    oooh, I thought of one that's postable.


    It was the off-season, very very late at night, and me and my friends Jim and Randy were walking through the Hub. Randy had never seen fireworks at Disneyland, and Jim and I were shocked. We were so sorry that it was the dead of winter and there would be no fireworks till spring. So we stood in front of the castle and, gesturing wildly, I tried to portray for Randy the dramatic opening of Fantasy in the Sky.

    I told him that the show started with Tinkerbell flying down from the Matterhorn and how, just like the classic television opening of the Wonderful World of Disney, when she waved her wand above Sleeping Beauty Castle, fireworks would fill the air.

    And just as I waved my invisible wand to illustrate this point, fireworks actually filled the air! Disney had chosen that precise SECOND to begin a test of the next season's fireworks show, months away. The test went on for only a few minutes, but we were flabbergasted for the rest of the night. I have never been able to get over the remarkable timing of that moment. There was something quite magical about it.



    I do believe in fairies.

    I do, I do.

    I don't have any Disneyland memories yet... emphasis on yet! I'm sure the first time I walk into the park when I visit in July will be a highly memorable experience! And a crowded one, LoL!

    Back in Oct 2003, I went to DL. And while this isn't the happiest moment... it was truly a special moment that I will always remember.

    On the shuttle to Disneyland, I was stitting near a 4 person family (mom & dad., 6yr old girl and 1 1/2-2 yr old boy). The mom behind us was asking me about what kids could do at California Adventure for the smaller ones.

    Of course, I am ALL over this as I have a smaller person too AND I am a Disney freak who knows tons of information. The shuttle ride is a good 10-15 minutes and we have a great conversation about where we're from, what to do, funny things about our kids. And then at the end of the converation I ask if it is the kids' first trip to DL. She says "It's Caleb's Make a Wish Trip". Then I saw the Make-A-Wish button on the 2 year old's shirt.

    By that time, it was time to disembark and we all went our separate ways. When I knew I was no longer visible to the family, I totally broke down and cried. He was such a little guy. They only try to send terminally ill children on the trips.

    I saw the little girl growing up without her little brother and the inevitable sadness around the trip. But on the other hand, I saw the simplicity in a child's wish. The time they were spending as a family to make Caleb's time on earth memorable. The excitement and happiness in that family was inspring.

    That became a goal for me as well... to make mine and B's time here on earth special and memorable. My life is wide open to me. My opportunites are boundless!!

    I wish I had the opportunity to tell that family that their lives touched me. That they inspire me to be the best mom I can be and to make our lives special in every little thing B and I do together.
    She walks in beauty, like the night
    Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
    And all that's best of dark and bright
    Meet in her aspect and her eyes.....

    had just walked into Disneyland...me and my group saw that the firetruck was parked right there...the driver was waiting for passengers...we all decided, "hey might as well get on it...nobody's there...we've never been on it..." So as we decided to hop in...the truck driver tells us, "Hey guys! Mickey and Minnie are going to ride down Main St. with you..."

    That my friend...was awesome...

    Riding with Mr. Cheese and the Mrs.

    Life cant get any better than that...lol

    It was cool...i had a cup of AMPM soda...so i gestured to Mickey to see if he wanted some...so he pretended to drink and rub his belly like he was satisfied...

    Good times...Good times...
    Went to a party the other night
    All the ladies were treating me right
    Moving my feet to the disco beat
    How in the world could I keep my seat
    All of a sudden I began to change
    I was on the dance floor acting strange
    Flapping my arms I began to cluck
    Look at me..I'm the disco duck

    Pluto

    My favorite moment was back in 2002 when my family of 5 were going out of toontown, and were escorted out of Toontown by Pluto. Pluto ignored calls for autographs and such and just skipped along with the kids. There is nothing like seeing your littleones faces as they hold hands with Pluto. That being said, I am not a big Pluto fan, but that made one of the neatest memories!

    My special moment was in 1996 when I proposed to my wife and she said yes. We go back every year now to the spot, Snow White Grotto, and celebrate.

    Being from the Midwest, my parents took us to the Grand Canyon for a vacation in 1967. After we'd seen and done it, we hit the road again in our station wagon. We kept seeing signs that advertised motels near Disneyland. I was really young but my brother, three years older, kept teasing me "We're going to Disneyland". My brother often annoyed me, so I kept saying we weren't. Afterall, why would our parents keep a cool idea like that from us? I don't remember entering Los Angeles, but I do remember exiting on Harbor Blvd... as I looked out the window, the Monorail zoomed right to left around the berm! My brother was right! We were going to Disneyland!

    The pic on the left is from that trip. I was in heaven all day. Thanks Mom and Dad!

    I loved reading the romantic moments (Disguy, Tomx805, KoH)!!! So much that I wanted to share with you guys the magical moment I haven't even had yet...

    This summer I'll be going to DL with my boyfriend for the first time. I used to live in Anaheim, so I'm a total DL nut with more info than most average ppl can stand to hear about (I'm sure the rest of you know that feeling). Anyway this trip will be awesome because of the 50th, plus my college graduation/my birthday. The best part is that my boyfriend hasn't been to DL or WDW EVER IN HIS LIFE!!! What a deprived child, huh?? Anyway, I'm completely looking forward to seeing the park in all of its celebration glory, and since we're going for 3 days, I can't wait to introduce my man to every conrner of the park. It will be so refreshing to see the park through his eyes, and (like Disguy mentioned) I'll finally be able to walk through my favorite place holding hands with my favorite person.

    Thus, there's no doubt in my mind that this summer's trip will be my most magical of all time.

    I am compleatly with you on that one. I am going in August with My husband on our honeymoon, and our three year wedding anniversary. He has NEVER been, not even to CA. I want him to be able to see everything - but we are going August 23-27 and I have this terrible fear that for some reason they won't be doing the fireworks or fantasmic...
    ... I am a worry wart..
