I Saw a Sign – Wordless Wednesday

Signs are everywhere at Walt Disney World.  This week’s theme of Wordless Wednesday hosted by Focused on the Magic is Signs.  I’m sharing some of my signs.  The long sign is a sign that everyone staying at The Contemporary or Bay Lake Tower goes past on their walk to Magic Kingdom.  Above our some of my families favorite attractions: Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid, It’s A Small World, Dumbo the Flying Elephant.

Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid Review

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.
