I use to feel that way about it. I don't any more. Plenty of other things still feel right, but, for me, not that. I'm a bit jealous.

For me it would have to be the escape to this fantasy land... where everything seems magical!!

We love the food...we love the Beach Club...we love seeing the Mickey hand waving at us at the MCO... we love the excitement sitting on the bus...going through the gates of WDW.. weeeehoooo, we're HOME!!

Gosh... I'd go tomorrow if I could!!!

WDW totally re-prioritizes life for me. At WDW my biggest problems are how many attractions can I experience before the next ADR, and which tchotzkes would I most like to add to my collection. When these are the things that matter most, life is good.

I get passionate about MAGIC TIME!!!! That first moment when we walk into MK and get through the tunnel out into the square...I tear up or straight cry every time. It's the moment where everything comes together for me....

I also get passionate about our ADRs!! LOVE FOOD!! Love to eat, and eating at the World is a lot of fun!

I get passionate about ToT!!!! DH and I love this one!!! It makes me scream and get scared and excited all at once.

My top three are pin trading, the YC (where we will be staying), and riding Spaceship Earth (My absolute favorite!!!!!!)

This was tough.

Seeing the excitement of my kids meeting the characters. Also, the food, I love planning the meals, especially character meals.

this is gonna be corny but the thing i love most about our disneyworld trips is being able to take the kids on a vacation that they love

I grew up in a family that always had a nice home and enough food in a really good neighborhood, but there were extras for only a couple of years, most years there werent any extras, and only two real family vacations. I never ordered or asked to order books from school because i knew my parents had $ troubles.... so anyway

I get choked up just thinking about being able to take the kids to the world. We usually arrive in orlando and dw about mid day and have lunch at the hotel and hit epcot for a nice dinner. the next morning is the magic moment for me... getting to the Magic Kingdom at rope drop or earlier with a cyrstal palace breakfast, I always pause looking up main street and say a quick thank you to god for being able to give this gift to my kids

Where to start.....
-Walking through the gates, onto Main Street and getting my first glimpse of the buildings and that majestic castle. It makes me feel like I am 5 years old and reliving all the magic that I felt when I was a little girl.
-Stopping in front of the statue of Walt holding Mickey's hand (I have a replica statue at home) while having tears in my eyes...every time!
-seeing Palm trees throughout adventureland (From MA...we don't see them)
-Riding on Pirates of the Caribbean
-watching the monorail travel through Epcot
-Giving Mickey a hug
-getting shivers during the fireworks
-sharing that excitment with my boys has been amazing
-the magical feeling that the Magic Kingdom is there for me to love, enjoy and escape from reality...there is no greater feeling
