Do you ever look back on old family photos and just reminisce? I do that often and my oldest is only 8.
As I looked back through old photos, I noticed a very common trend that can be found not only in my own home, but all across our country. Our children have let Disney into their hearts, their imagination and their lives. Below are only a few instances in which Disney has been a part of my children’s lives whether it was a gift, a craft, clothing, playing dress up, having a Minnie themed birthday cake, enjoying a movie or spending time coloring.
Disney has been so influential that my oldest even made an impromptu craft below. She re-created the rose from Beauty and the Beast. I was simply amazed at her imagination and then realized that she has been influenced by the fantasy, the beauty and simply the idea.Do you recall that twinkle in your child’s eye when they see one of their favorite characters? It’s pure joy, happiness and satisfaction. I see it here in this picture I took of them with their favorite toys.
Disney is even magical in that truly ANY child can enjoy the full experience. A friend of mine visited Disney with her daughter who had been diagnosed with multiple food allergies. Here is her story:
Before going to Disney with her, I learned about the resources that they have available for food allergies. I was able to make our meal reservations for the trip online and specify my daughter’s allergies, but I was still wary of letting her eat food prepared by others, even though I had heard that Disney had a great reputation with working with food allergies. The day we were to arrive at Disney, I received a phone call from the Disney Nutrition Services confirming our dinner reservations for later that evening, and also going over my daughter’s allergies. I was so impressed by their thoroughness & felt confident that they would take care of my daughter. When we arrived to our dinner, everything was already noted for my daughter, and while the rest of us enjoyed a buffet dinner, my daughter was served heaping plates of safe foods that had been specially prepared for her. She ate like a queen!! It was amazing to see her joy at being able to eat things that she couldn’t normally have, and the size of her eyes as she took in the amount of “safe” food that was all HERS – it was heartwarming! The rest of the trip proved to be just as amazing in every restaurant we visited. It was the first time I felt comfortable and confident in letting her eat out, because at each location, the chef came out and personally consulted us on her allergies, and specially prepared her food. For most families, eating out is a nice treat & convenience … on this trip, it became just one more magical moment in our Disney experience. Disney truly is the happiest place on Earth!!
