My younger brother has autism and an intense love for Disney and always wanted to visit the parks. My parents did all the research and took all precautions to take us to Disney World, but he had a major meltdown the minute after we entered Magic Kingdom and we had to leave. He keeps talking about going back to Disney and I tell him someday, but I really want to yell at him that we’ll never go back because of him and our parents don’t want to waste anymore money on a vacation that will fail.
When I was six I went to Disney World and met Snow White. She said to me “Do you think the dwarfs and I could come to your house someday?” And I nodded excitedly, thinking they would actually come. For three years I literally waited, thinking they would come
I was just in Disney World and bought a Captain Marvel t-shirt (hated the movie, but she’s my favourite superhero, so…). Even though I’m a full grown adult, I got saluted by cast members who greeted me as ‘Captain’. It brought back memories of when I was 9 and went around Disneyland Paris with my Minnie Mouse dress. It made me feel special and like a kid again.
It’s my personal goal to one day visit all the major Disney Land/World parks all over the world. As someone who loves to travel, and as someone who loves Disney, visiting the parks are always a highlight in my trips, and it would be fun to compare and contrast the parks’ attractions.
Life is really hard right now. My mental health is pretty bad thanks to the environment I’m living in. Thinking about going back to Disney World gives me hope, honestly. Thinking about everything being okay, eating ice cream, and seeing all the magic around me keeps me going, because God knows I need the motivation to keep going.
I love living in Florida and I love going Disney, but I can’t stand the tourists and pass holders. They’re the rudest and most entitled group of people I have to deal with to the point where I wish their vacation is ruined
I always feel like such a bitch when I say “I go to Disney World every year” because I know people can’t afford it. I’d take all my friends to Disney if I could, and I feel bad for people who don’t have good experiences there. But whenever I bring up my vacations there, I feel like I’m being a braggy asshole.
When I was 15 my Dad and ex step-mom took me to Disney World for the first time. It ended up being a disappointing vacation because my dad wasn’t into Disney, I got dragged onto rides that I didn’t want to go on and we could only visit the park for half a day, so I wasn’t able see everything. Some day I hope to go back and get a redo on my Disney vacation.
