My wife, Judy has been a fan of Chip and Dale all of her life. On one of our trips to The Animal Kingdom, she finally got to meet them. As you can see from her smile, she was one happy lady. She loved how they have fun with the people (Submitted by Tom G.)

On Alexis’ first visit to Walt Disney World, she wasn’t too sure about the characters at first. That is until a special encounter when Minnie Mouse touched her hands gently with her hands and then nose and then asked for a kiss on the nose. Lexi kissed her and after that wanted to kiss all of the characters on the nose! (Submitted by Jessica B.)

Thanks for putting out such an informative, well-written newsletter. I always enjoy reading it. I was touched by your story’s previous story about treasuring every moment because you don’t know what could happen next. In 2014, I took my daughter on a spur of the moment Disney World trip for her spring break. We enjoyed the Flower & Garden Festival at EPCOT, something we had never seen before during our previous vacations. We have been to Disney many times, but this would prove to be most special because just a few months later, I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. While fighting for my life, thru all the bad times, I have had my memories of our most recent trip to help me through. My goal is to get better and visit again in 2016 with my family. So, yes, everyone should enjoy every day of the magic that they have because you never know when your world can get turned upside down. (Submitted by Michelle P.)

On April 1st we celebrated our son’s 10th birthday (on his actual birthday) by doing the 4 park Grand Slam. We were able to hop to all the parks and accomplish almost everything on his to-do list for the day. No better memory of turning double digits than celebrating at all 4 parks on his special day!

This is from 2005 when my kids were much smaller. Everyone loved the shirts. I found them after my great grandmother passed away. She bought them in 1980. They were still in the package with the receipt. Everyone wanted to know where we got them! (Submitted by browns.525)

Ten years ago I met my Prince Charming. We also soon found out that we are both Disney fanatics. He is a longtime owner of 2 Disney Vacation Club resorts so over the years we have enjoyed many blended family adventures in Walt Disney World.

In March we took my 2 grandchildren for a 5 day vacation to our favorite vacation spot. On March 31st, Steve had made dinner reservations in Cinderella Castle. We had the perfect table in the window and enjoyed the amazing fireworks display from our seats. I turned to thank Steve for an amazing magical experience and realized he was on his knee next to me proposing by saying “in the happiest place on earth will you make me the happiest man”. Of course, I said yes and my 2 grandchildren ages 12 & 8 were as thrilled as we were.

The staff made the occasion more amazing by presenting us with a glass slipper surrounded by rose petals and desserts of a solid chocolate slipper and strawberries and beautiful champagne glasses to toast with. We are beginning to make our wedding plans and are sure to incorporate a Disney theme! (Submitted by Nancy R.)

Meet n Greet with Chewbacca

At Disney’s Hollywood Studios we went to visit Chewbacca. My son (white hat) made Chewie’s “wookie” sound. Chewie who had been interacting with my husband at the time, immediately turned around with this surprised look on his face and then proceeded to give my son a huge hug. It was definitely a magical moment! (Submitted by Lois S.)

Addison (8mo) and Chloe (2) were mesmerized with Queen Elsa in Norway. (Submitted by Jim and Alyssa C.)

Published On Aug 25, 2016


We visited Walt Disney World (4/2016) with our son & family. Chloe is 2 1/2 yrs old and Addison is 4 months. One of our first character visits was with Tinkerbell at Magic Kingdom meet and greet. As we walked thru, we told Chloe that we were all shrinking to the size of the fairies and she totally bought into it! We could hardly keep her contained while waiting for the family in front of us to finish meeting with Tink! (Submitted Jim and Chrislette Cherveny)
