Bringing Home Disney

During our last visit to WDW, Adam turned to me and said something along the lines of "I could visit the Magic Kingdom every day." He didn't say this in reference to our 4 days in the parks during that trip, he said that about life.

Of course, we can't be at the parks all the time, so now we get to find ways to bring the Magic home. One of our favorite treats that we always look forward to in the Parks has always been frozen Chocolate Covered Bananas. No, not the standard Mickey bars (though those are amazing). Adam looks forward to his frozen banana when we're planning our trips. Then one day, I saw something starting at me in the freezer section of the commissary - FROZEN CHOCOLATE COVERED BANANAS!!! It's only one small thing, but it made us happy. And they're delicious!

I've often joked that I want to retire to Celebration, FL and work at the Magic Kingdom. While we were at the parks, I often made conversation with the adult cast members; finding out if they like their jobs and liked working for Disney. They all sincerely that they loved working for Disney. One woman joked she was very happy to not work with some of her friends over at Universal Studios - but I think that's only because we were at WDW when the Wizarding World of Harry Potter opened up across the way.

Even if we end up in Central Florida for our retirement, we are many years away from that. So for now, we'll continue to find ways to bring the magic into our home.

  1. It's so true that WDW Cast Members seem to enjoy their jobs so much more than those at Disneyland. They really WANT to be there, where at Disneyland it's more typically "just a job." That's just something that makes your trip makes your trip even more magical!
