The Grand Floridian
My first visit to Walt Disney World was Christmas of 1973. Walt Disney World was only a year old, and The Magic Kingdom was the only theme park. The Polynesian and Contemporary hotels were the only two choices of hotels on property. My family stayed at the Contemporary Hotel that year. As a teenager, I was very impressed that the monorail zoomed right through the lobby of the hotel. Over the years, I've been back to WDW too many times to count. We started taking our own children before they could walk (not smart) and continued to bring them yearly until after they left for college. When my daughter was in junior high, she decided she was going to work for Disney. She did a college internship at WDW and moved to Orlando the day after her college graduation 2 1/2 years ago. Now, we are here several times a year. I guess you could say we are a Disney family.
