    Disneyland in One Day Dazzles 130 kids

    From this news source: http://www.mickeynews.com/News/Displ...id_E_10186Kids

    "I'm really excited -- I still can't believe it," said Larissa Dixon, 11, a Grade 6 student. "I want to meet Mickey and Minnie and Goofy.
    "I'm the first person in my family to go to Disneyland."
    Kyla Elkins, 10, a Grade 5 student, hopes to meet Goofy, Pluto and Mickey, "because they're cool and cute. I can't go to bed -- I'm too excited."
    Joanne Carruthers, the school's administrative assistant, saw firsthand how a Disneyland trip can open up a child's horizons.
    "I was on the trip three years ago, and it's an incredible day," said Carruthers. "The kids are given disposable cameras and backpacks -- they don't have to bring a thing.
    "It's changed these people's lives."
    Teacher Connie Barkase is looking forward to shepherding the happy flock today.
    "I grew up in Strathcona -- I never went to Disneyland as a kid," Barkase said yesterday. "It's great that someone has come forward to show these kids where they can go."

    Here I was expecting a story about flash photography or spiking the juice with pixie dust.
