarding a plane in Newark, NJ. It was a dreary day with temperatures in the high 40's. A mere four hours later we were enjoying the 80+ degrees and Florida sunshine in the "Piano Pool" at Disney's All Star Music Resort in Walt Disney World. But I get ahead of myself.
This short (3 day) trip came out of a desire on my part to spend some quality dad/daughter time with Nat. Since Nat's little sister Charlotte was born a year ago June, my wife Andie and I felt that it was a good idea to plan special events with just Nat. When the baby is older we will do the same with her. Nat & Andie had gone together on a trip to Arizona to visit Andie's sister last winter and now it was my turn. My first choice for a daddy/daughter jaunt was, of course, Walt Disney World.
