***RAK ALERT*** In honor of reaching 100 MouseWait points today, I have decided to do another RAK. Three Disney books (one for each MW digit) are up for grab this time: "The Hidden Magic of WDW", "2012 Birnbaum's Dining Guide", and "Cast Member Confidential: A Disneyfied Memoir". All you have to do to enter is share your favorite Disney memory!! Winner will be announced on Sunday, 8/26. Good luck!! :)

I don't have any of these so this would be great. I have so many magical memories but I think the best one really has nothing to do with our family except we were next in line for tigger and pooh and a family came up next to us in line that had two adult handicapped kids in wheel chairs and the CM said do you mind if we take them next. Of course I said absoulutly not. That time that we watched the characters react with the kids was absoulutly amazing. Me and their mom both stood side by side and cried tears of joy. My grandkids made comments afterward also and said how nice that was and how happy the kids were. I love Disney!!!!! - mmddgp  790.2 #8 11:47AM
What a touching story!! I would have balled like a baby!! :) - mrsincredible  1088.8 #6 12:29PM
Wow, that's awesome!! - DizneyGirl  890.5 #7 1:56PM
Love this story!!! I would've been crying too!! How wonderful that the grandkids got to experience the magic too! - BagGal  307.0 #25 4:53PM
You are so generous!!  Congrats on your big 100!  Tha's awesome!  It's been a great Disney week, huh?  Ressies to BOGR, 100 pts, AND best of all the double digit dance!  :)  Ok, so, please add me for your awesome RAK too. - BagGal  307.0 #25 4:44PM
Ooops, I wasn't done. :) Anyway, my fave Disney memory thus far is thanks to my mom!!! For her 65th birthday, she was going to have a huge birthday party dinner with lots of family and friends. Then, several months before her b-day, she called me to say that instead of her b-day dinner, she wanted to take us (my husband, my girls and me) to Disney World with her!!!! We had the best time ever! It was the first time for my girls and my hubby (I'd only been once as a kid), and it was amazing! So, we celebrated my mom's 65th b-day at Cinderella's Royal Table, and it was beautiful and magical for all 5 of us... all thanks to the best mom in the whole world... mine! :) - BagGal  307.0 #25 4:50PM
I know, right??? What a fab week!!!! - mrsincredible  1088.8 #6 3:10AM
I love that!! What a great mom you have!! - mrsincredible  1088.8 #6 3:11AM
If it's not too late, add me. BagGal told some of my story, my favorite Disney Memories revolve around watching my granddaughters faces on that 65th birthday,and 2 years ago. I show friends pictures of their joy,and say, "It's worth every penny" - lala03  73.3 #84 6:48PM
Hey, that's my mom! Guys, I'd like to introduce you to my mom... Lala03! :) I'm always talking about how great MW is, finally got her to join us! - BagGal  307.0 #25 8:44PM
Btw, thanks, Mrs. I! I think so too! ;) - BagGal  307.0 #25 8:46PM
Nice to meet you, BagGal's mom!!!!! We love BG!!! So glad you could join in the fun!! We have a blast in here!! Tell BG to tell you her soft soap idea... we are gonna make millions!! :) - mrsincredible  1088.8 #6 3:51AM
Hahahaha! Thanks Mrs.I! ❀ - BagGal  307.0 #25 7:19AM
Please add me :-) my favorite Disney memory is when my husband and i went on the disney cruise for our honeymoon. It was our first cruise ever. We didn't know what to expect at all. So as we were about to bored the ship we took a few pics and then before we even realized we were on the ship we hear " please welcome mr and mrs russo!" It took me by surprise and I started balling. Lol. - reedball  5.7 #377 7:50PM
How special!! I would have cried, too!! :) - mrsincredible  1088.8 #6 3:13AM
I remember my little 1 year old daughter watching the parade on main street for the very first time. She was clapping and smiling and really enjoying every moment even as a baby. That was in 2001. Please add me for Turkeylegs! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #20 2:15AM
Watching thru our children's eyes takes everything to a whole new level, doesn't it!! - mrsincredible  1088.8 #6 3:14AM
It really does! I realized that her joy was what I was enjoying more so than the parade itself! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #20 4:11AM
Any others interested? Winner will be announced tomorrow! :) - mrsincredible  1088.8 #6 3:22AM
Please add me!! My favorite memory was surprising my mother in law and kids with a trip last September. My father in law had just passed away suddenly and we thought it would be nice to get away. The look on her and the kids faces were priceless. Best trip hands down. - Ariel42  262.9 #30 11:21AM

