Happy New Year!!!



or a Pirate...


A place where you can be a Princess or...

DISNEY- The Best Place in the World...Maybe?

Imagination, Entertainment, and Fun. Words that describe Disney for many families. It is a place to get away from the stress of the world, relax, and have an enjoyable vacation with your family.
What better place to let imaginations run wild? A child can be a princess in a castle or a talking bear. He or she can be a pirate on board with Captain Jack Sparrow or exploring the jungle by river. Children, today, don't get to expand their imaginations with all the multimedia they are exposed to. At Disney, the sets are all there. The children can let imagination roam free.
Disney is not just for children. My husband and I recently spent a week by ourselves at Disney. We could enjoy it at our pace, we had time to fit in shows and a special dinner or two. My 70 something in-laws are planning a trip to explore Disney this February after hearing about our wonderful vacation there.
Have breakfast with Mickey Explore various countries in Epcot. Dine at exotic locals. Take in a show. The possibilities for fun are endless.
Why don't you make your next vacation a Disney vacation!

Here is a small sample of the great fun we had as a family....

Disney - all it's cracked up to be?

I'm not a huge fan of Disney. I've been to the park in Anaheim when I was younger, and had a good time overall, but in general I think Disney represents much of what is wrong with America. Disney fits right in with McDonald's, Walmart, and the corporate culture of waste, excess, and greed that defines our culture. It does cater to children, and bring them delight and imagination - but it is fake, artificial, and gives children and adults experience with an empty sort of joy that is based not on reality but on escapism. The facade of Disney's entertainment is no more real than the false front buildings that defined our country's expansion westward and created the continent-wide culture of greed that we now live in. Do I sound jaded? Sure, but I'm not the only one. Links to others who really don't like Disney are below:
