Disney Memories

Guest Writer Wednesday

Disney Memories By: Rebecca Kingsley Gonzales

When I was an infant my family started going to Disney, so my love of Disney started at a very young age and I have so many great memories. Disney has always brought me such happiness.  As soon as I drive under the Disney arch I tear up and I am so happy to be “home”. The arch is kinda like a time machine that takes you back to when you were young, or for me it is.

Choosing which rides you love at Disney is like having to choose between a Mickey’s ice cream bar and a Dole Whip, because they all have such special meanings. Like the Haunted Mansion, I remember when I was five I would cry and cry when we would ride it because I was afraid of the hitchhiking ghosts, but every time we got off I would cry because I really wanted to ride again. It’s one of my favorite rides. Riding it now just makes me feel happy!  I do however miss Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride and Snow White’s Scary Adventure, they also scared me but were my favorites

Being a child back when Disney opened Epcot I really miss a lot of the old rides. Horizons and World of Motion were always my favorites. While visiting the Land Pavilion we loved eating at The Good Turn, which is now The Garden Grill; I must say I still love eating there.  It brings back such wonderful memories. I love when we pass by the old farm house!

I, like many, many others am so very blessed to have been able to go to Disney multiple times.  I am so very glad that Walt Disney had a dream, and he made that dream possible.   I would like to end with one of my most favorite Walt Disney quotes:
 “I only hope that we don't lose sight of one thing - that it was all started by a mouse.”~~ Walt Disney
