What Disney Is To A Kiwi by Sam from New Zealand

Written by Sam Pratley


My name is Sam and I am a Disney fan from New Zealand, I go to Disneyland whenever I can afford it and it was suggested I do a blog post about how I view Disney being from possibly the furthest place away from Disney.
Now I’m in TMSM Fan Nation on Facebook and I often see people post things or comment on threads about how often they go to their nearest Disney park and quite often I see people saying every second week or sometime relatively close to each other and my first thought is usually “doesn’t it get boring going so often”, now I think this because I’ve only been around 7 or 8 times in the 16 years I’ve been on this earth, and every time I go it’s always very different from before.
When I go to Disneyland I often go for a week or so because of the distance to travel (which often equates to around 30hrs on a plane) and it’s always a fun and really enjoyable time, I always try to do the most that I can because I never know just when my next trip will be. I love Disney not just because it’s such a happy and enjoyable place but to me going to Disney is a real treat and I’m always making memories.
I always try to do different things each time I go, I’m not a big fan of thrill rides but last time I went (last Christmas) I tried the Matterhorn and Splash Mountain, both rides I liked and went on plenty of times.
Disney to me is a place where mothers, daughters, fathers and sons can go to enjoy their time together and forget about the worries of life and be kids again 🙂

  1. Great job Sam! I hope if I’m lucky, that someday I’ll get to visit New Zealand. That’s always, my whole life, been a dream of mine. Thanks for sharing your thoughts & art with us =D
