The most magical place on EARTH is celebrating 45 years today! It opened its gated on October 1, 1971 and it’s opening was just as big as you could imagine. It’s had to imagine that they could do all that back in those days but the dedication parade just the beginning of what Walt Disney World intends to do, make your days magical!
I have been going to the Magic Kingdom since I was tiny. It has changed A LOT, heck it has changed in the last 6 years, but one things for sure, it’s never short on magic. As cliché as it sounds, I have grown a lot at Magic Kingdom. There I have learned about my strengths, and gotten over my fears. I have learned to chase after my dreams and that is where I learned my infamous quote: NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE.
That is where I decided to run my first half marathon for an animal charity. It is where I did my first marathon and where I did the goofy challenge. It is always where I go when I need a pick me up, a little extra magic if you will 😉 Having chronic pain and going through these new stages of battle are making my life really tough but going to Walt Disney World will always make me smile.
Sometimes I make only make it as far as the entrance as the Magic Kingdom, but that is OK. I will sit there and just enjoy the parade or just give myself time and see. The cast members will come and check up on me and offer some assistance. But I don’t get down, it’s hard to be down and upset at the most magical place on Earth!
So today I join in celebrating Magic Kingdom because it has brought a lot of happiness and unforgettable memories with family and friends. It is more than just a theme park to me, it is a place where dreams REALLY do come true.
And of course, lets not forget that today EPCOT celebrates 34 YEARS today!!!!! Another GREAT place of wonder, journey and imagination!
