Photo Flashback! Grandparents

Here at Growing Up Disney, we say we are "three generations taking on the World."  And presently, that is true.  Our Disney vacations are three generation gatherings and we are all having fun introducing my girls to the Mouse.  However, in the circle of life, the individuals making up those three generations have changed over time.  This photo hangs in my kitchen and it's one of my favorites of my mom's parents.  They came to visit me during my college program in 1997.  I stayed with them and my parents at the Polynesian, hence Granny's flower.  (Note: just because a room CAN sleep 5 doesn't mean it SHOULD.)  We had such a good time on that visit.  I remember having lots of fun letting Granny use my Cast Member Christmas discount on the sly.  My grandparents loved to travel and their idea of vacation was loading up their large conversion van and driving for two weeks seeing national parks and other "rocks and trees".  They fully supported my parents' decision to buy into the Disney Vacation Club but their way of staying at Disney was a little different.  While the rest of us love to settle in to the familiar digs at Old Key West, my grandparents enjoyed switching resorts every couple of days.

***Stopping this now.  I'm tearing up.  How much fun would it be to have 4 generations?  Tink is named after this grandmother and reminds me of her all the time.  Seriously, can't type for the tears.***

My dad's parents visited Walt Disney World too.  Here's a post from DisneyDad showing his family in Adventureland in 1971.

  1. I had a tear in my eye when I read this too. Granny would have enjoyed being part of FOUR generations taking on the World.
