Yes, it’s true. The fact that the Walt Disney Company was established on this day in 1923, combined with the fact that I was born on this day in 1986, has awarded me with the perfect, logically excuse as to why I am so obsessed with all things Disney! It’s written in the stars!
Normally on Friday’s I post a Fun Fact, but since today is my birthday, I’m going to serve up 5 juicy facts all about me+disney! Enjoy 🙂
1.) When I was two-years old, I went to Disney World for the first time. The best memory from this was when Baloo chased me around the yard! My parents still laugh about it today.
2.) I have a room in my house dedicated to all things Disney. The point of this was to keep my obsession contained… but, alas, the Den just couldn’t hold all of my love and so some of it has spilled over into my kitchen cabinets. And, possibly, my bedroom. Oh, and in my car… *yikes*
3.) I don’t know how many times I have been to Walt Disney World, but my best guess would be at least 10 times! I’ve also been to Disneyland twice, and have recently made last-minute plans to go back in November of this year!
4.) For the past three-years or so, I have kept this pin on my desk. My office is decorated professionally, and this it literally the only “fun” or “whimsical” item I have on display. I feel like it represents me, because I work int he construction industry, but I’m a Disney-Girl at heart! I love this pin!
5.) The last time I was in Walt Disney World with my family was in 2011. It was a different trip, because we are all so much older now. We stayed at the All-Star Music hotel for a week. My greatest memory, as cheesy as it may sound, was when the hotel did an outdoor movie by the pool. They were playing Beauty and the Beast, one of my all-time favorite movies. We had gone out to pick up a pizza at Giordano’s and sat outside, watching the movie, and just being together.
Since then, a lot has changed. My siblings and I have moved in and out of my parent’s home, every one is working different hours, and we all have our own friends/significant others/etc… that are threaded through our lives. Sometimes it saddens me to think that it will never be “the five of us” again. But thankfully, I have such wonderful memories to look back on, and Disney is a huge part of that.
Have a great weekend everyone!
