    See, and living here, it's about more than just losing fire fighters. We lost 3,000 people that day, not 300.

    Really, Walt? Disneyland is MY land? Why would I want a silly little land when I can have the WORLD.

    Yep. Sure not forgetting those people! Just that the public service loses hit me harder personally
    . Prayers and pixie dust to everyone who lost family and friends on that terrible day.

    Amen.

    I think I am going to try and move this discussion to an article on a new thread about Disney 9/11. It is a good reminder of the day for those of us fortunate enough to far away from the 9/11 tragedies.

    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    I have friends who were at the World when it had to be evacuated after the attack. We all reflect on the emotions we felt that day.....but I can't imagine either being right there at ground zero.....or even having to evacuate the most magical place on earth....

    Re: Oh how I miss...

    I completely agree! Some of my favorite memories of Walt Disney World have been walking around the parks by myself. I remember spending an entire day at Epcot alone while I was there working. I think I only got on two rides because I was too busy taking in all the sights and sounds. It may be cliche, but I, as many others, also miss Horizons.

    I miss going on the Land Boat ride with my friends, just to go on it. And then going on Soarin!

    I liked the Land boats better with a guide. They pointed out specific things and added some diversity. Now it is more generic. Still one of my favorites at Epcot. Maybe because I am an avid Gardener 6 months a year.
