"I’ve been to Disney World 3 times, and I’ve never had any funny/special interactions with characters. It makes me sad when I see how many different people have had awesome moments with characters; every character I’ve met just gave me an autograph. I’m going back to WDW in December. I’m really hoping that I can have a cool character moment."
"My family is in the middle of a very difficult divorce and we are in process of losing the house I grew up in. Last spring my sister and I went to Florida to visit my Dad and we were able to spend one day at Disney World. With everything that has been going on I look up to Cinderella because no matter how bad things get she always stays hopeful. Meeting her at Disney World gave me hope that things will get better and I will get out of the dark place in my life."
"Last year, I had to take a semester off due to some mental health problems. What helped me get through that rough period was a trip to Disney World I took with a couple school friends. Being with them at Disney World helped me forget my problems for a little while. I was so happy that I could spend that time with them and create precious memories, especially since most of those friends have graduated and moved on to better things"
"I was used as an example for kids not to get fat at Walt Disney World —- by a cast member. It really ruined the magic and if I ever see that cast member again I’d like to say something to them. I’ve lost 55 pounds since then because of that. Now let’s see if I’m an example."
“My mom surprised me with a trip to WDW for my birthday, and while I had an amazing time, I’m kind of upset that I didn’t get to plan it. We ended up flying home on Dapper Day and missing the Festival of Fantasy parade. I’m honestly a little heartbroken… and I feel incredibly guilty too.”
“I feel like one of the luckiest girls in the world. 2 years ago, I got to go to Disney World with my crush. My family wanted to bring a guest with us so he and my oldest brother could go ride all the roller coasters, while my younger siblings and I rode the kiddy rides. My brother wanted to bring his best friend, whom just happened to the guy I liked. (At that time, my family didn’t know I was crushing on him) It was a super fun, amazing, once in a lifetime experience.”
“I really want to try out to be a Disney Princess, just to try it and see if I make the cut. I can’t imagine leaving home for a year and living in Orlando, but I feel like if I don’t at least TRY I’ll regret it.”
"My little sister is suicidal and tried to commit suicide once. After she got out of the hospital, I took her to Disney World and let her meet Peter Pan because she loves him so much. After she met him, she started to get better. I hope the face characters realize how much of a difference they make in people’s lives and that their hard work truly pays off. I can’t thank him enough. Disney truly does bring happiness into people’s lives."
"My biggest fear is not being able to fit into the rides on my upcoming trip to Disney World, due to my weight. However, if I keep going with Weight Watchers and resume exercise soon (I suffered whiplash and other injuries from a car accident recently and had to stop working out for a month), I’ll be fine."
“This may be weird but whenever I go to Disney World I always keep an eye out for attractive guys. I figure if they’re there then they must at least like Disney, which, to me, is important. I’m going on Valentine’s Day so hopefully there are single guys looking for a princess!”
