It was forty-two years ago today, that Disney World opened its doors to the Magic Kingdom in Orlando, Florida.
I happen to believe that Disney World is one of the most magical places on earth. Honestly – it’s ruined most other theme parks for me because I’m always comparing it to Disney.
I’ll never forget taking my kids to a regional (not Disney) theme park. They were so excited to meet one of the characters. (Hint: A big cat that has a yellow bird for a nemesis.) Anyway – I took one look at the white gloves that were an unsightly shade of gray, and the brownish, gray spots on the off-white (aka dirty-white) costume and was skeeved out. I wished I could’ve marched them in the opposite direction, but it was too late. The kids were already bee-lining it over to him. Before I knew it, that icky gray glove was patting my kids’ heads and my kids were hugging the dirty cat. I think I’m scarred for life.
Thank goodness we live less than eight hours away from Disney, so it’s an easy drive for us and we try to go every year. In fact, me and the fam just returned from our latest adventures at Disney World. Here’s a little glimpse into our Disney fun:
