When I Became a True Disney Addict

I've loved Disney since forever, basically.  As far back as I can remember, I've loved all things Disney.  I remember loving Disney when I thought "Walt Disney" was a place, not a person.  Not actually sure when I realized it was a person, but I remember not knowing (hey, as a child of the 80's, you don't come across many people named "Walt").

Then, when I started this blog, just over a year ago, and started researching even more, I started discovering all of the actual magic behind the scenes.

But, more importantly, I found what Walt's true intentions were and learned that he was, in my opinion, an absolute genius.  As a park goer, I never thought about what EPCOT meant or what it was meant to be.  I never looked at the details behind the Magic Kingdom.  To be truly honest, I still ran down Main Street, U.S.A. towards Space Mountain until our trip in 2009 when I was too pregnant to run!

What made me really and honestly love Disney was watching Walt explain his idea for EPCOT.  Not a theme park, but an Experimental Protype Community of Tomorrow.  The theme park, the Magic Kingdom, created to fund this amazing community of the future, this utopian society.

Don't believe me?  Take a look for yourself.  If you've got a half hour, watch all 3 parts, but if you've only got a few minutes now, try to check out part 1 of these incredible videos.  Plus, you get to really experience Walt Disney, which having been born in 1981, was sadly not a part of my lifetime!  Hope you enjoy and appreciate these as much as I do!
