I've vacationed at Disney World multiple times. Technically, my first time was when my mom was pregnant with me; she vacationed there with my dad, DisneyPedia's Sierra and her parents (including her mom who was pregnant too). I love singing Disney's music, and Epcot is my favorite vacation spot. I'd love to visit Disneyland. I'll share with you my Disney memories, trends, and cool trivia.
