“You see, its just like I told ya.
Wishes can come true, if you believe in them with all your heart. And the best part is, you’ll never run out of wishes. They’re shining deep down inside of you.
‘Cause that my friends is where the magic lives.”
Since 2003, the Wishes fireworks show at Disney’s Magic Kingdom has been encouraging all of its guests to keep on wishing. Wishes has a special place in my heart because, for the past year, Peyton and I have been able to watch in nightly from our bedroom window (best house view EVER). The soundtrack to the show has always been one of my favorites and it has been known to stir up emotions in most people who hear it.
Only some people know how truly near and dear Disney is to our hearts. Fun fact: when Peyton and I went to pick out our wedding bands, one quote popped into our heads immediately when we were thinking of what to engrave on the inside of the rings– “do as dreamers do.”
It’s a pretty fitting line for us. As cheesy as it sounds, that’s exactly how we live our lives. We are always dreaming, always wishing, always hoping. When we first started dating, we talked and dreamed about living in central Florida and Peyton getting to work for Disney. Fast forward a few years and we are living out that dream. No matter how old we are or where our path takes us, we will continue to live by the saying inscribed on our wedding bands. We hope that we can inspire others to never settle and always reach for those things that you fall asleep dreaming about doing in life.
Thanks, Wishes, for lighting up our world (literally) every night and reminding us to never stop wishing. You will be missed.
For those that weren’t able to see the show tonight and/or are reading this from hundreds of miles from the happiest place on earth, please watch a tribute to it via YouTube below!
Until next time, keep on the sunny side.
