Maybe you just got back from Walt Disney World, and, of course, you had a great time. But you’re, perhaps, thinking “Now that I’ve been there, why would I return?”

Or, you are a frequent visitor, like me, and your co-workers, friends and even family ask “Why are you going there… again?”
For me, every trip to Walt Disney World, and even Disneyland is different.

For starters, depending on what time of year you go, there will be a different event going on. In the Spring, there is the Epcot International Flower and Garden Show, which is March 7th to May 20th this year.

Later in the year is the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival, September 28th-November 11th. At the same time that the Food and Wine Festival is going on, you can also go to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, select nights, September and October in the Magic Kingdom.

Then, there are a plethora of activities and events during the Holiday season, such as the Mickey Very Merry Christmas Party held select nights in November and December at the Magic Kingdom, Holidays Around the World and the Candlelight Processional at Epcot, and the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. In addition, many of the resorts are decked out in holiday finery. For a guide to the best times to revisit Disney World, please check out this article:

Another reason I return again and again, is the resorts. There are several options in each price range, value, moderate or deluxe. I have my preferences, but still, every now and again, I will get even more excited about a pending trip because we will be staying at a resort we’ve never stayed at before. Each resort has it’s own personality, dining choices, activities and amenities.
The thing I look forward to most of all, though, are the personal interactions I will inevitably have, be it with Cast Members, other guests, or the friends I’ve made from all over the country. I have made many, hopefully lifelong, friends through Disney.
Every trip is different, and the excitement and anticipation never wanes for me, and I hope the same can be said for you.
So why do I come back to Disney? Disney is home! And it ALWAYS feels good to come home.
