I think most of us live in the magic of Disney and the joy it brings to every child around the world. The magic stayed on our hearts and grew further as the year passes by. The music of Disney movies provided in us life lessons, inspirations and message of hope. The OST of these movies has been on our lullaby when we were a child and now a track on our favorite playlist. A music that proved "A Whole New World" can be created with Disney.

Also, I Love Disney because it makes you believe on infinite possibilities. It creates a positive aura that dream do come true and be optimistic as you walk through your daily challenges in life. In any ages, in any walks of life, Disney never fails in rekindling the children in ourselves where sadness and pain goes away with such simple characters that change our lives forever. Simple and hackneyed as it may seem but this is the reality of the magic of Disney that’s why I love him even I’m already on my silver years.

As I grew older, I promised to myself that I will be flying to Disney and experience the magic myself. Fortunately, 2 years ago I was able to fulfill my long-term dream when my family and I planned our first-ever trip outside the country to visit Hong Kong Disneyland for my birthday. I even booked my stay at Disney Hollywood Hotel to complete my Disney experience.

I'm already 23 that time but still I enjoyed every second of it. My parents who were already around at their golden years also was ecstatic and happy like a 5-year-old kid when they entered the happiest place on the planet. The music around, the mascot greeting you in every corner and the magnificent rides was just phenomenal. To describe them in words here is just an understatement to describe the feeling. The most spectacular moment was the fireworks display which is coordinated to the Disney songs that touched our lives. I was in tears at that moment just seeing the magnificent experience and ensured I captured it on my camera as a remembrance. How I wish more Filipinos can visit Disneyland and feel the magic within...

However, I was deeply saddened last year when all my pictures and videos during my visit was lost as my HD was corrupted. I really prayed that there could be a way to at least save those pictures as I don't want to lose the moment when I was there...it was like losing a "Part of Your World" during that time. I don't know when I'll be going back to Disneyland and re-create the memories I used to have during my stay. I don't have the money and time to fly out and visit Disney again and how I just wish there's a Disneyland here in the Philippines...
