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.
People who love Disney will tell you there is something about the place that is simply undefinable. I believe the thing that defies definition is how the ultimate in pre-packaged repeatable mass-market entertainment can create so many spontaneous and (dare I spout the word) "magical" moments. It really does seem to work that way, though. I know that my wife and I often get more nostalgic looking at those pictures of our son at Disney than any other family photos.
Convincing people (especially those without kids) to take their first trip to the parks is like asking them to sit down and eat the largest brussel sprout from the county fair. There are always a million excuses and reasons why they know they won't like it. Like so many people, those who complain the loudest are those who often catch my addiction to an extreme degree.
