    Best Theme Park Moment?

    Please share a wonderful WDW park moment. Mine, although it seems trivial will always stand out in my mind: Drink in hand at Epcot about 8:45 on a warm June evening. The sky is getting darker, the pre-show loop is playing over the speakers and a breeze is blowing through the palms between Morocco and France. Nothing was happening, no characters signing autographs, no entertainers performing, no riding of rides, just a pure "Disney" feeling was in the air for that brief period of time. I will always remember those few seconds even though nothing was going on.

    I have so many. But one that always comes to me is when I got asked to ride the Teacups with Alice and Mad Hatter. It was such a great experience. I had so much fun riding the ride with them, then getting a photo afterwards.

    It really was! Except I got really dizzy, as they LOVED to spin the teacup really fast.

    Too many,

    I enjoy every moment i just get to sit and take it all in...
    I like when cast members build up things
    Example:
    Walking thru Frontierland before Spectromagic and a castmember screams to the kids in the crowd, "this is a light parade so that means we are going to have to turn off all these lights! On the count of three I want everyone to blow out these lights! 1-2-3!" All the kids blew, I blew, my dad blew, the adults all blew, and the lights of Frontierland turned off... While I knew the moment the lights turn off for Spectromagic, the way that the castmember handled it was very creative and involving and made all the kids feel really really cool...
    Wishin' I was in the World


    What will you CELEBRATE!
