I can pinpoint exactly when I fell in love with WDW and it became a part of my life forever. I had just gone through and ugly divorce, my ex made absolutely nothing easy and I swear fought everything just for the sake of fighting. After 2 years of crazyness, my new boyfriend (now my DH!!) and I took the kids 4 and 7 (DS's) to Disney for the first time. Neither of the kids had adjusted well going through all of that... and I really tried to keep it away from them. My oldest was on a get mom and dad back together kick and my youngest followed suit, this was to be a bonding trip for the my bf and the kids. we were only there for 4 days... but each day things felt better and better. On our last night there we gathered to watch the Fireworks at the MK for the first time. The lights dimmed, the music started, Jiminy spoke, and then Tinkerbelle came right out of the castle and flew!! Both of my boys were so excited!! My youngest hugging my BF and jumping while yelling "Tink, Tink, Tink" and my oldest grabbing BF and my hand because he was in shock, "she really can fly!" We all watched those fireworks for the first time as a cohesive family... and I cried tears of elation through the whole thing!! You have to know we have been extrodinarily happily married now for 10 years and the boys are doing fantastic!! We have gone to Disney every year since then with the kids and now we have a DD that is turning 3 this year... this summer will be her 3rd trip to WDW. All of us agree that we are happiest when we are together, no matter where that is, especially at Disney world. Last year, my daughter really saw Tink fly for the fist time (awake) and got as excited as her brothers did 10 years ago... The boys confessed to "choking" back the tears because they remembered. Me... I just bring a box of kleenex with me!! Cuz I can't even make it throught typing it now without crying. So anyhow, that bonding of our family is the reason I love WDW... how bout you????
