I am so excited to be returning to Disneyland after a 30 year absence! Let me tell you why.... I was born in 1963, in Los Angeles... UCLA Medical Center to be exact. Lived in a lttle apartment with my folks in West LA until two years later when moved to a little community called Sunset Mesa in Malibu... just barely Malibu mind you, It bordered the Pacific Palisades. 1976 found us moving to Pasadena and 1979 to New York City. SO... it has been 30 years since I have been to Disneyland. I probably went 20 to 30 times as a child before we moved to the east coast. As I know you folks can appreciate, the memories I hold of my times there with friends and family are priceless, and sometimes I get emotional as I remember those great visits of years gone by.
Fast forward to 2007. I am 43, have a wonderful wife, and a GREAT 3 1/2 yr. old daughter that we adopted newborn ( I can't tell you how blessed I am). My wife and I have been in Seattle for 19 years. Our little family is going to Disneyland in early May! To be able to bring my daughter to a place that was so special to me starting at her same age, is magical... and personally for me to be returning is so exciting. I don't know who will have more fun!
Anyway, I think all of you guys are great, I have been lurking for a while. I know you folks would appreciate my little story. I am coming home.
