    What situation/smell/sound etc makes you say to yourself "I am here" when you are in Florida?
    You know what I mean....you take a deep breath and give a contented sigh....you are actually here after all the planning and saving.

    For me, it is right at the beginning of the holiday when we get our first blast of Florida air and sunshine at the airport....I am so content to have arrived!
    Also listening to the voice on the monorail "stand clear of the doors"

    For me, it used to be the WDW arch that you drive beneath when entering the property. I knew then that I was "home" and it was going to be all out fun for days!

    Now, it's hearing "Welcome Home" at the DVC resorts.

    In Ireland it was the soft mist on my face at 7:00 AM that first morning as we exited the airport. The air was incredibly fresh, and the mist was gently in the air. I knew I was home then, you see.:ashamed008:

    When I didn't live in Florida, I have to say it was just arriving at the airport. :D

    Yep DW always says the same, she knows she's "there" when she goes under the arch

    I can't wait for that - I know I will cry The same as I did when they announced us when we got on the Disney Wonder last year

    Yep for me it's the heat and the cleanliness at MCO and the Welcome to Walt Disney World signs. I also love that first ride on the Monorail - I want that mans voice on my Sat Nav
