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.
At the end of 2016, Walt Disney World debuted two new shows to the Magic Kingdom: The Muppets Present Great Moments in American History and Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire. When I was at Walt Disney World in December, I was able to view both of these shows and grab some good pictures.
This story broke last week and quickly raced through the Walt Disney World fan community with nearly universal acceptance. I spent some time, over the weekend, and I am about to throw some cold water on that acceptance. I don’t think this is a good idea for the Walt Disney World resort. I think it is a case of short-term profit taking over the long-established traditions of the Magic Kingdom. Below I will lay out my case for why I think this is a bad idea.
