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.
With it being Groundhog Day today, I thought it would be fun to look at some Groundhog Day attractions at Walt Disney World. This post will one attraction in each park that you want to ride over and over again and one attraction in each park where you only ride it once but it feels like you rode it over and over.
Last month when my family was in Orlando, we decided to make a side trip to have a breakfast with some Minions and other characters at Universal’s Royal Pacific Resort. My daughter and I are both huge fans of the Minions. We wanted to find a way to meet them without spending the money on a one-day ticket to Universal.
It was announced, last week, that EPCOT will be getting a facelift. It is rumored that the majority of this facelift will be occurring in Future World and hopefully turning the Experimental Prototype Community of the Past (EPCOP) back into the Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow (EPCOT) I talked about this topic some time ago when attempting to fleshing out Walt Disney World’s long-range plan leading up to the 50th anniversary in 2021 (less than five years away). Today, I’ll attempt to figure out what is safe, what will get “a new coat of paint”, and what is “on the chopping block.”
