Where Dreams Really do Come True
Walt Disney World is celebrating a “Year of a Million Dreams”. The main objective of this celebration named “Where Dreams Come True” is to surprise unsuspecting guests with wonderful experiences to make their Disney dreams come true.
I would like to tell you about my families experience during this magical time.
My girls and myself decided to visit the Disney Hollywood Studios and set off early in the day as we love to see all the attractions in this park and wanted to have a full day there, and stay for the Fantasmic show in the evening.
For our first ride of the day we decided to go on the “Backlot tour” There were a group of about 20 people and as we waited in small area to be seated onto our “tour tram” one of the Disney cast members called us to pay attention and said she had an announcement to make. We were all wondering what was happening and then the Disney person in charge announced that we had all been selected to take part in their “Year of a Million Dreams” and that we were all going to be awarded a magic fast pass. We all gave a big cheer and whistles and there was lots of hugging and smiling faces. It would give us fast pass entry to all the major attractions in the Hollywood Studios, but was only valid for that day. We were all handed a credit card type pass, with a cord to hang around our neck.
The girls were so excited, you would think it was Walt Disney himself who handed out those passes, and I know that the memory of the excitement of that moment will stay with them forever.
It was a magical feeling to know that we had been lucky enough to be part of the “Where Dreams Come True” celebration and we made good use of the passes throughout the day. We still have the passes and are treasured in our Disney souvenir box.
Also there are many other “Dreams” being given away, one of them being for a family picked at random to spend the night in the castle at the Magic Kingdom. I know how fantastic it made us feel to be selected to get a pass, so I cannot imagine how ecstatic the lucky family who gets to stay in Cinderella’s castle will feel. What a dream come true as I cannot think of a more magical experience for any family.
All you have to do is wish upon a star……… and then, maybe, your dreams will come true.
