Category Archives: Throwback Thursday
Four cousins in Old Key West! We had around 20 family members in Disney for this trip and we all got matching polo shirts. We are missing Chris in this picture and I think she had left for the California Grill already or was trying to figure out where her luggage was since Magical Express was taking forever!
YUM! The Naan bread and different salsas and dips are delicious at Sanaa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. Definitely my favorite Disney appetizer.
I believe this photo was taken in 1992 or 1993, but please chime in family members if you know the exact date. Although the photo is a bit blurry, here is a photo of my grandma, my aunt, and my mom standing in front of an old Disney Vacation Club vehicle at Old Key West (or as it was known then the Disney Vacation Club Resort? or something like that). I definitely prefer the old Disney Vacation Club logo with the mountains and Disney sun compared to the one they have been using the past few years with Mickey as a globe. This vehicle almost looks like it could go on a safari! How many people could fit in it?!
It certainly feels like Florida at school today with the temperature being the same as it is in Disney (a hot and humid 91 degrees). We also had a random afternoon thunderstorm here where it down poured for 15 minutes. Right before it rained, I was thinking about how it was just like Florida except for the afternoon thunderstorm and then it started raining. Thankfully, I was inside by then.
Good luck to all of the runners this weekend at the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend!
Throwback Thursday to 2012 when my aunt, sister, and I were all bundled up on Aunt Polly’s porch on Tom Sawyer’s Island. We went to Disney during the week of Thanksgiving and it was a little colder than when we usually visit in August! It was shocking not wearing shorts everyday during this trip and not having to apply large amounts of sunscreen. Also as a side note, I loved the purse that is pictured here with the Mickey Mouse outlines on it. Unfortunately, the Mickey outlines fell apart too soon.
Throwback Thursday to our first trip to New Fantasyland in 2012. My sister and I had bought (or actually our parents bought them for us) new Mickey Ears this trip because the ones from when we were young did not fit anymore. We waited an hour and a half to ride Ariel’s Undersea Adventure as it was in soft opening Thanksgiving week and experienced a few technical difficulties. It is a great ride…but probably won’t ever wait an hour and a half for it again.
