As Mother’s Day approaches, treasured memories of mom warm the heart like no other time of the year. And earlier today, Walt Disney World Ambassador Marilyn West grabbed our attention with a heartwarming memory of her own from a magical Disney visit with mom years ago!

Marilyn here! With Mother’s Day coming up, I wanted to share some memories of my mom and I enjoying @WaltDisneyWorld when I was younger! Snacking on delicious Disney treats is our favorite activity to do together — swipe to see proof that my mom and I started that tradition many years ago during my very first trip to Walt Disney World! I would love to see your Disney memories with a special mom in your life. I challenge my friends @magical_kinda_mama, fellow Cast Member @lisarmouse and the Disney Parks Moms Panelists #DisneyMP! Tag three of your friends to share theirs using #DisneyMagicMoments
With the uplifting photos, Marilyn also challenged her friends on Instagram to post a similar Disney memory of a special mom in their life – and we’re loving what’s been shared.
Disney memories with mom can span generations like with cast member Lisa Mendillo. Lisa accepted the challenge and posted a heartfelt photo with her mom as well as with her new daughter surrounded by balloons and happiness.
And this Mother’s Day, other members of our Disney Parks Moms Panel are sharing inspiring memories to mark the occasion. Along with heartfelt advice about making Disney vacation destinations more magical, Aena D, Tiffanie S, Samantha K, Nancy W, Donyell R and Shantel H are also sharing their fond memories with mom or as mom.
Now, it’s your turn! We’re excited to see more favorite Disney memories of a special mom in your life. Share your photo or video now on Instagram tagging #DisneyMagicMoments and challenge three friends of your own to show their favorite first Disney character images.
