My Teenager Smiled And It's Because Of Disney World






I'm sure you've heard all about how magical Disney World is.

I mean, the castle is breathtaking:





But there's another reason why Disney World is magical.


My teenager smiles there. Genuine smiles where I can see his dimples.


Sometimes I wonder if he's forgotten how to smile because I get looks like this:





But at Disney World, he's full of excitement. On the plane ride over, he had a wide grin on his face.



I'm grimacing because of the turbulence. He loved it.



Tommy did full belly laughs at the Coke store at Disney Springs because he was mixing gross concoctions and making his sister and I try them:




Laughing.



Smiling.



He even chuckled with his sister. They were....GETTING ALONG!




He gave genuine hugs to certain characters:




Yes. Disney World is a magical place.




And we can't wait to go back.
