Melissa: I’m thankful that Disney allows me to keep magic and wonder in my adult life.

Disney people are MY people and I love that.

Cristina: I am so grateful for the ability to share my Disney passion through the MFL blog and bring some pixie dust to the wonderful families at Give Kids The World! To have a year where I am able to visit The Village twice and see the joy on these families going through so much has brought so much happiness and perspective to my life. I am so grateful that a place like Give Kids The World exists!
Tanya: I’m thankful for runDisney, which has made me more active, given me races and trips to look forward to, and goals to work toward. I have made new friends and grown closer to old friends through the races I have done. It has also given me a place to put all that extra money that I just had lying around. ???
Tim: I am Disney thankful for all of the fantastic Cast Members in Toy Story Land who went above and beyond to find my wife’s wedding ring after she lost it.
Rikki: The Disney Community. It has brought me some of my closest friends whom I now consider to be family. I cannot imagine my life without them.
Natalie: I am thankful for the reach of Disney Magic -that little bit of pixie dust that make hearts fly.
What? You would like an example? Okay.
Yesterday, I was shopping with my daughter. We had stopped for fortification at a cafe. It’s Christmas lead-up here in Australia, so the malls are full of moms and dads with little ones in tow as they shop for Christmas goodies. One little tike (maybe four years old) was walking with his overstressed mom. He was crying and fussing. It was obvious that the shopping had gone on a bit too long for his little legs and his mom, weighed down with bags and short on temper, couldn’t get him to stop.
A group of 4 teen boys from one of the local private schools were passing. One handed his coffee cup to another and he walked up to the family. He quickly introduce himself to Mom and asked if he and his buddies could help her carry her stuff to the car. In near tears she agreed. Nice boys, I agree. But here’s the Disney Magic. The boy knelt down to the frustrated, over-tired, little one and pointed to child’s shirt (I looked, it was Baymax).
“Hey, buddy. I like Big Hero Six too. On a scale from 1 to 10, how would you rate your shopping today?”
The little boy stopped crying, sniffed, then smiled. He held up 3 fingers.
“Oh, brutal, my man.” The older replied and
then held out his hand for a fist bump (done Baymax style of course).
Not another tear was shed, the boys helped mom to the car with her bags (or at least they headed that way).
Finally, we are all thankful for you! Without you, this wouldn’t be possible! Thank you for reading our posts each day!
From our Mouse For Less Blog family to yours, we wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving. We hope that you enjoy your time with your family and friends.
