The summer after the fifth grade, my family went to Disney World for its 25th anniversary. I had so much fun that I honestly have wanted to go back ever since, but haven't been able to afford it. I later found out that the only reason we were able to go is because we took the inheritance money from my great-grandmother's passing and she told us to go somewhere nice.

Still, I have a great love of Disney - but am deeply saddened by the fact that everything's moving into CG now. I miss traditionally animated movies!

Disney World is so expensive. It's crazy. I have probably been 15 or 20 times. Think of all that money just spent on the tickets. Also, next time you go, you should check out the Ripley's Believe It or Not museum, one of the fun dinner theaters, and Universal Studios.

Universal (if you haven't been there) has a Back to the Future ride. And an Alfred Hitchcock show. I think I like Universal better than Disney. :)

That is A LOT of times, but then, you lived right there so it at least you didn't have to do the travel costs and hotel costs included for most of us.

Universal Hollywood is better than Orlando. ;) How about the Jurassic Park ride? Not sure if that's still there even, but it was cool. :)

I bet at least 4 people say Beauty and the Beast.

My favorite used to be Aladdin, but I think I watched it til I got sick of it.

It's funny because when I was little (probably 12 and younger) I couldn't stand any Disney movies because of all the darn SINGING! I would fast-forward through all the songs. Now I put a movie in just to watch the musical sequences. :-P

I could write a book about Disney memories! Last weekend my Grandmother and I were going through photo albums looking for Christmas pictures for a gift. Practically every other album was Disney World! haha. We were laughing about it. My Gm kept saying, "What year do you think this was, how old do you look here?".

From random old stuffs
From Florida - Disney World

I'll mention the 'Keys to the Kingdom' tour as the most recent best Disney experience. Very cool going in the exit for half the rides and being told certain things to look for in them also. How about the fact that Liberty Square has no indoor plumbing? Because there wasn't any during Revolutionary times. None of the buildings in Liberty Square have it, except for one, which happens to be halfway in Fronteirland. That is why the bathrooms are all the way in the back! Nifty.

Hard to choose but I finally went with Hunchback of Notre Dame for its darker feel and more mature themes (even if it still rips the story apart). Dinosaur would be a close second for also having a similar feel while actually being an orginal film :-P. I like many of the Disney films, though. ~smacks that list for daring to include Spirited Away in the list: that is NOT a Disney film, Disney just licensed and released! ~

Favorite Disney memory? I guess my mom running around trying to get me the Disney VHS tapes that had gone in the vault for Christmas, and having to pay some $30-40 each for them!

The whole "vault" thing is one of the reasons that I don't own very many Disney movies. I think it is really evil. I hope you got a good amount of use out of $40 VHS tapes that are going to be obsolete very soon here. :-/

I just remember enjoying so many of them as a kid and some of them, like finding nemo, that came out when I was older are great too! I guess I'm just a sucker for good animated movies

I spent Sunday nights of my youth watching The Wonderful World of Disney, and when I was older we had a VCR to tape all of the old movies. Sadly, they stopped playing them when I got older. :(

Lady and the Tramp will probably always be my favorite Disney movie. Bambi would be tied with first, but there's a caveat: I have only seen it once or twice. I had the record when I was a kid, and I played it until it turned white - and I memorized the whole thing. From beginning to end, songs included. I could prattle off the entirety of Bambi at a moment's notice to anyone who cared to listen.

Once, I started reciting it to a group of people in an elevator.

Lady and the Tramp is a close second for me, but NOTHING will ever top The Little Mermaid.

Favourite live action: Mary Poppins
Favourite Disney/Pixar: Monsters Inc.
Favourite live action with animation: Enchanted

I also once got lost in Typhoon Lagoon going around the lazy river. And when I was 3 I said I wanted to go on the Star Wars ride and as soon as it started proceeded to scream and cry, then refuse to go on any ride involving being in the dark, including it's a small world.
