Although so many things at Walt Disney World® Resort seem special, a handful of experiences really take the cake. Plan on at least one or two of the following excursions to make your stay extra-unique, a memory to last a lifetime.
Marlene Patrick suggests hotel hopping for those that have done just about everything at Walt Disney World.
Nicole Sutton will always remember the Walt Disney World vacation when my husband proposed…not only because of the magical marriage proposal at the Contemporary Resort’s observation deck during the fireworks with a sparkling ring and an adoring fiancé, but also because a beat-up, Disneyed- out father departing from the Magic Kingdom coined the phrase “7 Magical Days…”
Here are more of my all-time favorite Disney Destinations dishes. Would love to hear about your choices!
When it comes to eating, some might call me picky. My cooking strategy centers around “fresh, local, and organic,” and, because I live in the sort of neighborhood where that is the trend, my dining out choices are much the same. But when I go to Walt Disney World® Resort, I know that I’m going to be breaking my diet. I’m going to eat things with corn syrup and preservatives and artificial colors. (I’m definitely going to eat school bread and Mickey waffles, and ordinarily I eat gluten-free, so that tells you how badly I behave!)
One of my least favorite things to do in a theme park is wait in line. Conversely, one of my favorite things to do is … wait in line, but with one reservation. That line has to be in a Walt Disney World® Resort theme park, especially with recent changes and ones that are coming soon.
It’s very easy for a Walt Disney World® Resort vacation to be busy. You are running from attraction to attraction, while trying to fit in shows and character meet and greets. Add in a few dining reservations, time at the pool, and – oh yeah – sleep, and it can all be a little overwhelming! While it is a lot of fun to ride the rides, watch the shows and meet our favorite characters, we sometimes overlook the details, which make Disney even more magical.
What about working out while on vacation? Many choose to enjoy their vacation (which I am all for). After all, you will be doing a LOT of walking through the parks! (World Showcase in Epcot® alone is over a mile in length!) However, if you are training for an upcoming race, or just want to take a little time to yourself to get your sweat on, have no fear! There are many ways to fit fitness into a Disney vacation!
Are you interested in a true treat? Then walk don’t run to Palo on your next Disney Cruise Line® vacation for an incredible and bountiful champagne brunch! Adults only, sweeping views of the ocean, sophisticated atmosphere, outstanding cuisine…what can be better for a lazy day at sea?
December is always one of my favorite months, but this year it’s better than ever!
