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).

While shopping at IL BEL CRISTALLO, the perfume and crystal shop in the Italy section of EPCOT’s World Showcase, I happened to glance out one of the open doors at the right moment to witness this sweet little tableau.   I was quite taken with the tenderness of the harlequin CM and with the look of supreme contentment on the child’s face.  I have to believe they are related in some way – a parent and child, or perhaps siblings.  Now, six years later, I still feel lucky to have been present when love made itself so evident.
