Magic Always Plays A Part In Once Upon A Time Stories

The Once Upon A Time myths almost always have magic, spells or enchantments involved that create an environment in which all of the interactions and scenarios become real and believable in the mind of the listener.  Great storytellers have the ability to open your mind to the possibilities and children are the most captive audience. Walt Disney certainly brought this magic to life with his theme parks, wonderful animation and stories that have been beloved for generations.
