    My favorite memory from my last trip was watching my two little ones eat their very first Mickey Bar together.  It’s one of my favorite photos and my friends even gave me a Disney Gift Card with that picture on it as a gift!  I love that they’re old enough to make memories together now.

    One of my FAVOURITE Disney Parks vacation memories was when my 23 month old daughter ‘danced’ in front of Cinderella Castle for the very first time. It was such a magical moment watching her run & dance & play with other tiny Disney guests and the look of freedom & joy in her eyes. She’s still dancing to this day! <3

    Can’t pick just ONE favourite … that was my DAUGHTER’S first trip… On my SON’S first trip … he was 8 months old. It was September and the most disgustingly humid September in the history of Florida I’m sure ;) We needed a break from the heat so my sister & I bought frozen lemonades and took my sweaty little son in his stroller inside Cosmic Rays to watch Sonny Eclipse. I fed a little spoonful of frozen lemonade to Buddy and my sister & I HOWLED with laughter as we watched his eyes squint shut and he shuddered from his head to his toes from the sour taste. Ten seconds later he said “mo…. mo…. mo….” (more) and my sis gave him some – same thing – squint, shudder, “mo….mo….” From that very day on, that little monkey has LOVED anything and everything sour. He’s now 10 years old and the MINUTE we enter Magic Kingdom – first words out of his mouth now, and every trip in between since his return at 3 years have been “Mom – can I please get a frozen lemonade?” <3 

    • http://memorymakermom.com/ Kaylene Jablecki

      Kirsten, I LOVE this! My kids love that frozen lemonade too! :) How fun!

  • Sarah

    I took my son for the first time when he was 3 1/2 and to see his face when he first saw magic kingdom was priceless…..now that hes almost 8 he still remembers specific events from our trip,( like running to our hotel room in the rain), can’t wait to go back again so he can share that first time experience with his baby brother!!!!!

    Last year we were at the Magic Kingdom for the celebratory parade for the Green Bay Packer Super Bowl MVP winner Aaron Rodgers.  We are HUGE Rodgers fans.  With our Aaron Rodgers jerseys on, we waited for the parade.  We got to be a part of the Disney Video blog and after the parade, we waited for Aaron Rodgers and our son got to shake Aaron Rodgers’ hand.  We even have pictures!  Our son was so excited!  It really was an amazing, magical moment for our family.  Our most favorite place on Earth with our most favorite football player on Earth.  FANTASTIC!

    My best memory at WDW was in 2007.  My hubby and I were married at the Wedding Pavilion.  That was his first visit to WDW.  I had always dreamed of getting married there.  I remember as a little girl riding on the monorail and seeing the Wedding Pavilion and dreaming about getting married there.  My dream came true.  I truely felt like Cinderella marrying my Prince Charming.  We ahd a small ceremony with out family.  It was so beautiful and romantic.  My then 7 year old son walked me down the aisle.  Only 15 days before our wedding, my hubby’s 2 nephews ages 8 and 6 were killed in a house fire.  To honor them, I made a button with their picture on it.  My son wore the button during the ceremony.  They were my son’s best friends from daycare.  I had aa all pink bouquet with two roses dyed blue to honor them. 
    Our families stayed at WDW the entire week, so we had a family honeymoon at Disney World.  Family is very important to me and my husband.  The day after our wedding, my hubby and I decided to go to Epcot.  We were chosen as family of the day.  Me, my hubby and my son were so excited.  We got our pics made with the fab five all together with us.  We received so many special things like fastpasses and got to ride in a Test Track car that drove us from the water fountain to TestTrack. 
    Our wedding and honeymoon was one of the best memories of WDW.

    • http://www.facebook.com/lynn.g.brooks Lynn Green Brooks

      I also have three other great memories.  I loved seeing each of my 3 kids’ faces as they saw Cinderella’s Castle for the first time.  Each one of them had their first trip to WDW when they were 1 year old.  They LOVE WDW.

