    The Citadel. Is that the huge castle looking place on the left side of the freeway going south?

    If so, yeah, the kids know we are only a few minutes away at that point and start getting ready to get out and enjoy what's in store for them for the next few days...
    ( I can hear the seatbelts unclicking at that point too).

    That's funny, I get the "i gotta pee" jitters around the citadel, after sitting in all that lovely traffic for miles and miles and miles.....

    It was always seeing space mountain at the end of the parking lot and the monorail passing by above. The other thing was seeing the matterhorn from the freeway, I would get SO EXCITED! I don't anymore, but that's just because I'm older.

    Yes, the billboards on the freeway "Come home"
    Then the exit for Disneyland Drive, which means not only am I soclose to Dl but I'm soclose to being off the 5!

    Stepping on main street, hearing the music, then seeing the castle in the distance. When I was a kid, that always gave me tears of joy, still kind of does.

    Ooh it was ALL about seeing the Matterhorn from the 57 freeway! Good stuff! Still thrills me after all these years! Like a beacon in the night!

    It is the most Wonderful thing when you start to see Biilboards with Disneyland on them. I realize I'm that much closer after driving 400 miles. It is nice once I see the Monorail go by and Hollywood Tower glowing in the night. It is a welcome sight to go..aaaahhh (exhales)

    hehe GA- we did the same thing- when they had the old "Happiest Place on Earth" sign up, seeing that did it for me. After working there, I didn't get as excited anymore, but I think taking the Ball Road exit and making that left turn into the lane that says "Mickey and Friends Parking Structure" is as good as it gets anymore.

    Well when I was younger I lived in Arizona, and we usually drove to Disneyland at night. So by the time we got there it was very late at night, sure I was exhausted. But I just had to see the Disneyland sign for it to be official that I was there.

    For me it was the freeway exit...DISNEYLAND. We had made it! It's almost like driving to a barbecue and smelling wondeful foods as you drive in. You could just FEEL the magic, Disneyland was so overflowing with it.

    Yay we're here!!

    When you when to Disneyland when you were young. What was the thing that made you most exited to see when you got there or close to it.

    Mine, seeing the Mattahorn from the five freeway. I would get so exited and get my secont wind (after our 7 hour drive). that was by far the thing that made it official, we where at Disneyland.
