Keep Moving Forward

When Walt Disney dreamed of Disney Parks, he wanted to create a place where kids and adults can enjoy themselves together. He also said that the dream will never be completed. The Parks will constantly change, grow, and adapt.

It is this original dream that keeps Guests coming back each year to Disney destinations. Each year Walt Disney World has new and exciting experiences for Guests to enjoy. 

Just recently we have enjoyed the opening of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. We are anxiously waiting for Tron Lightcycle Run to open in April.

For dining, Roundup Rodeo BBQ in Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be opening soon for Guests to experience a fantastic meal in Andy’s backyard.

Each season new snacks also make their way to the Walt Disney World Parks and Resorts. These beautiful creations bring Guests down as well so they can capture these treats.

Guests will also be able to meet new beloved characters as Moana and Maribel arrive in the Parks. 

All of these new experiences keep Guests coming back to Walt Disney World each year. We look forward to all the new magical fun coming in the future.


Amazing Theming

Walt Disney World brings theming to a whole new level throughout the Parks and Resorts. This attention to detail has Guests coming back each year. Being immersed in the magic is something that Disney does so extremely well.

Disney Resorts can transform Guests to a tropical getaway or an elegant escape. When staying at one of Walt Disney World’s Resorts, Guests are immersed in the theme throughout the Resort. From the amazing dining experiences, pools, rooms, and overall decorations, the Disney Resorts are truly magical. This immersive experience is part of bringing Guests back to Walt Disney World each year.

Disney Parks also bring over-the-top themes. What makes these so immersive is that the themes are found throughout the whole land. The rides, food, and decorations make the area completely immersive.

The next time you visit, take time to listen to how the Cast Members address you. This is also based on the area you are in. They not only are dressed in the part, but they will also address you based on the theme. It is fun that Disney makes sure the theme is present in all aspects of the Park.

It is this immersive theming that keeps Guests coming back to Disney each year.

Escape From Reality

In our crazy, busy world Walt Disney World provides an escape. Here Guests can fly over Neverland with Peter Pan, join the Resistance, blast off to space, and go on a safari. Disney provides a place where we can step away from reality and take time to enjoy those around us.

Because Disney provides this escape, many enjoy visiting each year. Disney has become a safe place where they are able to enjoy the magic all around them.

Magical Moments

Another reason why many find themselves visiting Walt Disney World each year is because of the magical moments they experience each year. Although we all plan our trips, it is often the unexpected moments that bring us the biggest joys. 

Watching your little one meet Mickey Mouse for the first time or your kids being big enough to ride their first roller coaster, these magical moments happen all the time at Walt Disney World and keep Guests coming back.

At EPCOT there are numerous festivals throughout the year that have Guests coming back to enjoy. Each festival has delicious food and drinks, exciting entertainment, and activities for the whole family to enjoy. 

Because every festival is different and each year brings new opportunities, Guests tend to come back each year to enjoy these EPCOT festivals.

Like festivals, many Guests return to Walt Disney World each year to experience the holidays. With special events such as Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party each year, Guests love to celebrate the holidays with loved ones.

Disney brings magic to these holiday seasons and is the reason many visit Walt Disney World each year for the holidays.

Disney Cast Members

The main reason why Guests continue to come back to Walt Disney World each year is because of the amazing Disney Cast Members. It is these men and women who work hard each day to bring magic to Guests.

Because of them, Walt Disney World is a magical place. It is their dedication to the magic that makes it possible for all of us to enjoy. The level of customer service that Disney provides each day is on different levels. Those Cast Members are a key reason why Guests continue to visit Walt Disney World each day.

If you haven’t been to Walt Disney World you might not understand why people go back each year to visit. Hopefully, by sharing these reasons why Guests continue to visit each year you will consider visiting the magic once.
