First published 3 1/2 years ago, this tally now stands at nearly 51 years. Every post written since April of 2011 remains relevant in my heart; my Disney Side for all the World to see!
Begin at the beginning…. I’m so very excited to join the Disney Blog Hop this particular week, because the theme calls to the very reason I began blogging- my Disney connections, my Walt ‘roots”. If you spotted my Wordless Wednesday item from yesterday, “Proof That Disney Memories DO Last a Lifetime…” you can guess how long and deep those roots truly are. My father worked at the 1964 World’s Fair, and my family received a sneak peak at the pavilions before the Fair opened; “it’s a small world”, Progressland, Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln, and the Great Skyway sowed the seeds for a lifetime love affair. We read, studied and watched Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color weekly TV series to learn more about the fabled “Florida Project”. What a surprise! Our first trip to Walt Disney World was in the park’s ninth month, and we have averaged two trips every year since. Each family rite of passage has had Walt Disney World as its backdrop.
That’s me in August of 1972- boy, those Mickey balloons have come a long way…
I was so intrigued by their content that I’ve been a fan ever since:
(And, to my point, thank you Babes in Disneyland for sponsoring the Disney Blog Hop :D)
