The Happiest Place on Earth
My first film to see on this planet was The Lion King. Arguably the best Disney film of all time (Followed by Tangled and then Meet the Robinsons - well, at least in MY book).
So as I am sure you can guess, with my first film experience being a Disney movie, my life was forever marked with the eternal and undying love for all things Disney Princess and Disney.
As soon as you hear about this magical place called Disney World at a ripe, young age, your little heart beats with joy and wonder at what this fantastical place could possibly hold in store for you. My experience was no different, however, with the way my cards were dealt in life, my first taste of any sort of Disney experience came at the wonderful age of 19. And it wasn't even a Disney Park experience. Regardless, that truly was a wonderful first experience, and one day I may expand on that story.
Now cut to being a few years older and wiser (HAHAHA...no), and cue the part where I finally had the opportunity to take the full plunge and visit The Happiest Place on Earth, and as luck would have it, I would get to create this magical life event and enjoy it 100% completely and utterly by myself.
That is right folks! I went to my personal Mecca for this first time ever - BY. MY. SELF.
Let me tell you, it was a total BLAST and I highly recommend that if you ever have the chance to go alone, take it!
I had a goal to have the most memorable character interactions possible - which lead to some pretty interesting photos and stories behind them:
