"I love Disney because it has the power to allow me to be a child again.
"When we were in Disneyland Paris, I had a tear my eye when I saw Cinderella and Mary Poppins in the space of five minutes and Minnie and Goofy joining us for breakfast was surreal.
"The biggest joy was Ryan's face when he met the newer stars, like Sully from 'Monsters Inc', Buzz Lightyear and Woody from 'Toy Story'."
-- Elaine Burke, mum to Ryan (five) and Lauren (one)
"Children love a good story and Disney stories have it all -- love, adversity, a great villain and a happy ending. That's what it's all about.
"When it comes to dressing up, my girls' favourite outfits are Aurora and Cinderella -- having their costumes and toys reminds them of the movies and the fairytale feeling they get when they watch it.
"What little girl doesn't want to be a princess and Disney is great at delivering that."
-- Sandra McKenna, owner of MummyPages.ie and mum to Talulla (six) and Alexandra (three)
