The Realists Take

If there’s one thing to learn from Magnolia Jackson’s incredibly special 106th birthday celebration at Disney World, it’s that you’re never too old to rock mouse ears and embrace your inner child. The woman whose life has spanned multiple generations decided to “come and play” at Disney, proving that age is just a number when you’re young at heart. They say the magic of Disney can make your dreams come true and apparently, they were not kidding. Mickey traded in his sorcerer’s hat for a drum major outfit and officially upgraded his status from friendly mouse to ultimate birthday wish granter. Meanwhile, EPCOT’s Flower & Garden Festival is blooming with greater popularity, now that it carries the Magnolia seal of approval. Oh, and we can’t forget about Princess Tiana. Her meet and greet is now a must-see birthday attraction. Whatever your age, keep the magic alive folks. Disney magic, now available in senior citizens’ edition!
