My arrival moment is pretty early: Getting of the plane, walking into the terminal and hearing the American announcements tells me we've made it!!!
Going on the "tram thing" at Orlando International Airport.
My arrival moment is the second that I can see palm trees from the window of the plane. It means the weather's changed (BRRRR Chicago weather >:[ ), the scenery's changed, and my attitude's about to change too, because we're finally on our way to the happiest place on earth !!! ;D
Wanted to revive this thread, to see if any of the new users have some ideas to add!
I'll go along with the post above and say that since I usually go in December, once I feel the head from the ramp as I'm leaving the plane, I know I've 'arrived'.
For me, it's pulling into the Animal Kingdom Lodge, our favorite resort! The sights and sounds and smells let us know that we have arrived!
Getting into the Orlando airport is my moment.
I've never stopped to take pictures of the WDW arch as you enter. No need to cause a fender bender. But sometimes I realize I'm there when I first pull past the toll plaza on my way to Wilderness Lodge.
