I miss the old song "Making Memories" so much! I walk around singing it all the time I take pictures. "Making memories, making memories, taking pictures is making memories. Capturing little pieces of time, making them yours and making them mine,,,"

I also miss "Tomorrow's Child". My kids are now grown and my grandsons are now tomorrow's children. Ah...music!

Those who recall Mr. Toad. Do you recall the really bad Day-Glo-Colors of Snow White (or was it Peter Pan) back then. Long before anything like it is now.

My secrets -

* Never had a dole whip
* On disboards all day while at work
* check LINEs from work (why, I don't know)
* Went to HS when it was MGM and had no ST, TSMM, ToT or RnR. But, also no crowds
* made my DD stay up to watch Wishes with me. She is not a whiny kid, but she did it for me and was asleep in the car before we left the parking lot!

Yes! I remember!

Does anyone remember a ride that was in Tomorrowland and it was about flying? I think it was sponsored by an airline? It was a dark ride and there was a point where a swirling light would shine from above. My shameful secret is as a teenager I stood up on the ride at that point and got yelled at by the PA system to remain seated. I probably did it to impress my friends. I feel really guilty about it even now!

It might be Delta Dreamflight.

I have actually never been on it, but I just read the Imagineering Guide to MK and they mentioned all the rides that were in Buzz Lightyear's spot before.

It was If You Had Wings. Sponsored by Eastern Airlines.

I should have known that between DISers and Wikipedia the answer would come out - you are both correct. Delta Dreamflight replaced If You Had Wings.
Based on the years operating, my memory and the scene of my shameful secret must have been Delta Dreamflight (1989 to 1996 according to Wikipedia). That would have been my teen years.
Thanks for your help!!!

Hi, everyone! Love this thread! It made me decide to actually register.

I have silver sequined mouse ears...and I will wear them to the MK on May 2nd and 3rd. My DH doesn't know this yet.

When our 3- and 4-yr old grandsons join us at the MK in May, I'm bringing a clear plastic bag, a diaper, and a can of root beer for the stroller.

Our grandsons won't be staying with us for the whole vacation.

I have a job selling sterling silver jewelry in people's homes to pay for our DVC membership. But I'm not ashamed of that!

We bought an annual pass so we can add on Tables in Wonderland for the food and drink discounts.

When I'm not physically in DW, I take mental vacations there.

We drive to DW so we don't have to take the shuttle buses to the parks.

I took a photo of two animals that kind of look like hogs from our balcony at the AKL. They were busy, um, makin' bacon.

I miss Bonnie Appetite.

My DH and I wish the MK served alcoholic beverages.

We dislike parents letting children taking up space on the barstools at the Tune-In Lounge.

We don't like it when people use strollers and scooters as battering rams.

We've never had a really good view of Illuminations.

We can do without the lengthy pre-show at the Universe of Energy. We're over it already...just bring on the dinosaurs!

We think Innoventions East and West are wasted space.

I'd love for Soarin' to add other locations to the film in addition to California.

When my DH had a meltdown in Epcot while I was shopping at MouseGears, I guided him and our party directly to the tequila bar in Mexico. After a flight, he was magically in a great mood! And I have the before and after pictures to prove it.

A lot of people feel like they're home when they see Cinderella's Castle. I feel like I'm home when I see Spaceship Earth at Epcot all lit up at night.

Welcome! And you and I are very, very alike
I feel most at home at Epcot, and have said the exact same thing about SSE.
But, never a good view of Illuminations? The insanity!

I love your post....sounds like us. However, have you tried Sum of all Thrills at Innovations West yet?? Fun!!! I'm "required" to do Smarter Planet but that's a 41 year old work story for another time.

We also discuss constantly that there should be another Soarin film other than California! Certainly, I vote NY .. well... because I live there!!!

Yes, I could go to Epcot every day! We have ADR's for lunch at the Rose and Crown and dinner at the Biergarten on May 4. Another shameful secret: so many restaurants; so little time to eat at all of them.

Where do you like to be for a great view of Illuminations? We're going to stake out our place an hour ahead of time...talk about insanity. But a necessary one!

Haven't been to Sum --- please tell me what I'm missing out on and we'll give it a try!

Yes, we vote New York for Soarin' too. The varied sights and geography would lend itself well to the experience! I can see us hang-gliding over Manhattan and Niagara Falls right now. Also, what about Alaska? And Texas?

I guess another shameful secret could be "The Things We Are Required to Do at Disney," LOL! A Smarter Planet for you? We'll see what our grandsons dream up for us. : )

=) Here's the description...we chose to design a roller coaster! You can make a "mild" ride if you get motion sickness.

SUM OF ALL THRILLS
This new attraction allows Guests to design their own thrill ride. Presented by Raytheon. The entire family will enjoy this ride. A short video shows the importance of math, science and engineering when designing a thrill ride. Your group is escorted to your personal video display where you have the ability to design your own, it could be a mild bobsled track to a wild jet. You are urged to test your design to see if it is fast enough for the design elements. If you are sensitive to motion sickness you might want to sit this ride out. They provide a locker while you are on the simulator for your cameras, purse, loose fitting shoes. If you have a problem with heights be aware you are on the end of a robot arm about 10 feet off the ground. Finally you are seated in a simulator pod where you get to experience the ride you have created. Each pod holds 2 people. There is a height requirement of 54 inches if you design a ride with any inversions.

Yum!!
We've tried a lot of places, but you can't go wrong in the area sort of between Italy and US, to the side of the American Gardens theater. No matter where you go, just watch out for trees- there are lots of spots that seem to be great, but trees above you may block your view.

I love looking at Disney wedding photos on disneyweddingblog.com! A hopelessly single spinster can dream, can't she?
