I have a sincere questions for you MW's. What is it about Disneyland that makes it so magical for you?

Remember that time in life when everything was possible? Love, magic, beating the bad guy, seeing something fantastic, being care free? That's the feeling Disneyland gives me. When I see the tip of the Matterhorn my insides light up and I feel like I'm 5 and good wins over evil, hope is abundant, happy endings happen. And that feeling is two-fold now. Because I'm not the only one who lights up at that mountain, Cannon sees it and I feel it in my heart of hearts, that true Disney magic. Thank God there is somewhere on this earth I can experience the joy and hope and love of life as a child does. - cynDOLEwhip  1175.5 #148 10:45AM
I feel just like Cyndelgrace does when I go. It takes me back to when I was a kid and I could act silly goofy and jumpy without a care in the world. - clarabelle87  194.2 #2068 8:41AM
when i was a kid, it was the only time we all got to spend quality time with each other as a family. we could only afford to go once every few years if we were lucky. now we go every chance we get :) - OhanaPhoto  5120.1 #24 9:51AM
My whole family would go as I was growing up. We had such fun. We would laugh and had no worries. Now every time I walk through that tunnel and see Main Street, I forget all my worries and I just feel this happiness!. - Sharkgrrl19  255.2 #1299 1:04PM
The CM, the characters, and of course the magic. :-) - mini_MINNIE  1140.1 #157 11:14PM
Aren't they amazing?? I appreciate even on the busiest days, they are always smiling! - abbeyroo68  184.8 #2187 8:35AM
I feel the same. Another thing that hit me was when I first found out I had celiacs, the head chef called me to tell me all the gluten free things they had. It meant so much to me that he took time out of his day for me. :) - abbeyroo68  184.8 #2187 10:33AM
It is a place where my childhood imagination becomes to life. Walt did an amazing job creating a place where I can escape reality....if only for a day. - KissDclown  1089.1 #167 10:47AM
These are great answers! I like hearing how so many of us can have such a deep love for a place and how these answers are so genuine!! - abbeyroo68  184.8 #2187 12:49PM
It's permission to be silly :) - Darlingwendi  1222.7 #140 12:53PM
it's one of the few places I feel truly happy. I get to be a little kid again and no one can judge me for crying during the rope drop or taking my first ride on peter ❀ - missgoofy  371.6 #614 1:44PM
I love having a reason and place to be a kid again!! :D - abbeyroo68  184.8 #2187 10:17PM
Growing up in the 60's (yeah, I'm old!) my access to Disney was limited - no VCRs, no Disney Channel, no Disney Store, no online access! I was lucky enough to have a gramma who would take me on Saturdays to see Disney movies and parents who would make several trips to DL every year. But that was it! My Happy Place was all things Disney! And that hasn't changed. Disney has encouraged me to imagine, believe and instilled in me a desire and love of the creativity that is possible. DL is one place I can go to feel inspired, toss away any sadness and just have fun. I suppose it's a combination of the wonderful memories I have, the nostalgia and the joy it brings me, and so many others. - Gia  802.0 #231 9:03AM
There is no age with Disney!! ;) I love your answe. I can relate in so many ways and it just hits a soft spot on me. Thank you for sharing this!! - abbeyroo68  184.8 #2187 10:58AM
I love the imagination. It's the one place that I won't be judged for using my imagination and just acting like a big kid! - Sharkgrrl19  255.2 #1299 11:03AM
Just magic. Can't really explain it but it's just there. - mightymike  272.8 #1140 11:20AM
I could list many many things. But what it really comes down to is when you arrive and walk through the turnstyle, then pass under the DLRR and into the Main Street Town Square, everything I love about Disney surrounds me. It is at that point the Magic happens there for me. - IMissDisney  1205.7 #144 11:28AM
Going to Disneyland around Christmastime makes me cry. The music, the lights, the snow in the park.....it's so magical! - abbeyroo68  184.8 #2187 9:52PM
