Why I Go To Disney By Guest Blogger Cameron Ramos


If you’re like me, and you’ve gone to Walt Disney World more times then you have fingers, its very likely you’ve been asked: “Why are you going back there? Isn’t it your 100th visit?!”

To that I respond, “Nope.” This summer, I’ll be making my 20th visit to the most magical place on earth. I’m 20 years old, and my family has been taking Disney vacations since 2000 when I was 5 years old. The first park that I ever visited was EPCOT on my very first night there. I met my first character, Alice from Alice in Wonderland, after being mesmerized by the amazing ‘Tapestry of Nations’ parade. I was hooked.

15 years later and 19 trips under my belt, I still remember that night, and all of the amazing moments that I’ve had at Walt Disney World. Each memory there is a treasure for me. There is nowhere else on earth where I can feel as happy as I do when I’m there. Where else can a soon to be junior in college get away with wearing a set of mouse years, singing along to Hakuna Matata while stuffing his face with a candy apple shaped like Olaf? A peace comes over me when I’m at my second home. My sister passed away a little over a year ago, and the best memories I have is our yearly vacations in Walt’s World. Every time I go, I can remember awesome moments I have with her, and I have the opportunity to make new ones with my family, friends, and girlfriend. They can experience me at my happiest and create amazing memories for themselves and see their dreams come true.

That’s why I keep going back to Disney World, and why I will continue to until the day I can’t no longer. I don’t care what others think of my love for Disney World, as long as I’m happy. Why do you go?

    We have gone many times and had the same questions. I tell people it is a different vacation each time. Where else can you be transported to so many different places in just a short time. We stay in the moderates which gives you a choice right there. The south and New Orleans, a mexican or southwest feel or the Caribbean . The value gives you fantasy and the deluxe could be wilderness, or New England or the shore. Vacation club a whole host of choices. Second and the big factor for me, I know what I am getting for my money. We can spend as much as we want or be frugal and still have a great time. We have done a couple different vacations recently and had fun. But till we were actually there my stomach was churning with anxiety. Did we choose a bad hotel, will the attractions and excursions be up to par? How will the food be. The traffic in one place was horrendous. What about parking? ($40.00a night one place) If there is a problem who do I call and do they ‘really’ care?
    So when I think about how great and worry free our Disney stays are I really know we can enjoy and be happy in the Happiest Place on Earth!

    I loved your story. I agree that WDW is an amazing place to make and relive family memories year after year. I live in Florida and have been blessed to visit over 300 times since WDW opened in 1971. I still get butterflies each time I pass under the big sign and have found that I simply never get tired of it. I love all the entertainment, the rides and the wonderful hospitality of the CM’s. It’s just a great place to people watch, walk, relax and enjoy some great shows and rides.
