Maybe it’s because I didn’t make it to Disneyland until I was 13 and didn’t appreciate it (let’s face it, it’s an awkward age for anything new), but I seem to be having a delayed Disney thing happening because the 25-year-old me LOVES the new commercials running for the Disney resorts. In the words of Liz Lemon, “I want to go to there.”
In the commercials, families are deliriously happy, kids are smiling, people are running through the warm surf on some distant beach, and everyone is enjoying themselves and those around them. Family vacations can be a great thing, and Disney shows us how they should be done. They also happen to feature everyone wearing custom t-shirts made for their family vacation, and while Disney did not get their shirts printed with us… they should have! And there ends my quick love affair with Disney. We almost had it all.
What is the lesson I am trying to teach, you ask? Well, if you’re having a family vacation this year, try drawing inspiration from the patented magic of Disney and think about creating your own vacation t-shirts.
