Real Magic

“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” - Walt Disney

Hello. My name is Miranda and I’m a Disney-holic…

When I was a little girl, I knew what I wanted to be… I wanted to work for Walt Disney.  There are pictures of me in kindergarten, holding my “What I Want to Be When I Grow Up” poster, complete with pictures of Mickey Mouse.  Through the years, I had the standard naysayers who told me a little girl from Kentucky wasn’t going to work for Disney. Then, of course, there was the shocking realization that I would never be able to work for Walt Disney as he died in 1966 (minor details).  However, I was not deterred!

When I was 20 years old, I fulfilled my dream by working as a Cast Member at Walt Disney World.  I spent a semester in Orlando, Florida, as a part of the Disney College Program.  It was an amazing experience, but after a few months I returned home to finish my degree in psychology.

Somewhere along the line, I got wrapped up in “adulting.”  I went on to get my graduate degree in psychology and began working in psychiatric research. I worked on academic papers and took extra classes for fun (yes, I know I'm weird). I enjoyed these things, but nothing seemed to hold my interest as much as my love of Disney.

About a year ago, I was given the amazing opportunity to become a Travel Agent, specializing in Disney.  As a part of this adventure, I began my first foray into blogging, writing about random Disney things that came to my mind.  As time has gone on, I have gained a more specific focus to my writing - exploring Disney as an adult.  For me, Disney represents a world where the good guy always wins, the calories in food don’t count, and smiles are genuine. It may not be reality, but in 42 square miles of central Florida (or California or Paris or...), I find real magic.
