Disney from a Teen’s Perspective: Growing up Disney

Gabby 1

Being born in Orlando, I have been very fortunate to have the ability to go to Disney anytime I want. My family normally goes almost every weekend. I definitely know how lucky I am to have this luxury. I have been going to Disney since I was 6 months old. Some say that is too young but that’s when my family thought I was ready to witness the magic for the first time.

Disney never gets old to me. It’s always brought a smile to my face. My mom said that the first time I rode Dumbo was such a magical moment. She said that my eyes lit up taking in all the sites. I may be 14, but I still have those magical moments. Disney is so breathtaking. I love being able to relive these memories through my younger brother and sister. When they do something for the first time, I get to relive a memory.


A new found hobby of mine is photography. Since I have started photography, I see all the small details in the parks. I have an eye for the details. As my mom likes to say, I stop to “smell the roses” when I’m taking pictures in the parks. My brother and sister are eager to get to a ride but, I’m always a few steps behind because I’m taking a picture. Remember to stop and take in the sites!

I recently celebrate my 14th birthday in the most magical place on earth! What better way to celebrate! I just asked for a special breakfast at O’hana and a trip to the Magic Kingdom, not a giant extravagant birthday party. If you ever ask me if Disney gets old, my answer will always be, never!

I’m 13 years old and have had Disney Annual Passes my whole life. Disney is literally my second home. I’m an honors student and enjoy school. My favorite sport is volleyball.
