Awhile back Tink started a Twas the night before WDW thread! Many of you contributed and it was AWESOME!! My DD loved it and so we revamped it a little and she used it for her Oral Interpretation night!(For those of you not familiar with this, it is where the children pick a poem, memorize the poem, and then recite/perform it for their peers and their families. Very BIG deal to my daughter who aspires to be an actress someday! ) Anyway I wanted to share with you the final poem she performed that night!!
'Twas the Night before Walt Disney World BY AnonyMOUSE Performed by Emily
'Twas the night before Walt Disney World and all thru the house no one was sleeping thinking of Mickey Mouse. Momma has checked all the suitcases once more. Everything is packed and ready by the door! Everyone is all snuggled up in their beds… with visions of mickey bars dancing in their heads.
Too excited to sleep they ponder about Splash Mountain and Soarin’. Thinking of fast passes instead of snoring!
Looking at the clock to see how much time has passed by, Papa thinks of Ariel and lets out a sigh.
The children have their autograph books clutched in their hands and cannot wait till they make it down Mainstreet to Fantasyland!
When way down the hall there arose such a clatter. I slipped out of bed to see what was the matter.
There’s Momma and Papa checking the ticket stash, "Oh my "says Momma, “We’re gonna need more cash!”
Out by the window what did I see, is that Tinkerbell, or maybe Jiminy Cricket staring at me?
Ah I think it is just the neighbor’s glowing porch light, I should get to bed and sleep a little tonight!!
Checking my watch, it’s still hours till dawn, and I am sure that was Goofy I saw out on the lawn!!
Pretending to sleep is a skill all must master, While willing the clock’s hands to spin a bit faster.
The visions of Disney make children anticipate the moment they finally arrive at Maingate!
ON DINOSAUR, ON DUMBO, ON TOWER OF TERROR… ON TEST TRACK, ON KALI, ON TEACUPS!! WHAT’S MERRIER?
I heard yet one more familiar voice this night
So I sprang from my bed and caught a glimpse of Snow White.
She was walking with 7 little guys down the lane, And she sounded so sweet as she called them by name:
"Come on Dopey, and Sneezy, Sleepy and Happy
And Grumpy, and Bashful, and Doc
Make it snappy!!
Back to Walt Disney World we need to go.
We have lots of folks waiting for us don’t you know!!!
As I strained to see these 8 so familiar to me
I gazed in amazement beyond the oaktree,
A dress so yellow she wore, like the sun it did glow.
Her face as lovely and fair as the roses that grow!!
Seven there along with her hung to every word she’d say
All different but special in their own little way!
So off they went with a rhythmic HI-HO
Hurry, they must make it to their first show!
Now back off to bed for tomorrow will be
The first day of a journey so special to me,
As I pull up the covers and close my eyes tight…
I hear in the distance, HI-HO, HI-HO and a very good night!!
She did a great job and had a blast preparing and performing this!! SOO
THANK YOU TO ALL WHO CONTRIBUTED TO THIS POEM!!!
We are hoping she will do this on the Cruise for the Talent Show!! I am sure she will as she loves to perform!!!
