    We have a tradition of taking a photo of all of us stood in front of the Mickey flower bed as you enter MK and I was wondering if anyone else had any similar or more unusual family traditions on holiday?

    We have a photo from every another year since 1997 and the children have changed so much.

    Hi

    I guess for my family it is always meeting at the icecream parlour on main street. Usually there is a least 8 of us that go at one time so when we go and do our own thing we always end up back at the icecream parlour!!!

    Always buy the refillable mugs as soon as we get there

    Always have 2 weeks off sleeping with DH....as we take it in turns every night to swap beds and share the bed with our 2 sons (GREAT!!) :cool1:

    Always check out the Disney presenter on the TV at the Disney hotel and compare them to the previous ones!!

    Always make sure we take a photo of our first Strawbwrry Daquri (with extra rum) which is always drank on the first night (along with several others!!) :cool1:

    I take a photo of DH and DDs (or whoever else makes up the rest of the group) on the path between the MK hub and Adventureland, with the castle in the background. We have 9 of these photos so far :)

    They used to be in a line of frames along a wall in our hall, but we'd just run of of space for any more... then we had an extension built last summer, so we've got plenty of room for lots more now! We didn't have the extension just for the photos, honestly! ;) On our just-the-two-of-us trip in two weeks time :hyper: , DH and I aren't planning to visit MK, so we won't be able to take a photo this time and will have to break with tradition.

    We also used to always have breakfast in Tony's in MK on our first morning, but that has sadly gone by the board now.

    Hilary we have the pictures around a mirror in the dining room and i am pleased to say there is enough room for at least two more :thumbsup2
    We also have some other traditions
    always go to walmart on our first full day as we are awake by 5.30 normally and there is not alot open at that time of day.
    White chocolate and macadamian nut cookies from the Croissant Moon in IOA.
    My son would like to start a new one as we have brought him an early Xmas present of a new/secondhand guitar from a pawnbrokers shop on the last 2 trips but that is one tradition i intend to stop. :rotfl:
