One of my favorite things about Disney Parks is the magic you can find around every corner. Whether you’re proudly displaying that “1stVisit” button, or celebrating your 101st visit, there is always something new and innovative to immerse you in the story and spark your imagination.
The most important tip I like to share about Disney is to slow down and soak in the magic! There are countless unforgettable moments waiting for you if you are willing to take the time to see them. We’ve been blessed with Disney magic on every visit – whether the pixie dust comes from Disney or from the memories we make together.
Although my first visit to a Disney Park wasn’t until I married a Disney fanatic, our family has made many trips as our children grew. We welcomed the new millennium at Epcot, and have celebrated birthdays, graduations, and anniversaries at Walt Disney World. We’ve chaperoned school trips and finished runDisney’s Coast to Coast Challenge. My daughter even had a Disney wedding!
We’ve discovered the Disney magic isn’t limited to Florida. When my son won a Disney sweepstakes, we made our first trip to Disneyland. Since then, we’ve returned several times and have adored discovering the charm and history of Walt’s park. My husband and I even did a Castle to Castle trip in one day – Cinderella Castle at Walt Disney World in the morning, then hopped a plane and saw Sleeping Beauty Castle that same evening! And a few years ago we loved having the entire family join us on a Disney Cruise.
As empty nesters now, sharing the Disney magic with our grandchildren has become our new obsession! There have been first haircuts, Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique makeovers, and pirate cruises. For over three decades we’ve been blessed to create unforgettable memories, and I hope our tips will help you create magical Disney moments with your family, too.
