Even if you’re a total Grinch and hate Christmas or a total recluse who doesn’t own a TV, the chances are that you still love Disney. Because we all do! It’s been going for many generations now and everything about it continues to be feel-good. Here are 7 reasons that we (and you) love Disney.
1. It takes you back to childhood
There’s nothing quite like re-watching an old Disney classic and having it take you back to the very first time you saw it. That sense of nostalgia never really goes away and it just makes you feel young and happy all over again.
2. It has valuable life lessons
Sure on the surface, each film may seem like a happy-go-lucky sing-song number but each Disney film actually has valuable lessons about family, about dreams, about courage, about sacrifice and about the strength we each carry inside us!
3. The songs are amazing
Whether you’re a once-upon-a-dream or more of a I’ll-make-a-man-out-of-you, there’s definitely a Disney song out there that you just can’t get enough of. They’re just so catchy!
4. All ages can enjoy it
The really great thing about the films is that they’re so universal. An adult watching it for the first time is just as likely to enjoy it as a child would. Because there’s something in there for everyone and the messages they hold really do ring true for all of us. Plus, there are a few adult jokes secretly woven into most of them that the grown ups can laugh at while the children stay oblivious.
5. The theme parks are great
There are parks in America, France, Japan, Hong Kong and China and each one is just as amazing as the last. With roller coasters, parades and all the feel-good factor of the movies brought to life, you have to visit at least once.
6. It has characters you can root for
With a wide array of animal sidekicks, inanimate objects brought to life and handsome princes, the movies have characters that you can really root for. Plus, they all have some fabulous outfits that will have you sorted for Halloween, year after year.
7. It’s all about love
Love between princesses and princes, love between sisters, love between a girl and her kingdom, love between a girl and her father; the list is endless.

Why Has Disney Been So Successful?
Thanks to the Age of Information most of us know a bit about business; we have a rough notion of the meaning of ‘turnover’ and ‘expenditure’, and experience at first-hand a company’s changes to its ‘product lines’. We also have an idea about what makes one tumble or thrive, and every so often we see a company singled out because of what it produces. Disney is one such company…
