Magical Blogorail Green: Thankful at Disney

Welcome to the first stop aboard Magical Blogorail Green. Enjoy the ride as we share what we are most thankful for at Disney Resorts.

When I think about Disney, there are so many things I'm thankful for!  One thing I'm most thankful for is the friends I've made through my love for Disney.  This group, The Magical Blogorail, has almost become second family to me and I'm so thankful for the love and support they have shown me over the past few years.  But, this post isn't about friends, it's about Disney resorts so... on with the post!

One of the many things I'm thankful for at Disney Resorts, whether that is Walt Disney World or Disneyland (I've never been to the others) is how they take care of their guests.  Disney does an OUTSTANDING job looking out for people with physical and mental limitations, people with food issues and people in unique situations.  I have several friends who even write blogs solely devoted to traveling to Disney in wheelchairs, traveling with autistic children or special needs children and traveling with members who need special diets- gluten free, dairy free, nut free, etc.  It always makes me smile to know that Disney has taken care of these guests and I'm thankful for that.

I'm also thankful for the fact that Disney is always changing.  While I do miss several of the attractions of days gone by, I'm always looking forward to what is next.  Of all the trips I've made to Walt Disney World, no two have ever been alike due to new attractions, new restaurants, new resorts, special events, new races, etc.  There is always something new on the horizon at Disney and I'm thankful for that.

Having a place where my family can visit and not worry about all the things we've left behind is another reason I'm thankful for Disney.  When we set foot on Disney property we know we are in our happy place and things in the outside world seem to disappear.  When we travel to other places, that doesn't happen.  I'm not sure why this happens at Disney, but it does and I'm thankful.

The last thing I'm thankful for is Disney memories.  The memories I have over the years from Disney vacations top almost all of my other family vacation memories.  Maybe it's because we've been so many times.  Maybe it's just because Disney is THAT good at making memories!  Either way, I'm very thankful for the memories I have.

If you're curious what the rest of my family is thankful for at Disney, you can read about my husband here, my middle son here and the oldest & youngest boys here!  What are you thankful for?  I'd love to hear about it in the comments!

Thank you for joining me today. Your next stop on the Magical Blogorail Loop is Walt Disney World: Not Just for Kids.
