When I was in France, I refused (consciously) to spend a day in Disneyland Paris, because I was desperately hoping to visit the “original” Disneyland in California someday … and to feel the “real” magic in “The Happiest Place on Earth”!

As a child, I used to watch the Disney movies each time I had the chance to. Actually, it used to be my favourite kind of reality and as somebody, born in a communist state, dreaming about visiting Disneyland was kind of bold but unrealistic activity. As a child, I used to dream. I used to ask my parents about how the future will turn out for us.

I used to ask if I will ever visit Disneyland in my life… For the 80’s and 90’s kids from Eastern Europe, the Disney movies and characters were something more than just some fairy tales and magical stories. For me, the Disney World was a symbol of freedom and hope… A hope that the future will bring us a world full of colour and joy.

On Friday, 24th of June and 24 years later, I was standing at the entrance of Disneyland California and I knew – I had been working hard enough. And this was one of those exceptional moments when I felt proud of myself and thankful, that my parents never set some borders to my dreams. So happy, that I never heard “No”, “Be Realistic”, “Probably not” …

 

And of course, I’m not having only Disneyland in my mind… Dreams are something magical. Dreams motivate. Dreams encourage. Dreams make us better people. Dreams are good for our health and spirit. Please encourage your children and yourself to dream! It costs nothing and it takes us one step further …
