    Default Disney World Turns 50 & INTERCOT Reflects

    As Walt Disney World turns 50, many of us are taking time to reflect on what it means to us - but for me, the words that comes to mind are FAMILY and FRIENDS. From the moment I stepped foot in the Magic Kingdom for the first time in 1974, to visiting EPCOT opening year in 1982, I was forever changed.


    My life is full of so many wonderful memories because of the time spent there and the people I've met as a result. To my parents and specifically my Dad - the master of the AAA TripTik and Mobil Travel Guide - thank you for teaching me to always put family first - and to make "magic" a part of my everyday life. And to my wife, Stacey thanks for putting up with the Disney fanatic that lives inside me.


    While WDW turns a half century old today, we at INTERCOT celebrate 24 years online in a few weeks and next year - will turn a quarter century old. For those who have been with us the whole ride - thank you - and to those new to the INTERnet Community Of Tomorrow, we look forward to seeing you real soon.

    PS. Below are the earliest "digital camera" pics I could find today circa 1988 - things weren't exactly "high res" then.

    Great thoughts Jon! My first trip was September 1982 just before Epcot opened, but I've been a fan ever since. I remember being amazed on that first trip and feeling like we truly were transported into a different world. 39 years later lots has changed between our lives, technology and the world. Despite all the criticisms, We still think its a very special place. We'll be back with new adventures and new faces for many years to come!

    Default Beautiful Thoughts

    Thank you for the beautiful thoughts and pictures, John. My time on INTERCOT which I shared with my beautiful son who is no longer with us was such an incredibly special time in my life - as were my annual family trips which I still cannot believe I was so blessed to be able to take.

    While I watch the ABC Disney special tonight, I reflect on not only the incredible Disney World trips I was able to adventure upon, but also all of the amazing INTERCOT friends I met along the way. Love to all that I miss each day on INTERCOT that I developed such touching and amazing relationships with!

    Let's not forget that Epcot turned 39 on 10/1. Hopefully they will have finished the re-imagining of Future World by the 40th next year. Just got back from a visit. Very disappointed with all of the construction walls.

    Well, this is one I could make plans for. It will be in the middle of my (soon to be activated) AP (grandfathered Platinum Annual Pass, so ALL old benefits are still available!) and is in a time frame that I would 'normally' visit!!!