    • http://memorymakermom.com/ Kaylene Jablecki

      What an incredible story, Lynn! Thank you for sharing it with me. I had tears in my eyes as I read about your husband’s nephews :( I love that you honored their memory on your wedding day. <3

      How special! Thanks for sharing. Disney definitely has a way of making you feel like a kid again.

    My favorite family Disney park moment started when we had lunch at Crystal Palace. It was my family’ first trip as a family … to celebrate a 25th Anniversary. Our three incredible grown children are all autistic and have trouble opening up to others. They were shy with Piglet and Eeyore. They were so excited to meet Pooh. By the time Tigger came around the twins were excited and even juggled oranges from the buffet for him. After that, they became more independent to the point they spent most of their time on their own. The safety they felt while at WDW helped jumpstart their independence … now all they need are transition exercises.

    • http://memorymakermom.com/ Kaylene Jablecki

      This is so wonderful, Rochelle! There must be something special about Crystal Palace, as it is where my youngest daugther first opened up with characters as well. She gave Pooh a huge bear hug (and she was painfully shy at the time). She’s still quite shy, but at Disney World, she feels free to be herself. Thanks for sharing!

    Only ONE favorite memory with my kids!?!?! WOW! I have so many wonderful memories of each individual child at Disney, but what I love most about Disney is all of the fun, laughter and joy we share as a family on each of our vacations to Disney World. After an 8 day vacation at Disney we are all sad to leave on that last day because we have so much fun together as a family and the boys are always asking on the way home when they get to go back to “Mickey’s House”! ( ejlambert20@yahoo.com )

    One of my absolute favorite memories: My daughter wanted to meet Marie from Aristocats. We missed her the first time we went to France, and then didn’t come back to Epcot til our last day. We literally had a half hour til we had to leave, and we ran through the World Showcase to try and meet her with just a few minutes left that she was supposed to be there. The whole time, my daughter was clinging to her little stuffed Marie toy. We made it in the nick of time, and she was the last one to visit with Marie before she went in. The look of awe on her face when she met her was priceless!

    One of my favorite memories happened after we returned from our last family reunion trip with my parents.  They have both passed away this last year so it was our last trip together.   When I was looking through the hundreds of photos I came across one of my youngest, now adult daughter, walking hand in hand with her grandfather.  It was so sweet and I do not remember seeing them walking hand it hand when it happened.  I guess I was too busy pushing my mom in her wheelchair.  I am so thankful that my dear husband lagged behind and took the photo.  I give me happy tears every time I see it!  ~ Kim

      What a priceless, precious memory Kim! Thank you for sharing this with me.

    One of my favorite memories of the Disney Parks includes my mom.  We had been planning a huge family vacation for two years and were just months away from our summer of 10′ vacation when my mom tripped over a a mat at a local 7/11 and  tore her shoulder muscles. She would need surgery and they urged her to do it as soon as possible, we all understood and tried our best to smile and say we could postpone the trip. but she would not have any of it. She said she would manage, it meant
    that much to the rest of the family to cancel now.  Besides she wanted
    her Disney trip. And so we went. A bum shoulder and all.

    We knew we would have to take things a lot slower however. We knew we
    wouldn’t exactly be hitting the parks every hour with her. Which is fine
    because my mom isn’t exactly the ride type of person. So on that Monday
    my mom pulled out the activity guide at Animal Kingdom Lodge and found
    there were ceramics. She asked if we had even known about the activities
    at the resorts. Sure we knew about them but we had never participated
    in them. But we were willing to give it a try since we like to do
    different things with each trip.

    The Animal Kingdom Lodge offered both ceramics and jewelery making every
    other day. Monday was ceramics. Located in the Simba Club House, at
    Jumbo house we were greeted by two coordinators that supervised the
    ceramics. They offer anything from Mickey ornaments, to a Buzz Lightyear
    bank, to a Mickey Chip and Dip bowl. I must admit I was quite impressed
    not only with the selection of pieces but the prices. Up in Northern
    Virginia my husband and I have done ceramics but have stopped in recent
    due to the prices. But at Disney, all we had to pay for was the piece.

