    Disneyland tears of joy

    What magical moments and Disneyland bring you to tears??

    For me, I would have to say seeing all the little kids freaking about because Mickey is near by, or the parade is about to start. And seriously, I don't just get choked up, I cry. Seriously. What about you?

    The closest I've ever come to crying was during Believe in Holiday Magic. I REALLY had to choke back the tears during most of the show.

    Holiday Believe made me cry during "I'll be home for Christmas" a few years ago, because it was just me with one of my daughters on that trip and it made me wish my entire family was there.

    And then last year when we were all there, I still cried during that portion of the fireworks show, so apparently it's the combo of Disneyland, fireworks, Christmas and that song that does me in.

    I always get a little choked-up at the end of the Christmas fireworks show when they turn up the lights and it snows on Main Street. I grew up in Southern California and haven't seen real snow falling very many times. To experience it there on that magical street is priceless. It's even better when the little kids realize it's not confetti and start to exclaim, "It's real! It's real!" These moments are what Disneyland is all about.

    Oh man that makes me ball too.. I love the snow. And to look at all the little kids on their daddy's shoulders looking up in awe.. Oh, I love Disneyland.

    Holiday Believe, everytime(even listening to the soundtrack shhhhh)and Fantasmic can still do it too. But mainly it's watching my boys. Like the first time my oldest rode Screamin' and was yelling "I did it I did it" while going through the loop or when my youngest was watching Fantasmic! last summer with his chin practically hitting the floor saying "mickey is magical" or last year when the "monowail dwiver" sang Happy Birthday to my youngest as we pulled into the DTD station last year or when my oldest gets soooo excited and gets teary himself watching believe.

    Just let them live somewhere where it snows for half of the year and hear the children and everyone else groan..."it's real...it's real...". "whose going to shovel the driveway now?!" :devil:

    Yes, Believe is really wonderful and I had a tear or two in my eye
    when I got to see my mom's reaction to Believe ~ with the "snow"
    a year and a half ago.

    As a kid, I often had a tear late at night, as we exited the gate of DL
    and WDW.(You know I never wanted to leave that magical place!)

    But the most recent tear occurred this past Sunday, when I visited
    that room on the 2nd floor of the Fire Station on Main Street.
    Welcome Home! Indeed!

    Thanks to all the people who made that magic happen!

    The look on my kids faces the first time we saw Believe: In Holiday Magic and the Snow.

    That and the fact they got to see the Electrical Parade. Of course it's not where it belongs, but at least they got to see it.

    The first time I saw the fireworks. I can't tell you exactly, but i wept. i think it was the sense of feeling like i was safe and small like a child. My childhood wasn't that great, so it must have triggered something warm about being a kid. I think we all feel some part of that. I'm dying to see the new show. It sounds so dumb but i get really moved at the end of that horrid snow white show. it is such b'way wannabe, but i dig that ending.
