The phrase Disney Life is used by so many people to describe living your dream vacation in the parks, but Marc has come to see it as so much more. Disney park-goers describe the experience of Disney like being in “a bubble” filled with happiness and magic. Disney Life, as defined by Marc, is taking that mindset and perspective one feels at Disney and extending it to every aspect of one’s daily life.Even when you cannot be inside of the parks, or on vacation, Disney Life is about being mindful of the blessings and magic that can exist in one’s daily life. Sometimes, and most often it’s about taking a rest and a break from the daily grind to escape into one’s own Disney bubble and recharge. Disney Life can not only be a mindset, but a way of life.Marc started this podcast to set aside time for himself so he could reconnect with Disney, effectively putting himself inside a temporary Disney bubble no matter where he may be geographically located. Thank you for living your best Disney Life with us in our bubble, and I hope your day is filled with Faith, Trust, and Pixiedust!
