I have been a disneyholic since my fist trip when I was 10 way back in 1983. Have been back 4 time since and dream of the day I can return. I do believe in fairies.

10 years old in 1983
43 in 2002 We moved to ca in 2000. I cried every Disney visit since. I'm getter better now. The first 5 years something would always make me cry. I balled my eyes out at my 1st parade - Marciamcmouse  34.6 #4947 4:42PM
20 years old year 2000. I had entered in every competition that you could win a trip to Disneyland since I was about 10. I never won but had managed to save up enough money by the time I was 20. - aussiekate  164.9 #2340 4:00AM
Aw so cute. - dumbbunny  625.3 #270 5:24AM
1970, I was 5. It was the best day, except I got burned by some man's cigarette while crammed in at the curb for the parade on Main Street. - earthgrl26  195.1 #1926 10:50PM
aww. no good. Thank goodness there are areas - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  3952.1 #24 10:59PM
I was 5. Very memorable. My favorite part was the parade and meeting Pinocchio ❀ - princessb5  164.3 #2347 11:01PM

Make her feel at home and walk on the left hand side of the pathway.
Go to the Adventureland and spend the whole day just there. Dole whip for breakfast, Bangle BBQ, for lunch. Indy, Tree house and tiki room for fun and top it all off with the best attraction in the park, The Jungle Cruise!!! - JungleBum  1013.1 #146 9:57PM

Sounds DREAMY to me, Baloo! ::whispers:: I love Adventureland! - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  3952.1 #24 2:41PM
Visit the Disneyland website for park hours, get there early to have as much time as you can, & check food review on the food tab. Most importantly have fun. - SafariSkewerJessica  1211.9 #109 9:55PM
Thanks guys! She's from Australia so I think a normal guide will do although maybe well give her a Japanese one make her figure out what it says as a joke. :) I don't know if they do it anymore but I remember they used to have random guests as the head of the parade.. I'd love if we could make that happen... Anyone know how to do it and if they still do? - karimcclure  3.8 #22198 1:49PM

I started dating my wife in the line of star tours back in 1990 when I was seventeen when she came over to the states us as a family friend. Yes I really love star tours. When we got to take our kids over there I told them the story and that if it wasn't for Disneyland they wouldn't be here.

Awww. What a sweet story! Do you live over here now? - MeridaFan  3261.1 #27 10:05AM
Awwwwww! How romantic! Where was your wife visiting from? Australia? - Duchess_SMK  5617.3 #14 10:24AM
No we still live in Australia. I have tried many times to convince her that we should move but she just won't be in it. - AussiePirateKing  4.7 #16532 10:31AM
On a visit to the park with my mom and dad in 1987 (I was 6), we rode this for the first time. Apparently it was so realistic, I was convinced that we had landed on the moon of Endor and as we left the attraction I very quickly (albeit calmly) asked "How are we going to get back to our car?" My dad loves to tell that story to this day. - FunOnABun  19.3 #6395 8:58AM
That's a cute story. Great memory! - MeridaFan  3261.1 #27 10:02AM
What a special memory! Disney magic always impresses me. Thank you for sharing that with us! - Duchess_SMK  5617.3 #14 10:22AM
We were at the Disneyland and it was the late afternoon when people started to gather in front of Star Tours (it wasn't open yet). We lucked out and got to be a part of its soft opening. It was a fun memory. - ElectricMayhemMom  807.7 #188 8:39PM
As always... Love your Day in Disney posts. Thank you! I miss all the old Tomorrow Land attractions but really like the ones also! The new Star Tours is great!!! - Boundin  510.1 #353 8:52PM

Yes true if I knew what she was wearing would help. But I am here at home in Australia and she gets to visit my happy place. Very teary eyed at the moment.

Welcome. Just joined not long ago myself. Good to see fellow Aussies loving Disneyland. Enjoy your trip
Welcome to the lounge, try to keep some of the Disney excitement a secret until you get there. It's more fun finding out everything while you are there than before you leave. P.S. I'm from Australia as well. - Nicholas-M  326.0 #662 4:34AM
Welcome! I'm excited for you and your family. December is so beautiful in the parks. I'm really looking forward to seeing what they do with Cars Land for the holidays. - VeloMouseGirl  549.8 #309 4:41AM
I hadn't thought that they might decorate cars land. Interesting... - Nicholas-M  326.0 #662 4:44AM
Me either until just now. Something else to look forward to. :o) - VeloMouseGirl  549.8 #309 4:49AM
by the way we hope to see alot of MW family the girls cant wait to do some RAKs when where there,they want to show the Aussie love for our fellow mates in the USA - davisgang  5.2 #15027 5:45PM
My tip is to wake up early, do tons of rides (no wait!) until lunch. Eat lunch, then go to you hotel to let your girls take a nap. At 3 or 4 P.M., go back to the park and ride until closing! That way there will be no frustrating waits, grumpy princesses, and you can fully enjoy the experience - bunnyforce5  5.1 #15427 5:55PM
welcome!!! we're aiming to be there the weekend of dec. 7-9 ourselves, so we'll try to meet up! - ministrychick77  277.7 #944 6:48PM

I would actually ditch autopia and extend toontown into some more actual rides like a virtual animated rollercoaster.
Lol, well, I understand that Autopia is fun for kids and nostalgic for Tomorrowland, but I spend 2.5 hours a day in my car commuting in real life, so when I go on vacation, I'm not going to drive or sit in traffic if it's not necessary. :) - Spoonful_O_Sugar  526.8 #336 12:06PM
