I’m a Disney freak. Sue me. I have been all my life. People ask me all the time what I, a grown woman, love so much about it. I think it goes without saying. There’s something extremely powerful and magical about having an imagination. Do I honestly believe in magic, fairy tales, and wishing on stars? No. But how fun is it, to momentarily enter a world that does? Whether you’re watching a movie or visiting the parks, I find it breathtaking to enter a world of imagination. Doesn’t everyone love Disney?
Almost all of my most favorite memories have been made at Disneyland or Disneyworld. When I was a toddler, I had a HUGE Lion King obsession. My mom says we went to see the movie more than 5 times in theatres, and once it was out on video I would rewind it the second it was over and start it again. I know every young child had a movie like that, mine was The Lion King. I slept with a simba stuffed animal until the day I got married. (I also have a simba tattoo on my ankle, which is actually my favorite of all my tattoos) One of my very first memories is being at Disneyland watching The Festival of The Lion King parade. As a kid, you honestly believe that the people in those giant suits are the real deal, that your favorite characters from the movie are actually right in front of you. And what an incredible experience for a child! And it was incredible for me. I’ve been in love with Disneyland ever since.
I have amazing memories over the years with friends and family spending incredible days in the parks.
And of course, going to Disneyworld for the first time with my sisters
And lets not forget I got ENGAGED there!
Can you blame me for being a little obsessed?
