Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
After surprising my little sisters and their friend yesterday, we were all excited for a big day out at Magic Kingdom today... Boy, did we enjoy ourselves! It may have been excessively hot and sunny out all day, but we had a blast!
We figured out how to work our Fast Passes just right so that we could use them in the morning and then make additional selections after each ride. We ended up going on just about every single ride we wanted to go on, minus two or three with wait times of almost two hours, and only had to stand on the actual line for two attractions (one with a five minute wait and one with a ten minute wait). It was incredible!
We also paid attention when making those Fast Pass selections so that we weren't traipsing back and forth across the entire Park. We worked our way through each land in Magic Kingdom, and we were able to pace ourselves and fit in time for lunch and dinner as well.
The girls had an excellent time with each other, switching up who they would each ride with for each attraction so that no one was ever left out. They all looked out for one another and compromised on what they wanted to do. It was fantastic.
The only time we had an issue was when Twin B's glasses fell off as we got onto one of the rides. There was a bit of drama involving us panicking and a Cast Member who I'll just say wasn't exactly in the Disney spirit at the time. In the end, the ride had to be stopped for a moment but we got the glasses back and were able to continue on our merry way.
The girls didn't start getting cranky until it was already after 8:00pm, and by that point we had run out of attractions to Fast Pass and were discussing leaving the Park anyway. It was a good thing that we left when we did, and that we had stopped in a store to buy ponchos earlier, because it started down pouring as we left! Waiting on line for the monorail, my sister and I were saying how great it felt because we were getting a nice breeze, but not the rain since we were in a covered walkway. But when it was time to get off of the monorail and head toward the car, we all had to get the ponchos on quickly and make a run for the tram. Except, we couldn't run because the ground was soaked, so we had to walk very carefully and slowly instead. We were getting soaked through the sides of the tram, and had to maneuver through puddles in the parking lot when we got to the row in which our car was parked, but when we took off the ponchos, we were completely dry underneath.
Unfortunately, our good-byes with our friends were kind of rushed because of the rain, but I know that we'll see them again whenever they come back down to Florida, and we'll continue to keep in touch online. It was so great to be able to experience Disney with them, and I know that we'll all cherish these memories.

My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
