Wondering why people think Disney is the BEST Vacation? Curious why people will go back and back and back again? READ on for Why I Love Disney.
Hey Fans, I am sitting here trying to think about what to post next and I remembered a visit we just had at the Eye Doctor. She, our Dr, had recently visited a few “other” theme park destinations and was very disappointed as they just weren’t Disney. As I am listening to her story, she is explaining what she noticed and how Disney is just SO much better and worth the price difference. So…it got me thinking…for those that are NEW to Disney, who haven’t tasted the Disney Kool-Aid yet – here are a few reasons why we love to Disney.
So this is no secret, Disney is known for its amazing service. But I often get asked for examples. I have thousands, but of course can’t name them all but here are a few that stand out, at the moment. The Cast Members, those sweet Disney employees. They are there to help create the Magic, they are part of the show. This means doing everything and anything, most of the time unexpectedly. Like the time a Cast Member sent my son a cake for his birthday. Still clueless on how that happened, allergy safe too. Or the time a CM saw my daughter and I walking down main street and asked us if we had Memory Maker. I said, yes…so he walked us to a secret location and took the most incredible pictures of us.
So this gets mentioned by my clients ALL THE TIME. They can’t believe how clean the parks are. Disney really does go out of their way to have the cleanest parks. Walt would walk Disneyland and watch park-goers. He would watch them get a snack, eat it and see how many steps it took before they were ready to trash. This is why trash cans are everywhere and they are strategically placed based on where the snacks/eats are. ALL CM’s are to pick up trash anytime they see it, no matter their title. NO Gum is sold at the parks, so no sticky rides, walkways or table tops. There are more examples, but trust me…Disney is very clean.
Disney has the BEST theming. In fact they created the concept, it adds to the magic. Some “other” parks have great theme placement too, but its not the ENTIRE park, usually just a section. Disney’s attention to detail is hands down amazing. Did you know that each “land” has different music and as you walk thru the different zones, the music changes…it’s so subtle you barely notice it unless you are looking for it. The entire park is themed and the transitions from one to the other are spotless. Heck, even the garbage cans are in character. CM costumes are another example. Did you know they aren’t allowed to walk from one land to another if they are in a specific lands costume. Make sure to look up and around and see the details, the hidden Mickeys and the transitions from one area to the next.
Disney is happy. It feels happy the moment you arrive, enter the park and walk around. The colors, the music, the gardens, the people…just happiness all around. The cast members are happy. As you walk down Main Street, they are smiling at you, welcoming you, waving and almost cheering you on for a good day. I love how even the security guards are happy and smiling. As they go through bag after bag, listening to who knows what from other park-goers…they are cheerful.
There are probably thousands of reasons why Disney is amazing. Why I can say…I love Disney to the Moon and Back. Why I will go over and over again AND I am not alone. The reason they are a bazillion $$ company. Once people drink the Disney Kool-Aid, they are hooked. I have several clients who claim they are only going once, a ONE and DONE vacation…well they went back and back again. If you’ve been, why do you LOVE Disney. Let me know in the comments.
