Last week, I was fortunate enough to attend one of the Pandora previews and got a first-hand look at what the Disney Imagineers have created inside Animal Kingdom. I will upfront with you…I have never seen Avatar the movie so I had no idea about the storyline, scenery, characters, etc. I went into this experience with no preconceived notions and, most importantly, no expectations mainly because I did not know what to expect.
Welcome to this month’s Blogorail Red Loop. Today we are exploring experiences that people tend to overlook at Disney.
If you started the loop from the beginning, you stopped by some wonderful attractions at EPCOT’s World Showcase. Now, let’s travel to the Magic Kingdom and more specifically to Liberty Square as we head inside the Hall of Presidents.
Over Easter weekend, I traveled to Ann Arbor, Michigan for the University of Michigan spring football game (GO BLUE!). I did not drive back home until Monday because I did not want to get stuck trying to find places that would be open on Easter Sunday. I figured it was much easier to stay in Ann Arbor for an extra night (college campus – diverse population – better chance to find things open). My daughter and I had a lovely Easter Brunch at a local hotel and then that afternoon we went to the movies. My family has a tradition of going to the movies on major holidays since they are usually less crowded.
My next Disney trip is coming up in a few weeks (mid-May) thanks to a random day off in my child’s school calendar. It’s going to be a trip of many firsts for our family. A lot of the firsts are because we, typically, travel in the fall and not the spring. It will give me a chance to experience some new things and give me a chance to blog about some new things at Disney as well.
Walt Disney World is a big place. It’s a lot of walking and hurrying to get from point A to point B and, also, a lot of waiting. This is tough on adults but it’s also tough on the children in the parks as well. Chances are there will be a meltdown in the parks from all the walking and waiting. It happens to everybody. What can you do to keep the meltdown at bay or avoid it altogether.
