This page isn’t about showing you all my holiday snaps but I wanted to share a few photos that trigger special memories of my WDW vacations, memories that enhance my Disney daydreaming!
Okay, so this photo isn’t of WDW but of Gatwick airport! Our WDW holiday in December 2010 started with us being forced to stay in a Gatwick hotel for 3 days when the airport was closed to heavy snow and our flight was cancelled. It made me even more grateful to see those MK gates a few days later!
Mark and I in Magic Kingdom before park opening. We were waiting for our Keys to the Kingdom tour to start and we were walking around showing off our ‘guest’ name tags!!! I LOVED that tour!!
Meeting Lou Mongello for the first time at the WDW Radio 200th show party. I was excited, starstruck and overwhelmed!
Meeting Beci Mahnken from MEI and Mouse Fan Travel. She loved hearing about me setting my alarm clock to wake up at 1.45am in the UK to watch her live streaming of IllumiNations.
The above two pictures were taken after queueing up to meet Lotso. After we had taken our ‘official’ shots Lotso started ‘talking’ to us about my hair; how is it possible for us to know what a character is talking to us about when they don’t make any noise? Amazing!! What I didn’t realise until I looked at my Photopass cd was that the photographer had continued to snap away and captured the magical moment perfectly.
Spending the day with Lou Mongello in Epcot, recording a show for WDW Radio in the UK pavilion. A true Disney dream come true.
Getting ready to attend Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom. Orlando was experiencing record low temperatures and I knew I had to wrap up warm. So I wore leggings, jeans, ankle socks, knee-length socks, boots, a vest top, a t-shirt, a jumper, two hoodies, a jacket, a scarf, gloves, and a Mickey ears santa hat!!
I’d read so much on the history of Celebration and couldn’t wait to finally visit this beautiful place. We were even lucky enough to spend some time at the History Center, looking at old documents covering the advertising, the lottery, and the launch of the town.
