As the final minutes of 2009 tick away, I wanted to take a moment and share with you my top 10 Disney moments for 2009.
And here they are:
10. Expanding my involvement in the Disney community to now include writing for Celebrations Magazine and working with the WDW Radio Show.
9. Seeing Disney's return to 2-D hand drawn animation in The Princess and the Frog.
8. Spending Thanksgiving at Walt Disney World. It's always such a treat to experience the holidays at WDW.
7. Attending MagicMeets in August. Never before have I been in a place where everyone was such huge Disney fans. To think that two pieces of my photography together sold for more than $600 to benefit the Disney World Trivia Dream Team!! That was such a huge thrill for me!
6. Being named the Biggest Disney Fan -- look for so much more about this in 2010!!!
5. Covering (remotely), the announcement of the Fantasyland expansion and Star Tours 2 at the D23 Expo. It was a fast and furious time gathering and posting different images and information. It reminded me of my old news days.
4. Spending literally days in front of a computer watching Lou Mongello's live coverage of the D23 Expo. I consider it an honor to be called a "Box Person."
3. Becoming a D23 Charter Member. While I haven't personally had the chance to take part in different events (I'm going to do everything I can to be at the 2010 D23 Expo), I've very much enjoyed being a D23 member and all the magazines, official blog and more that D23 has created.
2. With all the blog, D23 activity and other work, I've made so many new Disney friends that I feel truly blessed to be a part of the online Disney community. I look forward to making even new friends in the coming year.
1. Writing this blog and sharing my thoughts and experiences with you. I have really enjoyed writing this blog and I hope you've enjoyed reading it. Look for more to come in 2010!
As for what 2010 will bring -- I am looking forward to so many Disney-related events!! These include:
Many, many more blog posts here on DisneyDaddy.
More articles in Celebrations Magazine and WDW Radio.
Running in the 2010 WDW Half Marathon.
The Biggest Disney Fan trip and all the amazing experiences that are planned -- best of all, I get to share these experiences with you!
... and so much more!!
2010 is going to be an outstanding year-- so let's get started!
Have a happy and safe new year!
