The smile on my daughters face when a castmember stops what they are doing and gets down on her level just to say hi!

Jump rope on Main Street
Eating in a restaurant and not feeling like a bother
Watching Peter Pan tap people on the shoulder as he skips by
The joy on people's faces when they see something new
All the magic of Disney
Making new friends
Vacationing when you least expect it...

She honestly is amazing!

Holy moly, thank you everyone for pitching in! I wasn't expecting this kind of response and have loved reading all of the posts.

Mine include:
Riding Pirates and hearing "Dead Men Tell No Tales".
Seeing the Welcome sign for the first time.
Seeing the palm trees when landing at MCO and you know that you've arrived.
Sitting by the tank at The Coral Reef.
Getting the perfect spot for the fireworks and you don't even realize it until the show has started.
Riding the train, just because.

well, to be perfectly honest here.........

there have been many, many discussions here on the "monorail smell".

so, and I did it last month, i try and discretly sniff and see if I can clue in on this "monorail smell". so far, all i have discovered is diaper full needs to be changed smell, nasty never cleaned shoes smell, and my personal gross out- the either why wear deodorant lets be natural in 100 heat OR my deodorant does not work after 5 minutes smell.

I have decided to go back to how many mickey bars can I eat in one sitting. more fun that way.
I see your true colors shining thru.

The feeling right after you pass through the turnstiles at the park. "I'm HERE!"

Wow, what a fantastic site! I made my own "top 100" list that I sent out to my friends as a countdown prior to the trip (1 day at a time), and a lot of what I had on my countdown is on the site... I am especially impressed at the presence of EPCOT after it rains - I love Disney post-rainstorm!
