By the way....my absolute favorite part in your video is the expression on your son's face when he sees Mickey coming. You can see him change from a young man of 13 to a little boy of about 6 in seconds.

That is quite the moment for me to watch! Anyone who has a 13 year old boy knows that they can be hard pressed to show any emotion at all! So it warms this mama's heart to watch it over and over again. I haven't seen that little boy's face in quite a while! Only Disney could pull something like that off!!!
By the way...it literally took 6 seconds!!! We were told later that they timed it and that's how long it took for Main St. to fill up with CM's...
Gotta love that Disney magic!

Thank you for sharing your wonderful experience. I saw the video for the first time last week. On a day that I really wanted to be at WDW. I cried. Looking at Main Street empty and seeing the Castle with just your family in front of it. I had goosebumps.
I just found your trip report yesterday. Was thrilled to see you on the Dis. Thank you so much for sharing. And I will never forget the story of Cinderella making your DD feel so very special. Thank you again for sharing the Disney Magic with us.

True Disney fans and the cutest family! Someone that truly enjoyed every moment of this magical experience of a lifetime! Keep chatting on the disboard! There's so much magic here!

Tammy....................YOU ROCK!!!!

I am so truly happy for you!!! What a fabulous gift to have been chosen for. I am happier for you than I think I would have been for myself. (well, maybe just as happy )

Thank you so much for taking the time to share this.

A couple of comments.....Joey must have thought he had the job of his dreams, being able to escort you all around like that. He has mine!!

When you posted about seeing the carousel through the castle, it's so cool because in the video you can hear Ashley say something like "you can see the carousel"

What a wonderful memory for your family.

It was amazing!!!
Joey did happen to mention that he thought he had the best job in the world!
If you think about it, I would love for someone to pay me to ride rides all day and be able to spend my days at WDW! But, he really knew his stuff. We really appreciated all the history and tidbits of Disney facts that he shared with us! He really made the magic happen!!!

It is really fun to watch the clips over and over again...I notice something new every time!

Thanks to the DIS...I can get my Disney fix daily...or sometimes twice a day...OK, maybe three times!!!

Sounds like you found a new DISNEY friend.

Tammy, congrats... I am so happy for your and your family.
I cried like a baby watching you and your family walk down main street, it was like I was there with you... then when all the characters jumped out, how the tears ran down my face, all tears of joy... knowing it IS an experiance of a lifetime.

Treasure the memories... and so when is your next DISNEY adventure.

What a blessing you have given us

I just found your trip report and read the whole thing this afternoon. You have done a wonderful job of sharing your story so that I feel as blessed as you! Thank you so much for taking the time to spread the magic. I, too, say goodbye to the park and even wave out the window of the plane!

I hope that your life continues to be blessed with good fortune and happiness, for you and your whole family.

Thanks again.

Thank you so much for posting this report. I know it's been said over and over, but what a joy to have gone on this trip with you - even just in the retelling.

The joy on your son's face in the video when he hugs Mickey started my tears and they didn't let up through the whole report.

And I agree, couldn't have happened to a nicer family!
