My Disney Side by Mike Belobradic

Disney travel has always been a big part of my life.

It all started at a very early age when my father (the original Disney traveler in our family) first took our family to Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California in the summer of 1966. As a four-year-old boy, standing before the gates of “the happiest place on earth” is one of my earliest childhood memories. That was my first experience with Disney magic and the Pixie Dust really stuck with me. So, once Walt Disney World opened in 1971 — and was much closer to home (on a relative basis at least) — things really began to ramp up for the Belobradic family when it came to Disney vacations.
