Magic Moments - Disney Blog Hop

Hi everybody!! It's Thursday so that means it's Disney Blog Hop day hosted by Lisa at Babes in Disneyland and co-hosted this week by my friend Manda of Manda's Disney Blog.  Welcome to anyone joining the hop for the first time and Welcome Back to everyone who has visited before. I really appreciate all of you stopping by.

This weeks theme is Magic Moments. I try to be a glass half full kind of girl, and find magic in life's little moments. Having Dakota want to sit down and watch a Disney movie with me, or flipping through the channels to see that Monster's Inc. is on Stars (there's something special about finding it on TV and not watching the DVD weird I know).

Mike is not a huge Disney fan, we are going to Walt Disney World for me and I am well aware of that. It's such a small thing, but having him ask about Disney restaurants or say something about wanting to ride Peter Pan's Flight are magical moments for me.

Reading Disney books to my kids when they were younger was really magical for me. They loved the pictures and the stories, even though they had every video Disney ever produced, something about the books and reading them together was so special. To this day Ashley & Dakota love to read, I attribute it to the Disney books we read when they were small. Now Ashley is reading the stories to Lexi, and it looks like I am going to have another grandbaby to read to in February.

Actual Walt Disney World magic moments, I think my most magical moment was seeing the Walt Disney World sign for the first time. There is something so magical about seeing it and knowing you are actually there. My palms were sweating and my heart began to beat a little faster, there was even a tear in my eye. I hope it's just as exciting this time around, and somehow I think it will be. Another magical moment was seeing Main Street for the first time, we were going to breakfast reservations at Crystal Palace and it almost seemed as though we were the only people there. I think it was like you went back to a time when life was a whole lot simpler. It's amazing how you forget the rest of the world even exists when you are there.

I hope you will all take the time to try to find a little magic in everyday!  You all make my days more magical, I'm glad I have so many new Disney friends.  I hope each one of you has a Magical Day!!

    I love the little moments you've mentioned. I'm in the same boat with my hubby. He enjoys it when we're there, but he doesn't quite get my "little obsession" :-)

  4. Hi Bookgirl! Thanks for stopping by. Somehow I think seeing the sign makes all seem "real".

    Birdy, I haven't been able to see Ash & Lexi since January 10th when I dropped them off at the ATL airport on their way to Korea. Hopefully I will be able to spend more time with the next baby during his/her first year. They will be back in the states in August!! They are going to be stationed at Ft. Campbell KY.

  5. Great magic moments! I love many of the little moments you enjoy too! There is something so magical about seeing the sign as you enter. Main Street in the morning is another super magical time for me too.
    Thanks so much for sharing:)

  6. I agree with you on making a "magical moment" every day. That's exactly how I get through until my next Disney "fix"! Congrats on your future grandbaby!

  7. The Mrs. I really do try to find a little magic in every day. I am very excited about my new little one (due date is 2/19/12).

  8. Deb, seeing Main Street for the first time, especially without a huge crowd, gave me chill bumps. I cannot wait to walk down it again!!

  9. I love it!! Such sweet moments in the every day!! :) great take on the topic.
