I know this may be hard to believe but I did not visit Disney World until I was thirty years old.  It can’t believe it has only been three years.  I can still remember the anticipation and excitement that I experienced in the weeks and days leading up to my very first visit.  Every day was torture waiting for that last sleep and wake up before we headed to Orlando.  I would catch myself counting down the days like a kid ready for Christmas day or Summer break.  I was admittedly more excited than my 4 and 5 year little girls at this point.

FINALLY!!! They day had arrived!  We were finally headed to Orlando!  I don’t remember much of the trip to the night before. I know we checked in that evening and I think I slept a minute or two, but I had butterflies.  The anticipation was almost more than i could bare.  After waiting for what seemed like an eternity for everyone to get ready we finally loaded up and headed to…. Disney World!!!

I will NEVER forget the feeling I had when we drove up the parking lot entrance.  I felt like I had won the lottery, lost 40 pounds, and just got a puppy, and we had not even made it to the park yet.  I am really surprised I did not squeal like little girl the first time I walked down Main Street at Magic Kingdom.

Fast forward to present day-  We have been pass holders for two years and we are getting ready to renew for our third.  We have been more times than I can remember and have had some really amazing experiences.  But one thing that never changes is the excitement and anticipation of going “Home”
