    My husband and I are 74 snd DisneyWorld is my favorite vacation. Lost count of how many times we’ve been there with and without our kids now 50, 37, 35. Husband was in Navy in Long Beach during Vietnam and we went to DisneyLand all the time. We hope to take our 4 grandchildren to DisneyWorld before we are too old to do so. I love all things Mickey as do our kids and grandkids
