I have been sorting photos this morning, and I realized just how many great memories I have of my numerous vacations to Disney World. I thought it would be fun to share some of those memories with you, and show the photos that prompt me to remember good times once spent at Disney World.
I encourage all of you to dig through your photos and share your memories as well.
This first memory is of my very first trip to Disney World, which just happened to include the day that I turned 50. My grandson was just 4. My 50th birthday was on 9-4-97, the castle was a cake, and we had a great morning in Magic Kingdom. My special day ended with an impromptu dinner at Ohana. You couldn't do that, most likely today without a priority seating. I was 50, and Magic Kingdom was celebrating their 25th.
As I look at these photos, I am reminded of how my husband loved our stay at the Polynesian, and our vacation as a whole, but I can't get him to go back. My grandson had his first of many haircuts at the Harmony Barber Shop. That Barber is still there today, I believe. Our Crystal Palace lunch was my very first, of many character meals to come. I also especially enjoyed my very first ride on Dumbo. It has become a tradition of mine to always ride Dumbo first on an early morning in Magic Kingdom.
Memories........it's why we keep going back.
