    I have a lot of childhood memories there. Disney is just that special place that you can retreat to, and just become a kid again, no matter what. It's just magical.

    For me it's the attention to detail in everything from the creation of the attractions to the customer service. No matter what they do, they find the way to do it "right". I can always count on Disney to provide quality in everything they do and I enjoy so much of it.

    For us it's the Magic, the ability to compeltely forget the outside world and totally immserse ourselves in Disney. We both had went as little kids and took our first trip together in 2000. Somehting clicked and we've been crazy for the place ever since

    I don't know, maybe the fact that I'm at Disney World!
    No really, I love disney, because I practically grew up with disney. I had a disney themed room, all I would watch was disney cartoons and movies, and my family and I went WDW quite often. I love it for the "childhood" factor.

    I adored Mickey as a child. I waited up on Sunday evenings to watch WWOD. Everything about Disney seemed magical and I said one day I would go to Disneyland. AND I DID! We had a Mickey themed wedding and a suprise honeymoon to DL paid for by my in-laws. I will never forget my first moments inside the park B4 the rope drop on Main St. My DH have travelled the world and visited lots of theme parks and no where is there a place that comes close to Disney parks. Our children have been to local fun parks and so on but even they notice that Disney is different. The wonder, magic, attention to details and cleanliness makes Disney special (& the fact that we must travel 17 hours on a plane to get there). My childhood dreams came true when my husband and I walked through those gates...what a feeling!

    It is all the memories I have from going with my Grandparents and Parents all the way up to taking my own children for their first time. It is timeless....it is a part of who I am.....it is magical.

    Walt Disney World is the only place I've ever been where I pretty much forgot about the 'real world'. You're so isolated from every day stuff...and I LOVE IT!

    I love the feeling of Magic from the moment you enter the property until you leave...and then you start looking forward to the next trip!! Everyone wants you to be happy- no other place comes close!

    What makes Disney special to me?

    Well...the movies always connected to me even at a young age. They just made me believe in the impossible, and let my imagination grow more. Also more specifically my love for WDW, the MK was the first theme park I ever visited in my life that I truly loved. I knew I'd be a Disney fan and a big WDW fan from there on
    .
    Keep it cool, and keep moving forward!
