Traci C. (NDM#118) (37 Posts)

Traci was born and raised in Ohio, but has been visiting Walt Disney World since she was 18 months old (in 1974)!! She has always had a special place in her heart for all things Disney, but especially loves Winnie the Pooh, Mickey Mouse, and her favorite princess - Cinderella. Traci spent her childhood visiting the Magic Kingdom for just one day every summer (her grandparents lived in Tampa, Fla.). It wasn't until 2003 that she finally was able to stay "on property" .. and now visits at least once a year (more if she's lucky). The family's favorite resort - Beach Club. The love of Disney runs deep in Traci's house - her daughters love all things Disney and are always looking for "hidden Mickeys" (and both been counted as NDKs). And her husband? Well, he's almost as Disney-obsessed as the girls. One of these days the family hopes to make the move south to be closer to The Mouse (and away from the cold, snowy Ohio winters).

One of my favorite things to do at EPCOT is grab a seat down by the lagoon at the cantina in Mexico.  Margarita in hand, I’m there to watch the sun go down.  The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin resorts loom iconically in the distance and become silhouetted against a dramatic backdrop of fiery orange that glistens golden off the water.  It sort of makes your soul ache a little just to look at it.

I’ve been concerned about the renovations that are being performed on the cantina.  The work is supposed to provide more seating but I’m hoping that doesn’t come at the price of the sunsets!  When I was in the World at the beginning of March, the construction area was completely obscured by those tall walls that bear signs declaring it’s all for our “future enjoyment”.  Well, I hope so – time will tell whether or not those prime sunset seats will still be available.
