On my family’s most recent trip to Walt Disney World, my wife, her sister and niece dined at The Bon Voyage Breakfast hosted by Trattoria al Forno on Disney’s Boardwalk. I was off with my daughter climbing the four mountains of Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom (that’s another blog post for another day). My wife knew this was a new and unique experience for our family and took great pictures of her experience for use on the blog.
With Mother’s Day coming up on Sunday, I wanted to dedicate today’s post to the mothers who didn’t make it to the end of their Disney movie. Chances are if you are a mother in a Disney movies, you are not going to make it passed the halfway point of the movie and more likely the first 15 minutes. However, these deaths help to make the main character stronger by the end of the movie. I want to spend some time looking at four mothers from Disney movies.
Disney has released a lot of movies and lots of people watch Disney movies to help them get excited and help them count down to their Disney vacation. With Fall Free Dining released today, it seems like a good idea to go through some of the movies which, I think, should be part of every Disney vacation countdown.
I decided to break my countdown movies into two groups (Classic and Modern). There are four movies in each groups and they all animated. If this list was for Disneyland not Disney World, it would include Mary Poppins, in the classic category, and Saving Mr. Banks in the modern category.
I’m going to tackle my first attraction review today with one of Disney’s newer rides: Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid
Park: Magic Kingdom
Location in Park: New Fantasyland
Soft Opening Date: October 12, 2012
Opening Date: December 6, 2012
Vehicle Type: Omnimover
Riders per Clamshell: 2 or 3
Ride duration: 6 minutes 15 seconds
My family and I had the ability to ride this during the soft open period in November 2012. We went during a period that was only open to annual passholders. Even still, the ride had a 20 minute wait when we got into the queue. This gave us plenty of time to take pictures of the queue and inside the ride.
