    Just a line that will spark a memory or a feeling


    such as

    - When the lights dim for Wishes and Jiminy starts to talk ( I especially love this as all the chatter and tantrums seem to stop as everyone turns as one towards the castle)

    - Walking into your Hotel lobby after a 10 hour flight knowing the whole trip is ahead of you

    - The smell of Pirates of the Carribean

    - Counting down before the launch of the Rock n Roller Coaster

    :D you get the idea

    Driving onto property for the first time

    The cast members - actually they may be the single best thing about Disney full stop!

    Talking with other families on the buses

    The peace and quiet and anticipation of the first morning when you are up and about at ridiculous o clock in the morning

    When you drive up to a parking lot booth to pay and a cheery CM sticks their head out and gives you a great big "good morning" :D

    Driving under that purple arch for the first time.

    Crossing the lake by ferry and watching the castle drift into view

    Walking to the All Star Movies food court at 7am and watching mist rise off the swimming pool. :sigh;

    The warmth you feel as you walk through the sliding doors at Orlando International Airport to cross the road to get you hire car.

    "Please stand clear of the doors"

    The smell of the candy shop on Main Street

    The feel of hot concrete under you as you sit and wait for the parade/fireworks

    On the first morning, stepping out of your cool resort room when you've forgotten how warm and humid it's going to be. Bliss. :D

    That time when you are heading to check in and all the sad people who just checked out are watching you with teary eyes. (Then you try to forget you will be them soon)

    That moment in the morning where everything is quiet, the pool is empty, and the day holds all the magic you can hope for.

    After the first day in the parks when your feet hurt, you stink, and you couldn't be more excited!

    Hearing little kids yell "MOMMY- I SEE MICKEY MOUSE!!" and then glancing back to see Mommy's face.

    When you get back to your room at night and find cute little towel friends that Mousekeeping left.

    Watching the people with you light up when they see/do their fav thing in the park.

    That feeling you get inside when you see Mickey. Even if you try and act cool.
