When we were down in Disney, we took an evening to visit some of the places I only see in my mind. I finally have pictures of those places.
I'm going to take you on a virtual tour of places I spent my free time while I was part of the college program in 1995.
In my previous post, I wrote about visiting Vista Way. When I was there, there wasn't much within walking distance. Now there is a lot around there. (Wish I got a picture of how much it has developed. I've left some thing pictures to take next time I visit Disney.)
I would take the Mears transportation system to Publix to grocery shop. Once one of my friends and I mini golfed at a local minature golf course and then went to Publix to get food so I could cook a meal when we got back
We might have gone past the place we mini golfed but I'm not sure. I don't have pictures of the place but I do have a picture of a sign of Publix that might have been the one I shopped at.
The one place I spent a lot of time at was Downtown Disney. It was close and accessible from where I lived. I would shop there, watch movies, and spent evenings.
The Disney Christmas was one place I shopped while down there. Before I left to go home, I bought some ornaments from that store.
The World of Disney was another place I shopped. When we were there on our vacation, we shopped there. I found a great saddle bag that fit my water bottle and my big camera. It was the best deal at $20. I carry it everywhere now.
Pleasure Island was free on a certain night of the week if you were part of the International College Program or the College Program. Even though I was 20 when I was down there, I still took advantage of that deal.
I ate at Planet Hollywood once. I also have a shirt that is from Planet Hollywood that I occasionally.
Finally I would go to this AMC movie theater. I spent an awful lot of time watching movies. Some of the movies were Powder, Moonlight and Valentino, and Get Shorty. Actually I fell asleep during Get Shorty. I had watched another movie right before I "ran" into my French roommate, Celine. She had a free ticket and I decided to go see Get Shorty. It ended up boring me that I ended up falling asleep.
Thank you, Hubby for allowing me to take a walk through my memories. He made plans for our first day that allowed me to revisit places I remember fondly. I was able to get pictures that I never had. Now I have pictures to share with my future grandchildren. I know my future grandchildren will tire of these stories but those four months helped shape me to be the person I am.
