Remember The Magic

Back in 1997, I took my very first trip to Walt Disney World with my family.  I was in the 4th grade.  Who would have known that that one trip started would ignite a fire inside of me?  The beginning of a passion that can last a lifetime.  Here are some photos of the vacation that forever changed my life. 

Above:  My family in front of the Cinderella Castle decked out for the 25th anniversary.  From left to right, my brother, Scott; my niece, Brooke; my sister-in-law, Tammi; My mom; young me; and my other brother, Chris.

Below:  After I got home I posed with my souvenirs.  Guess where the drum is from!

Below:  Bonus picture!  From my second trip to WDW in 2001


  1. How sad that the castle was so hideous for your first trip!

  2. I agree. I remember telling my mom on that trip that I wished I could see the castle look normal. Even then I knew better... Haha!

  3. Lovely photos! Your excitement is so much fun to read!
