What Disney means to you...
Ok, so I know this might seem silly-- but as I read all these posts and see the love and (let's be honest here) just plain out obsession for Disney, I just wonder what some of the not so obvious reasons behind all of our love for Disney is?
For example, I think I feel such a love for Disney World because my Dad loved it so much and he has passed away since. We weren't the family that had like Disney figurines all over our house or anything, but the happiness my Dad showed when he talked about Disney is something I'll always remember. He was a musician and he loved the Disney music especially-- he bought the "Music of the Parks" CD and would play it on our outside speakers as we spent summers in the backyard.
My Dad passed away when I was 18 in 2003. I think the parks are just special to me because they hold such happy memories of my Dad. Does that make me crazy? Does anyone else have a similar story? It just makes me feel comforted to read about the Disney parks on these boards because I know they are continuing to bring joy to so many people, just like they did to my Dad. Make sense? LOL.