    On this day my mom choose to do a mug.

    The
    coordinators-Michele and Hillaree- I have to say were beyond impressive.
    Friendly and accommodating they made sure my mom was taken care of,
    even helping her get the colors and all so my mom wouldn’t have to
    contentiously get up and down from her already painful state.

    After the coordinators say the results of this mug, they asked her to create one for their showcase.

    I
    know painting and doing ceramics isn’t most peoples ideal Disney
    vacation, but as I watched my mom sitting there painting, it occurred to
    me. Maybe she wasn’t doing the rides and spending hours in the park.
    But she was having a wonderful time. She was enjoying herself, and she
    was in her element. And while this may not be everyone’s ideal Disney
    vacation, this was her Disney vacation.

    I know I have a son, and I look forward to sharing so much wonderful memories with him but looking back through all of the memories, this story of my mom ranks right up there as one of my favorites because it shows just how much Disney has to offer.

    When we left the resort, she cried and said that was her favorite vacation of her life.

    You know, come to think of it, it was probably one of mine as well.

    • http://memorymakermom.com/ Kaylene Jablecki

      This is AWESOME, Aleisha! I absolutely love how Disney has countless things to do, and something for everyone. What a special Mom you have! I love her tough spirit and that she found a way to have a magical time…bum shoulder and all.  Thanks for sharing!

    One of our most favorite memories at Disneyland doesn’t really involve my family BUT we got to witness a young man proposing to his girlfriend in front of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle. Seeing the shock and amazement on her face when she realized what he was doing was so sweet. Everyone around who witnessed it had tears in their eyes. A truly magical experience for us all. :)

    hmmmm… too many wonderful memories to choose from! I will tell you about when my oldest son (now 13) was 1 and was napping in his stroller at EPCOT and when he woke up, he sat up and looked around and said “Where Pooh?”  :)   We still all say “where Pooh?” often around our house.

    And of the time we went with 29 people (various family members and friends) and seeing my Grandpa hug Mickey and shake his hand. (makes me cry since he passed away 3 months ago) Or when all gathered together to watch the fireworks and I look over and see tears streaming down my Grandma’s face, matching mine. :)

    Or the last time we went and took our daughter for the first time…. finally a princess to bring to WDW! And she was scared to death of all the characters, but would hug and kiss the statues of them.

    Great, now I’m homesick for WDW!

    • http://memorymakermom.com/ Kaylene Jablecki

      Thanks so much for sharing, Michelle! I’m so happy you finally have your Princess to bring on your Disney trips. How funny that she hugged the statues. ;) I love the memories of your grandparents and the one about Pooh too. I hope you get back to your “Happy Place” soon. <3

    How do I pick 1??? Every trip has its special moments and each of our kids have gotten to experience different things on various trips but I would have to say having our youngest son Zack get his haircut for the very 1st time at the Harmony Barber Shop in Magic Kingdom was a special experience not just for him but for us too.

    Wow, it’s hard to pick a memory – there are so many favorites!  But one of the first that comes to mind is my middle child, Amelia – she had the biggest smile I have ever seen the whole time we were at Disneyland.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen her happier, and she wants to work there when she grows up.  :)   So when I think of Disneyland I think of her smile!

    My favorite memory from my last trip to Walt Disney World in January was running the Half Marathon with my 14 year old son.  We trained together for months, and I would ask him all about his classes to slow h.im down as we ran our long runs!  I learned so much about him and his classes.  We supported each other during the race and had such a great time.  He took my hand and held it up high as we crossed the finish line- all smiles and a few tears shed by his Mom..

    There are so many memories, but one of my favorite is when my oldest daughter was 3 and my youngest was just 3 months.   It was their first trips and we had dinner at 1900 Park Fare at the Grand Floridian with Cinderella.    It was a surprise and she was enthralled.   My oldest was dressed as her idol  and just beamed as she met her at the table, but  the most memorable part of the evening was the impromtu waltz with Prince Charming.   They danced and my husband and I cried tears of joy to see her live that special moment she had watched SOOOO many times in the movie.   They are now 11 and 8 but that is one we will never forget.   
    I would love to hear from you..

