Whether you’re a die-hard Disney fan or just caught a couple of Disney movies while growing up, nobody can deny the sheer magic of the world that Walt Disney has created. By far the most famous brand in the history of time, adults and children around the world have long been captivated by the stories, animations, and characters that Disney has brought us.
So, what exactly is it that makes Disney such a well-loved institution? We’ve given it considerable thought, and we think it’s all down to the reasons below:
The legendary Disney characters
Bella, Pumba, Jaffar, Sebastian, Zazu, Elsa – the list goes on and on and on. It’s really the awesome characters that Disney has consistently managed to create over the years that have made everyone fall in love with the world of Disney. The best part is that so many great Disney artefacts, collectables, and apparel items enable us to recreate the magic of Disney in our homes. For instance, The World of Miss Mindy Disney figurines are beautifully crafted and allow us to bring our most beloved Disney characters home.
Disney movies have the best soundtracks.
Like the movies or not, there’s no denying that the soundtracks of Disney movies are some of the most beloved of our time. Who can forget crooning to ‘A Whole New World’ or bopping their head to ‘Hakuna Matata’? The iconic status of songs like these is helped by how beautifully sung they are and how swiftly they transport us back to our childhood. And don’t get us started on ‘Let It Go’!
Disney World is the happiest place on Earth!
Part of the appeal f Disney is that once you’ve finished watching one of their movies, you can continue to immerse yourself in the magical world by visiting their home. Those of you who have been fortunate enough to visit Euro Disney or Disney World will know they’ve succeeded in creating ‘the happiest place on Earth’.
The nostalgia factor
So many of us grew up on classic Disney films like Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, and The Lion King. The magic of Disney lies in the fact that these are films that we enjoyed in our childhood but can now just as easily enjoy as adults. The way they are written means they appeal to just about everybody, and they make us feel nostalgic for our younger, more carefree days.
The inevitable ‘happily ever after’.
Disney films always end on a happy note. The characters face their struggles throughout the story; good always prevails over evil. There’s a comfort in that aspect, as it helps us escape the trials and tribulations of everyday life. After all, who doesn’t love a happy ending?
