  1. Great list! I think you covered it all. I especially love the random smell Mine is the hallways at Animal Kingdom Lodge. I swear it is a smell of wood and chocolate.

    1. Thanks, Mary! Isn't it funny, the strange things we associate with WDW?

    2. YES! the smell of the Poly lobby. The Poly hallways also used to have a certain smell but I think they switched cleaners over the years and now it is gone. If they could bottle those scents I would buy a gallon of each!

    3. That's the stuff that they should make into air fresheners! Not turkey legs! :-D

  2. What a great collection of photos. More than half of your selections match our choices as well; particularly the first one of Old Key West. Mary Ann and I plan on staying there for the first time our next trip the World. Nice story.

    1. Thanks, Bruce! And thanks for coming up with a fun topic. I hope you enjoy Old Key West!!

  3. I agree with you on so many of these favorites! What a fabulous list! I never tire of seeing pictures of your wedding!

    1. Thanks, Heidi! I'm sure I mention the wedding too often, but it was SOOO fabulous! (There I go again...)

  4. Love the pictures. Of course my favorite "things" at WDW has been having Tink and Minnie there to share it with.

    Now why am I hearing Julie Andrews singing.....

    1. I wanted to add Julie Andrews to the list but I ran out of time. Guess there is always an edit...

      And yes, Tink and Minnie are the best things at WDW!

  5. What a great list! Your family has so many wonderful Disney moments, thanks for sharing them with us!! Your Disney Wedding picture is so beautiful!!

  6. Holy cow... this is a FANTASTIC post! I loved it! And I've never, ever seen anything your amazing & gorgeous wedding picture!! Wow. Just wow. ;)

    1. Thanks Tami! I guess most of my wedding posts are from earlier in the blogging days. Might have to bring some of those stories back out. Disney Weddings does an amazing job!

  7. That is a great list of favorites!! I love the way you showed it. You've made me super excited to stay at OKW!
