ORWEN: Greetings to all the sweet little Mice Chat ducklings out there! Us cauldron girls wanted to chat with you about something that's been on our minds a lot lately.
ORDDU: Having been regular posters on this site for several years, now, we've noticed something that makes us wonder what you all do to keep the magic going for you when you visit the various Disney theme parks that there are.
ORWEN: Sometimes it seems that we forget to leave the real world behind when we visit the happiest places on Earth. Even though Uncle Walt always encouraged guests to leave the real world behind when they entered his park, it seems that--over time--more and more guests are finding this harder and harder to do.
ORDDU: Getting bumped in the shins by a stroller or seeing excessively long lines for a favorite attraction can certainly make it more difficult for us all to enjoy the parks. But is there anything you do to try and focus on the magic instead of the tragic?
ORWEN: One comment we read on another site said that when they come to the Disney parks these days and see a character, all they think about is the underpaid employee inside instead of the actual character they're supposed to represent. That struck me as a very sad thing to be thinking about at the Happiest Place on Earth.
ORDDU: Other comments are equally discouraging from some who no longer see appealing attractions but who, instead, just see something fake that they enjoy being critical about. A lot of times it seems as though people, in general, have become too jaded for the Disney brand--although attendance is up--are people just coming through the turn styles regardless of the fact that they don't really care for the Disney magic? That seems difficult to believe--
ORWEN: --yet the many negative comments we read so often seem to support that idea.
ORDDU: The world has become a more frightening place as time goes on. Disney park attendance also seems to be growing more and more. Yet what do you do to make sure you don't lose the magic for yourselves while at the parks? Is it really becoming more and more difficult for you to accomplish such a thing?
ORWEN: I just hope I never grow up. I wanna' be young at heart like Peter Pan forever!
ORGOCH: Got a fountain a youth in yer back yard?
