When a Disney Princess gets up in the morning, she just knows she is going to have a Disney day. I think it’s in her contract. She doesn’t need a top five list to help her achieve this goal. But we do!
We may not be Disney Royalty, but we all deserve to enjoy the fun and magic that comes along with a Disney day! So here is my top five list of things you and I would need to do to ensure that each and every day we have is just a little more Disney-ish:
NEED-TO-DO NUMBER ONE
DRESS THE SAME WAY EVERY DAY
Ever notice that every main Disney character never changes his or her clothes? Well, rarely anyway. One can only hope this single-minded fashion statement doesn’t extend to undergarments!
But just think of how much time you would save each morning not having to decide what to wear. And most important is the instant recognition you would receive everywhere you go!
Yes, dressing in the same clothes… forever… is the first step towards having a truly Disney day.
NEED-TO-DO NUMBER TWO
BURST INTO SONG UNEXPECTEDLY
Before you can amaze and startle everyone around you with your gifted warbling, you will need to pick a theme song that encapsulates your goals and spirit. Every Disney character is known for belting out a jaunty tune about themselves whether anyone wants to hear it or not.
So be sure to wait for the right moment. Perhaps while waiting in line at the grocery store. Or while seated in a crowded medical office (let’s be honest, sick people need to hear a good song!). Or perhaps in a packed elevator where no one can leave.
To make this a true part of your Disney-ish day, why not include some impromptu dance choreography? Be sure to add some pivots, turns, and lots of arm waving!
NEED-TO-DO NUMBER THREE
CHOOSE AN ANIMAL MASCOT
After years of selection, most of the cute little critters are already spoken for. Birds especially. Man, what’s up with Princesses and birds?
Being Canadian, I’ll pick a moose. Or a beaver. See what I’m doing here? Try to pick something that people in your region will identify with. Then travel with it everywhere!
Nothing says “This person is special and different” in quite the same way as walking down Main Street America with a bald eagle on your shoulder!
NEED-TO-DO NUMBER FOUR
IDENTIFY YOUR NEMESIS
We all have people in our lives that we don’t necessarily like. So why not pick one and elevate them to Nemesis status!
Perhaps that girl at the office who’s always hogging the copier. Or that guy at the gym who never wipes off the equipment when he’s done using it. Or how about that old lady in the grocery line who has a dozen expired coupons and then forgets where her wallet is only to find it in time to decide she needs 500 lottery tickets!!!
Yeah. She’s my Nemesis.
NEED-TO-DO NUMBER FIVE
Instead of taking the Worry Turnpike or staying on the Downer Highway be sure to swerve your hypothetical vehicle onto the Dreams Exit Ramp each and every day!
Even big dreams can be attainable. Remember, because you are having a Disney-ish day, all things are possible! And you probably have a cast of dozens there to help you. Every Disney dreamer does.
So what’s your Big Dream?
So there you have my top five list of things you and I would need to do to ensure that each and every day we have is just a little more Disney-ish.
