  • For me it’s the characters like Elsa and Anna to the likes of Donald Duck & Mad Hatter. My summertime favorite was when I saw my friend Cinderella who I haven’t seen sends Christmas time. U see I’m an AP holder and I go there alot and I have met friends with alot of the characters and one day I when to the Royal Hall and the first Princess I happen to see was my friend Cinderella I about fated when I saw her cause it has been so long send I have seen her. I was so excited to see her.

  • Magical Fireworks. I look forward to this show every year. There is something truly special is the music that stirs my emotions. From the *boom boom boom* of the first notes, it sends a chill down my back – I don’t know why. And I also love the crowd reactions when Dumbo and Tinkerbell fly over the castle. I have a feeling Magical will not return next year for Disneyland’s 60th. Sad.

  • For the Fourth of July, my wife and I brought a friend to Disneyland who was about to ship out for a tour in Afghanistan. (We’d never been to Disneyland on the 4th before.) The flag retreat in Main Street, with the Marine marching band, was wonderful! We all got really choked up. Our friend is due to come back to the states before next summer, and we’re taking her for the 4th of July again–it might be our new tradition.

  • The smell of the pine trees on Big Thunder Trail–this summer while listening to (and watching!) our finally returned, awesomely updated Big Thunder Mountain Railroad!