I can't wait to go with all three of my boys together. It is so special when the gang is all there!! - mrsincredible  1088.8 #6 12:30PM
Please add me!!! Great RAK! One of my favorite memories I was 5ish and we were watching a show with the characters in it and I was chosen to go on stage. I was very nervous but it was so much fun. I danced with the characters while playing a drum. Then I sat on a stool and they sang and danced around me. It was great. Ok this was in the 80's so to date myself when I look at pics on top of bad clothes I had a new souvenir on. It was a green visor (plastic) and it had little lights that flashed. It ran on a 9 volt battery. Anyone remember these lolπŸ˜ƒ - Schramke  545.0 #15 12:13PM
Yes, I do remember those hats, lol, I think I had one!! Haha - mrsincredible  1088.8 #6 12:30PM
Lmbo!! I also had one of those visors!! I might still have it in my parents attic lol! - ccmom  187.5 #46 12:36PM
I remember those hats!! - DizneyGirl  890.5 #7 1:58PM
Please add me!  Best memory was when we took our youngest girls for the first time  (which started our annual trips), our middle daughter turned 5 the first day we were at Disney.  She had a make over at BBB, then enjoyed MK for the entire day, and road the monorail over to Kona Cafe where we had ordered a birthday cake and they entire restaurant sang Happy Birthday to her!  She had such a magical time!!  It's been tough to beat. - DizneyGirl  890.5 #7 12:22PM
So magical!! :) - mrsincredible  1088.8 #6 12:29PM
So sweet!! - Ariel42  262.9 #30 12:37PM
Oh, PLEASE add me...GREAT RAK, Mrs.I!! My favorite memory is taking my kids for their first time this April. They are 10 and 13 years old! The entire trip was magical...it was so special sharing their first time with them, as I never went as a child. Everything we did was so fun from riding the bus early in the morning, to spending 17 hours in the Magic Kingdom one day! (7am-12midnight!) - ncjal  278.8 #29 12:38PM
I never got to see it as a child either, so glad all of my boys will!! :) - mrsincredible  1088.8 #6 12:58PM

We have been back every w year since. Our next trip is this September and can't wait ! - shewsluvdisney  62.6 #93 4:24PM
Before my first trip in 2002 with work (held in the convention center at the GF), I thought the same thing!! Opened my eyes to a whole new world, been 9 times since!! If I could go every year, I would for sure!! - mrsincredible  1088.8 #6 3:08AM
Very cool RAK! I've said it before in previous posts but my fave Disney memory is my Dad going on all the roller coasters with his kids even though he despises them. He's my hero. πŸ‘πŸ’™ - Tinkerbell1265  442.0 #18 4:27PM
Aww, what a great Dad!! I love that! - BagGal  307.0 #25 4:55PM
That is so awesome!! My hubs is like that... not sure I'd be able to talk him into that, lol!! - mrsincredible  1088.8 #6 3:09AM
One of my favorite Disney memories is from my 25th birthday trip during Disney's 25th Anniversary. We were flying home after breakfast at Crystal Palace, but when we got to the gates before the park opened we were informed our passes ran out the day before and we didn't have a ticket to get in. A few tears later and all upset that my birthday breakfast was ruined and I didn't get to see Pooh, Tigger, and Piglet, a CM came over and handed my husband and me passes to get into the park so that my birthday wish came true. I will never forget the kindness shown to us that day, and my breakfast was magical and extra special. - MagicalFamily  65.6 #90 5:44PM
That's awesome!! - Ariel42  262.9 #30 6:16PM
That is the best 'magical moment' ever!!! - mrsincredible  1088.8 #6 3:11AM
My favorite memory is our first trip to WDW we were family of the day at EPCOT. It was an amazing experience!!! Love the books, congrats on joining the 100 club :). Please add me. - mzdisnee  559.5 #13 7:16PM
So awesome, I dream of being family of the day in one of the parks. What a special experience that is for the lucky chosen!! - mrsincredible  1088.8 #6 3:12AM
I loved reading all these stories! It's hard to pick one, but I think my favorite Disney memory is our first trip to WDW. We ate at Narcoosee's and could see the fireworks out the steamy window. Was something magical about it. Thanks for the RAK! Add me for Schramke! - goofygal  10449.0 #4 5:33AM
Thank you so much!! Your memory sounds magical, like it was the perfect night 😊 - Schramke  545.0 #15 5:37AM
That does sound magical!!! - mrsincredible  1088.8 #6 6:04AM
