Little Moments.


Disney is full of big extravagant, colorful grand happenings.
I know we can all probably list off a hand full of rides,
parades or events at WDW we're all fond of but
lets "go off the beaten path" and tell our favorite -
little moments.

Things you just found special -
that maybe caught you off guard,
lifted your spirit - made you smile-
or that touched your heart in some way.

I guess I should go first-

Well let me start with -
I did not have such a great childhood growing up - I know no one has a perfect one -
but lets just say mine had a high quantum of drama and turmoil not of my own doing.
No pity-party required - thank you.

So I'm fascinated with seeing parents -
in tender moments with their children.
I have to catch myself from not staring at a pool or on a walk way.
Don't wanna be that creepy stranger.
I've noticed these moments do tend to happen
more out of the parks.

Any way that's one of mine.

I don't drink, I try to convert people to nudism!
while it was a beautiful experience it was a slurge

I have to say that just being able to BE at Disney thrills me down to my soul. My little girls self awakens with giddiness every time.

Top that with being able to be there with friends....well, I had to pinch myself several times.

But I guess my all time favorite time was watching the fireworks one evening and sitting by a little girl of about 3; she cried out in such glee "BRAVO" every time there was a new burst of color. Her delight matched my own.

I love seeing happy children, awed children, wonderment.

I love that there is a place on this earth that makes me as happy and carefree as a child. Something I didn't actually get to experience in my youth.

moment 2 for me-
Having drinks at WDW -
and having a friend I did not expect to see show up to surprise me -
I was so touched and taken back by this.

My little moment is when my 9 year old son who is not very affectionate, gave me an impromptu hug and thanked me for taking them to WDW.

My other son, 6, and I cried together when we left WDW on the last day because we were both sad that we didn't want to leave. I promied him we would come back soon!

For us it has to be the "welcome Home" we received from the fantastic greeter at OKW when we arrived on our disneymoon.

It really made us feel we had come somewhere special!

I had kind of lost track of a good friend. A couple of years ago, we reconnected and had dinner. At that time we started making plans to go to WDW together.

The first park we went to was DHS. When we got to TSM, the wait was posted as being 120 minutes. We stood in line talking and catching up on 25 years. I have no idea if the line took 120 minutes or 5 hours; it was such a wonderful time.

Counting monorails with my 4 year old niece and nephew while waiting for the boat to the Grand Floridian.

I was aware that we shouldn't have been able to count quite so many monorails while waiting, but, they weren't and they were quite well entertained. They came up with many different names for each colour just so that they could claim there were more monorails traveling the tracks. (They managed to come up with more currently on the track than actually existed.)

Walking through fantasyland a couple of years ago, I tripped over my own feet and did a lovely tumble. I stayed seated on the ground for a minute, to access the damage to my old self. A little girl came out of nowhere, and told me not to cry and offered me her balloon. I was fine, just being slow to get up; but her offer of her balloon almost made me cry.

Having Mike at the Main St. barber shop laugh with a young relative who said, "Well that wasn't as bad as going to the doctor" at the end of his hair cut.

New Years 1999-2000, the whole family was in Epcot we watched the new millennium year ring in. It was the best illuminations show, just after midnight we all headed for test track, there was no line and we all got to be the first people to ride test track in 2000. The high speed loop was even more thrilling at midnight on new years day.
