Is Disney Just For Kids ?
By Chris Neilson
Disney is great for anyone and for all ages, whether you're a toddler or an old wrinkly !!! (I refuse to say which category I personally fall into, although it's rapidly edging towards the latter !).
But I digress"
Undoubtedly it is every kids dream to visit Disney World in Florida. And why not? It is the best known theme park in the world, and according to Disney themselves "the most magical place on earth".
Now whilst this may seem like a sweeping statement, there is an astonishing amount of truth in it. Because what Disney have done is to create a wonderland for all ages.
Of course, you would expect the children to be drawn to the larger than life characters who appear throughout the parks, and indeed there are ample opportunities for Meet & Greet sessions with their favourites, but amazingly, adults too are drawn into this world of glamour, fun and smiles, and as a result seemingly shed their inhibitions and return to a childlike state of awe and wonder.
And even if you are of that rare breed that never shed their cool adult exterior, I defy any parent not to be moved watching their children's faces the first time their eyes fall upon Cinderella Castle at the heart of the Magic Kingdom. Indeed, I have heard many reports of mums and dads literally being moved to tears by the reaction of their children at Disney World". For a child, their expectations and dreams are all contained within this magical place, and as Disney casts it's spell over them, they as kids, and you, as parents, will not be disappointed.
Within the vast acreage of Disney World there is something for everyone to enjoy. But the great thing about Disney is it's ability to bring families closer together, to interact with each other, to share good times and create memories that will stay in your heart forever.
Walt's original dream of a "family park is, without doubt, an unrivalled success, thanks to the dedication of thousands of cast members who attend to your every need during your visit. You are made to feel special, wanted and appreciated all at the same time, and let's face it, a little bit of pampering goes a long, long way !
So my advice would be to take the kids, take the teenagers, take grandma and grandpa, take auntie Ethel too in fact take anyone you like, because at the end of the day, each of you will exit a Disney park, feeling fulfilled, happy and uplifted. And is it really "the most magical place on earth? As Mickey himself would say "You betcha !"
