    But in actualilty, I was 9 (in 1997) when I first went to Disney. When I get down there on Wednesday it'll be my 6th visit.

    to be as precise as possible i was minus 4 month and "piggybagged" in my moms belly, when my parents visited WDW in 1980. Next time when i was 4 then 8, 15, 17, 26 and soon 28 when we hit WDW this summer - which also will be the first time for my 1˝ yr daughter to live the Magic.

    I actually started a thread like this about a year ago but it died out so I'm happy to see someone else getting on the same topic.

    My first trip was in 1983. I was 6 years old. I actually have some memories of it too... unfortunately they are of the stomach bug I picked up on the trip and throwing up in the back of my grandparent's rental car. LOL!

    EDIT: My husband's first trip was in 2005 when I took him after we had started dating. He was 34. My son's first trip was in February 2007, he was just over 10 months old!

    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    My first trip to the Magic was in 1984, I was 5. I went with my mom and my grandma. We stayed at the Contemporary. I have a picture of me in my mickey ears, a pink swimming suit and a pirate flag (will post).
    My husbands first time was in 2001, he was 24 and it was also his first time on a plane. My daughters first time to WDW will be in April of next year as you can see from my ticker.

    I was 10 or 11 and have been obsessing about WDW since. Back then there was only the Magic Kingdom. My oldest son went before he was born (I didn't know I was expecting til I got home) and again at 5 years old. His brother will also have his first visit at 5 years old, he is turning 4 in June so it's coming up, slowly but surely.

    I was 10, the week coming upto my hol I was really really ill so we decided like on the last day whether to go or not, Luckily recovered enough to travel.

    At the time living in England and non of my friends having gone before I wasn't even that keen on going as I thought it would be for babies. Needless to say first day in one of the parks soon changed my mind and I fell in love straight away.


    I cried for a full two weeks on return I missed it so much.

    I had just turned 10 for my first trip to WDW and my first trip to a Disney park was in 1969 -- Disneyland for my 5th birthday !!!

    I blame my mother for my addiction because if she hadn't taken me, I wouldn't be this bad !!

    I am in the process of planning my first solo trip to WDW this June (which is my 31st trip to a Disney park !!!) and I am taking my kids back in November for their 4th trip !!!
    Can't wait to go back to my happy place !

    All it takes is a little pixie dust...a true heart of a child...to enjoy the Happiest Place on Earth !

    PS -- my son was 4 years old and my daughter was 7 months old for their first trips to WDW. For each of their 16th birthday I promised each of them a week's vacation with a friend (and not a boy/girl friend !!!!) to WDW !!! And I also said if they can convince their future spouses to get married in WDW I will pay for Mickey and Minnie to attend the ceremony !!! Talk about living through your kids !!!!!

    My first trip wasn't until I was 12 when we moved to Florida.

    However, that was back in 1972! I remembered watching and reading about the construction of WDW and being so excited when I found out we were moving to Florida. It was raining on the day we went, but my brother and I couldn't have cared less. I can remember almost everything about that trip - especially bugging my Mom to buy more Magic Key coupons so my brother and I could go on more E ticket rides!

    I have been back to WDW more than 300 times since that first trip!

    My kids didn't have to wait as long as I did - DD went at 11 months and DS went at 10 months.

    I was four or five, but I don't remember that trip. (Well, I do remember that my father forced me to ride Space Mountain AND SIT IN THE FRONT! I was terrified.) I didn't next visit until I was a sophomore in high school with my band for Disney's Magic Music Days. Since then, I've been 11 more times.
