We ate with several other people at one large table in the Biergarten. It was so much fun. The people at our table were very friendly. Do you think it was the Beck's?

And More World Showcase

Japan

The Lagoon at England

Morocco

England, Japan, Morocco and Eeyore. Oh, My!

Canada

All aboard!


As you can see by my pictures - Not very busy. Especially early in the morning. World Showcase, to me, was beautiful and awe inspiring. I've never been out of the US. Don't know if I will ever truly go oversees. At least I can get a glimpse of the world at Disney's EP.

The Polynesion Review

I absolutely loved this dinner show!! DH and I will be doing 'Spirit of Aloha' this Sept. I hope it is still worth the money. I think it only cost us $20 or $25 at the time. But I got FREE DINING for Sept.
So who cares about the money. You should have seen the look on my DDad's face when I told him about the free dining offer. He asked how I managed it. I told him it was thanks to my DISbuds.
Here's DD at the Poly.

The band played while we ate. Then, when were about done, the show started.

DD with his drink.

The Flame Dancer.

Disney-MGM Studios

Now known as Disney Hollywood Studios today, this was the star attraction in '89. I'm almost sure that we got in on a discounted price because some of the rides/events weren't up and running yet.

50's Prime Time Cafe

This is my 'Gotta do it again' pick. I liked walking into my grandma's kitchen. Man did this place bring back memories. Our waiter was hilarious. At first DDad and I were caught off guard. We settled in pretty quickly. I just remember my waiter cousin telling me if I didn't eat my veggies, I was going to have to do the dishes!
You have to go in here with the right frame of mind and play along.

The only thing I remember from my meal is the shake - Peanut Butter Cheesecake.

Odds and Ends

Christmas in July?

I don't think this place is there anymore. We had lunch and drinks here with some friends that came to visit one day.

Remember when they gave you these for free. I can't believe I still had it and all the contents. How cool!

Wrap Up!

This is a picture of my DDad a few years ago.

I was blessed to have such a good father.
I will miss my DDad. He was a great travel companion. He loved Disney. He did a great Donald Duck impression. He watched 'Wonderful World of Disney' every Sunday night with us.
He would have been the first phone call I made when we got to WDW this fall. I will miss calling him to tell him how great it is and showing him all the pics when we get back.

It's only fitting that our last conversation was about, WDW. As the matter of fact I was telling him about ScottNY's TR. I told him that I hoped the kids would one day appreciate what he had done for them. I said, 'Dad I never realized when I was younger, that not every kid gets to go to Disney. Thank you for taking us. My fondest memories are of our vacations together.'

5 days later, he was gone.

I see him as that cowboy in Disney heaven. 7 yrs old with no worries. I mean if Walt put a little piece of heaven on earth, can you imagine what he's done there!

Thanks for joining me on this journey. I hope you enjoyed the pictures.
Please, hug your kids and tell them you love them. Tell your mom and dad the things you loved while growing up and let them know you love them. We just don't know what's around the corner. God bless!

I'm so sorry about your father's passing. It sounds like he was a wonderful man. Thank you for sharing your memories and photos - I'm around the same age and really enjoyed the styles and seeing the parks from back then.

I hope these memories will comfort you as you grieve. And I love the thought of him in "Disney Heaven". What a wonderful thought!

My hair looked exactly like yours back in 1989. And I loved the picture where you were wearing 2 pairs of socks. How funny! It is cool to think of your dad at Disney in heaven.

Thank you, Bunny. Hey if the pictures weren't all there when you looked earlier, they're back now. OOPSIE. I will definitely be a pro at this when it comes to my TR!

This is probably one of the best TR's I've ever read on the DIS. Your pictures are amazing and the tribute to your father is so sweet. I'm sorry for your loss but I'm glad he went painlessly. This thread is really special

I wish that I had vacation memories with my dad, he didn't like to travel much. He would stay home and send me and mom on trips. He did like to fish and my favorite memory is of a fishing trip his company took off the coast that he took me on. It was awesome!
