A Stitch in Time: Disney World, Teenagers & Giant Stuffed Animals
The one souvenir that my teenage daughter wanted from Disney World was a giant sized Stitch stuffed animal. We're talking a blue, furry alien that would require another plane ticket.
I held out as long as I could, and then, on our last night, tried to cook up a magical idea.
We sent the teenagers away to wander the park. I grabbed Stitch and bee lined it back to our hotel. Our sweet hotel concierge, Mary, hid Stitch behind her desk.
The girls returned to the hotel. We all got ready and left for dinner. As we got into the elevator, we gave Mary the thumbs up.
While we were away, Mary created a Stitch situation in our hotel room.
When we returned after dinner, the girls opened the door and wondered why the television was on.
Then Ruth screamed and ran to her bed. There was Stitch, wrapped in ever charge cord that we had in the room, watching TV and eating a cookie and some gummies.
It was a magical, happy last night in the Magic Kingdom for Ruth.
