bumping this one back up since we have a lot of new members!!! I love this thread!!!
I grew up going to DL and spent 2 summers when I was a tween at Disney World because my dad was writing a game show produced by disney. But I voted for Epcot because all my very happiest memories are there. I worked in The Land pavillion as an advanced intern and I'll never forget the first time I got to walk in as a CM. It was one of my greatest dreams and it was coming true. I almost started to cry but I didn't want to be that nerdy in front of all the other new interns. Then I saw another girl tear up and I knew I'd found a friend. I actually wound up making the best friends I've ever had there and spent 6 wonderful months enjoying the magic of Disney with them. Awww man I'm getting all teary now just thinking about it. Geez louise!!
I was 4 years old, in 1976, when I went the first time. I remember the patriotic parade, many attractions that are no longer around, and being exhausted on the way home... but too excited to sleep
With living over the pond, I have only been three times.
I remember the build up to my first visit - looking at magazines, picture and watching holiday programs on tv etc...
And then it was all real.... I was there on a monorail going towards Epcot and I saw SSE with '2000' over it for my own eyes!! I knew at this point that I was at WDW.
I also remember the next day going to MK and walking up Main Street and seeing Cinders Castle at the end - stuff pictures are made of!!!!

I have never been able to confine that fun to office hours." ~ Walt Disney
Everytime I'm on the tram on the way into the park, I just can't believe I'm actually here. I'd count down the weeks,days,hours, until I'd enter those Disney gates, *goosebumps* Its just an amazing feeling you can never replace.
But I'd have to say my top 2 memories are riding splash mountain for the very first time, and always bugging my mom for an ice cream bar that looks like this (actually I still do that... haha)

What Was It Like
I was overcome at the feelings I felt, it felt like you had walked into a children,s fairy tale book. The Castle ,the Parades ,& the Castle stageshow...the castmembers, just everything was truly MAGIC
Anyone remember this song from the parade??
REMEMBER THE MAGIC That sums it all up for me................I remember it all the time as I play the music from the parks .
I Belle Maggie
Magic Kingdom, because I just remember staring and taking pictures at the castle, seeing all my favorite characters, watching the parades, and the fireworks show at the end.
Everytime I go to Disney I don't really feel I've arrived until I stand on Main Street and look up at the castle. I also like to go there just before I leave, to sort of say goodbye. And I always make a wish that I will come back someday.
Its always worked so far!

i was very young when i first went, but every time i go(a lot) i feel like that young child that i once was..All of my dreams feel like they can come true..and all obstacles can be conquered!
i loved magic journeys...it was so great! Now, that its closed, i miss it so much. but, i recently found the theme song to it. how nostalgic!
I love the Magic Kingdom so much.
I can't remember the 1st time i went to disney world because i was too young, but the magic kingdom brings back the most memories for me!!
