Walt Disney World Compliment - Remember The Magic
Last July, we visited Walt Disney World with our son for the first time. He had turned 4 only a few months before and we were as excited as can be. This was something I'd been waiting to do since he was born.
Yes, it was hot..almost unbearably so and incredibly sticky to boot because of a hurricane brewing off the coast. Yes it was crowded, but not unbearably so. The longest we waited in line for anything was the hour plus we spent waiting to be the first family of the day at Camp Minnie-Mickey in the Animal Kingdom.
The castmembers that we encountered were, for the most part, extremely helpful. One, upon learning it was our first trip as a family, presented us with a "My First Trip" button for our son and "Honorary WDW Citizen" buttons for my husband and myself. Another selected our son to help lead Lightning and Tow Mater into the greeting area for a meet/greet. We saw the same CM later, working as a handler for Sorcerer Mickey and she remembered us. The Mayor of Hollywood (a streetmosphere character) took time out to talk to my husband about the state of affairs in "Hollywood".
It could not have been more magical or special for us.
I know people have said, "Oh don't take your child to WDW before they are *insert age here* because they won't remember it!". That's not true. My son constantly reminds us of how we got to ride the monorail (his favorite ride), see Mickey Mouse and how Mommy got to ride a rollercoaster but he has to wait till he's bigger.