Add me !! My favorite memory is our trip in 2000 . It was my daughters 10th birthday . We did character breakfast , lunch & dinner . Just the look on her face from how special they made her feel , I'll never forget it !!!!! - skcanfield  549.5 #14 6:07AM
Disney DOES know how to make a celebration extra special!! Last Oct, we were just on Cloud 9 on our anniversary with all the special attention we received!! - mrsincredible  1088.8 #6 6:31AM
Please add me! Congratulations on the century mark!  This is a great RAK.  =)  My favorite Disney memory is going to the park for the first time with my husband.  He had never gone as a child and only agreed to the trip because he knew how much I wanted to go.  Well from the moment we got there, he was like a kid, loving every detail, character and attraction.  It meant a lot to me that I was able to share that with him and experience the happiness right alongside him.  Needless to say, I haven’t had to twist his arm to go back! - TheGrumpies  288.6 #961 3:16PM
I love it!! My hubs loves Mickey, too. I am bless to share the Disney love with him and not have to twist his arm when I want to go, too. :) - mrsincredible  1088.8 #6 3:58PM
I have many favorite memories at WDW, but the one I'd like to share is when my Grandfather took me into the tunnels under WDW. I thought I had the Coolest grandpa ever! - TangledNdisneY  324.7 #24 3:19PM
That IS cool!! Something so many will never experience. What a great memory!! - mrsincredible  1088.8 #6 3:58PM
Oh, that is AWESOME!! - BagGal  307.0 #25 8:47PM
Please add me, this is a great rak. I would have to say my best memory is of last august when my parents told me and my sister we were going to orlando to visit friends and family and we might not get into the parks. I was kind of bummed we were going all the way to orlando but possibly not even going to the parks. Little did I know I would wake up the next day and all that dissappointment would magicly vanish. When we woke up at my godparents house my parents said we were going to see a friend who happened to be a disney employee and maybe she could get us tickets - nickpryan13  5.0 #435 3:44PM
But instead they pulled into wilderness lodge and my eyes just lit up, we were going to be staying there for five days, park hopper, dining plan, and everything included. It was truly my most magical disney experience! - nickpryan13  5.0 #435 3:47PM
That's awesome!!! I love, love, love Disney surprises!! - mrsincredible  1088.8 #6 3:59PM
Please add me. My favorite memory is as a child, I lost my shoe between the Jungle Cruise boat and the dock. - Experiment869  178.0 #50 5:50PM
Oh no, haha!! - mrsincredible  1088.8 #6 6:37PM
Add me and my favorite memory is from this trip that just passed. Being with my family after a couple family losses and incidents it was nice to be together and share a happy memory together. My mom,dad, my two brothers, sister, sister in law and my niece all together to share some magic. Seing my nieces face meeting Mickey and Minnie on her first trip to Disney absolutely reminds you of all your feelings you had as a kid to see them. It was truley magical. I love.my family and my MW family - beachclubnut28  6.3 #355 5:51PM
I agree, I love seeing Disney through the eyes of my kids and other family members!! :) - mrsincredible  1088.8 #6 6:38PM
It was absolutely wonderful - beachclubnut28  6.3 #355 7:34PM
Great RAK! Add me please! My best memory was looking out the monorail and seeing my grandparents walking around EPCOT holding hands!(: - amandapanda3  39.3 #119 8:29AM
Awwww, sooo adorable!! - mrsincredible  1088.8 #6 2:34PM
Congrats on 100!!! To pick one favorite memory... My son's 1st trip last year. We were getting his Mickey ears embroidered and was wearing a stitch shirt. The cast members in the store were talking to him and so sweet to him. The castmember talked to him about stitch and then gave him his stitch pin. That is how we started my son's pin collection. : ) - DisneyLisa78  44.5 #112 5:46AM
Awww, that's awesome!! - mrsincredible  1088.8 #6 5:58AM
I don't have any of those either. Thanks for a great RAK! My favorite Disney memory was the first time I took my two children to Disneyland. I didn't have much money, so my brother and I drove to Disneyland stayed in and stayed in an inexpensive motel. Even though we were really watching our money, we had the best time! I love seeing my children's faces as they discovered Disneyland. - ally  509.0 #17 9:17AM
I can relate...the first time we took our oldest, we were SO tight on money - I felt super blessed to be there, so special!! - mrsincredible  1088.8 #6 2:59PM
