How Disney’s Dreamlight Valley made me feel like a kid again

Rate this post

Every time I play a new video game I find myself trying to capture the feeling I had playing them when I was younger. That feeling where you find yourself staring at the screen and nothing else around you matters.

After years of trying to recapture that magic, I finally found it when I picked up Disney’s Dreamlight Valley (opens in new tab).

Growing up being an only child and living with a single parent who worked full time, I became very familiar with feeling lonely. I often found myself looking to the media around me for some sort of solace and since it was the 1990s, that media had something to do with Disney. Disney was everywhere then, from the Saturday morning cartoons I watched, the clothes I wore, the movies I went to see at the theater, and the video games I played.

One of my earliest gaming memories is playing Capcom’s Aladdin on the SNES (opens in new tab). The movie the game was adapted from was the first movie I ever saw in a movie theater. I was obsessed, right down to the Genie backpack that I would proudly bring to school every day.
