Welcome to those of you joining me from A Disney Mom’s Thoughts and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 4th stop on our Magical Blogorail. I’m joining in the fun on the green loop this month – standing in for my friend Randy from Your Highway in the Sky. This month’s topic is “How Do You Know When You’ve Arrived?”
I decided that it would be fun to poll my family and friends to see how they know they have arrived at Walt Disney World . . .
For me, I feel like I’m “home” when we arrive at our resort.
You know you’re there when you see the big sign that says “Disney” and, if you can’t figure that out, you’re an idiot.
Can you tell she’s 13?!
Until I ride Peter Pan…I’m not in Neverland, so to speak. It’s the first thing Liz and I ride whenever we spend a weekend or a few days at Disney. Its the start to every major trip. When we lived so close by, it never felt like we “arrived” because it never felt like we left. So when we’d have an extended Disney stay, we would always start with Pan. Now that we live 1000 miles away…I guess it’ll feel like we arrived whenever we’re back in the state of Florida. Cause you know…nobody misses Florida, we just miss Disney.
When I go under the arches! When I go potty in a spotless bathroom!
Since most of our trips we are at Fort Wilderness, I’d say the first time I hear the boat launch headed to the MK is when I know I have officially arrived. That boat whistle may be my favorite sound ever, after the sounds of my babies crying and the words I love you, of course.
When you start seeing the buses and you see the arches of the Welcome to Walt Disney World sign, everyone starts to squeal and you feel the overwhelming urge to pull over and take a picture.
Well, for me, we always stay at Pop so when we walk in the doors and smell the waffle cones haha.
When I first see that Hidden Mickey that’s part of the electrical complex on the side of the interstate, then I know we’re close. When we pass under those arches that proclaim Walt Disney World, then I know we’re on Disney property. However, I don’t feel like we’re in a proper Disney park until we hit up the nearest pin stand and see what exclusives have been released.
What do YOU say?
How do you know YOU have arrived?
