I agree with so much that has already been said! My favorite though is my children's expressions and reactions to everything. I will also add:
-Staring Rolls cupcakes
-the smell of hot dogs from Casey's
-seeing the Castle lit up.
-Naming the countries as we ride past in IASW.
-Minnie's Bakery cookies.
-the first rush of wind at Soarin'
-My son with Piglet. My son lived in an orphanage in China until he came to us at 2.5 years old. He had a stuffed Piglet there. It's the one thing we knew he has loved since he was a baby. He loves to hug Piglet at the Crystal Palace.

I'm not sure if many people notice these, but since we drive seeing the purple direction signs means that we are finally in disney! For that week we are no longer part of the real world, just enjoying the magic :D
That's my dad's thing. Once he sees them he knows he's there

Then a bunch of people started commenting on it
I wondered if people really lived there and got to watch them every night

-Getting off the plane and seeing the "Welcome To Orlando" sign
-Leaving the airport and feeling the heat hit me
-Seeing the "Welcome To Walt Disney World" sign
-Driving under the gate for Magic Kingdom
-Taking the land tram and the spiel "Keep your hands, arms feet and legs inside the vehicle at all times and supervise your children" then hearing it in Spanish.

Looking at my DH once the plane takes off and seeing him smile-it's pure happiness on his face

The sigh of relief I have once we are checked in and I know I have so much to look forward to.

Hugging Goofy at Chef Mickey's on our first night-and the parmesean mashed potatoes

Walking though the train station and seeing Main Street
The smell of Pirates of Carribean
Hiding my head in my DH chest in the stretching room at HM
Watching the parade holding DH's hand

The smell of the resort lobby when you first walk in to check in (doesn't even matter which resort.)
Seeing the giant masses of balloons bobbing around on main street.
Reciting the old script of the TTA while on the people mover (NOW APPROACHING MICKEY'S STAR TRADERS")
