Why Disney World Is My Favorite Place On Earth

Sometimes we need a little magic.

Disney World is truly the most magical place on Earth, but why is that? What makes it so amazing to me is the nostalgia that is everywhere you look. I watched Disney every single day growing up. It was more than part of my childhood, in most ways, it was my childhood. My family loved Disney, and it was something that we could share together, whether we were watching Mulan for the millionth time on VHS or singing "Part of Your World" in the car on the way to school. The first time I went to Disney World, I was five years old, so of course, I loved it, but it was not as enjoyable as going when I was older and able to fully appreciate every little detail used to make the park magical.

The magic begins before you even get to the park. I love picking out fast passes and planning the trip. Then, when I'm finally getting close to the destination and see "Disney World" signs everywhere... I get butterflies every time. There is truly nothing that can compare to the adrenaline of walking into the park and seeing the castle for the first time. It takes my breath away every time. I could just stare at it the whole trip, but there is so much to see, so I just take a thousand pictures to savor the moment.

I love riding my favorite rides, Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean as many times as I can. I cannot get enough of either one. The spooky feel on the Haunted Mansion is so realistic, you truly feel like you're in a haunted house with ghosts.

I love going to the different parks, and how each one has their own personality. But, the Magic Kingdom is my favorite, with Hollywood Studios being a close second. This brings me to another reason why Disney World is the best, Star Wars! I am a huge Star Wars fan, so seeing one of my favorite franchises brought to life is so awesome.

Also, the characters are the greatest. You get the same feeling as if you were meeting a real-life celebrity when getting an autograph or photo taken with your favorite characters. I know the kids love meeting characters, but to be honest, I am sure the adults love it just as much, if not more– I know I do. But, my little sister definitely enjoys meeting the characters, especially when they are really friendly, which is the majority of the time. The characters and cast members generally go out of their way to give you a memorable moment with them, even if it only lasts a few minutes.

My favorite part of Disney World has to be all of the little details sprinkled everywhere you look. There is so much detail and effort put into everything. That is the most magical part of Disney World to me. I feel as if I have been transported to a different world filled with magic where anything is possible. I could just walk around and take photos of everything, and usually, that is what I try to do. As we are walking, I am snapping quick pics so I can look at them when I am forced to go back to the real world.

But, unfortunately, all magic comes at a price. It is very expensive to go to Disney World, which is why I am not there every month. It takes a lot of time to save up enough money, but in the end, it does not disappoint.

Disney World is my favorite place, my happy place. I could live there. But I will settle for just visiting occasionally. The saddest feeling is when it is time to leave the park, but I always look forward to planning our next trip. There are always new attractions and even more things to look forward to the next time.

It is never goodbye, just see you real soon.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

5 Things You Need To Know Before You Watch 'Arrested Development' On Netflix

"Her?" Yes, she's an amazing show! (You'll get this joke after you watch the show).


"Arrested Development" is an award-winning sitcom that aired for three seasons on Fox beginning in 2003, and then was picked up by Netflix for a fourth season in 2013, and then again for a final season in 2018.

However, it seems to remain one of the world's most underrated and under-appreciated shows of all time. Although this article alone won't be enough to skyrocket the show to Netflix's top 10, I hope that it will open people's eyes to the value and quality of the show.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

Celebrities Stealing Designs From Small Fashion Labels Is NOT A Good Look, And They Need To Pay Up

When larger, more established figures or brands steal from lesser-known independent creators, they are taking opportunities away from these creators while also profiting from someone else's work and claiming it as their own.

Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B recently collaborated on their new single "WAP," with the music video also being released on Friday. Both Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B posted photos of themselves on Instagram to celebrate the premiere of "WAP." An independent designer quickly noticed that the rappers' matching tops were copies of a top she had designed last year.

7 Books That Are NOT In The Young Adult Genre That Will Change Your Life

Young Adult isn't the only genre that exists, so here are seven books that any book lover wanting to try something new will love.

One of the most popular genres in literature that everyone has read at least one book from is Young Adult fiction. Now, I personally can say that, in the past, I have been one of those people that only read from the YA section of the bookstore.
While there is absolutely nothing wrong with just reading one genre, it's good sometimes to venture out of your reading comfort zone into the other book genres of the literary world.

In a previous article, I discussed the importance and power of words. The perfect example of this is literature and its impact on the world. Books have always played a crucial part in human lives, from how we are able to expand our knowledge to how we pass our time.
