What are you passionate about?

You are planning a Disney World trip. What is it about that trip that excites you the most? What are you getting giddy about?

My top three are the parade at Magic Kingdom, pin trading, and walking down Main Street soaking up the atmosphere.

Oh yeah, walking down Main Street for the first time once you arrive is wonderful. It's like coming home. Love that feeling!!

I just like the escape from the real world .... I know that sounds foolish because its just another tourist destination like any other in some ways. But Disney has a way of slightly losing yourself. You get picked up at the airport, taken to a resort in the park and for the duration of your stay you relax. No worry about meals or transportation -unless you are one who obsesses over the minucia of your vacation. We get the park hopper so we come and go as we please. Its about FUN and RELAXATION. Thats the appeal. When I think of a certain moment or place that I visualize, its in a pool back at the resort. The kids begging for a few more minutes to stay in the pool when its close to bedtime.

I just can't wait for that first walk through the tunnel to Main St. with that view of the castle. Be it at DL or WDW. It never gets old and always feels like the first time.

When I'm at Disneyland, I can't wait to see Fantasmic. I was a little diappointed in the one at WDW, so if we see it, wonderful, but if not, my heart doesn't break. But we never miss it at Disneyland.

Me too. I'm going to buy the disk this vacation that has all of those magical songs on it. I just love it.

I don't think I could have said this better myself. I don't think it sounds foolish at all. We don't even listen to any news while we are there. I think everyone needs a place to get away from reality a little bit and that is our place. I can't think of a better place for DH and I.

Spending time with my daughter, free of all the distractions of our normal day-to-day life. Going to Disney is truly magical for us because it's all about having fun together, no worries, laughing and enjoying it. It's the only time I escape from being a "single mom" and just have nonstop fun with my daughter, day after day. Once I step on that ME bus to the resort, the weight of the world lifts off my shoulders!

1. Watching my husband act like a kid again.
2. Seeing my kids get along (yep, Disney is magic)
3. Leaving work, stress, school, expectations, dissapointments, and all the other troubles of everyday life behind...

Going to my Laughing Place...

I love the music. I have it on a CD I bought on our last trip, but it's not quite the same as hearing it when I'm there. It tides me over pretty well, though.

I also love the smells. Sometimes I think I smell Disney here at home, and it's such a great feeling!
