Keepin the Disney Magic Alive

Welcome to those of you joining me from Joanna and her Amazing Technicolor Interwebs and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 2nd stop on our Magical Blogorail Peach.

This month we were asked How do you keep the Disney magic alive when you've still got a TON of days before your next trip? As I thought of many different things to keep the magic alive being that I'm 1,000 miles away from the parks, here are some of the things I do in the time leading up to the trip.

I think First on my list and it has always been the smile on my face when I'm not at the Parks is my Disney Pictures.

As I have done many times before, looking at my pictures from years past keeps me in the spirit especially, when I have let's say a year of time till the next trip. For our family we start planning the next trip the minute we get home from the one that just ended. We talk about what we might have missed and how that particular "to do" moves to the beginning of the list for next time. Like this last trip we couldn't get on the Rock 'n Roller Coaster because the wait was very long and all the Fast Passes were gone, we had gotten other Fast Passes first and said we would take our chances with getting on the Rock 'n Roller Coaster later.

Another thing that keeps us going is the next time "ToDo List" that keeps the spirit alive.  It is so much fun making the next trip list and then we all compare notes to see what we want to do.

Another great way to keep the magic alive is watching all your favorite Disney Movies. Some of our favorites include Cars, Cinderella, Mulan, Home on the Range, Lady and the Tramp and Chicken Little, I could go on and on.. Watching the movies reminds of us of the attractions, parks and characters we have just meet and experienced.
