The TRUTH about me and Disneyland.
By: Whitney Zufelt
The thing about me and Disneyland, is that it represents happiness to me. Happy memories with my family, happy memories with my husband...
The first time I ever went to Disneyland was when I was 2
I told my mom that I wanted to go to Disneyland after finishing potty training
So we went and I peed my pants on The Haunted Mansion... classic
(my mom likes to remind me of this every time I go)
But I remember bits and pieces of that trip
I remember the mickey sweatsuit my mom had to buy me
I remember driving on autopia...
And then we didn't go back for a little while
You see when I was younger, a few bad things happened to me and my family
And they kept being brought back to remembrance until I was about 9 (having to do with my biological father... who is probably reading this post the same as you all are)
Then finally when I was 9 his parental rights got terminated
And my mom and my sister took me to Disneyland to celebrate
My mom and I have gone back pretty much every year since...
Disneyland is full of magic if you have the attitude to see it
I mean come on... Devin and I got to be (kind of) on Modern Family there!
So judge me if you must about my Disneyland obsession (although I never plan on owning a Disney jean jacket... and I don't wear anything Disney outside of the park EVER) but Disneyland is a happy place, a place to celebrate, a place to forget the bad things that have happened in my life, and place that lets me become like a little child...
And that's the truth about me and Disneyland
