    Coming down in july of 89 right after finding out I was accepted in to the College Program. Entering the Studios and the first shop I entered was the Dark Room Camera Center. I looked at mom and said I hope this is the shop I was assigned to. The first full day of work I was assigned to work there and loved it. being a long time fan of the parks I loved being able to answer guests questions in ways that some of the long time cast members didnt know.

    I don't remember my first trip to Disney World. I was only about a year old. I only saw movies and snapshots which I always thought were kind of funny. We have a movie where my dad's telling me to chase Minnie. I ran after her as fast as my legs would go and managed to catch her before she went backstage. She bent down and picked me up and gave me a big hug. Then we have Chip and Dale pushing me down Main Street in those old blue strollers they had back then. My first real memory of Disney World was when I was about 7yrs old and we stayed at the Contemporary for the first time. Valentine's Day was during our trip and my mother bought me red jeans, a red bow for my hair, and a sweatshirt with Minnie surrounded by red hearts. We had dinner reservations at an Italian restaurant that use to be where Chef Mickey's is now...I think that's where it was. My brother got sick and my father stayed in the room with him so my mother and I went alone. As we were walking to the tower Goofy showed up out of nowhere and he took us by the hand and escorted us to the restaurant. That's one of my favorite Disney World memories..but I have many more.

    First, to DWT! It's great to have you here!
    Secondly, you mentioned some photos from "way-back-when" . We would love to see them. You should post them in the gallery. I really enjoy looking at WDW, back in the 1970's (they bring back some wonderful memories ). I have an album of just '70's pictures...take a peek .

    What I remember ...

    I was 3 the first time I went to Disney. My grandparents took me and my cousin, and they only got a stroller for her (I guess they figured a 3 yr old would want to walk everywhere). They ended up carrying me through most of the park, so the next day at Sea World, we each got our own stroller. Besides being scared to tears in the Haunted Mansion, and riding Dumbo, that's all I remember. Of course, I'm over my HM phobia now - it's one of my very favorite attractions at WDW!

    Our family has a tradition of taking pictures in the same location (sometimes same pose) year after year... it started in '78 when my parents went and posed together on the bridge at Swiss Family Treehouse. They recently posed for another in the same spot. It's funny to see how much they've changed, yet they're still children at heart. Mom makes me and my sister pose in UK in EPCOT every trip. I'll try to get those pics from Mom and post them soon.

    I was about 18 months old when I first visited Disney, so needless to say, I don't remember much. But on a recent trip my Mom bought both my sister and I the first memory of Disney frame. If you haven't seen it it's a wooden frame and has words carved across it that talk about still remembering the first trip we ever took to Disney World and seeing the castle and smelling the popcorn and stuff like that. Anyway, she wouldn't let me have the frame right away because she took it home with her to put a photo in it. The frame arrived back down here to me a few days ago with a photo of me and my mom with Mickey Mouse. I might not remember the trip, but I can tell from that picture that I was terrified of Mickey! I'm clutching my mom's leg and staring up at Mickey in tears. Luckily I got over my fear, otherwise our yearly trips would have been very traumatic.

    Well, when I first went to Walt Disney World, I was about 8 months old, so I really don't remember THAT much. I can only remember when I was 4 years old, and I had broken my arm, and had a Mickey Mouse sling on. Mickey and all the other characters pretened to cry when they saw my arm in a cast with a mickey sling. It was still fin though. I got special treatment from the CM's. Always an advantage when you have a cute kid with a broken arm! (JUST KIDDING) but I did get to ride in front of the monorail more than once on our stay at the world!!!!!

    Good move. Can't let this one fade-away.
    As an aside, I don't think any of the other WDW parks offer quite the same indescribable feeling and experience as Magic Kingdom does. I've yet to find a themepark that tops it, and I doubt I ever will.

    My parents kept promising to take us to Disneyland, but we had to wait for the youngest one to reach the age of 6. Just about the time we saw there might be hope, along would come a new baby. I thought all was lost till I got married and my husband was posted in California. At the tender age of 24, I got to Disneyland for the first time, and I was 31 when I got to Disney World for the first time. Each experience was just as exciting as I had dreamed it would be when I begged to go at a kid. Surprisingly, I still get the same rush when I come into the park. Last month we went to Disneyland Paris for the first time.
    mini-V What will you celebrate?

    to the DWT Family mini V! I'm sure that you will agree that it was worth the wait! Do you have children of your own that you've been able to share the experience with???

    Magic Kingdom was the first park I actually ever went to, but EPCOT has the most memories because I used to love walking along the promenade in the morning on my way to work. No guests, no noise, just the 'singing bushes' as I used to call them. It was always so peaceful.
    Which was good because I was usually hung over....
    .....just kidding, I always marvelled at actually getting to work at WDW and since I was on a 6 month contract I took advantage of every day.

    Wow, that was beautiful. I am getting pretty sentimental in my old age.