    One of my favorite Disney Parks memories was last year when our son was “in charge” of our daughter for a ride on Space Mountain when mom and dad were exhausted. They had so much fun and their eyes were bright with excitement so much so that they just HAD to do it 3 more times! My hubby and I enjoyed watching Wishes from Tomorrowland that night and it was so magical!

    One of my favorite memories is with my 6 year old daughter on The Great Movie Ride. We got to the part where the gangster tries to steal the gem and becomes a skeleton. She looked at me in all seriousness and said, “Mommy, it’s such a shame. Every single time we ride this thing, someone dies.”

    One of my most recent, and fondest memories of Disneyland, is last March we visited the Park as a family on my grown daughter’s birthday. I was able to appreciate the magic thru my grand-children’s eyes. We ended the evening watching the World of Color show in the California Adventure Park.

    My favorite memory of my kids at Walt Disney World is going on our first ride together at the Animal Kingdom.  We rode Dinosaur and boy were they surprised!  They had no idea how magical Disney World was going to be for them!  They have been hooked ever since.

    One of my fondness memories is when I with with my 3 yr old niece, Riley, to Epcot. We went to meet Mickey Mouse. She saw Mickey and when he knelt down to say “hi” she squeezed his nose. She turned around and said, “it’s squishy”. Mary Poppins was also there, so we went to see her too. She asked Riley if she had seen Burt. She knoded her head yes. Mary Poppins said, “really? where?”. Just to happens that
    King Louey was the next character over. Riley pointed to King Louey. Mary Poppins said, Oh my, he sure is a lot hairier than the last time I saw him”. Riley was shaking her head yes and I was trying so hard not to laugh. Riley is 9 now and says she remembers it. I am not sue if she really does or just remembers the pictures and us telling her about. I do know it is a moment that always brings a huge smile to my face when ever I think about it.

    Poppins said, “oh my, he sure is a lot hairier than the last time I saw him”…. Riley was shaking her head yes and I was just trying so hard not to laugh.

    One of my favorite Disney Parks memories happened on a bus to the Magic Kingdom for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. My youngest daughter was 4 at the time and was dressed in her amazing homemade Ariel costume. Only one other family was on the bus with us and we were all conversing about where we were headed and what we were about to do. I’ll never forget when my baby girl proudly clarified that she wasn’t the real Ariel…she was just wearing a costume for the Halloween party. Still makes me smile.

    And we took my daughter on a surprise trip to WDW for her 7th birthday. We got off the plane and handed her the Magical Express ‘tickets’. She looked so confused, until we told her that Cinderella would be very disappointed if she didn’t come have breakfast with her for her birthday. Then she started to cry… because she thought she was going to visit Grandma and Grandpa and she was upset! (Thankfully, they were waiting at the resort for us!)

    My favorite memory is when my niece took her first steps at the Magic Kingdom during her first trip to Disney World. We went down for a 5-day trip the day after her first birthday and it was magical! She’s 7 now, but that’s still my favorite memory.

    We recently spent 9 days  at WDW on a family vacation.  Between the sun, the parks, and no otherwordly distractions, this was SUCH a fun vacation.  We were there for Marathon weekend, and all 6 of us ran at least one race ~ would love to do it again!

    One of my favorite memories was Christmas Eve 2005. Park was dead and my guy and I just went out for the day to have our “own” little Christmas before the hectic following day of juggling two household visits. It was such a magic day and really made the whole season for us.

    Memories:  Working at Disney at Castle Couture, formerly known as Tinkerbell’s Toy shop; flying on Dumbo with my 7 year old this past Christmas; watching the beautiful fireworks at every park during this past Christmas Holiday.  Such a fun necklace!

    My favorite memory is when my sister and I took my daughter to Disney World for the first time.  She picked out a Mickey Mouse pewter necklace and told everyone to be careful when they looked at it because it was “very, very glass”  She loved that necklace! I would love the birthstone necklace – now I have 3 children.

