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).

You can tell how old this picture is by the fact that Spaceship Earth is still adorned with the “EPCOT” sign, along with the glove and wand.  While taking pictures of the twirling Tinkerbell topiary in the World Showcase Plaza, I realized that there was a unique photo opportunity – geosphere, monorail and Tink, all in one shot.  Unfortunately, every time the monorail came through, Tink was facing the wrong way!  I had to wait for countless monorails to go by but eventually I got the shot – and a sunburn from standing there so long!
