  • Having visited Walt Disney World 6 times, we have many wonderful
    memories. On the first 2 visits we took our children and stayed
    at the Contemporary. It was at Christmas and nothing is more
    beautiful at Christmas than Disney. The next time we went it was
    with our children and their spouses. And the next two times it
    was our chilren, spouses and 4 grandchildren. If you’ve never seen the light in eyes of child or the smile on their face when
    they enter this magical world, you don’t know what you missing.
    We’ve always stayed in the resorts inside the park and if you go
    do the same, you want regret it. I am an old man, recouping
    from cancer and I may not get to go to Disney again, but I thank God for the memories and my wife and I continuously talk about our
    next trip to Disney with our grandchildren. Don’t count me out yet, I may yet see you again Mickey.
