My Disney Side - Magical Blogorail Red

Welcome to those of you joining me from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 3rd stop on our Magical Blogorail.

My Disney Side...



According to Disney have a Happily-Ever-After Disney Side, and I can't argue with that too much.  
  • I am a connoisseur of Disney Stories.
  • I do know them by heart - From "Once Upon A Time" to "Happily Ever After".
  • For me all of the characters "live" at Disney.  
Honestly, I don't get to visit the parks as much as I would like to.  My Disney Side gravitates much more to the history of Disney, as well as the movies and television.  I am admittedly a sap who likes stories of good winning over evil and true love always prevailing in the end.

I love reading stories of Walt's life, I will Google his name occasionally just to see if I see something new - I actually saw a picture of him yesterday I hadn't seen before. He is such an inspirational person for me, I love his outlook on life - not to mention his creative talent, but his devotion to his family is one of my favorite things about him. Here's my favorite Walt quote:
"Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, and dreams are forever."

You already know I have a Crafty Disney Side and love to make Disney crafts and throw Disney themed parties. They are always in the back of my mind, I am always thinking of my next project or Disney Party Board.  Admittedly, every project isn't exactly what I expected, and every party board isn't as popular as I had hoped; but they are some of my favorite things to do for Disney Donna Kay. Which one of my Disney parties would I be the most likely to throw for myself?

Once Upon A Time

When we do make it to Walt Disney World there are a few things that are "must dos" for us.  We love breakfast at the Crystal Palace, we usually have reservations before Magic Kingdom opens but I have promised  Mike no early morning wake up calls next trip. so we will visit Pooh and his friends a little later next time.  We always eat at Rainforest Cafe, its a fun atmosphere and our food has always been great. We also always save our snack credits for a trip to Goofy's Candy Company for lots of treats to take home, and while in Downtown Disney shopping for a new Disney Christmas ornament is a must.  On our last trip we rode Soarin' for the first time and it is definitely a new favorite and has been added to the "must do" list, but the number 1 "must do" on our list:

Peter Pan's Flight

I've enjoyed sharing part of my Disne Side with you today.  I am still finding new Disney things to love every day, and love having friends who share my Disney obsession.

Thank you for joining me today. Your next stop on the Magical Blogorail Loop is 400 Miles to Disneyland.


Here is the map of our Magical Blogorail should you happen to have to make a stop along the way and want to reboard:

  3. Aw, thanks for sharing your Disney Side. I think that I speak for most Disney fans when I say that we don't get there as often as we like - but cool facts, crafts and history keeps us going!

  8. I am always discovering new aspects of my Disney Side as well! Seeing how much you enjoy reading about Walt, there's a great biography you should get. It's titled Walt Disney: The Triumph of the American Imagination, by Neal Gabler. He was such an amazing man, and I'm so thankful he followed his dreams!

    1. Me too Deb!! I think the wake up call is the main reason I always make early morning breakfast reservations. Shhh, don't tell the hubby...

  16. I am Happily-Ever-After too! (No surprise that we tested the same way. :D) Your storytelling (especially about Walt and his life), your Disney crafts, and your Disney party boards always let your special Disney Side shine through. You are a Disney gem!!
