When I think of Disney, I think about dreams coming true and imagining a world that is a faraway place where there’s no pain, no suffering and you can be somebody else. When I was younger I didn’t have a chance to go to Disney World. At the time my parents couldn’t afford it. But my parents did their best to bring Disney into our home.”
