        OK, you should be a writer! As I read I could see every moment clearly in my mind. I, like you, cry from start to finish. That show was amazing and really made you feel the old and new Disney at the same time. Bravo for a wonderful post!

          Wow, I agree you should be a writer! That was touching and yet hilarious at the same time and now I want to go to Disneyland and see it again.

          It's funny because reading that made me remember of a time two years ago, in January that my family went to Disneyland for three days. Now I had already seen Remember...but the rest of my family had not. I told them that it would be the most amazing fireworks display they had ever seen, but they were a bit leary and didn't believe me. Unfortunatly for the first two nights they were canceled (stupid flags!) and then finally on the last night, after staking our claim in front of the castle a mere two hours before hand (all the while having my mom complain as to why she was sitting on the cold hard ground freezing her butt off for two hours to watch just a firework show) Remember... began and of course blew their freakin' minds! Therefore proving my point to them that it is the best firework show that they will ever see! I will always get teary eyed when Walt says "To all who come to this happy place welcome!" and when Ariel says, "Oh I wish, I wish I could be part of their world", don't know why I do but those sayings and Tinkerbell flying across are the most magical moments in the show.

            One of the most magical times that I had at Disneyland, was not watching Remember from the Hub. I was walking along what I believe is called Big Thunder Trail. Julie Andrews had just began talking, and suddenly Tinker Bell is flying. She flew right over the trail, and I swear, I could have touched her. I continued walking around the back of Disneyland through Fantasyland, and on toward Tomorrowland. I could hear the fireworks, and some of the music. I wasn't really looking up. I was still amazed at seeing Tinker Bell fly so close to me. As I was leaving Tomorrowland and about to to enter the area of the Hub again, Tinker Bell flew a second time. Again, I saw her up close. It was a magical time. I had really missed the entire show. However, that was fine with me, because I saw Tinker Bell fly, not just once but twice. I felt that I could touch her. The green of her outfit still shines in my memory. I especially enjoyed LeAnn Rimes singing her song that magical night.

              Dang it, I'm getting misty-eyed just reading this and remembering it.

              haha Before the show started I was ready to cry. The first time I saw it, my friends decided to go sit in front of the castle an hour or so early to see it. Well, my friend and I didn't want to sit there for that long so we left them there while we went off to use our Fastpasses for Indy, and then take a few rides on Big Thunder. By the time we got back, the place was crowded! We couldn't find any place to stand, and we couldn't find our friends because there were too many people and this stupid rope that was put up since we had left. Scared of missing the show, we frantically wandered the area looking for a place to stand that was close enough to see the show without being obscured by trees or freakishly tall people. We finally found an empty place! There was one problem with our empty place though.....and I'm not quite sure how this happened.....but it turned out we were somehow in the queue for Buzz Lightyear! Anyway, I'm not really sure how we finally found a place. I learned my lesson though! Don't leave at the last minute no matter how cool Indy is.

                I hate the fireworks shows and make it a point to avoid them. But Dustysage and the gang convinced me to watch this when we met up last year and I LOVED IT!!! The best part was the Main Street Electrical parade, which got a lot of cheers. I had Goosebumps the whole time and it was very neat. I'm getting goosebumps now just remembering it. I wish I could see it again.

                  Me too. I started tearing up while reading it. Excellent job!

                      T-Jel, that's so nice of you to do that! For all of us, like myself, who have never had the pleasure of viewing the show, I thank you! :bow:

                        Wow, TJL!

                        This brought back memories of the first time I saw Remember. So wonderfully written - you are truly gifted.

                            :gladsad: TJL... I love you.

                            I... am one of those nerds, and proud of it... it's the part that I will *always* stop to watch no matter where I am [I was explaining our rotation to some new-hires at our attraction, and told them to hold on a second while the SW bit was over with].

                            This show always brings a tearful child-like gaze to my face, and always will. I don't know what's better, seeing Tink fly around the castle while Walt gives his speech, or being infront of IASW and watching the actual footage of it on the building.

                            In short: :bow:

                              Ahhh... I'm glad people like it. Thanks for all the nice words.

                              I was thinking about how it made me feel, and I talked to a woman who had never been to Disneyland before and saw the show... and she bawled and loved it too, without knowing all the little secrets to it.

                              Anyway, yeah.
