Thanks for the great story. I agree that you are a DIS celebrity. I even called my husband to tell him I found your thread. I only wish that I had found it sooner. Thanks for lots of chill bumps and tears.

By the way....my absolute favorite part in your video is the expression on your son's face when he sees Mickey coming. You can see him change from a young man of 13 to a little boy of about 6 in seconds. :yay: :yay:

That is quite the moment for me to watch! Anyone who has a 13 year old boy knows that they can be hard pressed to show any emotion at all! So it warms this mama's heart to watch it over and over again. I haven't seen that little boy's face in quite a while! Only Disney could pull something like that off!!! :goodvibes
By the way...it literally took 6 seconds!!! We were told later that they timed it and that's how long it took for Main St. to fill up with CM's...
Gotta love that Disney magic! :wizard:

Thank you for sharing your wonderful experience. I saw the video for the first time last week. On a day that I really wanted to be at WDW. I cried. Looking at Main Street empty and seeing the Castle with just your family in front of it. I had goosebumps.
I just found your trip report yesterday. Was thrilled to see you on the Dis. Thank you so much for sharing. And I will never forget the story of Cinderella making your DD feel so very special. Thank you again for sharing the Disney Magic with us.

Well, I just read your amazing report. The most magical thing ever!!! Honestly, I haven't seen any of the coverage but I heard about it and I am so happy they chose a family like yours! True Disney fans and the cutest family! Someone that truly enjoyed every moment of this magical experience of a lifetime! Keep chatting on the disboard! There's so much magic here!

Tammy....................YOU ROCK!!!!

I am so truly happy for you!!! What a fabulous gift to have been chosen for. I am happier for you than I think I would have been for myself. (well, maybe just as happy :goodvibes )

Thank you so much for taking the time to share this.

A couple of comments.....Joey must have thought he had the job of his dreams, being able to escort you all around like that. He has mine!!

When you posted about seeing the carousel through the castle, it's so cool because in the video you can hear Ashley say something like "you can see the carousel"

What a wonderful memory for your family.

    It was amazing!!! :goodvibes
    Joey did happen to mention that he thought he had the best job in the world! :thumbsup2
    If you think about it, I would love for someone to pay me to ride rides all day and be able to spend my days at WDW! But, he really knew his stuff. We really appreciated all the history and tidbits of Disney facts that he shared with us! He really made the magic happen!!! :wizard:

    It is really fun to watch the clips over and over again...I notice something new every time! :cloud9:

    Thanks to the DIS...I can get my Disney fix daily...or sometimes twice a day...OK, maybe three times!!! :rotfl:

    Sounds like you found a new DISNEY friend.

    Tammy, congrats... I am so happy for your and your family.
    I cried like a baby watching you and your family walk down main street, it was like I was there with you... then when all the characters jumped out, how the tears ran down my face, all tears of joy... knowing it IS an experiance of a lifetime.

    Treasure the memories... and so when is your next DISNEY adventure.

    I just found your trip report and read the whole thing this afternoon. You have done a wonderful job of sharing your story so that I feel as blessed as you! Thank you so much for taking the time to spread the magic. I, too, say goodbye to the park and even wave out the window of the plane!

    I hope that your life continues to be blessed with good fortune and happiness, for you and your whole family.

    Thanks again.

    Thank you so much for posting this report. I know it's been said over and over, but what a joy to have gone on this trip with you - even just in the retelling.

    The joy on your son's face in the video when he hugs Mickey started my tears and they didn't let up through the whole report.

    And I agree, couldn't have happened to a nicer family!

    Thank you...everyone...You all have been so much fun to share with! :goodvibes
    I am so grateful this Thanksgiving! The trip was awesome and we have some great memories, but I am so thankful for the blessings in my life. I have a great family and we are all healthy, well-fed and warm in our home tonight. There are so many who aren't and don't have anyone that they can count on.
    This year has flown by and just like when we were on our magical trip...I just want things to slow down! I want to savor every moment with my kids...the time is passing so quickly! :hourglass
    It's all about being grateful for the little things...the everyday things...the moments in life that just make you sit back and say, "Wow!"

    Happy Thanksgiving to all my new DIS friends! I am so glad to have met you! :wave:

    Great story! I love Deliliah's voice, when the radio station she is on plays Christmas carols (the whole month of December LOL) I love listening to her in the evening.

    And I have to say, this picture is great and has become the one picture I see everywhere when people talk about the Year of a Million Dreams...

    Deliliah was wonderful and so kind...we had a lot of fun talking to her! It was really neat-the other night I was listening to her on the way home and I was able to hear her give away the trip to Disney World that she announced when we were talking to her in October. The lady who won it was so excited...she had been through some rough times and it was so great to hear the excitement in her voice when she was told that she won! :goodvibes

    Also...thanks for sharing this photo! It is one that I haven't seen! :thumbsup2
