Why do I love Disney? If I only had a dollar for each time someone asked me this question I surely could have retired by now. My answer to the question is long, complex, and has many parts to it, yet it is similar to asking "Why do you breathe?" You would think to yourself "Because I have to" and then laugh and wonder what idiot would even ask such a question......
Love of Disney for most of us starts during childhood. Dressing as your favorite princess, meeting her in person after watching all of her movies and memorizing her songs or dressings as your favorite Hero and practicing your special hero moves then grabbing his autograph during a trip to Walt Disney World or Disneyland with your family. All of that sparked your imagination and allowed you to dream, something Disney stands for.
Some of us may have not been lucky enough to take a Disney vacation as children but have worked hard and saved every penny as adults to travel there with our own children. Getting to see the look on your child's face when entering main street for the first time and seeing the castle can be absolutely priceless. Watching your children enjoy their time while on vacation and bonding as a family of your own is just truly amazing.
We love Disney movies, their characters, books, dolls, games and so much more! We love getting swept away in the stories and their happy endings. We find ourselves singing along to the songs even when the kids are not around! There are not many people who can say they have not sang "Let It Go" at least once this year.
For me, personally, Disney is allowing me to live a dream, my dream, as an adult doing something I have wanted to do my whole entire life. Disney not only allows me to enjoy myself as a guest when I travel to different Disney destinations, but as a travel planner who creates the magic for my clients who either are already in love with Disney like I am or who are traveling on a Disney vacation for the first time and just do not know how much they love it yet. Disney gives people like me an opportunity to create magical memories for other families and allows me to live my dream by doing it. I had a dream, I was able to live it, and Disney has provided me the ability to do so. I loved Disney as a child and I love Disney now as an adult. I feel blessed and thankful that I have Disney in my life. It is a part of me, the optimistic, dreamer, inspired part of me. Why do you love Disney?
