Kicker: Small world

MARY REICHARD, HOST: Talk about a thoughtful husband!

Clark Ensminger knew his wife Heather was dreading the year anniversary of her father’s passing. And he knew just the thing to lift her spirits: a surprise trip to Disney.

And not just one park. Six of them, and all within 24 hours, including a 2,500-mile cross country flight.

The Tennessee couple began their adventure at Disney Springs in Orlando.

Early the next morning, the pair visited Epcot and the other Disney parks in Florida, then hopped a flight to see two California parks, concluding with Disneyland.  

Clark said he had been able to keep the trip a secret until the final month when his wife spotted an email in his inbox.

I guess it is a small world after all!
