Disney Memories

As I'm sure you've noticed, I've been on a Disney kick lately. Part of that is because I just went {see here, and here} and part of that is because I miss it. I miss living in a place that exists to make people happy. I miss having roommates that I can go places with. I miss having a job I care passionately about.

I know my melancholy is temporary. I know that this summer, at camp, and in August, in China, I'll find my passion again. I'll meet people. I'll explore.

Until then, I thought I'd share some of my very favorite memories of Disney, at least, the ones I have pictures for. Sometimes we have to be happy for the memories and look forward to the future.

Me and Launchpad McQuack. I love Launchpad McQuack! You know, from Ducktales?

Near the Great Movie Ride in front of James Doohan's block. Yes, that is Scotty from Star Trek. 

Riding Space Mountain with the lights on. That was pretty awesome.

Mickey Mouse at Mickey's Backyard BBQ. It's a super cute dance party with some characters. I just loved the costumes all the characters were wearing. And the food reminded me of Texas.

The Fireworks at Disney's Pirate and Princess Party. It was one of my favorites.

 The family with Mickey Mouse.

Some of my favorite people with Baloo and King Looey.

See, I feel better already!

What are some memories you're fond of?


  1. You met Launchpad! I love meeting all of the characters that aren't just Minnie and Mickey and the princesses -- although I love meeting them too. Last time I was there, I got some fun photos with the Stepmother and Stepsisters from Cinderella. They were so much fun!

  2. Looks like so much fun! I've never been to Disneyworld, but I go to Disneyland a few times a year! Best place ever!
