Wednesday with Walt: A Big Kid

Many people had nice comments to say about Walt Disney after the news of his passing hit the mainstream. Eric Sevareid, a television journalist, remembered him in such a way that I feel is absolutely on target. He said, “Walt Disney seemed to know that while there is very little grown-up in a child, there is a lot of child in every grown-up. To a child, this weary world is brand new; Disney tried to keep it that way for adults.”
That sounds exactly like Walt personified, doesn’t it? If I had the memory skills to remember that statement, I would deliver those words every time someone asks me why we always go to Walt Disney World. I have been in love with Walt Disney World for longer than I can remember; there really is nowhere like it.
There is indeed a lot of child in every grown-up and, although there seems to be more child in some of us than others, I am not totally convinced that is true. I think some of us just suppress it more than others. I am absolutely NOT someone who suppresses my inner child, especially when I am at Disney. Have you lost the child in you? If you have, it is time for a trip.

You can be sure that as soon as we get near the turnpike, I am on the edge of my seat. I become more anxious by the minute, waiting for the moment we drive through that beautiful Disney archway with Mickey and Minnie greeting us on either side. It says simply, “Walt Disney World — Where Dreams Come True.” Doesn’t that just sound magical?

Once we arrive at the resort, we put our things in the room and then we are off to the Magic Kingdom. The Magic Kingdom has traditionally been our first park to visit during every trip. After all, I am not home until I am standing on Main Street USA, staring at the castle and tearing up at how much I have missed it and how long it seems that I have waited to return.

I am giddy in every line waiting to ride all of my favorites again: Tower of Terror, Aerosmith’s Rock N Roller Coaster, Expedition Everest, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and so many others. It gives me such a freeing spirit to let go and just have fun without life pulling me in every direction.

Family trips offer such a wonderful opportunity for bonding. My kids have learned that I don’t just correct them, force them to clean their rooms and do their homework, but I thoroughly and from the deepest depths of my heart love them dearly and absolutely cherish our fun times together. Smiles are in abundance when we are at the most magical place on earth. Kids really do grow up way to fast and I am so thankful for my time to enjoy life with them.

Adult-only trips spent at Disney are amazing as well. My husband and I took our first trip without the kids this past April. It was a wonderful time to reinforce the friendship we had when our relationship was new. It reminded us that we could have lots of fun still, just like we did before our lives were centered around the kids. It was the perfect way to find that fun spirit we share with each other, and what a blessing that is.
Walt Disney opened this world up to us to enjoy and share with family. Thank goodness he knew “there is a lot of child in every grown-up.” I know that is certainly true for me. I love going to Walt Disney World and being a big kid again, even if it is just for a short period of time. I think it brings out the best in me – in all of us. Thank you, Walter Elias Disney!
