[QUOTE=beatman23;975933]I have been going to disney since 1973 (I was 5 then). I think the magic is the anticipation of riding the monorail to the park with my kids now… Everything about our time on property is magical… I love going to our ADR’s, riding the transportation, walking the grounds… ALL Disney really… I am certain that I feel this way because, as was stated at the beginning or this thread, everyone there is on holiday![/QUOTE]
I think part of the magic is just the fact that you can’t really explain what the magic is. When we go there, we’re just so happy the whole time. The atmosphere, surroundings, characters, and just seeing all the other happy families makes Disney magical. I’ve joked that it’s the only place you can go, open your wallet, and spend, spend, spend- smiling the whole time!
I noticed that was really missing at Universal Orlando. Both parks were very nice, clean, and had a great atmosphere. The big difference was the fact that the ‘magic’ just wasn’t there.
