When I was a kid, my family used to place bets with each other while in the parks. We would bet each other on the most direct route to get from point A to point B. Who will arrive first? We would then break up into two groups and think of every shortcut to get from Space Mountain to Splash Mountain. Sometimes, we expanded this to park and resort hopping. What would be quicker - the bus or walking the International Gateway? The winner sometimes received a churro, but in most cases, we'd be happy for the bragging rights.
I knew all the ins and outs of Walt Disney World Resort before I hit high school. I ALWAYS know the closest restroom, store, ATM and refreshment stand; therefore, you may be shocked to know that one of my Disney obsessions is guide map collecting.
|Thank you SO MUCH to Beth at Pursuing the Magic for sharing her guide map collection with me!|
Do I need the maps? Nope. Never even pull them out at the park. But they are a terrific resource!
At the end of each trip, I take the same walk to the hotel lobby like I did at check-in (though admittedly sadder) and get a fresh set of maps. When I get home and create my photo album or scrap book, I create a folder in the back for all the maps. It is such a wonderful feeling to look and see what has changed throughout the years and what has remained the same.
As I always say, it's the Disney Circle of Life!
