7 Ways Disney Can Brighten Your Not-So-Perfect World

Mickey Mouse

Whenever I am going through a difficult time in my life, one of the ways I can calm my fear, worry, or unhappy mood is to immerse myself in anything Disney.  I will watch Disney movies, play Disney music, watch family Disney vacation videos, plus youtube Disney vacation videos.   I will go online and check out all the new Disney merchandise.  There are many other ways I use Disney to calm or brighten up my mood.  Here are a few suggestions that may help anyone who is dealing with difficult circumstances.  I hope they will help you too.

1.  Disney Movies

There is nothing that compares to a large bowl of freshly popped popcorn, a soda, comfy clothes, and Disney movies.  Get your DVD player or other device and watch all the Disney movies that make you feel good or make you laugh.  You might even consider surrounding yourself with any Disney plush animals you may have.  It always feels good to have MIckey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy, or Pluto close by.

2.  Disney Trip Videos

I enjoy watching our Disney Trip Videos so much.  The memories from each trip is like stepping back in time.  It's like a virtual diary of moments in time when families are having so much fun together at a Disney theme park.  It is also a way to visually watch your children change from year to year, especially for those of us who have been traveling to Disney for many years.  My parents took my sister and I on a family trip to Disneyland from 1959-1969.  After that it was graduations, marriages, children, and Disneyland was forgotten for a while.  Later in our lives, Walt Disney World became our new Disney vacation destination. 

3.  Disney Youtube Videos

I really enjoy watching family trip videos on Youtube.  Seeing other families enjoying Disney as much as we do is so entertaining, and what's really fun is trying to find your family in other family videos.  Hey, you never know how many Disney guests have you in the background of their videos. There's a lot of forwarding, rewinding, and pausing, but it will be so worth it if you catch a glimpse of yourselves on someone else's video.  Most uploaded videos are dated, and if you were at Disney during the same period, who knows? 

4.  Disney Music

Tell "Alexa" to play Disney favorites while you read a Disney book.  There are so many books online about the history of "all things Disney", like biographies about Walt Disney himself, Disney theme parks, movies, resorts, and much more.  Or, just find Disney theme park loop music and relax while enjoying a refreshing cool or soothing hot drink.
