The creative world of Walt Disney has been such a bit part of all of our lives that many of us take it for granted. Disney movies and cartoons are often some of our strongest childhood memories. They have become such a part of us we rarely stop to think about the ways these stories have had an impact on how we view the world or how many of our fondest childhood experiences revolve around the robust characters Disney brought to our lives. The popularity of Disney Traditions figurines and other Disney memorabilia is proof of how important Disney is to our lives.
Strong friendships are a hallmark of Disney films. Winnie the Pooh and his friends spend quality time together. The Little Mermaid and Sebastian the Crab sing under the sea while they build memories. Watching (or remembering) Disney movies gives us a chance to relish our friendships and how important they are to us. New friends or old, the possibilities for magic adventures together awaits as long as we are open to friendships.
Disney has many important reminders that our family aren’t simply the people we are related to, they are also the people who become important to us. We can value the family we have while we add friends who become an extended part of our lives.
Entering the world of Disney is a chance to find a seemingly endless number of adventures with our friends. From the deepest ocean to flying on a magic carpet overhead, Disney can help to take our imaginations anywhere. We can find adventures in crossing magical kingdoms and righting wrongs or simply in traveling to the home of a friend. Disney gives us a chance to enjoy both our journeys and our destinations.
Enjoying the Mundane
We can be transported to a distant and magical land where princes and princesses rule or we can visit a simpler time when a good day is spent with a pot of honey and our best friends around us. This a great reminder that we need to value each day and each moment with those we care about. We can also shake of the worries of our daily lives by spending meaningful times with our Disney friends and family.
Who hasn’t dreamed of being a prince or princess? Disney allows us to live those dreams in style. Perhaps we’ll find our prince and maybe we’ll simply learn to harness our own internal royal strength and spirit.
Probably the most popular Disney moments involve magic. In some cases, literal magic, but often it is simply the magic of friendship and love. Even apparently ordinary stories are transformed by Disney with wonderful songs, depth of character and creativity. The complex animated artwork in their films draws people into these fabulous worlds while their magical settings and characters give us further details to discover each time we watch. This leads us to eagerly await more opportunities to re-enter the magical world of Disney once more.
