I was offered a trip to Disney World, in Florida, 2 years ago. Being a princess at heart, I was absolutely delighted! My husband… not so much! He’s never been there. In his mind, Disney was just another La Ronde, but in a much hotter climate.
Let me tell you, he changed his mind pretty darn fast! It didn’t take long, upon arrival, to notice that we were just in time for Star Wars Weekend. My husband is a Star Wars fanatic. The parades, the decor, the legos and all of the attractions related to this movie series excites him as much as receiving a brand new Aston Martin for Christmas.
I’ve no idea what he’s supposedly doing in this pic but just look at how happy he is!
We were very well prepared for our first day on-site. The MyDisneyExperience app was on our mobile phones, our backpack was filled to the brim with bottled water, and we had our bracelets and passes in hand. We definitely didn’t have enough time to do everything despite our careful preparations! There’s just so much to see, so much to do, so many pictures to take! You’ll become a kid again, even at the age of 22 (ok, ok, I’m 30), when you find yourself awestruck by the sheer size of Disney World.
Did you know that a minimum of 300,000 people visit Disney World’s 4 major theme parks (Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Epcot, Animal Kingdom) every day and yet the parks are spotless?! Disney World employs over 50,000 people to keep the site pristine, keep the magic alive, develop new rides, keep the various kiosques (food, beverages, souvenirs, etc.) well stocked, and to ensure that no child ever sees a mascot take his head off (so to speak).
Walt Disney World really isn’t “just” for 8 year olds. I’d venture to say that it’s even more fun for adults because we can choose what we want to do, we can walk faster, we have more stamina, and we can stop for a beer when we’re feeling slightly nauseous from all of the rides. I’d go back in a heartbeat!
Actually, life at my workplace is rather dismal… 32 people will be taking a guided tour of Disney Orlando, Universal Studios (including the Wizarding World of Harry Potter) and Legoland… and guess how many of those 32 people will be children? I want to say 0, but in reality, we’re all big kids at heart and every one of us DREAMS of visiting the larger-than-life universe of Disney.
PSSST… don’t worry… if you go to Disney with your spouse, you won’t be judged if you don’t have a child in tow, and you won’t be the only ones. My hubby and I spent more money on extravagant restaurants than a family of 4 spends on groceries for a week!
