The 1997 Toy Story Parade ~ Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop

Focused on the Magic
Today I am joining in the Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop hosted by Focused on the Magic with what some may call "vintage" Disney.

Before having children, my husband and I took a trip to Walt Disney World during the month of May in 1997 for our friends' wedding.  One of my favorite things from this trip was the Toy Story Parade at Disney MGM Studios (now Disney's Hollywood Studios).    I really miss these movie themed parades.  The Toy Story one was really fun.  My kids are huge fans of these characters, so I hope one day, Disney will bring this one back (though I am sure they will not!).

If you haven't seen this parade, there is a great video on You Tube, well there are several, but I found one uploaded by Disneyworld144 from 1997.



Make sure you head over to 
to see everyone's May Calendar Shots.  This is a great way to bring a little Disney into your day as you stroll through this virtual photo album!

I loved these parades. It is such a fun way to bring the movies to life in the parks. They should do more of these! :-)

LOL! As I round the corner to my 40th birthday, I'll just say, time is more than flying by! :-)

It was so fun to see Slinky and all the characters walking around. The barrel of monkeys was quite entertaining too! :-)
