When you see the picture on the left, what do you think about? For me, I remember all of the best vacations I have ever had! My first visit was October 2, 1982 and my first park was The Magic Kingdom. The first time I rode the Monorail, I thought I was going to the moon. Walking toward the entrance off of the Monorail platform brought on emotions I didn’t know I was capable of experiencing. And, to this day, all the cares of the world melt into oblivion, if just for a few days.
Visiting EPCOT Center, as it was called in 1982, was completely overwhelming. It had the new feeling to the place, and some creative new ideas on display. I really enjoyed the old Communicore East and West. I especially enjoyed the little robot, I believe he went by Smart 1. Somewhat interactive, and he had a bit of a sense of humor. The World Showcase was also a highlight of that visit. But, the most used phrase on that trip was, “due to technical difficulties.” Nothing could spoil my vacation, not even the broken down new things to see.
The first time taking my kids to Walt Disney World, the feeling was the same, but different. To see the looks on their faces was indeed priceless. And, of the three kids, two have fallen prey to my Disney addiction. Now, we are preparing for our next journey and looking forward to what is ahead of us. I will be taking one of the many tours offered in The Magic Kingdom, and I can honestly say that this will be a birthday I will truly enjoy! Add to that the Candlelight Processional, a dinner at ‘Ohana, a lunch at Be Our Guest, and Osbourne Lights; this will be a week to remember.
So, what is the Magical attraction for you? I would love to hear your stories about first trips, first experiences, best memories. And, let’s all share our stories. Please, leave your comments on this blog page.
Have a magical and blessed day, my friends!
