My husband and I fell in love with Disney World on our honeymoon and now have two daughters raised as Disney-obsessed kids! When asked why I love Disney, my immediate response is the atmosphere, it’s magical! I have yet to find another destination where I feel so welcomed. Writing about Disney just brings it full circle. I now get to be a part of sharing in the magic.
