Even though all of Disney's theme parks that resemble the original Disneyland are called the "Magic Kingdom" there's no real magic in any of them. If that bursts the bubble in which you keep Santa, the Easter Bunny, and Al Franken, I'm sorry. (There are twelve Disney parks world wide. Six, including Disneyland, CA, are labeled Magic Kingdom.)
During my years at Walt Disney Imagineering (WDI) we designed a wide range of completely new Disney theme parks as well as new "lands" and attractions for existing parks and resorts. One of my favorite mottos for our design work was."

The way this illusion is accomplished—all day and all night since the mid 1960's—is so technically simple, you could do it at home. (You likely have and didn't know it.) The "secret" is readily available online so I will not ruin it, here, for many who want to continue to enjoy this wonderful ... magical ... experience.
All that to say, that of(t)en* the best solution—even to tough, difficult problems—is the easiest. At minimum it will be a simpler answer than we fear. To often we want the solution to be difficult so that when we crack the code there is a bigger sense of accomplishment.
Don't be so hard on yourself. Solving any problem,. completing any task should be reward enough in the mere accomplishment. I am frequently delighted when I use a simple solution to a problem or project.
BIG CLUE :: No matter the obstacle, begin by asking what some of the easy solutions might be. When they are insufficient, move up a step or two, don't escalate. Don't make the solution more difficult, time consuming, or expensive than is necessary to get the job done. Remember: Not MAGIC, but MAGICAL.
