In 2009 we went to DW for DS 1st birthday, it was a pouring rain when we got to epcot & we just made it into Mexico. There was a 1hr wait to eat but hey it was poring out why not wait DS fell asleep in his strolller. DH & I sat on a bench when the mariachi preformers were walking by one stopped to say Hi & ask where we were from, then he continued to talk with DH. He then said bye & when they came back out to preform he asked us to follow them, so we did. After they played the first song He anounced to everyone that it was Landon's 1st birthday & pushed his stroller in front of him and they began to sing to him. I recorded it & of course cried a little bit. It is one of the most magical moments we have had & it played a big roll in my DH just falling in love with DW.
taking 40 GS to disney and seeing their faces when they saw the castle for the first time.
taking my son there on his 5th birthday and him sitting on the ground 'chatting' with Pinochio
the trip where a friend who couldn't be there, popped out and surprised me.
the trip where a lady at the Hampton Inn in Caldera, GA saw my Michey necklace and preceeded to tell us how she was 67 and had loved Mickey since she was a baby--she chatted away for awhile. this particular trip was filled with magic moments--so many people who did little things that just made the trip 'shine'--too many to try to list here.
Ethel and the other CM at POFQ who greet us warmly and remember we were there last year
if you don't talk to your cat about cat nip, who will?
In 2010 we did a land and sea stay. while on the Disney Wonder I ended up talking a lot with the bartender in the 18 and over only bar/lounge near the front of the ship. There was hardly anyone ever in there. Since it was my first cruise he told me about the ship some and what to do when we stopped at the Bahama's and CC. If me or the wife wanted a drink anytime I would walk up there to get it from him instead of getting one from the people walking around with them. Rather he got the tip,and always tipped him a little extra.
Well our last night on the ship we went to our room after dinner and there was a soft cooler with pop and water and every light up character they put on the kids drinks. with a card from him in it
wife or daughter still use it a a lunch box
really the only time I drink is while on vacation,
For me it our first trip with our sons, and we were eating at Sci-Fi. The chef promised our middle son a "desert just like his big brother's ice cream sundae" to which he reminded the chef that ice cream wasn't good for his tummy (he's allergic to Cow's Milk Protien). The chef just smiled and instructed him to eat as much of his dinner as he could. When our waiter brought out big brother's ice cream sundae, the chef followed behind with what looked like an ice cream sundae. Patrick's eyes lit up as the chef explained that it was made from rice milk, and he'd created a dairy free chocolate sauce just for him. I got teary eyed as Patrick took a tenative bite, then a HUGE bite of his special desert. The chef wiped a few tears away, and everyone clapped as Patrick took a second HUGE spoonful. He was so grateful to finally have a desert that looked just like his big brother's because he always wants to do everything his big brother does.

In '07, DD and I took a father/daughter trip to WDW. We had a great time at the parks, but the sweetest memory i have, is sitting on a brickwall overlooking the water at DTD and eating ice cream with her. I always look back at that and it warms my heart.
Back in '06 or '07, I was leaving the park (DLR) to have lunch with my hubby...the rest of the stay would be taken up with his convention things, so I was saying good-bye to the park. As I hung up my phone, I saw Stitch--one of my all-time favorite characters--walking down the street in my direction. I suppose I must've waved at him, but he just came right up to me and gave me a big hug! Of course there's no picture of this, but it's a Magical Moment I'll always remember, and a fantastic way to end a wonderful visit.
Ginger, Mickey, Walt..............................In memory of the world's sweetest kitty
Ah Magical Experiences. Of those I had many. Mine was on a bus at WDW. I wear a hat with character signatures on it. A lady with a boy about 8 enters the bus. She sees my hat and says "my son thinks Mickey is a person in a suit." Well I knew where that was going so I went on to explain how there is only one Mickey and that he does live there and that as an official member (in good standing) of the old Mickey Mouse Club I would know if he was a fake. I assured the boy that it was indeed Mickey and that he was indeed real. The boy look at his mom and said, "wow, I guess it really was Mickey."

Second Greatest Moment...See the little pic to the left; where the Avatar goes? Those are my two little babies. Charlie and Elizabeth, my daughters. After one year of not talking to me, Charlie finally came around and took a trip to Disney with Rae and the rest of us. When we were packing the truck to leave, Charlie met Elizabeth for the 1st time. They kept their distance for the 1st 2 days, but on at AK, they were walking down the park holding hands and even posed for a pic together in front of the Tree of Life. It was beautiful to see them sharing a drink and some snacks throughout the day; and even now, it is fun to see them together. Charlie talks to her of her husband(S) from 1 Direction (yes, the Brit Boy Band ) and the little monkey will actually sit there and listen to her.
