Favorite Disney Memory?

Hi everyone!
Let me go ahead and say I am a complete Disney fanatic! When I'm sitting at work I read blogs about other people's vacation and stuff like that(don't tell the boss man ) so my question is what is y'all's favorite memory from your disney vacation???
Mine is hands down the time I got to be a part of Captain Jacks Pirate Tutorial! About a month ago we went to Disney World(this was my 5th trip there) and it was the first time I saw captain jack there. When I saw him he was half way through his show and my family was rushing to get to some ride so I didn't get to watch it but I made it a point to see it before my vacation was over. So a few days later my mom and I sat out there and waited for a show to start and when he came out I was literally star struck(I know, I know it's not really Johnny Depp). So when he asked who wanted to join his crew I of course raised my hand without hesitation and when he saw that I was the only 'pretty much' adult person that was raising her hand he winked at me(I really thought I was going to die). As I was watching all the kids run up on stage he pointed at me and told me to come up. I was so surprised I started blushing but of course I had to go up there. And at the end of the show when everybody gets off the stage he makes his rounds through the crowd so when he was doing that he came over and grabbed my hand and thanked me for joining his crew(by this point I really thought I was going to faint). Sorry this ended up being so long but I get so excited every time I think about it I can't help but ramble. So does anyone else have a magical experience that makes their heart pitter-patter every time they think about it???

Other than watching my DGD's during their first trips to DW (PRICELESS) MY favorite memory is this:



DH and younger DD took a trip to the northeast that year so I joined other DD, her family and her mother-in-law at DW. We'd all attended the party that night but the rest of the group "deserted me" so I was left to wonder the park alone. Was right before park closing and I was making one last walk through Fantasyland when I saw Tigger & Piglet getting ready to "call it a night". Piglet is my best friends FAVORITE Disney character and I just HAD to have a picture taken with him for her. I explained to them how I was "all alone in the park and I missed my BFF and that she LOVED Piglet, etc."; they started clowning around for the Photopass Photographer and the next thing I knew Tigger was pulling me one way and Piglet another and all three of us just about ended up on the ground in a "huge Halloween free for all"! A very special moment for me and my friend LOVED the picture!

Captain Hook spies Tinkerbell

On my first trip with husband and daughter (age 4) she was dressed as Tinkerbell. During the afternoon parade at MK she was laughing and waving at every character. Smee spotted her and went to Captain Hook and pointed at her and Hook came right up over to her and sort of waved his hook at her. She laughed and it just touched my hear.
