The “Real” Disney

As a girl who grew up loving all things Disney- I will say the one thing that always bothered me is how unrealistic it all is. To state the obvious the knight in shining armor thing seems less and less likely by the day. Then there’s this whole fairy Godmother business- I don’t know about you but mine must not like me because I have yet to meet her. Then of course there is the fact that each of these princesses are absolutely flawless no matter what type of life they come from. They have the most adorable outfits and their best friends are their pets (ok that part is realistic but mine doesn’t talk!).

My obsession with Disney ran so deep that not only did our family vacation their MULTIPLE times in my childhood but I also interned there for a few months. Working there did help make the whole thing a little more real as I learned a few of the Disney secrets but it still was all a bit surreal. This perfect fairy tale land was always my escape- always that perfect place that doesnt really exist. Needless to say when I realized that this “fairy tale” could become a bit more real I was elated.

My first introduction to real life Disney possibilities in my life was a Disney Wedding:

What girl wouldn’t want a fairy tale wedding like that? But of course to have a fairy tale wedding you would need to look like a princess right? Well then I discovered another way Disney has become a little more real:

So it looks like we can have a fairy tale wedding and look like a princess with the right photographer and clothing- oh shoot clothing- how are we going to get that? Well Disney is one step ahead of us providing us with real life Crystal Slippers- like Cinderellas:

So that settles it! No more doubts! Disney is as real as ever and needs to make my life a fairytale- like right away! Bloggers what Disney fairytale would you like to become a little more real?

  1. For me, the “magic” of Disney is that it is “nice”. Everyone is nice. The people are pleasant, the place is clean. It makes everyone happy, so everyone is nice. They treat each other politely and with respect. You can even leave gifts unattended and no one touches them. Would it be so difficult for THAT to become real? Would it hurt anyone to be a little nicer and a little more considerate… even when they are NOT on vacation?

    Not only would that be “magic”, but it could change the world.

    But, I’m just another Disney dreamer….

  2. Shae, being someone who lived in Orlando for 15 years and went to Disney probably a MILLION times, I loved this post!

    The thing I adore about Disney is that while you’re within their world, they have a magical way of making fairy tales REAL. I guess that’s why they call it….The Magic Kingdom!

    My favorite fairy tale and ride within Disney is “Peter Pan’s Flight.” I know it’s one of the older and original rides on its property, but I STILL get that childlike and giddy feeling every time I fly over the city and look down at the twinkling lights, because it REALLY feels like I’m FLYING!


    Fun post!

    Love you new blog template!

  3. I’ve always enjoyed most Disney movies, besides some horrid direct to dvd crap. But we won’t go there. It is possible to come due, just depends on how you view it.

  4. I’ve never gone to Disneyland/world. I guess maybe if I win the Superbowl I will. As for your prompt: I’d like the flying carpet from Aladdin to be real. That was one cool self-aware carpet.

  5. Fun read! I’ve never been to Disney Land or World, but I listened to hundreds of Disney songs from growing up until now. (I am still growing up.) Can’t think right now which Disney fairytale I would like to come true, but will come back and tell you if one pops into this mind later on.
