What about you dad, hope your ok. Finally after five years of saving my family are flying from Ireland over to Disney. My wee nieces are 4 & 5 and I have them so hyped up about the magic and surprises that awaits them. Would you have any tips about making dreams come true, little surprises I could get them, or any wee special things I could do that would reinforce the magic and belief that all children should have.

Plz I would be so grateful

Dad's everywhere you look Answer


I've got start out by saying thanks for stopping by my site. I don't think I've talked to anyone from Northern Ireland before.

Walt Disney World really is a magical place. It's amazing. Yes, I say things like that all the time. But it's really true. The magic starts as soon as you pass under the sign at the entrance. You can see just by the change in the landscape that something is different. Gone is the hustle and bustle of the city and you drive into a land of beauty and wonder.

The magic gets better when you arrive at your magical Disney Resort. Depending on which one you choose you could be in anything from a hotel with 60 foot tall big wheels to a Polynesian paradise. Each of the hotels is so special that you could spend days just touring hotels.

But, you're probably not going to Disney World to tour hotels. You want to see the real magic. That means visiting the parks. That's where the magic truly happens. Each park has it's on special magical touches. On top of the incredible rides they all have special shows, special decorations and magical cast members who's job is to make your "wee nieces" dreams come true.

The magical touches in things like the Talking Trash Can in the Magic Kingdom, and all the entertainment in the World Showcase at Epcot. Or you might want to check out the Christmas store in Disney Hollywood Studios or the petting area in Animal Kingdom.

Of course it's hard to beat the Magic of Cinderella Castle. One of my favorite memories of all time is the memory of watching Mrs. Mom's Mom when she saw the castle for the first time (check it out on the blog). Lots of people have similar reactions.

It's really hard for me to give you tips about making special memories for your nieces because I don't really know them. But I can say this, what they remember will be directly impacted by what you project. If you are seeing wonder and magic at every turn (and you can), then they will. If you have a miserable time (and you can), they will too.

It sounds like you are off to a great start on making your trip a wonderful experience. Keep filling those girls with tales of magic and wonder. When you get to Disney World look for beauty and the amazing things that are at every turn.

Dad's Bottom Line

Michelle, you and the girls will have a ball. Disney World is an amazing place full of magic and wonder. You don't have to go out and spend a fortune to create magical memories, there's plenty there for free. Just take the time to stop and take it all in.
