I met my husband because we both work at Disneyland and we are now expecting a baby. My whole life has been hoping for that Disney happy ending and I actually got to have it. Our favorite movie is Peter Pan and we go to meet him and Wendy as often as possible because they made our dreams come true. Disney magic IS real, whatever age you are, wherever you may come from.
I grew up with the Disneyland parks all my life, while my partner had little to no exposure to Disney in general. She’s perfectly fine with me being a Disney girl and I’m perfectly fine with her not having much interest in it, but I fear that the first time I take her to Disneyland she’s not going to like it at all. It feels selfish of me I know but I would love it if we both had fun at the parks.
I found out my boyfriend wants to propose to me at DisneyWorld someday. As
much as I love Disney, I don’t want the proposal to be public or for any of the wedding to be Disney themed. Even though we did meet at Disneyland.
I’ve been depressed lately, but to help I’d look at anything Disneyland related to remind me that my annual Disneyland trip is November. I was on my way home from San Diego and when I saw a small view of Disney California Adventures, for the first time in weeks, I felt so happy. I almost started crying, just seeing a small peek of DCA, even for five seconds, was enough to make me happy.
Lion King and Zootopia were my last favorite movies and in a way lost the magic of Disney. 3 years ago I went to Disneyland just for the experience but I found the magic again! Just by watching the parade I saw Simba in the pride rock and had tears in my eyes, I was so happy and felt like a kid again! I was 32 years old, I also saw Nick and Judy! Best day ever!
I miss Disneyland even though it will probably end up with someone making choices for me again.I wish I could go by myself instead of having to wait until someone invites me. I mean I’m 25 years old and my mom won’t let me go unless someone comes with me, and since I don’t have anyone that’s likes Disneyland as much as me, I can’t go. Part of me wishes I could do what Elsa did and run away, but obviously I won’t.
My fiancée and I want to get married at Disney because that’s where we got engaged and it was the best holiday of my life. Even though lots of adults get married at Disneyland, I saw tweets about how childish and stupid it was and loads of people agreed. Of course w’ere not doing for peer approval but I don’t understand why they felt it necessary to voice harsh and negative opinions about something that doesn’t even concern them. They put themselves in other peoples narratives and it really annoyed me.
I’m going to WDW in the winter and an opportunity for me to go to Disneyland just came about, I’m so exited but I can’t help but feel guilty. When I tell people I’m going to Disneyland they always ask “why? you’re already going to Disney world” and a few of my friends have even made ‘rich kid’ jokes. I am in no way rich, my family’s always been just above poor, it’s just that I’ve been really lucky this year. I kind of feel like now I’m just being greedy taking two trips when others can’t.
Disneyland is my happy place. I got a ten day pass over Christmas and had so much fun. I haven’t been that happy since then. I cried so much when it was my last day there.
Despite all the arguments my family gets into and all the disagreements and bad feelings and emotional trauma, Disney is always the one thing that manages to keep us all grounded. We’ve been going to Disneyland since I was 6 weeks old, so I’ve been visiting as long as I can remember. This little bit of happiness and joy always makes any difference of opinion among us more bearable since there’s always that one thing we can talk about.
