Awww Dawn - your baby picture is so cute!

Thanks for sharing the pix of "One Man's Dream". Count us someone else who's never been into that exhibit. Your pictures have now given me the incentive to check it out!

Not sure if this is Kali or which park this ride is from but was always one of my faves at Opryland!!

I don't know what Opryland is, but that is a mini version of Grizzly River Run from Disney's California Adventure.

Thanks for all the great One Man's Dream pictures - one of my favorite attractions at DHS!

Cute baby pic Dawn! Adorable!

Did a frog really pee on Erica's hand?

Hey girls! Just now catching up. We had a blast at Disney on Ice and are in the process of posting. Brooklynn completely spazzed out when Mickey and Minnie drove out in their car. We will be there 3 weeks from today! We also saw the Grizzly River Rampage rocks today! I'm with you guys who needs another stupid mall bring back Opryland!

i can't believe you've never done it! but that's the beauty of disney world - there's enough stuff there that you can always do something new every trip!

you would love it. and from what i know of you, you'll tear up in the movie like i always do! especially at the end. it always chokes me up to know that disney never saw the opening of disney world. but i'm sure he was in heaven smiling down on us!

opryland was a themepark in nashville where erica and i both grew up. we both have LOTS of memories of that place! they had an attraction very similar to the picture called the grizzly river rampage. VERY similar names, huh?

I havn't seen One Man's Dream either. We had a list of must see and it didn't make the cut, the last few times. I will go next year and probably cry twice. Once when I see the castle and during that movie. My DS14 will make fun of me for sure. He of course is too cool to cry. I never knew such wonderful things were inside. Thanks for showing me something new!

Your picture is SO cute!

My DH was reading a Stephen King book late in my pregnancy and was finishing it up right around the time DD was born. There was a little girl in the book with the nickname "Pie" so DH called DD that when she was first born. When she was 2 months old we celebrated her first halloween and we dressed her up as a pumpkin so her nickname morphed from Pie > Pumpkin Pie > Punkin Pie > Punkin. And that's what has stuck for the past 11 years. We call her Punkin more than by her own name (Emily). On our EPCOT tombstone, uh, I mean Leave a Legacy tile we have my first name and DH's first name and he insisted we put Punkin instead of Emily. That'll be funny when she goes to EPCOT with her grandkids and they'll be like "Who's Punkin??".

Loving everyword of your TR and laughing all through it.

Loved the baby picture and story behind the name.

I had been to One Man's Dream a long time ago when we took the kids and wasn't really planning on doing it this time but was amazed at how it has changed I will definetly see it this time. Thanks for sharing the pic of it.

Keep the pictures and report coming

I officially added it to my "Want-to-Do-Next-Time" list earlier today!

You are right, I know I would tear up! I even tear up during the movie montage at the end of the Great Movie Ride!

Chelsea and I always comment on how sad it was that Disney didn't see WDW open.

Oh, I wanted to tell you, Dawn, that we tried Ted's Montana Grill last weekend -- we loved it -- even the kids although Chelsea was a little freaked out by the bison head on the wall! We liked the decor so much, we decided we should add the Wilderness Lodge to our list of resorts! Thanks for the recommendation!

You should check out this website I found last weekend (this was after I went to the mall and got nostalgic after seeing the rocks).

http://www.thrillhunter.com/Opryland.html

There are some really cool pictures on here of all of the rides and some video clips too. Oh, and you'll love the 80's hairdo's

I work in the labs in the Vanderbilt Clinic as a medical transcriptionist

And Vandy won!!!

Maybe all of us locals/Opryland mourners could have a dis meet sometime
I'm with you guys though. I would be more than happy to drive out to Cool Springs to the Disney Store if they'd kept Opryland!
