  • If you could relive one moment from your Disney past...

    What would it be? Maybe a marriage proposal? Maybe a special birthday? Maybe an anniversary? Maybe a very special visit after a long time away......

    Do tell.

    Seeing Les Brown and His Band of Renown at the Plaza Gardens

    When my son leaned over to whisper in my ear during the Holiday fireworks "Momma, it's magic."

    Switch these.

    1965, My younger brother and I, so scared to go on that huge, fast, and scary Bobsled ride. I remember my Dad telling us how much fun we would have and how it really isn't that scary. Of course, how many kids believe the grownups, i.e. it will only hurt a little bit!! We braved the line, got on the ride (the bobsleds were a single sled in those days), with our Mom and Dad in the back seat of the sled. We laughed all the way down the mountain and wanted to burn all the rest of the "E" tickets on that ride alone.
    I always wondered why my Dad had this thing about Disneyland and took us whenever money and time allowed, now that I'm a Dad, I understand completely. My brother and I still laugh about it as if it happened yesterday.

    When I was in high school... back in the dark ages... our marching band marched at Disneyland. It was really amazing to be part of the show... performing for the people at Disneyland.

    For me...I would probably go to the opening day of Indiana Jones...Ride it when all the effects worked and I could see the Ice effect as well. I was too young and short so I couldn't ride it

    Favorite memories: riding the Skyway during the 25th anniversary party at 6:30 in the morning and watching the sun come up. Kissing a girl on Adventure Thru Innerspace. Watching my daughter scream with glee on Big Thunder. All precious.

    DisneyDaddy: good parents realize their mistakes and try to improve. The fact that it bugs you proves you're a good Dad. Don't stress, be happy and do your best.

    :yea: :bow: YES!!:bow: :yea:

    We'll have to do another one of those...

    Kids can be a lot more forgiving to us than we are to ourselves, in situations like this.

    Definitely keep going to make good memories.

    Mom fixed everything once we got to shore and I stood outside their washroom feeling as small as I have ever felt. We promised each other that there was a new rule and that there will be no more crying or shouting ever again at Disneyland.

    If I could relive that moment, I would make it right and not be haunted by that memory.

    She is 7 now and has been to Disneyland twice. She went again when she was 6 and as we were packing she told me she rememebered that ship where she had her accident. My soul just shrunk. I told her not to worry and we would not bring it up again. Maybe she was referring to the No crying rule or the no shouting rule, but I was so ashamed.

    Today we don;t speak of it. It's probably lost in her memories somewhere and I am too afraid to ask if she remembers the day her Daddy made her cry on the happiest place on earth.

    I relive it often. I am not sure I would change it because it shaped me into a mucg more compasionate and activily compassionate father but I still wish I didn;t need her to learn that lesson and I hope she will one day forgive me.
    Just keep giving her good memories of the place and I think all will be well. I'd be willing to bet that your daughter forgives you. I think you actually need to forgive yourself - otherwise you're just going to mentally torture yourself over this all the time and then YOU are not going to have fun at the Happiest Place on Earth.

    Let this incident be water under the bridge. When your daughter is older, talk to her about the incident and tell her that "Daddy is sorry for how he acted." I bet she would say it's ok with her.

    Perhaps if you were to take your daughter to the same spot and create a new and better memory you could make ammends with yourself and move on.As for favorite moments, I'd have to chose between:First trip with family went the Elctrical Parade was newPulling the all-nighter for the 30th, andWatching the snow fall from the edge of Main Street for the first time with my partner, now of seven years

    similar here

    the year we went for my birthday and got to see the aladdin dinner show, i was 5 and it was so much fun! alos, it was before my parents started to openly fight so we were a happy family with 2 little ones, you know. good times, good times.

    since the divorce, i've been twice, once with my mom, once with my dad, and i tell you it's just not the same anymore. i used to just sjile and sing and skip and dance just caus ei was there but i don't feel warm and fuzzy about the park any more.

    oh well, so is life.

    I would relive the time I met all my VMK friends. I stayed an extra day to meet them. We connected right away and the day was so much fun with everyone being so sweet and all my drinks at the lost bar were paid by my new friends! One of them even let me stay in their hotel room that night. So special.

I got into a nasty "fight" with a couple of girls over it (sigh, high school...) and well, I made up for the night by going back to Disneyland the next evening.
    on a similar note...i too would change what went on at grad night. my "friend" was a total wimp and a huge pill! she wouldn't go on anything that went too fast or had any kind of drop whatsoever! she wouldn't even go on pirates! the teachers were having more fun!!! she was not at all excited to be there and i was over the moon! i couldn't believe i was there and i was so excited! all she did was mope. if i could have gone back and changed it, i would have left her to her own devices and hung out with another group.

    however, there are a few things about the trip that i would love to relive. i ditched her the next day and had a blast hanging out in downtown disney! i would love to relive that day because i had so much fun shopping, taking in the sights, and eating my favorite lunch at the jazz kitchen. then our group went to medieval times and i sat across from and talked to this really cute guy! :love:

    I can't remember the date at all, but I have very strong, sweet memories of holding my first-ever boyfriend's hand for the first time on Haunted Mansion. It would be so fun (and probably funny) to go back & be a fly-on-the-wall for that day. I think we went on every slow ride possible, so we could hold hands...Peoplemover, Adventure through Inner Space, Skyway, etc. AWWWW!!! Young love! :love:

    May 5, 2005 was also a great day for me. It was the first day I ever spent at Disneyland alone. I saw Remember for the first time that day. It totally re-energized my love for Disneyland & pushed me from lurker to MC member.
