View Full Version : Close your eyes.....Count to 3.....Open them.....Where are you now?

When I do that, and I open my eyes, I'm sitting on the TTA just 2 seconds before it picks up speed on the beginning of its Tomorrowland journey......mere moments before I can sit back and feel the light breeze on my face as it cruises along its track.

06-11-2006, 10:23 AM

06-11-2006, 11:41 AM
Walking under the train station, stepping foot unto Main Street and seeing the castle and the sights of Main Street for the 1st time! Makes me teary just think about it!

06-11-2006, 12:06 PM

Whoa! I'm in the front of the monorail! And...and we're approaching Epcot! Here we come...zooming around Spaceship Earth... WOOHOO!! :woohoo: :thumbsup:

06-11-2006, 02:45 PM
I am going down the big hill on Splash Mountain...Weeeeeee!

06-11-2006, 04:01 PM
My family and I have just arrived a few hours ago and it's night time. We are entering Magic Kingdom and see the castle and everything all lit up. It's almost time for Wishes start so we get right in line for Big Thunder Mt. Railroad because the lines are really short ( everyone else is waiting for the show). So we get on quickly and get the seats in the very back ( the extra bumpy ones :D ) Then as we're climbing the hill we see the fireworks go off! It's breathtaking and incredibly surreal. The ride of course feelfs like it finishes too quickly but because there's no wait they let us stay in the same seats and again! ( yes I know Im stretching it, but that has actually happened before). We leave the ride, ( waiting it out a bit to avoiid the crowds, and look in shops). Then we head back to the hotel , excited for the next day where we will get to enjoy the Disney magic all over again! :mickey:

06-11-2006, 04:02 PM
I'm sitting in the San Angel Inn at a quiet table on "the river of time" watching the people glide gently by, as the volcano erupts in the distance . I think to myself "in just a few minutes I'll be one of those people on El Rio del Tiempo". Oh and then I think " I've only got 33 days of this vacation left before I have to go back to the real world". Then I tell my DW " maybe we should switch from our MK/lagoon view room at the Poly and stay a few weeks at one of the Grand Floridians suites just for the fun of it". OK I have a very hyper imagination, but you did ask..... :thumbsup:

1... 2... 3... We are at our place for the start of Illuminations.

06-11-2006, 04:46 PM
We've just gotten out of a nice showing of Impressions de France, grabbed dessert and :wine: and are sitting down by the water watching the sunset and all the little lights coming on around the world.


just gotten off Haunted Mansion, on our way to BTM (cause there are no lines ;) ) and then staking out a nice quiet place over by the Crystal Palace to watch Wishes

too many good times to choose from!

06-11-2006, 04:57 PM
DisneyorBust Dad here,
We are standing on the end of Main Street, just past Casey's, snacks in hand :popcorn: as WISHES :fworks: begins.

06-11-2006, 05:14 PM
We've just arrived and are crossing town square as I wait to see my friend Kim's face when she sees the castle for the first time :mickey:

06-11-2006, 05:16 PM
I just closed my eyes and I saw myself lining up for Spacehip Earth, taking in the Future World area music, preparing to hear Jeremy Irons croon in my ear.

06-12-2006, 08:31 AM

I'm with you on this one!!!!!! :mickey: :marg:

06-12-2006, 08:39 AM

WOW! I'm sitting on my balcony at the WL, enjoying the peaceful sound of Silver Springs and looking over the pool seeing mama duck scoot her ducklings into the water for their morning bath. It's such a peaceful morning I think DH and I will take a quite walk around WL property before we start our day. :cloud9:

06-12-2006, 08:42 AM
Going down the final hill on Splash Mountain with my 7 year old DD - its her first time!!! (And she got soaked- not me) :cool:

06-12-2006, 08:44 AM

Not a pretty site!!!! :blush: :D

06-12-2006, 09:05 AM
I've just arrived at my resort and am receiving all the folders and park info during check-in...my whole vacation is still ahead of me!!!

06-12-2006, 02:31 PM
I'm in line right behind GoinGoofy, trying not to push you outta the way so I can get started on my vacation too!.......... :blush: :party:

06-12-2006, 02:37 PM
I'm in the Main Street Confectionary getting some goodies for tonight at Wishes! :fworks:

06-12-2006, 02:49 PM
...I am standing in front of Spaceship Earth staring at the beautiful view that I miss so much...

06-12-2006, 03:14 PM
... top floor of the double decker bus on my way up main street.


06-12-2006, 04:26 PM
It's not working for me... everytime I start to count down my phone rings or someone comes to my desk... :fit: but if it did work and I was able to do the complete countdown, I would be in a suite at the Grand Floridian, enjoying the quiteness and the luxury!

