  • Odd Thoughts of Disney

    Something I often do when between trips and missing WDW is to imagine guests there at that particular time doing things I enjoy.

    For instance, a bright sunny morning after breakfast can have me thinking of people hustling off for MK rope drop, how fresh and excited they all are for the start of their Disney day.

    A chilly, foggy fall day reminds me of the rotten weather we've experienced in November. I wonder if WDW guests are having an UN-Florida day like ours were.

    Fixing dinner brings images of the open kitchen chefs swiftly preparing orders and of people enjoying dinner at a restaurant where we've had lovely meals. So much so that I can almost smell what they're eating.

    Even when I awake in the night, I'm reassured by the thought that somebody somewhere in a Disney Park is having a magical time.

    It's weird, but once I heard that parks were shutting down worldwide, I felt abandoned. It was as if all those people enjoying being at Disney had been caretaking, keeping the magic alive and waiting for my return to WDW. Suddenly, they weren't there doing that--anywhere in the world. It almost felt like Disney had gone comatose, or even worse, was no longer there.

    It feels better knowing that my caretakers of Disney have been reviving the magic already in Shanghai and Hong Kong and will soon be bringing it back to life in the USA.

    I've missed them.

    I had similar feelings, and when I learned that the zookeepers were still at work that made me feel so much better.

      Me too! Those precious creatures need to be taken care of extra special, especially those white rhinos.

      I am so glad the keepers are tending to all of them, but you know I'm most happy that they are watching out for the giraffes.

    I love that you do that and it just goes to show how different we are all. I don't do that at all and in fact I can't bear to think of people in Disney parks enjoying themselves, as it makes me feel homesick for our second home. I really hate it when large groups of friends are in Disney together and are posting photos on Facebook, as it makes me feel so left out. I do agree though that now that some of the parks are open, I feel much happier - it's a small slice of normality in a very strange world.

        I don't think like that. Instead I look for signs of Disney here where I live. Like Mickey icons on my street, well actually they are man holes covers but there are 3 of them that look to me like a Mickey head. There is a Ford dealership not too far from me, whose initials are GF. Yes, I see that as Grand Floridian.

        But I don't think that is Odd thoughts of Disney. I think it is just Disney Normal!
