Orlando 2000 -- Letting Kids be Kids
Day Two -- Friday, June 9, 2000Friday was Sea World day. Families managed breakfast on their own and met up at Sea World, many arriving before the 9:00 am park opening. A sea of people with Children with Diabetes shirts were visible any where you looked in the park. Everyone was on their own for the morning.
Many families attended the 10:00 am Dolphin Show, and more than a few kids -- and parents -- got a little wet from the splashes. Of course, the dolphin soaking was a mere drizzle compared to the flood that awaited families who ignored the repeated warnings at the Killer Whale Show. They got really, really soaked there!
After the killer whale soaking, everyone headed to the Shamu Pavilion for lunch and a chance to mingle and meet some of the sponsors. We had the afternoon free until 4:00 pm, when families returned to hear the Pump Girls sing and dance. Many kids joined the Pump Girls at the front of the stage, singing, clapping their hands, and dancing (a little). Pump Girl fans can enjoy three MPEG clips of them from their show: Clip 1, Clip 2, Clip 3. Each is a 15 second movie (1.3 MB). Everyone enjoyed their show, and afterwards the Pump Girls signed autographs for all the kids.
After dinner, some families stayed at Sea World while others returned to the hotel to relax at the pool. The pool was filled with children with diabetes, and parents enjoyed a cold drink and the company of new found friends.
Everyone had a wonderful time and looked forward to a good night's sleep in anticipation of Disney World on Saturday.
