Flashback Friday Blog Hop! 1997 Trip Redux

For this week's Flashback Friday I am republishing part of one of my Magical Memories posts from before I had many followers (not that I have many now, although they are beloved, but I have some!). I figure most of you haven't read this yet.   I will try to have new content next week!

Be sure to stop by our Flashback Friday host, Magical Days with the Mouse, or click on the button below to hop along with us! Okay, everyone ready? Then here we goooooo!

Although I'd been to Disney World many, many times prior, the first time I really became a Disney-phile was in my freshman year of high school.  I was having a difficult time, so looking forward to the Disney trip served as the perfect distraction. We stayed at the Poly (per usual) and got to check out the parks during their 25th anniversary celebration.  I recently found some old pictures from that trip and thought I'd share them here. Enjoy!

Cinderella Castle as a birthday cake.
Given that it was just temporary, I don't think it's as bad as everyone likes to complain about.  It's whimsical!

Celebrating the 25th anniversary outside the MGM studios
(yeah I said MGM, that's what it was called back then!).

Hope you enjoyed!  Hop on to the next Stop!


  1. Awesome pictures, I was there that year too and it was so special. I love the Castle like that and your picture of it looks great...

  2. Oh man, I remember when they did that. I'm like you, I didn't have a problem with it because it was temporary, and I thought it was fun and festive. Great flashback!

  3. Great photos! We visited during the 25th anniversary celebration too. I liked the castle, I thought it was fun. :)

  4. Oh yea, I remember the cakecastle! It was pretty weird but knowing it was temporary wasn't too bad for us:)
    Like you I brought back a former flashback this week. I just had to share it once again. I'm glad you did, yours is a great pic!

  5. I was there for the cakecastle.. but have NO clue where the pictures are.. somewhere lost at my parents house!
