  Magical Memories

I've posted this magical moment before but I just had to share it again, it's that magical for me.
just let his AS disabilities go and stepped up all by himself for his very first pin trade in 2000. The Boardwalk greeter was so kind and patient with him. I could here him talking to her quietly.  We had discussed pin trading often, picked out a few pins to trade and he had watched his brother trade many times on previous trips. I guess all the preparation worked.  That was a magical moment!

Here's another magical memory for you. This picture is only a representation of the actual experience since my camera batteries died and I don't have a picture from it.
One night we were headed to Epcot for Illuminations. Rushing from the Contemporary platform I asked the operator if we'd make it to Epcot in time to see Illuminations. The CM just shrugged. He showed us to the second or third car, all by ourselves. The monorail ride was quiet and seemed slower than usual. Just as we passed in front of Space Ship Earth the monorail glided to a stop. I immediately thought it was broken and that we'd be stuck there for awhile, high up in the air with the World Showcase on one side and Space Ship Earth on the other. I remember saying to DH, we are going to miss the whole thing because something is wrong with the monorail.

Just then the fireworks started. All of us sat there in shock and awe as we watched Illuminations perched high above the World Showcase.

    How cool that you stopped on the monorail to watch Illuminations!! How long did you stay before the monorail went into the station? Truly magical! :-)

    I love this theme and I'm looking forward to reading everyone's magical memories! That must have been an incredible view of the fireworks but I love the story about your son's pin trading experience - it's always so amazing to see a child step beyond his/her comfort zone - Disney can definitely be a place where magic happens!

  3. If you got to stay on the monorail all the way through Illuminations, then that's becoming one of my magical memories. What an ultra-cool place to watch from!

  4. Those are some seriously magical memories! Brava!!

  5. I love hearing stories about Disney melting away disabilities for magical moments. I know we have lived these as well. So amazing to witness and capture. Adore the view you had from the monorail as well.

  6. I love those stories. :)

    That had to have been cool to watch Illuminations from there!! I love the story of your son and his first pin trade. Such a sweet experience. :)

  11. What great memories and magical moments for sure. Thanks for sharing with us and hosting!!
