Can You Ever Be Too Old for Disney?


If you’re like me then you’ve probably heard this before. You are to old for Disney. Even better, that Disney is just for kids.  Well, if you are reading this then you either agree with me or you are trying to figure out my point of view.


I will start 36 1/2 years ago on November 18th, yes Mickey’s birthday, the day I was born. Yes, you could say I was born with Disney in my blood. I spent a great part of my childhood watching Disney cartoons and having Disney stuffed animals.


When I was about 6 or so, I had my first trip to Disney World with my family. This is where my journey and love for the parks started. I remember staying at The Contemporary with a park view, chasing characters at Chef Mickey and Empress Lily (man I am showing my age), Mickey’s Birthdaytown, and even riding the Skyway in Magic Kingdom. As I grew, my love for Disney grew. 


Beyond that trip, I dove head first into the 90’s movies, from The Lion King and Aladdin to The Mighty Ducks and Heavyweights. I always loved the movies and had a well rounded scope of favorites. Robin Hood was, and still is one of my favorites though. 


Fast forward to the past 10 years. I moved to Florida and made some weekend trips in Disney World,  but it wasn’t until I moved to Georgia and met my wife that I have grown to fully understand just how powerful an affect Disney can have on your life if you allow it to.


Not only have we made several trips to Disney since meeting in 2011, I knew I had to propose to her at Disney World. While we wanted a wedding in Disney, we had to “settle” for a Disney themed wedding in 2015. I’ve also made some amazing friends because of Disney with whom I never would have met otherwise.


So to the people that think there is an age limit on Disney,  I invite you to our side. We have amazing snacks! I mean, have you ever had a Dole Whip or Mickey Waffles??
