As a parent, I take magic wherever I can find it. On the rare occasion my kids listen the first time, I'm quick to call it magic. Those five minutes I'm all caught up on laundry? Yeah, that's pretty magical, too. But real magic — the kind that creates lasting memories and unlocks real heart joy — can be a little harder for a busy family to come by.
There are always school projects, upset tummies, or almost forgotten bake sales. There are carpools, stubborn grass stains, lost jackets, and soccer schedules. But if you're lucky, there are also smiles, snuggles, and the opportunity to recapture the magic of family fun on a much-needed Disney vacation.
Be my guest and take a ride through the 53 thoughts I had on our last trip to the most magical place on Earth.
