My family first went to Orlando in December 2001, shortly after 9/11. It was a very strange time but getting to Disney and Universal brought us away from reality, it brought a joy and happiness that had been horribly lost just two months before. Right then I decided we would make this a family tradition. December in Orlando. A time for joy and happiness. My video is my proof of that. Enjoy!

Great video. We have gone three years in a row and it's great seeing how my kids have grown in three short years. Thanks for sharing :)

Ladies and Gentlemen, we now have a new leader...that was so fun to watch, touching, well-assembled. You've got a great looking family!

Amazing video. My favorite as of now. And the Donkey talking bit reminded me of when he was singing Baby last month....

I friend of mine was at Universal / IOA about a week after 9/11. The live in Florida and drove of course. According to him, the parks seemed like they were abandoned. Every ride was a walk-on and he guessed there may have been 100 people in each park.

I live in the glide path of Midway airport and the approach pattern for O'Hare, it was very strange not to see a single commercial aircraft for days. All we would see is an occasional goverment helicopter and F-16's circling the city and suburbs.

Great video, by the way. This one has my vote as well.

Awesome video! My favorite part was when the children were on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority when they were really young and then you cut to a scene on the exact same ride a decade later....Great stuff.

Keep this wonderful tradition going and continue to capture your memories on tape for the next 10 years and beyond!

I'm bumping this up since it's simply fantastic and needs to be seen by everyone interested in theme park magic.
