If you were to ask someone to paint a picture of Disney World in their head, they will most likely imagine one of two things: Main Street, or Cinderella’s Castle.
As a little girl, I used to think Cinderella’s Castle was the coolest thing about Disney World. It was huge, it was old, and it was beautiful. It was literally the center of Magical Kingdom, and it’s the one thing people always take pictures of and in front of when they go to the park. That castle is one of the biggest staples for Disney.
And I think you know by now how I feel about Disney.
Being back at Magical Kingdom for the first time in a long time was, well, magical. Although I didn’t really get to see any of the princesses, I at least got to see Buzz Lightyear, and the castle. And I got to be there with Joanne, Mike, and the kids. So I was a really happy girl that day.
Disney took up a lot of my childhood, and so it holds a special place in my heart. It’s all about the nostalgia, folks!
The magic that is Disney kept me a happy, musical child, who believed in love, and that good defeats evil every time. And even though those things don’t go exactly how the films depict them, they gave children and adults alike hope in goodness, fairness, and happiness.
And karma, but that’s a different story to tell.
Cinderella’s Castle is a beautiful building with the story to tell of a girl who just wanted a fun night out, and ended up finding her Happily Ever After. Despite the fact that it just looks awesome, it also is a physical representation of hope for me.
And I love that.
Prompt: Post a picture of a place you love.
