Memory Monday

Taking a small break from memorabilia Monday, I thought I would share with you a memory - making today Memory Monday.

I've been scanning a lot of old photos recently onto the computer - creating digital copies of everything I can. It's been an experience, reliving holidays and adventures I'd almost forgotten about.

As I've said before, I don't usually share personal items on this blog, but I wanted to share this picture.


Taken in 1992, during our summer holiday, it was our 2nd trip to Orlando. And I remember how quiet the parks were back then, compared to today (going in the middle of July!). And I just love this picture - how peaceful it looks and how 'cool' I'm trying to act. And one of my favourite things? Spaceship Earth as I remember it from my youth. I can't wait to see it back to all it's 'naked' glory when I get out there later this year.

Wait, wait, wait, wait! Is it my imagination or is that a FANNY PACK?!?!

In all seriousness, Spaceship Earth, as I remember it from my childhood as well, looks fantastic again! Thanks for sharing the memory.

LOL We definitely don't call them 'fanny' packs - we call them bum bags. And yes, but they were all the fashion back in the 90s! All the posh tourists had them ;)

I agree, the parks seemed less crowded in early 90's. It is easy to miss thoes less crowded days.

How does a wee lass from Scotland become a Disneyphile?

I love the photo! My wife and I were there in late July 1992 for our honeymoon. Too bad we didn't run into you!

I have to admit, I had a Nike bum bag when we went.

Worse yet, I had the same one when we took the kids this past June to Walt Disney World! Some habits are hard to break!
