13 Disneyfied Friday the 13th Facts

December is traditionally associated with holiday cheer and pepperminty happiness, which makes having a Friday the 13th this month feel weird. Like Donald Duck in pants.

And, like of lot of things we believe, fear of Friday the 13th – called paraskevidekatriaphobia – isn’t based on any kind of scientific proof of pre-weekend nefariousness or, you know, scientific logic. Nope. Superstition is the only thing that says 13 is a crazy unlucky number.

Good thing Disney doesn’t agree.

Disney Parks Blog took a day normally met with doom and gloom, and gave it some mouse-eared magic, sharing 13 “lucky” facts that show how the number relates to Disney Parks. In the best ways possible of course:

One Mom MediaTravelhound Pilar wouldn’t mind being at Walt Disney World eating the ears off a Mickey ice cream bar right about now. But, since she can’t be at her “second home” year round, she curates happy thoughts on Disney Social Media Magic, a virtual springboard where breaking news and other Disneyfied thingamabobs are shared.
