Magical Blogorail Teal - The Perfect Disney Afternoon

 Welcome to those of you joining me from Capturing Magical Memories, and to those of you just hopping aboard. I am the final stop on our Magical Blogorail tour through the perfect Disney afternoon.

There is not much that I can still recall from English class as a kid, but one of the things I do remember is when attempting to define a word, one is not to use that word in the actual definition. Sometimes, however, it just seems impossible to keep to the rule, and this happens to be one of those times. For me to define the perfect Disney afternoon without using those words is impossible, because it simply is The Disney Afternoon.

My routine was pretty simple as a kid. I came home from school, grabbed a Pop-Tart or Little Debbie, and sat down for two hours of The Disney Afternoon. Homework would simply have to wait, because starting at 3pm every weekday I was glued to some of the best cartoons ever made...Duck Tales, Chip n Dale Rescue Rangers, Tale Spin, and Darkwing Duck. With the animated shorts of Disney past long out of production, these were the cartoons I grew up with, and man do I wish they were still around.

In later years, Duck Tales was substituted with Goof Troop, which seemed to be a backwards move for the lineup, because I much preferred the antics of Huey, Dewey, and Louie to Goofy and his made up son Max. There were too many unanswered questions with Goof Troop for me to appreciate it. I mean, how did Goofy have a son? Does that mean there's a Mrs. Goofy out there somewhere? Surely there has to be, but where is she? Did she dump Goofy? Or maybe he dumped her? These are all questions that arose from The Disney Afternoon, and I'm still attempting to reconcile them to this day.

If you came here today looking for a great way to spend a day at Walt Disney World, I'm sorry to leave you disappointed.  My hope is that there are others out there who severely miss Uncle Scrooge's swims in the money pit, and his ever faithful pilot, Launchpad McQuack. I know I sure do...
