Magical Attraction Memories



"Let the Memories Begin" has created a time for me to reminisce all about my many magical memories at Walt Disney World. I have to admit that while I have created more memories than I can ever remember there are just some that cannot slip out of my mind. When you get a chance head over to WDW Fan Zone to read an article written by me titled, "The Many Stages of My Disney Life." In that article I talk a little about how my Disney life has morphed. Today I want to share the best memories I have of Disney world...I know that these are my top three Disney memories and that they will stay that way for a lifetime. 

I know that Tuesday is attraction Tuesday at Disney Guru....so I am sharing my top 3 magical memories at Disney attractions. :0)

Enjoy!

The Judge's Tent at Mickey's Toontown Fair

1. In 1999 I took my daughter Lexis on her first trip to Walt Disney World. We of course decided to take her to meet Mickey for the first time. In the unbelievably HOT month of August we waited in the longest line at the Judge’s Tent to meet Mickey. The line was so long that we were actually outside in the sun...yikes!! Yes, Lexis at 3 got a little crabby but when we got to the front of the line and met Mickey, it made the wait worthwhile. When they opened up the door to meet Mickey, my quiet child magically transformed into an excited child. She ran in the room and immediately hugged Mickey...her face was priceless. I will never forget the magical look on her face. 



Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger  Spin

2.  We took Logan on his first trip to Disney World in 2008. When you prep a 3 year old for their first trip to Disney there is really no right way to do it. They simply have no idea what they are about to experience.  In 2008 and still today, Logan was really into Buzz. I repeatedly reminded Logan that he would be able to go on the Buzz Lightyear ride. The magic happened in the Buzz queue, as you are walking through the queue just before you enter the ride loading dock, you pass a digital Buzz that talks. Logan actually thought that Buzz was talking to him. Till today...Buzz is Logan's favorite ride...it is family must do.

Tomorrowland Indy Speedway

3. Sometimes the little things at Disney are what your children will remember the most. On our most recent trip to Disney World Lucas was 2 almost 3 years old. He just loved it all!! Well that was until he went on Tomorrowland Indy Speedway. We routinely went on this classic attraction just to say that we got it in like we do the tea cups and a few other attractions at Disney. Little did we know that Lucas would take a huge liking to this ride to the point that he actually still talks about it 5 months later. We have him on video riding the ride and he laughs hysterically every time that he watches it. Just waiting in the queue makes Lucas happy. 

Waiting in line...he loves it!!

Disney is full of attractions and special memories. What is your favorite memory and what attraction did it include? 

See ya real soon!!

  2. The speedway is a must do for us. My son rides it at least 10 times a trip. I actually rode it for the first time last trip with my daughter, Hayley!
