Happy birthday to my most favorite place in the entire world. I’m so glad that the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World exists–I can truly say it’s changed my life for the better. Because of my visits to Disney World, and, subsequently, the Magic Kingdom, my love for all things magical has just grown over the years. It’s grown so much, in fact, that I decided to try and be a cast member a couple years ago. I had come to love the Disney magic so much that I decided that I wanted to take a chance and try to be something that I knew could bring a little more happiness into this world. Now, in just a few short months, I’ll get to live out that dream and live just minutes away from my beloved Castle. Isn’t it crazy how life works sometimes?
None of this would have happened if I had never seen that castle or heard the classic music on Main Street or experienced the aromas drifting from the Confectionary or rode Splash Mountain more times than I could count. I wouldn’t be the “me” I am today without encounters with Mickey, Donald, Peter Pan, Alice, the Princesses, you name it. Magic Kingdom really did shape my interests–without experiencing that park, I wouldn’t be the lovable “Disney freak” I am today.
Thanks for all that you have done for me, Magic Kingdom. And thank you, Walt Disney, for dreaming up a place so near and dear to my heart. I can’t wait to help carry out your legacy come February first.
