When we talk to our friends and family about our love for Disney, one of the first and quite prevalent questions we hear is "Why Disney World"? People are generally surprised that we are so attached to the Disney parks, the resorts, and the many attractions and experiences within the Walt Disney World Resort. There are many reasons our families choose to spend their vacations year after year at Disney, as opposed to other destinations around the world. We will break down a few in this post, with the hope that you too will understand our affection of the parks, and our love for Disney in general.
3 Reasons we think Disney World is one of the best places to spend your vacation!
1. Disney offers an all-inclusive vacation experience that is unmatched in the Orlando area.
One of the first reasons, we often recommend Disney World is the all-inclusive vacation experiences that Disney offers. You are officially on vacation from the moment you board the airplane to the time you land back in your home city. Once, in Orlando, Disney's Magical Express service will whisk you away to your home resort and magically provide your luggage directly to your hotel room without the need to make any stops at the airport itself. Once you are on Disney property, the all-inclusive spirit continues as you can utilize the many options of the Disney Dining Plans (pre-paid meal plans that give you credits to use to purchase meals and snacks while on Disney property) and park tickets to accommodate the way your family vacations. Over the years, Disney has perfected the guest experience, and the many cast members throughout the Disney property will go above and beyond should you need any additional assistance along the way. Staying on property at a Disney resort gives you a fully immersive experience into the movies from our childhood, and let's us experience the movies our children love like never before.

Next on the list is theming and the overall feel of Disney resort properties. Disney has something for everyone. From hotels themed in sports, music, and movies, to the more upscale contemporary and Polynesian theming. Guests at any budget level can find clean, comfortable, and spacious accommodations to meet any party size. Whether you are looking to immerse yourself in a classic Disney story like that of The Little Mermaid or The Lion King, or if you are looking for something more sophisticated like that of the turn of the century boardwalk or elegance of Victorian surroundings, Disney goes out of it's way to put their magical touches on each resort.
3. Only at Disney can you really sit back and enjoy time as a family without the stresses of everyday life.
Lastly, when we think of our time spent at Disney, we think of our kids smiling as they eat their first Mickey ice cream bar, or the first princess makeover our daughters had at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique in Cinderella's Castle. Only so often do you get to see the innocence and wonder of being that young again. There are very few moments and places where you can spend quality time with your family that don't include the stresses and negativity of everyday life and only at Disney can we take time to enjoy the magic and adventure that life has to offer. No matter how old or young you are there is something for everyone in Disney World and everyone can feel the magic that surrounds the Happiest Place on Earth!
