Talking First Visit to Disney World!

I just had my first visit to Disney World, and it was the most magical time of my life! I went with my boyfriend and his wonderful family. His mom (who i consider to be another mother to me) was sweet enough to invite me. Some of you may know her as TinkerbellinLouisian.

Some of the MANY things we did were:

-Have a magical meal with the princesses (Cinderella, Snow White, Ariel, Aurora, and my and TinkerbellinLouisian's personal favorite, Belle) in Cinderella's Castle.

-Go zooming around on segways for the Segway Tour at Epcot. This was the perfect way to have tons of fun while learning.

-Fly through space on the ever so famous Space Mountain, which just happened to be my first Disney roller coaster.

-Have a delicious lunch at Hollywood Brown Derby with a very inspiring and interesting Imagineer, Marcey Floyd.

AND SO MUCH MORE! I felt like a princess the entire time I was there.

Glad you had a great time! I was 24 the first, and only, time I've been to Disney World and it was amazing! I'm hoping my next visit will be just as magical

The very things that hold you down are going to lift you up
Have faith in your dreams, and someday, your rainbow will come smiling through
Here you leave today and enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow, and fantasy

to the DIS boards!

That's great!!
I was 29 when I made my first trip to WDW - you've already gotten to do some things I haven't done yet - and I've been 10 times!!!
I love how special we all feel when we go there. Nothing like feeling like a princess, right?
Hope you'll go back again and have more fun!

Welcome to The Dis Steamboat Minnie ! You do NOT know how VERY excited I am for you to be a "Dis-er" !

THANK YOU so much to all the PP's (Previous Posters) for being SO welcoming !

Special HUGS to each and every one of you !

My trip was so MUCH MORE magical to have a First Timer with us...

I can't wait to bring her back (yes - AND go back myself)... there is just so much to "See and Do" that our motto became "We'll just HAVE to come back" whenever we realized we couldn't see and do everything....

Our FIRST visit to WDW was to MK (Magic Kingdom) of course...

The kids made OP (Original Poster) keep her eyes shut at first... so here is her VERY FIRST time seeing the CASTLE!
I think it is one of my very favorite pictures !

Little did she know that I had ADR's (Advanced Dining Reservations) at CRT (Cinderella's Royal Table) for 7:10pm ! So we FP'd Space Mountain and headed there first....

1970 - (I was 5...it was just a movie being shown back then...still being built)...1974 - WDW - ?...1976 - DL - On the way to moving from CA to FL...1977 - WDW Lake Buena Vista...1981 - WDW High School Dance Competition...1982 - H.S. Dance Competition.....1983 - H.S. Dance Competition...1985 - Offsite...1991 - Offsite (HJ)..1993 - AS Movies...1994 - Offsite ...1995 - AS Music .....1997 - Offsite...1998 - Offsite...2000 - Offsite...2002 - Polynesian (Got Married!)...2004 - Beach Club...2006 - Beach Club...2008 - Beach Club...2010 May 9-14 BCV Graduation Celebration with DS18...2012 Surprising Family on details May Visit to WDW
