Long before some of our staffers ended up working at Babble, they had their first experiences with Disney as kids. From the clothes and costumes to the actual parks themselves, we have just about every aspect of Disney covered in these throwback shots. Click through 11 Disney photos of our crew below, with a few pics guest-starring Mr. Mickey Mouse himself. It seems we were destined for Disney right from the start! — Erin Lebar

Holy 1986! Me, my mom and sister somewhere in Disney World.

A Little Love for Aladdin 6 of 11
I'm just looking coy at Disney World in my super cool denim dress and Aladdin pin. I had a huge crush on Aladdin so I had a lot of Aladdin memorabilia.

Belles of the Ball 7 of 11
My sis Claire is on the left. Not just one of us could "be" Belle, nor could we take turns. Two costumes were very necessary.

Mickey and Minnie 8 of 11
Our parents thought they were being funny by dressing me and my brother, Tom, up in these (very warm) slippers and handmade costumes one year for Halloween. We weren't so enthused ...

Smiles All Around 9 of 11
This is one of the few smiley moments of my first trip to Disney World, as later that day Captain Hook came up to us and hooked my mom and started to pull her away. Not something a 5-year-old finds amusing! (We made up when I went back to the park at 21.)

Mickey and Friends 10 of 11
Well, this happened.
— Dara Pettinelli, Senior Manager, Editorial
Dancing Queen 11 of 11
My family always stops at the Germany Pavilion at Epcot. My killer dance moves (I'm the one in pink) haven't changed in 20 years — spinning around with arms flailing about. (ALSO: Please note my fannypack.)
