It's always a good day for a Disney kind of day, so lets pack the Magic essentials into every moment. Here's how you can start living the Disney life everyday even if you can't move to Florida!
I don't know about you but I am always ready to head to Disney. On extra hard days and just plain old normal days, my husband and I find ourselves dreaming of the next magical vacation where we abandon our cares, let go of stress and feel the heartbeat of all things held together by Pixie Dust.

The reality is we have jobs, school, a budget and all the responsibilities of adulting. We’ve built a life we love, however, it is in a land far far away from the Disney World bubble. So, we have set out to put Disney in our everyday. This is our list of just how to do that! The good news is it won’t cost you a thing but it will make a marked Disney improvement to your day.
(1) YOU NEED A SMILE: Smiling is one of those things we find ourselves doing at just the thought of Disney, but no doubt the second we embark on the journey towards the magic an uncontrollable grin breaks out on our faces. From that moment on, we are happy faces all around for the length of our stay. So, when you’re back home and doing your daily life, remember to smile. Find happiness in the simple things and remember to find the joy around you. Remember you’re never fully dress without a smile.
(2) YOU NEED A HOPE: Every Disney movie I have ever seen is built around one thing, and that is HOPE that things will get better. No matter the odds, no matter the difficulty there’s always HOPE. Don’t leave home without it … and by home, yes, I mean Disney! Keep your hope even when others throw in the towel.
(3) YOU NEED TO WHISTLE WHILE YOU WORK: Look, work is a part of most of our lives. Everyone has those stressful days and moments, but you can look at your work as a job or you can look at it as an opportunity. Each day you will come into contact with people that you can impact with some Disney cheer. Take the Disney Cast Members for example … I have always loved how they politely assist me with my adventure. They often are standing in the blistering heat and rain while enduring the crowds day after day. They never miss an opportunity to wish me a magical day. I expect it when I am around Disney cast members. I want people to expect that from me too. I want them to know that when I am working at home or on the job they can expect me to whistle while I work and find the joy in it.
(4) YOU NEED A DREAM: My advice is to always be on an adventure! Always plan for and prepare your life for something exciting. There’s magic all around us and exploring helps you find it. Even if dreaming looks like saving $1.00 a day towards a get-a-way, take that step towards your dream!
(5) YOU NEED TO SHARE: Share your excitement, your passions, your love and happiness and help those around you. Just like Walt Disney! Oh how sad it would have been had he kept all his joy, hopes, dreams and diligence for just himself. Instead, He shared them with all of us. You can make a difference in someone’s day today … Just give the magic away. "Remember, you're the one who can fill the world with sunshine."
