    And the winner of the DisneyLand Poem Contest is....

    Ladydragon55! Here is her poem:

    This I Know

    My first trip to Disneyland
    Was when I was young,
    My friends had all spoke of it
    I knew it was fun.


    We drove through this gate
    With the words overhead,
    DISNEYLAND in huge letters
    Was all that it said


    We rode on a train
    And had lunch in a skull.
    We saw all the characters
    I knew them quite well.


    As we drove out of the parking lot
    I looked back through tears.
    I knew Iíd be back someday
    Even if it took years.


    Many years later
    I walked through those gates.
    Holding my hand was my daughter
    She barely could wait.


    We walked through a castle
    Spun around in tea cups.
    We rode ever ride we could think of
    It never felt like enough.


    As we walked out to the parking lot
    Our daughter asleep in Dadís arms,
    I knew Iíd be back someday
    To share more of itís charms.


    Now it seems like a lifetime
    Since I first walked through.
    Now I have taken my grandkids
    Five, four, and two.


    We rode those same teacups
    But the skull is no more.
    We saw scary pirates
    And heard ghosts behind doors.


    Since the first time I went there
    And I saw DISNEYLAND.
    Nothing has really changed
    It was all in his plan.


    The park is still growing
    But the love is still there.
    The characters are still smiling
    We know Walt still cares.


    So years down the road
    With Great Grandkids in tow.
    It will still be the Happiest Place on Earth
    This I know.

    The next contest will begin Friday, and end on Monday. If you want to enter, write those poems!

    I have been away from the computer and I missed this. I am very very honored! Even if it got only one vote. I am adding this to this years trip to Disneyland scrap book.
    You made my day
