Where Did My Love of Walt Disney World Begin?

Where did my love of Disney World begin? I’d love to tell you that my parents took me to Walt Disney World every year but that wouldn’t be true. My parents did not like theme parks so we never went as a family. In fact, our family vacations consisted of long drives which generally ended with us visiting relatives. I might add that these long drives did not include DVD entertainment centers, Ipods, or even Gameboys! In fact, I don’t even recall wearing a seat belt! My kids think I grew up in the dark ages because we actually looked out the windows!
So where did my love of Disney World begin? I know exactly when… In 1985, I was fortunate enough to go to Walt Disney World with the high school band! Thus began my love for all things Disney! The band had the privilege of marching through the streets of the Magic Kingdom. The Magic Kingdom and Epcot were so far away from my life in Paris, Texas. I was amazed by the wonder and magic of the greatest place on Earth!
Now I’m fortunate to arrange trips for groups of students who get to discover the wonder of Disney on trips just like mine! In fact, a local high school band will be going to Walt Disney World in April. For many of these students it will be their first time to discover the magic!
Disney has so much more to offer youth groups today! There are opportunities to Perform, Play, Celebrate and Learn. Given the right environment and the right opportunity, young people can reach some pretty amazing heights. Disney believes accomplishment should be encouraged and rewarded. And that's exactly what Disney Youth Group Programs are all about — offering youth groups unique opportunities to come together at the Walt Disney World® Resort.
