Is there anyway to discribe the Disney experience to a non Disney lover? My boss thinks I should go with someone other than my grandchildren so "you can just go from ride to ride". She'd think I was crazy if I tell her I mainly go to see the shows and all my Disney friends. Why do you go to Disney?

I tell people that Disney is about the MAGIC. Yes, the rides are great, the shows are great, and we love the characters. It's the whole experience though. From the moment you step foot on Disney property, you just feel that you are in a special place. It's a sad thing to not understand (and love) the magic of Disney. - BagGal  314.5 #25 10:01AM
Could not have said it better myself. But, you forgot one thing... THE FOOD!! Haha - mrsincredible  1115.7 #6 10:31AM
Omgsh!!! How did I forget the FOOD?!?! My must-try-FOOD list is longer than my must-ride list!! Haha!! - BagGal  314.5 #25 10:51AM
Haha!! I can't wait to take pictures of all the food!! - mrsincredible  1115.7 #6 10:52AM
That is, right before I eat it!! Haha - mrsincredible  1115.7 #6 10:53AM
LOL is it embarrassing i almost cried reading your response? - Boardwalkgirl  55.9 #100 1:55PM
Girl, we all get it!! :) I was teary-eyed during our last trip when I first saw Cinderella in the Electrical Parade!! - BagGal  314.5 #25 3:53PM
Totally agree with all of you! Some people say you going again? What is there to see year after year? Some have no idea, and some do but are not addicted! I tell people it is Disney world and it truly is a world in its self! I go with my grandkids because I wouldn't have it any other way. They are the joys of my life and if I can put a smile on their face it puts joy in my heart. I live seeing Disney through their eyes! Then my husband and I go by ourselves once a year and we stroll the parks and shops see the shows and parades relax at some nice restraunts and around the pool and just enjoy each other and our passion for Disney. Have a great day - mmddgp  792.2 #8 1:35PM
I don't understand the ppl who go who are not addicted...i know many of them and i don't get it!! If they haven't been there before to experience it,then i might be more forgiving...but if they've been there and aren't addicted to it...what kind of foolishness is that??? Lol..i just don't get those ppl... - mickeynme  173.9 #51 1:44PM
I know I think the same thing. How can you not like anything about it? - mmddgp  792.2 #8 2:05PM
You can't describe it, you have to experience it. It's a magical feeling you can count on experiencing all over again every time you return! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1259.6 #4 1:39PM
I don't think there is an adequate way to explain the magic to a non Disney person. - ally  509.0 #17 10:16AM
Because my grandparents went in 1955 when DL opened. They took my mom every year, they went with me when I was little. Grandpa passed in 2006 but great grandma still goes with my girls!!! It is in our blood!! ;) - Deppsfan  37.7 #121 10:55AM
How wonderful! I tell my son in law that if he has to push around in a wheelchair I promise I'll still be smiling - lala03  76.5 #84 12:13PM
That's push me - lala03  76.5 #84 12:14PM
It is wondeful! She is 82 and we do push her in her wheel chair but she loves to go. We always go on TOT and a little girl in front of us in line asked me way I was forcing her to go on. I told the girl with a straight face, she was forcing me!! Lol. You should have seen the little girl's face...priceless! ;) - Deppsfan  37.7 #121 5:36PM
Don't think there's a way to tell a non Disney person . When you become a Disney person , it becomes part of you !!! We go to just get away , relax , & soak up that magical atmosphere !!!!!! - skcanfield  551.2 #14 10:56AM
Remembering Pretty Woman what Richard says about the opera - lala03  76.5 #84 3:57AM
Atmosphere. FOOD. I just love it. I can't explain it. I will work triple time to make a trip happen. There's no place like Disney. ( home) - 5disneylovers  1144.4 #5 1:19PM
The atmosphere,the music,the smells....and FOOD FOOD FOOD!!! :D - mickeynme  173.9 #51 1:26PM
