Why Disney? Part 1: Intro to Magic

Those who know me know my Disney obsession well.  It was probably what led me into the travel industry in the first place, and started at or about age 6.  People simply shake their heads as I listen to Disney park music at home, read guidebooks as if they were best-selling novels, and put new editions of travelogues on reserve at the library (as if that many people were looking for them anyway).  I take in Disney blogs like other read The New York Times and fill my house with assorted Disneyania including my own personal Mickey ears.

If you consider a FastPass a form of payment for favors (or if you even know what that means!) you may be in my Disney dark-ride boat.  If not (or like some friends you think Disney is part of the EVIL EMPIRE), here is an intro to a new series of articles.  Over the next few posts, I'll try to go over some of the great things that Disney has to offer and why you might want to give it a try.  Start here, read on, and see what keeps me and people like me coming back again and again.
