Welcome to the first stop aboard Magical Blograil Blue!
Enjoy the ride as we share our Disney Side.

My Disney Side

Have you revealed your Disney Side?

This post ended up being a lot harder than I thought it would be! My Disney Side is such a deep rooted part of me that I really don’t think of it as a side, it’s just who I am. I listen to Disney music, watch Disney Junior even though I don’t have kids, visit the parks at least four times a year, I have Disney posters, photos, and vinylmations all over my house, I have more Disney t-shirts than I care to admit, and I have a blog dedicated to all things Disney. But the Disney Side that is most important to me is the one that I only really get to enjoy in the parks.

My Disney Side

Drew wrote a post a few years ago about why we love visiting Walt Disney World so much. When I’m in the Disney Parks I have a feeling I rarely feel, I’m just like everyone else. I don’t have to worry about whether the transportation is accessible, if there is a bathroom I can use, if the resort room really accessible as the hotel thinks it is, can I get to a table easily in a restaurant? Those questions and a million more are already answered for me and the answer is YES! So if you see me in the parks, I’m kinda like this.

Best day ever!

At Disney I really do leave all of my worries behind so my care free side really gets to shine. We get to focus on just being happy, having fun, and acting like a couple of kids. My care free side makes funny faces with Peter Pan, conquers mountains, laughs with Donald Duck, decides it’s a good idea to get into a swinging gondola on Mickey’s Fun Wheel, and tries things I never thought I would.

    You’re so right! That ability to leave life’s ordinary concerns at the gates because you know that Disney has it all handled is what makes the parks such a special place for me too.

    I am so glad I got to meet you at the place that makes you smile!  I also agree I have no problem acting 5 years old there.

    As my daughter always says about WDW, the magic is REAL! That’s so evident in your Disney smile 🙂

    I love that you have completed a runDisney event as part of your #DisneySide.  That is one of my goals too! Great job.

    This is beautiful!!  I totally get it, but then, I don’t get it at the same time.  I’m so glad that Disney gives you that place where you can be you and you don’t have to worry or ask those questions!!  🙂

    This is just beautiful, Melissa!  I love that you get that feeling at Disney, and that it enables you to be and do so very much!  Your #DisneySide is awesome, if I do say so myself!

    I agree Melissa- it’s like breathing!!

  14. LoriKetcherside on January 23, 2014 at 7:30 am

    I love your Disney Side! 
    I’m also glad to know I’m not the only one who got confused trying to figure out what part of me wasn’t my #DisneySide.

  15. Mickey_MDOD on January 23, 2014 at 7:25 am

    I love it, Melissa!  It’s amazing how Disney — the magical world of Disney — can make all of us feel like the perfect person we are!  Thanks for sharing!
