We’re the first to admit that the attraction to Disney is strong. Otherwise, there would be no so-called Disney Adults.
So what’s a Disney Adult to do when they decide it’s time to couple up? Finding a partner who ALSO loves Disney seems to have some advantages!
We asked our Instagram followers to share their stories about meeting their partners because of their love for Disney, and we got so many stories! We’re sharing some of our favorites with you here!
She wouldn’t even be here without Disney!
One of our favorite stories came from IG user @agdollsinthedesert who might not even EXIST without Disney.
Her parents literally met each other while they were working at the Disney Store!
Swipe right…for the love of Disney
“Our first ever conversation on Hinge was about which Disney Parks were our favorite!” says @katihernandez_.
Now, she says, they have been twice and gotten to see each other’s favorite parks together — hers is Magic Kingdom, his is Animal Kingdom. “You can definitely say it brought us together!”
@shelbyefarrar17 also found a Disney-loving connection online. “We matched online for our mutual love of the parks! First date at EPCOT, engaged at MK!”
Met during a Disney World night out
@amonty14 met her partner in a fairly typical way — during a night out at a bar.
EXCEPT…this bar was at Disney World! “Each on vacations with friends, we met during a night out at Jellyrolls! ” she said.
Cast Member love
We know that many of the people who love Disney enough to work there meet and fall in love in Orlando.
This is precisely how it happened for @alysse.c! They met when she was a performer in Festival of the Lion King, while he was working as a guide at Kilimanjaro Safaris.
People participating in Disney’s College Program also find romance! “We did the DCP and met there,” said @_katiebelcher. “That was 10 years ago. We’re married + expecting our 2nd girl!”
Disney Love at First Sight
@therealsteens met 14 years ago, on their first day of college.
“Our first convo was about how much we both love Disney!” they said.
Disney can also spark those teen romances!
“We met backstage when both our high schools were performing in Magic Kingdom!” says @enjay817.
A romance with…character
And then there’s this practically perfect tale… .
“I was a friend of Mary Poppins years ago,” says @kateabreo. “His family got a pic with Mary,” and that’s how they met!
Disney-loving partner wanted
And finally, we received a few tongue-in-cheek answers about WANTING a Disney-loving partner replacement.
Like this one from @carolyncath: “Might have to meet my next partner this way as my husband says no more trip for a bit .”
