  • Question of the Day 11/24/21

    Happy Disney Wednesday, everyone!

    Do you recall what “got you hooked” on all things Disney?

    I remember watching the Wonderful World of Disney on television when I was a kid. I just loved it all, but especially the music. The music still speaks to me these days, too.

    Every Sunday night watching the Wonderful World of Disney as a family. I always enjoyed the nature programs.
    That might sound boring, but I think the boring stuff is the stuff I remember the most.

      I was watching Walt Disney Presents on Sundays when I was young. And Mickey Mouse Club on Saturday mornings. It was a Disney weekend.

        I didn’t have TV growing up, it I received records as gifts and loved listening to them. Then I went to Disneyland as a young teenager and that got me. It was Walt who imprinted on my DNA and his perseverance and passion..

          I remember watching The Wonderful World of Disney as a kid but I don’t really recall growing up with a passion for Disney. I don’t even think I knew DisneyLand or DisneyWorld were real places. My parents never went anywhere on vacation so I didn’t even know what a vacation was. Then Tom suggested going to DisneyWorld for our honeymoon when I was 19. It was the first time I had been anywhere. That was in 1981 and it was just the Magic Kingdom then but I was hooked.

            My parents took me and my sisters to Disney in 1985. I don’t remember too much, but I must’ve loved it because that was the start of my Disney obsession. I remember asking my parents all the time to go back and they finally gave in in 1991. I guess the rest is history because I’ve been on several trips since then.

              I'm another who remembers watching The Wonderful World of Disney. But seeing Mary Poppins and Bambi in the theater sealed the deal.

                  I was born in 1971, so grew up in that 20'ish year time period that there wasn't Disney on tv. I went to Disneyland with my mom a couple of times when I was young, once as a teen with my stepdad's sister, and also with my dad. I was a late bloomer where Disney addiction is concerned. And while I'd always enjoyed going, it wasn't until after my maternal grandmother died in September 2004 that I became an obsessed Disney addicted freak. I'm not sure why my grandmother's death flipped that switch but it did.

                    For me, it was two things - firstly Eeyore, which came from a love of the donkey who lived in our field where my parents live and secondly, it was the 1987 trip I took with my parents to Disney World. I just remember being in Epcot, in particular, and thinking "I could happily stay here forever and never leave".
