Oh yes. That was years ago.
Not a complete secret to those who know me from elsewhere, but...
...It was 22 years between my first and second visits to WDW!
Spent a lot of time at Disneyland, though!
BT it brought a lump to my throat too, seeing the castle from the top of main street for the first time and seeing my kids faces, they were 14 & 11 at the time and they were in aweOriginally Posted by BouncyTigger, post: 2833
My secret is this... I was totally unimpressed by WDW when we first went... hated the fakeness of the theming... it just didn't do *it* for me. But when I got back I must have somehow been hit by the pixiedust because I couldn't wait to go back. And have been back every year since and LOVE it! How weird is that? Only going to Mexico this year because am having an op and need to just chill and relax... but have already got next years WDW trip booked and half paid for!
I dont know if its a very good secret but we have made so many friends by sitting at the comporary outer rim lounge and spending lazy afternoons there. People are always coming up to us saying hi and we're still in touch after many many years
We also always buy ponchos from walmart on day one because if it rains, thats when we go to the parks yes I know but everyone else will always head back to their hotels leaving the parks free for us and a bit of rain never hurt anyone
Cruella, I'm sorry to hear about your needing an op!
UKTim have you heard? The lounge at the Contemporary is closing. We've always enjoyed a relaxing drink or two there ourselves.
There is a new one opening. Connected somehow to the new restaurant, The Wave?
Time seems to change many things. :sigh;
That's such a shame I've whiled away many pleasant hours there, ok mostly just waiting to be served :gy: but I'll miss that placeOriginally Posted by Tink, post: 3274
I really liked the outer rim too. It was such a good place to just chill out and relax and watch the world go by.Originally Posted by UKTim, post: 3141
I have had quite a few cocktails in there after having a busy day at mk.
Well then I'm right there with you because I always tear up as soon as I see it too :p015:Originally Posted by TiggerD, post: 5760
