Coming Soon: Remembering your #DisneyMemory
Disney Memories. Certainly not a new topic here at My Dreams of Disney — but it isn’t one that we focus on as much as we used to. Well, my friends, that is about to change. Starting on Monday, we’re going to be taking a look at a special something at Disney, and I’m going to share with you my #DisneyMemory in that post. It could be a picture of an attraction, a resort, some food, whatever strikes me on that day, but it will have a Disney focus. Better yet, though, I’d love for my post to trigger your own Memory — your own #DisneyMemory — that you would share with all of us. That’s the purpose of this blog, you know — to take My Dreams of Disney and to help you make them Your Dreams of Disney. So who’s up for the challenge? Who’s ready to get started? Come join in the fun, and follow along online with the hashtag #DisneyMemory! I’ll see you online, and I’ll see you on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram too!
Our first memory comes to us from the Walt Disney World sign on World Drive. I remember as a punky 11 year old kid in 1979 riding to the Magic Kingdom with my grandparents and my Mom and Sister and seeing that sign. Back then, the only park was the Magic Kingdom, so when you saw the sign, you still drove for about 3 miles until you actually got near the Transportation and Ticketing Center, and to this 11 year old, that drive felt like driving out of Florida and into an entirely new world. That, of course, is exactly what Disney wanted — for you to leave your life behind, even for just a short while, and to remember what it was like to be a kid again. I’ll touch on this theme a bit more in future posts, but for me, on that summer day in 1979, seeing that incredible sign was just the first #DisneyMemory. Tell us about your first Disney Memory online here in the comments, or on any of our social media platforms! Thanks for sharing, and thanks for visiting!
