When I tell people what I do for a living, I get one of two reactions: “That’s a real job?” and “That’s a real job!!?”
It may not seem like there’s a difference — but those exclamation points are important. You see, the first response is usually accompanied by side eye and disbelief, and not in the excited way. In more of the “Who would watch/read that?,” or the “Are there enough people that even care about Disney World for that to even be a thing?” type of way.
Which, if we’re being perfectly honest, I’ve asked myself the same questions. How is this a job? Why do so many people care about Disney? Why is the Magic Kingdom the most popular theme park in the world when it doesn’t have the biggest thrills or newest technology (even compared to other Disney parks)? Why do people spend thousands of dollars and go back year after year?
Why does Walt Disney World matter?
So no, Walt Disney World isn’t the most important thing to worry about while the world continues to navigate this unprecedented time. And in the grand scheme of things, it doesn’t really matter when they reopen.
But when the time is right I’ll be there, ears on, ready for a little magic — and a lot of joy.
