Disney-Inspired New Year’s Resolutions
Heading into a brand, spankin’ new lap around the sun brings the great exhale of the end of the holiday season and the deep inhale of hoping for the year ahead. As you look back on your past 12 months, you can remember the indescribable moments and also the lower points, where you wished for something more and better. Are your ready for your New Year’s resolutions?
Every year has its ups and downs, but as you prepare for a ‘whole new world’ of opportunity, consider seeking inspiration from Disney. As a company and destination that capitalizes on magic and fosters imagination, your New Year’s resolution can take you to many places, brew bright ideas and help instill a new zest for life, that hey – might even make you break out into song.
Here, six smart resolutions tied to Disney that you should definitely give a chance:
Eat At Every Restaurant at Disney World
There’s a reason you have a season pass to the happiest place on Earth: it brings you joy! As much as you love ever new addition that Walt Disney World is constantly creating and reimagining, humans are inherently creatures of habit, so it’s likely you end up at the same snack shops on Main Street and booking reservations at the same restaurants.
Since there’s so many flavors to try and sights to see, make it your pact to at least take one bite at every restaurant on site. With hundreds of options, one thing is for sure: you won’t go hungry!
Renew Your Passport
Already marveled at the wonders of Disney World and laughed your way through Disneyland? It’s time to pack up your Mickey (or Minnie) Mouse ears and head abroad, where you can experience the parks from a new perspective.
No matter where you roam, traveling has a way of renewing your spirit and expanding your perspective, especially when you can compare it the customs you’ve experienced stateside. From Paris and Tokyo to cruises in Europe, the Caribbean and beyond, dust off that passport and get to it.
Run a Half-Marathon (or a Full One!)
Though many people seek to lose weight every year, staying on task and resisting the urge to sneak a cookie when a sugar craving hits is a tall order. One way to maintain your motivation is to invest in your health… literally.
This year, book your bib at Disney’s Half-Marathon – or the full one, if you’re ready – giving you a deadline for your training. You can even rope in your partner and children into the workouts, making exercise an warmly welcomed addition to your family’s routine. After all, we bet when your girl hears she can dress up as a princess if she goes running with her mom or dad, she’ll be game for some laps.
At the core of Disney is lightness and creativity. Since the parks, the movies, the books, the costumes and all of the above strike to spark curiosity and imagination, spending more time focusing on your Disney fanhood might help you meet a different type of resolution.
Less concrete and more all encompassing, prioritizing play for the year means you say ‘yes’ to make believe with your kiddos, ‘yes’ to a last-minute ticket to Disneyland because you want to take a day off and ‘yes’ to getting out of your comfort zone, as you venture to the friendly oceans aboard a cruise ship. The more you play, the more you value the gift of life.
