Favorite disney memory!

I do and have always loved all things Disney but my favorite is my 13 yr old was was such a big 3yr old!
We had already visited Mk hearing how each ride was not scary ! And we get to Ak get on the dinasour ride and he's on the floor ! When he got older he wanted to know why he wasn't in the pic. I told because he was being brave and protecting the souvineers down below!

One of my favorite memories is seeing 40+ y.o. DD#1 burst into tears when her favorite princess paid special attention to her upon returning from a scheduled meet-and-greet

We were sitting in the little garden near the patisserie and the wine shop in Epcot when Aurora and her minders returned from a scheduled appearance in front of Chefs de Paris. As Aurora entered the garden area, DD caught sight of her, gasped, and said almost reverently "Aurora!" Aurora heard her and came over to her and said "Oh, hello. Have you come to see me? How nice of you to stop by" or words to that effect. DD promptly burst into tears and was rendered speechless (for the first time in her life!).

I tease DD from time to time about this, but she reminds me (correctly) that I'd have the same reaction if I met Cal Ripken, Jr. Nah, I'd probably faint!

My kids getting to meet Jake from the Neverland Pirates at California Adventures. DS #1 ran over and gave him a big hug. DS #2 hung back a little, jumped up and down and said, "Hi!!!!!!!! JAKE!" and then gave him a big hug. It was such a special moment.

There are so many but I would the top 3 are:

1) Watching my sister on her first trip at age 6 on the Winnie the Pooh ride, her eyes completely lit up (my mum was also in tears)

2) My brothers pure excitement when he realized in our planning (he at 6 was my mini Disney planner) that he could ride almost all the rides at Disney. He is pretty tiny for his age but had just hit 46 inches so was ecstatic.

3) My sisters experience at BBB at 12. My sister has a rare disorder called PCD with her lungs (similar in some aspects to Cystic Fibrosis) and our FGMIT was such an incredible woman. She had connections to CF and unbelievable knew what PCD was, her and my sister had conversations and by the end of the makeover we were all welling up.

On your shoulders and you could see it on her face? Did you pass a mirror or are you a contortionist?

I have so many, but will try to limit it....

Dd (now 18) was just 10 weeks at Disneyland. We met Snow White on Main Street and she picked up dd and held her. The picture is precious.

Another involving dd.....at 6 we went on a tour at MK. Can't remember what it was called, but Captain Hook had stolen something. We ended up in a private garden area with a personal meet and greet with some characters. Everyone pushed to the front. I told my three kids to wait nicely and that everyone would have a turn. Dd was anxious, because Prince Charming was there. Well, everyone who pushed ahead left the garden and our kids got their autographs and photos. But the tour wasn't over.....the characters took us to a ride in Fantasyland but virtually everyone was gone. Dd skipped to the ride, holding Prince Charmings hand and rode the ride with him. She was entranced.

And my all time favorite......we took oldest ds at 15 months. His favorite ride......the tram in the parking lot!!!

~Oh...the Carousel of Progress! "It's a great big beautiful tomorrow" As a little girl it was my favorite. We use to clap to the song as it moved to the next scene. I loved looking at the dog and the girl growing up I found some great videos on YOUTUBE!

~And the people mover. My brothers and I did this ride over and over and my parents never minded because they got to sit.

~"America the Beautiful" the old version of "Soarin Over America" that they have now at Calif. Adventure. I would just turn around and around in absolute awwww. My parents loved it because it was air conditioned.

~Now, my DD14's favorite is "Soarin Over America". She loves the scents that comes out, especially over the lemon groves She loves that I sometimes have to close my eyes like a baby (I'm always surprised when the jets fly over). But I ride it over and over for her.

There are so many!

I would have to say though my favorite moment was with gdd 5 at the time. We were having dinner at 1900 Park Fare. She could not wait to meet Cinderella. When Cinderella came to the table, my gdd was speechless. When she finally did find words, she said "Can I see your glass slippers". Cinderella pushed a foot out from under her dress to show her. The picture is my all time favorite. The look on gdd's face was PRICELESS. Loved that trip with her!

This year we are taking the next two grands that turn 5. One is a boy and one is a girl. I was talking with dh last night about sometimes breaking apart to do things as I wasn't sure if my grandson would be interested in some girly adventures. Dh said no, he didn't want to miss anything. Like the time with Cinderella and other gdd. I never knew it was his favorite moment too!

It was early December, my birthday actually, and I was on a solo trip. I was having dinner at Cali Grill at the Contemporary and lucked out with a window table since it was kind of early. I was facing the castle in MK and as the sun set all the beautiful Christmas lights came on. I'd never seen the castle like that before and it brought tears to my eyes. What a great birthday surprise!
