The Realist’s Take

Listen folks, who needs fairy godmothers when Mickey is cookin’ up some magic for our bright young minds? Turning the tables around, Disney trades away the glass slippers for spectacular career goals, as this is definitely not a case of your average “happily ever after”. Here’s to appreciating Disney’s shift from sleeping beauties to soaring rockets, because if there’s something we’ve learned, it’s that ‘dreaming’ is way more fun when Disney’s involved! And let’s not trivialize that admirable initiative of celebrating Dr. King’s Day with a noble cause of inspiring the dreamers. Bet we’re just one fairy dust sprinkle away from having an all-new theme park – The Disney Dreamers’ World!
