“A lot of people complain that Hercules isn’t faithful to Greek mythology. Now, I’m not saying they’re wrong, but it makes me feel like they’re unaware that Disney HAS been faithful to Greek mythology before. Doesn’t anyone remember the Beethoven segment of Fantasia? For the most part, it was spot on! Hopefully Greek mythology fans will find solace in that segment.”
"A year ago, my friend and I made plans to go to Disney world at spring break, unfortunately, we got in a stupid fight, and my family and I went without her. My sisters had their friends with them and it was a disappointing trip because it was finally going to be the trip when I wasn’t the third wheel."
"I would love to go to Disneyland all by myself one day. I went for my birthday in January, but my family couldn’t keep up with me and held me back from the things I would have loved to do (see the princesses and go to at least one ride in every park). And since my sister had school the next day, we couldn’t stay for World of Color. If I had any friends close by I’d take them, but I don’t. I’m better off alone anyway."
"The cynicism about Disney by some people really upset me. Yes, they are a company that wants to make a profit, but I truly believe that they hold fast to Walt’s vision and core values of making entertainment for the whole family and creating magic in all that they do."
"When our school held auditions for Beauty and the Beast and I didn’t get in, I refused to admit that the show was even going on. To top it off a girl in my grade got Belle, and I didn’t even make the crew. It made me so upset that I boycotted the whole drama department."
"My family goes to Disney World whenever my parents are on the verge of a divorce. Now their marriage has gotten so bad they want to move half way across the country to Florida to try and fix it because Florida and Disney is the only place we seem to be happy. I don’t even think living near the happiest place on earth can fix this."
"I remember growing up watching Disney and going to Disneyland. My whole family has grown out of it. Even my little nine year old sister doesn’t care for Disney. Every time I start talking about Disney to my family they sound like they are annoyed with me. My best friend, my dflb, is the only one in my life that shares the same love for Disney as I do."
"My cousin and I call Peter Pan’s Flight in Magic Kingdom the "touch-everything ride" because we always break the rules a little bit (not to the point where it’s dangerous; we only do it if it’s so close that it’s safe) and make a contest out of who can touch the most stuff on the ride. Our main goal is to someday be able to touch the top of Wendy’s head."
Edit: As an attractions cast member, (especially one who used to work in Fantasyland) do you know how incredibly annoying that is? You sticking your hands out of the boat can not only cause the ride to stop but cause it to break down. Throughout all attractions are intrusion systems built to detect movement within the ride where there’s not supposed to be. And that’s what causes rides to stop, and sometimes to break down and that’s when we have to evacuate the guests off the ride, and on Peter Pan’s flight that’s INCREDIBLY difficult since the attraction is suspended. You then ruin the magic for guests on the ride and frustrate the guests who want to go on the ride but can’t because it’s down, and therefore make the cast members’ lives’ harder. Please stop doing this, this confession makes me really angry. -Jen
"Disney & Disneyland are my passions. They are what helped me through my depression and have kept me here. I am so thankful for that because I now have the chance to apply to the Disney College Program for the Spring of 2015 & the Summer of 2015 programs."
"I was at Disney World for my first MNSSHP when I was twenty and the Headless Horseman at the beginning of the parade really scared me."
