Going To Disney Again? 10 Reason Why We Keep Heading Back

We get asked why we keep going to Walt Disney World each year. So why do we choose to keep heading back every year? There are ten reasons why we keep heading back to the magic.

10. New Experiences

We love heading to Walt Disney World because of the new experiences we can enjoy on each trip. We are so grateful that Disney is constantly bringing new rides, shows, entertainment, food, and magic to the Parks each year.

Because of all these new experiences, we can always find something that we haven’t done before, making each trip different.

9. Characters

There is no other place to meet some of our favorite Disney characters. It is great to see Mickey, his friends, and some of the princesses and Pixar characters throughout the Disney Parks.

Each time we meet a character on a trip, the interaction is unique and special. These moments are what keep us heading back. The hug from Mickey Mouse, the chat with Cinderella, and the dancing with Buzz and Woody are all magical moments and make Disney a special place for use.

8. Snacks

Disney snacks have always been something that we have looked forward to during a Disney vacation. Now that Disney Park Blog has put out foodie guides, we look forward to the special snacks even more.

On each trip, we look forward to trying new snacks that we can find throughout the Parks and Resorts. Although we enjoy our favorites, such as a Mickey pretzel or a Dole Whip, there is something fun and exciting about trying out the new treats each visit.

7. Thrills and Screams

The rides at all four Disney Parks also keep us returning each year. Since we aren’t huge fans of crazy roller coasters, we like that we can get some thrills at Disney without getting sick or scared.

Thrill rides such as Rock n’ Roller Coaster, Expedition Everest, and now Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind are fantastic thrill rides that allow us to scream and have a great time without being scared.

Often the over-the-top thrill rides at other Parks aren’t as welcoming to us, but Disney lets us enjoy some thrills while feeling safe and not ill.

6. Dining

Many don’t believe us, but we enjoy trips to Disney because of the food options. Often people are surprised to learn that Walt Disney World offers a handful of outstanding dining locations that aren’t just burgers and fries.

As part of our trips, we enjoy exploring new dining locations. These might be new sit-down locations such as Steakhouse 71 at Disney’s Contemporary Resort or a quick meal at the new Connections Eatery in EPCOT.

We enjoy exploring new dining options throughout the Walt Disney World Resort on each trip.

5. Stepping Into the Movies

Another reason that we love going back to Walt Disney World is because we can see our childhood favorites come to life. We love enjoying rides such as Peter Pan’s Flight, Navi River Journey, or The Seas With Nemo and Friends, where we can step into some of our favorite movies.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, Avatar: Flight of Passage, and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance are all rides that truly transport us right into the story. We love how Disney Imagineers have been able to do this throughout the Disney Parks.

4. Disney Resorts

We love heading back to Walt Disney World to enjoy the relaxation and beauty of Disney Resorts. Most Guests focus on Theme Parks, but we also love the fantastic Resorts that make up the Disney magic.

As part of our Disney trips, we enjoy taking time to relax and explore everything our Disney Resort has to offer. This might mean a day at the pool, walking around to explore, or enjoying free activities such as movies under the stars.

Each Disney Resort adds to the magic in its way; we love that about them.

3. To Relax

This might surprise some, but we head to Walt Disney World to relax. If you have taken a trip to Disney, you might need clarification about how relaxation happens. We take time during our trip to leave the Parks, enjoy the pools, explore the Resorts, and finally slow down and enjoy the Parks.

We can enjoy our trip and the magic there by scheduling in relaxation.

2. To Be a Kid

Let’s face it; we have so many responsibilities as an adult that it is nice to go somewhere and act like a kid. We are grateful that Walt Disney created a place where adults can be kids again.

We love that we can hug our favorite characters, cry at the fireworks, laugh, and scream on the rides without judgment. Having a place where we can do this is so important to us.

1. Magic

Finally, we head back to Walt Disney World because of the magic and pixie dust. No matter how often we visit, we love the feeling of happiness that we have when we are there. We love how Disney creates magic for Guests and are so grateful for all the magical memories we have made and will continue to make in the future during our trips.

So yes, we are going to Walt Disney World again. There is so much that we love about this magical place that we look forward to heading back to each year. We hope that you will as well.
