All the Reasons We Love Walt Disney World

As we prepare for another spring break at Walt Disney World, I reflect on why we love Walt Disney World as a family. Because of this, I wanted to share why we continue to love Walt Disney World as a family and head there for our vacations each year.

It Is Clean

When we think about Walt Disney World, we appreciate that cleanliness is essential to the company. We like that the Walt Disney World Resorts and Parks are shiny and new each morning.

At Magic Kingdom, there is nothing better than being the first group to walk down Main Street, U.S.A., and see the castle in the morning glory.

At the Disney Resorts, we are grateful that they take extra steps to ensure cleanliness in between Guests and are constantly wiping down high-touch surfaces throughout the Disney property.

Knowing that these steps are being taken to keep the theme Park and Disney Resorts clean gives us peace of mind when visiting.

Disney Is For Families

One of the main reasons we love Walt Disney World is because the whole family can enjoy it together. This was the vision and goal of Walt Disney when he first started dreaming up the theme Park. He wanted a place where parents could enjoy joy with their kids, not from the sidelines.

This is exactly what Walt Disney World is for us. Family members, young and old, can enjoy the magic of the four theme parks together, making Disney World a truly magical place for us.

Always Something New and Exciting

We can return to Walt Disney World each year because there is always something new to experience. From new rides and attractions to new restaurants and snacks, Walt Disney World is constantly bringing new experiences for Guests to the Parks and Resorts.

We have seen Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind come to EPCOT. Tron Lightcyle Run will open in April at Magic Kingdom, and Journey of Water: Inspired by Moana will also open in EPCOT in 2023. We are thrilled always to have new experiences to enjoy each trip we make to Walt Disney World.

Food Is Key

We realize that only some think of great food when they visit Walt Disney World, but the food is one of the reasons we continue to visit Walt Disney World.

We enjoy having the chance to enjoy a Mickey Bar in Magic Kingdom or breakfast with Mickey and friends in EPCOT. The themed cupcakes or hitting up a variety of food booths during the festival in EPCOT is also a favorite we have. Walt Disney World is a great place to enjoy various food options all in one location.

Adults Can Be Kids

We love Walt Disney World because we can be kids again. We love that we can laugh, cry and scream with our kids as we experience the different attractions. It is nice to step away from the real world and be joyful and experience the magic.

From watching the fireworks together at the Magic Kingdom to screaming alongside our family on Expedition Everest in Animal Kingdom, we are so grateful that Walt Disney World provides us a place to relive those joyful moments of being a kid.

All the Rides

It seems obvious, but the rides make us love Walt Disney World. From the classic attractions in Magic Kingdom such as Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, or It’s a Small World to new attractions such as Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

We love all of the rides at Walt Disney World. The themed and immersiveness of each ride indeed transfer us to these new and magical lands.

Live Entertainment

Another reason we love Walt Disney World is because of the live entertainment we experience within Disney Parks. From the Broadway-like shows of Festival of the Lion King, Beauty and the Beast Live on Stage, and Finding Nemo The Big Blue and Beyond, these shows are breathtaking and truly unique to Walt Disney World.

We also enjoy the shows that bring excitement and humor to our days. Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular and For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along are incredibly entertaining, and we enjoy them each time we visit.

Disney does a fantastic job of creating unique and entertaining shows for Guests to enjoy during their vacations.

Magic is Alive

The biggest reason we love Walt Disney World is because of the magic it brings to us. Every time we visit Disney, we feel the magic and are immersed in it. We love to see our favorite characters and movies all come to life right before us. It is tough to put into words the magic we feel in Walt Disney World, but it has us returning each year.

We are so grateful to the Cast Members who continue to help make the magic real for us during each visit to Walt Disney World. They are what makes Disney unique.

We continue to travel to Walt Disney World for many reasons each year. By sharing these reasons with you, we hope that you, too, can enjoy Walt Disney World with those you care about. We know we can’t wait for our next trip to Walt Disney World, where we will create more magical memories together.

Jennifer became a lifelong Disney fan during her first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of her life. She quickly started to introduce her love of Disney to her family with a Disney honeymoon and then family trips when her youngest was 18 months old. She loves the magic that Disney brings to people through theme parks, cruises, and adventures. As a teacher, she tries to bring Disney magic into her classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” She is also part of the Magic Vacation Planner team as a personal travel advisor. With this team, she can now help others plan magical vacations. She loves bringing her love to Disney to readers with How to Disney.