06-12-2006, 04:34 PM
I'm in line right behind GoinGoofy, trying not to push you outta the way so I can get started on my vacation too!.......... :blush: :party:Your manners are much appreciated!

06-12-2006, 06:27 PM
I too am still sitting here at my desk lookin at the screen. There are so many places I could be at Disney right now and my mind is boggled. Will live it out in August!!!

But if I could be somewhere right now, I'd probably want to be on Peter Pan's flight, enjoying the view over London and watching my kids reactions. I love indoor rides....


06-12-2006, 06:38 PM
:mickey: 1...2...3...I'm walking down Mainstreet at night with the buildings covered in lights and the castle illuminated it all its glory! :cloud9:

06-12-2006, 06:55 PM
One of two things:

1. Opening my eyes and I am still laying on a beach chair at the Grand Floridian with a drink in my hand.


2. Opening my eyes and walking to breakfast at the Crystal Palace at MK.

06-14-2006, 11:20 AM
3...2...1...I am just getting into my vehicle at Spaceship Earth. Listening to the soothing sounds of Jeremy Irons and realizing I'm finally at least BACK in my favorite place. :fworks: Just 80 some more days til I can really be there.

06-14-2006, 01:08 PM
I'd be in my room at the Poly that I had on my honeymoon. I'd be watching all the lights come on at MK when the sun was starting to come up.

06-14-2006, 01:23 PM
Relaxing in the hot tub at the Beach Club!

06-14-2006, 08:31 PM
Awwww man, I'm at home in Connecticut! :D

I'm walking down Main St. USA on the first day of my trip, watching as the Castle gets closer and feeling my excitement build :cloud9:

06-14-2006, 10:03 PM
I'm with my whole family sitting in the center of the stadium as the riverboat rounds the corner at the finale of Fantasmic.
Some imagination, huh! :smickey:

07-27-2006, 04:26 PM

07-27-2006, 04:30 PM
I am settled on my chair in Soarin as the ride is lifting off and at the same time I am walking down Main Street USA. I am so lucky to have a split personality. :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

I am lounging at the quiet pool at the Poly with a "Sand-in-your-pants". Oh I wish I was there.:marg:

03-19-2007, 04:13 PM
I awake refreshed in my canopied bed in my glorious suite in the castle and wonder how long it will take that liveried footman to bring my eggs benedict.:cloud9:

03-19-2007, 04:16 PM
I am reliving watching the wonder, awe, and huge smile of my DD5 coming out of the Bibbidi Bobbidi boutique. I can't wait to take her again this year. She will tell you that is the best thing that has happened to her in her whole life! I just love making her happy!

03-19-2007, 04:28 PM
Ahhhhhh, the CM behind the counter at the Boulangerie Patisserie just placed a fresh pithivier on a plate for me. I can taste its soft buttery and almondy goodness now.

03-19-2007, 05:32 PM
...on the Boardwalk looking out at Crescent Lake trying to decide if I want to walk over to Epcot or MGM...

03-19-2007, 05:50 PM
3..2..1..I am standing in the check-in line at Boardwalk inn. I am full of excitement and anticipation as I am about to check into what will be home for the next week!

I love this break from reality! Back to work now...:thumbsup:

03-19-2007, 06:41 PM
We are on the Monorail for the first time of the vacation. I have a BIG grin on my face as we approach the M.K.:mickey: Man i love that!!:thumbsup:

03-19-2007, 06:49 PM
This is cool...
For me it would be standing on the boat dock at FtW waiting for our first ride to the MK:thumbsup:

For DW it would be at the Living Sea at Epcot sitting in a clam mobile with Crush and Squirt singing "Big Blue World". She loves the turtles...

03-19-2007, 06:51 PM
Walking down MSUSA and Cinderella's Castle is in front of me.:cloud9:

03-19-2007, 07:48 PM
I am right infront of the Chinese Theater at the Disney-MGM Studios, just about to enter the Great Movie Ride. I really wish I was at the "World" right now :mickey:.

03-19-2007, 07:52 PM
I would only wish to be on the plane to Orlando, with all the anticipation of the trip!

I don't want my trip to end any sooner than it has too!

Okay, but if I have to pick a place it would be ANYWHERE!!!!!!!

THen after that, :beer: Germany!

03-20-2007, 11:42 AM
:covered: 3, 2, 1, and...:bolt:

:mickey: Here I am, it is morning, my favorite time of the day, and I'm taking a stroll around the home resort, which is Port Orleans Riverside, and I'm immersed in my surroundings as I hear every sound, notice every detail, and breath in the warm and dewey air as I plan my day at WDW!

Still over a year until our next trip!

03-21-2007, 09:08 AM
