I remember my first trip to WDW in 2003...30 years old and I had waited my whole life to get there. When we drove through the main gate I bawled! My then 10-year-old son just laughed and shook his head. LOL

My husband put in the Disney trip planning DVD last night and I got so emotional. I honestly don't know why, but Disney gets me all worked up. I think it's because it's just such a happy place and I have so many memories there (nearly all of them fantastic).

I cry at all the same places as well and times Just brings back memories of my childhood, and I am so happy to see my child light up, the same as my parents were. And now here i am as an adult taking my family, full circle moment.

I lost both my Dad and my sister, and when I was younger my mom had someone take pictures of us by the castle in the same spot. So now I also take pictures of my family in that same spot. Water works also go at that spot...

I know one day my son will hopefully carry on that tradition...How many places are there like Walt Disney that will I think be around for forever!

I for one want to give a big shout out to Walt Disney, thank you for creating such a happy place!

This past vacation was the first time that my fiance and I saw the fireworks at MK together, and when they were over he turns to me and says I just cried watching that I was so happy. And I said I did too! Haha I'm definitely a mess when I see MK!

As soon as I saw the castle on my first trip last year I burst into tears around 50 other au pairs...luckily everyone was really nice to me and when we went to meet Mickey and Minnie they let me go first because I was jumping around as I was so excited haha.
I also cry thinking about the fact I get to see my little sisters face light up this year when she see's the fireworks for the first time

DW cries at the end of every DVC stay. On the way out of the parking lot she looks around at whatever resort we were at and starts to well up. We have had over 100+ DVC stays.

Am I the only man willing to admit being emotional about WDW? Wishes does it to me every time!

I get emotional whenever I walk through the gates for the first time and watching wishes. Even watching the Disney specials on the travel channel gets me a little choked up!!

I'm right there with all of you. I get so emotional!
My first trip to the world was 5 years ago with DS who was 12 at the time.
I've been to WDW 6 times since 2009...trip number 7 coming up soon!

I still get just as emotional. Especially during the MK opening ceremony, and the Celebrate Parade, walking down Main Street at MK opening with the Good morning music playing and the Cast members waving and saying good morning.

I carry tissues with me at all times in the World. I'm tearing up just thinking about my next visit in March!

So glad, that I'm not the only Adult that gets like this. I just love WDW, it's truly my happy place.

Disney reminds me how much of a fantasy my real life is!

I tear up often when I'm listening to or watching Disney things at home, but when I get to Disney sometimes I'm too exhausted to be able to cry from joy. Having said that, the last three times I've seen Wishes in person I have cried every time. Not only are the fireworks beautiful and the park so magical, but it made me remember my dreams as a kid, and I realized that all my wishes actually have come true! Crying at Wishes on my last trip with my fiance and mom, out of pure gratitude and love, is a moment I'll never forget!

I'm absolutely loving reading everyones stories!! So great to hear that Disney has such a profound effect on so many. Right now, thinking of my upcoming trip is helping me through the January blues lol. I have to say, I don't actually cry at anything Disney, but I'm very emotional on the inside...like a combo of love/excitement/adrenaline is rushing through me. I kind of do the "bouncy kid dance". Passing under the Magic Kingdom sign outside the park, seeing the monorail pull into station, setting eyes on It's a Small World...yep, all pure Heaven ;-)