    I am blessed with a million wonderful memories from our visits to the Disney parks.  One of my favorites was from my sons first trip to Disneyland – it was my 28th birthday and he was 18 months old.    We sat front row waiting for the Pixar parade to begin at California Adventure – as soon as the music started my little one jumped to his feet and started to clap and dance along to the music.    His eyes grew wide and his was filled with excitement to see his favorite Nemo and Dory – both of which came right up to him and gave him a little kiss!    I had to hold him back from wanting to run out get closer with he saw Mater and McQueen drive past.     I will never forget his face and laughter that day – his favorite characters from movies and TV became “real” in his eyes.    It was also the day that started his Disney obsession…just like his Mama!   

    • http://memorymakermom.com/ Kaylene Jablecki

      Awesome! Sounds like he has a healthy obsession ;) Love this, thanks for sharing!

  • Chrissy Hudson

    I have been blessed with so many Disney memories, but the moment that really stands out is from a few years ago my whole family went to WDW, 14 of us!  My parents, my husband and kids, and my brothers and their families.  Seeing my Dad (who is a “Disney freak”), who unfortunately wasnt well, showing everything Disney to all his Grandsons was a truly special time.  We will remember that trip for a lifetime, and hope to recreate it someday with  our Grandkids.

    Our honeymoon was at Disney World…………….. just the beginning of our joy together.  Funny that even then we talked about “one day” bringing our own children to Disney. My very first trip to Disney World was with my parents in the 70′s.  There was only the Magic Kingdom and the only hotel was the Contemporary.  I remember it was sooooo neat to stay at a hotel that had a monorail go through it.  I wonder what my folks would think if they saw it now.  My poor Mom was pooped after two days in the Magic Kingdom!!

     Our fondest memory was a show where a magician had Adam (who was about 4) on the stage as his “assistant” – of course he made conversation with Adam and asked what his Daddy did “My Daddy drives an ambulance!”   He made a couple of jokes about that and handwashing and then asked if his Mommy worked or stayed home. Adam said she worked.   He asked  where does your Mommy work?? – he proudly said….. “In a cemetery” – - the poor an barely knew what to say to Adam…. “so your Daddy drives and ambulance and your Mommy works in a cemetery”….. when he finally composed himself he said to Adam “uh, what does your Mommy do at the cemetery?”  By this time Adam was just a tad indignant with the questions…. he answered him loud and clear “she buries dead people!”   The place was in hysterics….. poor guy had nothing to say after that answer!!   Out of the mouths of babes!!!

    So many memories but my favorite is always the same one… Our first trip with my two boys – then 3 and 18 months… My oldest only wanted to see daisy because ge loved ducks. Being a Disney fanatic myself I knew daisy was not always easy to find but assured hikes would see Mickey. Upon arrival at MK the first day we were early to see the show before gates open. We finally went through and under the railroad station and daisy was walking towards us. It was almost as if she new… A little Disney magic. I started screaming and ran up to her. We got a hug, a picture and a stuffed animal at the emporium. Honestly, we could gave left then. Now at age 8, daisy is still a favorite although it’s a little hush hush with friends!

    • http://memorymakermom.com/ Kaylene Jablecki

      That’s so cool! I love when magical memories like that happen. We’ll never tell L that we know Daisy is his favorite ;)

    Opps sorry forgot my story. For my 40 th we went down to celebrate it was during Star Wars weekends. We went to the Hoppla party, our first visit, my DH was in heaven. Well the sand people were walking though the crowd, one was stalking my dd &she didn’t know it until she turned around thinking it was my DH & boy the look on her face was priceless. The cm was excellent. Then he told his friends so they kept following he during the show it was great, she loved it & we had a great time.

    My husband is a Disney travel agent and podcaster so we visit Walt Disney World Resort every few weeks. My favorite trip had to be our first as a couple in September 2009. He went out of the way to make it a truly Magical visit and it really sealed the deal- we were married that December.
