    My most memorable moment happened on September 14. I was in the Magic Kingdom continuing my birthday celebration. I was in Adventureland and got in line to meet my favorite Princess, Ariel. When it was my turn to meet Ariel She instantly spotted my birthday button. We talked for abit about my Disney pins collection and her secret collection in her grotto. Then she asked if I collected Dinglehoppers. I said yes I had about 20 at home. She turned around and presented me with a plastic fork and said “now you have 21 Happy Birthday!” I bought a special display case for the Dinglehopper and have a special pillow it’s sitting on. To others it’s a simple plastic fork. To me it’s the greatest birthday present I ever got because it came from my favorite Princess ever.

    As a semi-frequent visitor to WDW, my most memorable moment was walking in to Disneyland for the first time ever back in August. It was strange how everything seemed new and different, yet familiar at the same time. I agree in principal when you say Carsland should not be duplicated at WDW because I don’t want the parks to be carbon copies of each other. However, because I thought that they did such a great job on it and because I desperately think DHS needs something to replace the stunt show I sort of would like to see an east coast version.

    By far for me it was my visit during the F&W Festival. We arrived just in time to catch the very first Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party of the year, then ran in my first half marathon (W&D half), spent the last day of F&W eating my way through EPCOT and it was all topped off with a special visit with Lou. Don’t know if a 2013 trip is going to be possible but if it is, hard to believe it could top that one. Thanks Lou!

    When I went to the park with my best freind

  5. Chuck Zitta says:

    Since we did not visit the parks in 2012, I would have to say my most memorable Disney moment would have to be the premier of the Avengers movie. My boys at the time were 15 and 12. It was probably one of, if not the favorite movie we saw that year.

    Really enjoyed listening to the round table discussion on 2012. Always enjoy the end of year discussions and the refreshers/highlights on what happened.

    Thanks again Lou and guests for another spectacular year of WDW Radio!!!
