When I first heard the topic for this month’s loop, I wasn’t sure I could write much! But after looking through pictures, sorting through scrapbooks and talking to my mom, we were able to piece our first trip together.
My first trip to Walt Disney World was in March of 1983. It was spring break week. At that time my family consisted of my mom, dad, brother (4) and myself (8). We traveled by car from Huntsville, Alabama to Orlando, pulling a pop up camper behind us! None of us can remember where we camped but we know it was not Fort Wilderness. It was some KOA campsite in the area. We drove to the parks (Magic Kingdom and Epcot) each day.
The one tangible thing I found during my scavenger hunt from the WDW trip of 1983 was a bag from Epcot. Apparently we bought something rather small, like a postcard or two, to fit in this bag- or else I begged the store cast member to give me one! I’m not sure why I thought I should save an Epcot bag, but now I’m glad I did!
Here is the map of our Magical Blogorail should you happen to have to make a stop along the way and want to reboard:
