Can you still feel the Magic?
I’m referring to the Magic Kingdom that is. See how quickly you’ve turned it into something else, When I think of Magic, I think Johnson. But c’mon let’s talk Disney. If you’ve been to any Disney store or Disneyland, every kid has that innocent twinkle in their eyes. Then there’s us. The adults that come up with lines like “this is where the magic happens” wink wink, nudge nudge..sick sick. I just went to the Magic Kingdom and I knew I was doomed not to feel the “magic” because all I was thinking about was how come Mickey and Minnie aren’t living together but beside each other after so many freaking years. Maybe they have some other kind of magic going on that they’re not sharing with the world and we need to figure it out. Everyone’s getting wrong except Mickster and Minnie.
Kids are running around with glee of hope and belief, the whole world looks so amazing, the “if you believe song” plays in the background by the castle and they never want to leave. Meanwhile, you’ve skipped over the wait time to see Mickey, and will take a picture with his statue to make up for it. Next thing you know you leave the park and you’re thinking, hey man it’s only 4:30. I signed up for a day of fun.
Really adults sign up for disappointment. We as kids hyped everything up and nothing could make you disappointed. Kid thought: OMG this will be a life changing day. I finally get to see Mickey, I can get any toy I want from him. Adult thoughts: where are all the scary rides, are we going to walk all that way to see the castle, where is the washroom?
Here’s my advice if you find yourself thinking that the Magical Kingdom is going to suck then you don’t deserve to be there. Your miserable face just ruined it for the kid next to you.
and Go Home.
