About The Joyous Living
I was introduced to Disney when I was a toddler going to Disneyland annually with the family and friends.
My first ever post on The Joyous Living in fact was about my solo trip to Disneyland for Memorial Day weekend.
We didn’t start off as a Disney themed blog. In fact, in 2013, The Joyous Living was launched as a “lifestyle” blog focusing on everything under these un. In 2020 during the pandemic we niched down to entertainment and in 2021 we decided to niche even further down with a focus on Disney related entertainment.
We have collaborated with Walt Disney Motion Pictures, Disney Books, Disneyland, Disney+, and Disney on Ice as well as reviewed different Disney musicals in Southern California.
Disclaimer: Despite the collaborations we have had with The Walt Disney Company, this is an unofficial Disney fan site.
