    [QUOTE=GirlStar613]usually it's right as we're driving onto the property...my brother and i start jumping up and down in the car when we see the Walt Disney World sign with all the characters on it so that you know you are officially there! QUOTE]

    OMG I thought i was the only one who did that!! (and im 29!!!) Our ritual has always been the same. Check in- watch the Disney TV! (i want that station at my house) Then ride the monorail and get off at all the hotels.

    My ritual for Magic Kingdom has ALWAYS been the same. Walk into the park, okay im like a jumping bean. Get to the very front of Main Street, where you get that perfect view of the castle, and i cry (cause im happy im there! ) Then we take pictures and go straight to Dumbo, Peter Pan, Its a Small World and Haunted Mansion. I'd go on, but that would take too long!

    We get to the airport, go to the bathroom, get the luggage, and get to the resort as fast as possible. Then, We usually go to a park, either EPCOT or MGM. Epcot for japaneesse food, or MGM for R'n'R

    I usually always make sure that I arrive before noon. I will always unpack and get settled in. Take a walk and get some lunch, have a swim, take a small nap, shower and head out to dinner and then to downtown disney and shop around and see what the new stuff . Come back to hotel earlier and have a few drinks go to bed earlier this way I start out early and the first park I usually go to is MK.
    DISNEY IS MY HAPPY PLACE THE ONLY TIME THAT I GET 2WKS OF HAPPINESS AND WORRY FREE TIME!!!!!! This time I will see it through the eyes of my baby girl born 2008.

    Next Trip is December 2010

    If we fly, we just check in and head to EPCOT, since we don't have to worry about luggage with Magical Express. If we drive, it's usually late in the day so we go to Downtown Disney.

    It's amazing to think that this all started with one little mouse.

    Re: What's the first thing you do?

    When we first arrive at our hotel, My sister and I imidiatly (sp) hit the gift shop (in whichever disney resort we might be at) to check out all of the new things. Then, we settle into out rooms and put on who else? STACY!!. After a little rest from the trip down, we get ready and leave Disney property to check out the disney outlet stores (You know, that Character Premire) and shop for some discount goodies. We usually eat somewhere other than disney property the first night or go back to out moderate resort to eat in the food court. We hit Magic Kingdom early the next mornig with Adventureland being our first stop.

    Good thread..........After check in and unloading in our room, we don our suits and hit the pool, cooler of adult beverages and wade in. Nothing beats the disney Florida sun after a 1.5 day train trip to WDW. We look at each other and can't believe we're here, and that's after 43 trips. Yes, we're home again.

    Re: What's the first thing you do?

    Our first day is rarely the same, but at some point usually includes dinner at a resort and putzing around the hotel and getting the general lay out. The first day at the PARKS however..it must be Epcot and it must be SSE. I am not officially in my full on disney mindset til I smell Rome burning.
