I know what you’re thinking: “Oh, great! Another Disney fan-blog… Just what we need!” Well, you’re not wrong. To be honest, this is more for me and my family than anything else. My hope is that my unique perspective will help to entertain and educate fellow Disney fans. I mean, we all think we are “unique”, right? Well, I believe there are a few traits that truly help me to bring a different view on the Disney experience:
- I’ve been an entertainer/writer/producer/director for almost my entire life. I enjoy the arts on a deep level, but I’ve also been on just about every side of crafting creative experiences. This is probably why I love Disney so much… because of their effort to create “magic” that helps us escape every day life. I have a degree in Musical Theatre from Belmont University and I’ve spent over a decade creating inspiring experiences week-in and week-out with my day job.
- I’m a ferocious researcher. Whether it’s hobbies, vacations, or what stapler to buy, I want to know every last detail about any endeavor in my life (the amount of time I’ve spent researching how to create a blog that doesn’t stink has been
a bit… WAY overboard). I know other Disney fans are just like me, so I hope to be there for you to help answer that question about how many steps it is from the dole-whip dispenser to the Volcano Pool at the Polynesian.
- While I am a dad, I’m really still a kid at heart. I don’t know… maybe it’s because I’m the “baby” of the family with three (much) older siblings, but I guess I just never really grew up. Ask my wife. I love being this way because it allows me to see things the way my kids do. There is no better place for that than Walt Disney World. I guess I should feel guilty about it, but I have some pretty good backup from a pretty smart guy:
So, there you have it. The Disney Dad Blog is off and running! I hope this becomes something that is worthwhile for many years to come. Maybe even one day I’ll have to change the name to The Disney GRANDAD Blog… Ok, let’s not put the cart before the horse!
Be on the lookout for a lot more content over the next days and weeks! In the meantime, would you mind heading over to Facebook and giving a “like”? Maybe even spread the word to some friends! https://www.facebook.com/thedisneydadblog/
