Tips for for Resting at Disney’s Magic Kingdom Park

 

During a Walt Disney World® Resort vacation, there are many miles of walking involved. I go into several Rides for Resting. I am not as young as I used to be and have a hard time navigating a park from opening to closing anymore. There are many rides in this park I call resting rides. The rides are also air-conditioned. Since the Florida heat can rise into the 90’s air-conditioning is a must! In the winter you might need to warm up or just rest. The Magic Kingdom has so many attractions now it can take two days or more to see it and enjoy. If you go around the park counter-clockwise below are the seven rides I use for resting at The Magic Kingdom.

  1. Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress
  2. Mickey’s PhilharMagic
  3. It’s a Small World
  4. The Hall of Presidents
  5. Country Bear Jamboree
  6. The Enchanted Tiki Room~~Under New Mangement
  7. Tomorrowland Transit Authority People Mover~~(Some Air-Conditioning)

I love the Magic Kingdom it is my favorite park. It gives me the feeling of coming home any time of the year! It stole my heart on the first visit. I get that warm feeling as soon as I walk down Main Street. I love the smell of the pastries, the sound of the train wheels clacking down the track, the breeze blowing my hair, feeling free from worry just like Walt wanted. It is so joyful just to walk down Main Street USA! When I ride these rides it helps me to keep rested and cooled during the day. I know they are not the Magic Kingdom’s “E” ticket attractions but, it contributes to relaxing along the way. It makes the magic and pixie dust more fun!!

I just love character meals with the Disney Dining Plan at The Walt Disney World Resort. These are some of the reasons why I love Walt Disney World® Dining Plan which will help you when you are planning your Walt Disney World® Resort vacation!

  1. I love having my food paid for before I go on vacation! It is great for your budget.
  2. Children under 3 are FREE!
  3. I love having the refillable mug! It is also a great souvenir!
  4. I have to admit I love all of the wonderful deserts included! It is such a treat. If I do not eat them at the meal I take the deserts to the room for a snack later.
  5. I love to eat at the Character Meals, which is a great deal on the Disney Dining Plan. Also, it is so fun and exciting when the Characters come to your table for photos and Autographs! When my son broke his arm the Characters signed his cast!
  6. Food is a very important part of our Walt Disney World® Resort vacation!
  7. You can enjoy the different restaurants and experiences which come with the meals and not have to worry about the bill!

It is that time of year again after the warmth of the summer and before the crisp air of the fall to apply for the Disney Parks Moms Panel. What is the Disney Parks Moms Panel? It is a group of passionate Disney lovers who answer questions to help people plan extra magic, fun, and memories into their vacations on the Disney site. There are only a few chosen for the many whom apply. To be on the Disney Parks Moms Panel is very fun for the Disney Lovers who love to plan Disney vacations like me! I will never give up trying.

The adventure begins again this year on September 6th, 2016. I have applied every year since the panel started. I have not made the panel yet but have “won” in so many more ways. I have had fun on every adventurous application and met friends from all over the world.  These particular friends chEAR for each other and cry for disappointments along the way.

 

Of course, the application process is not easy for that “Princess” role on the panel. It is a “tale as old as time” ten yEARs of applications, and a roller coaster ride with ups and downs along the way. I would not have it any other way!

Rubba Ducks Are Splashing at Disney Springs Boathouse Restaurant

Have you heard about the new Rubba Ducks® coming to Downtown Disney which is transforming to Disney Springs soon? The Rubba Ducks® are just so cute making a huge splash at,  The Boathouse Restaurant gift shop! “They are alot like you and alot like me”.  They are really cool quackers & have several qualities listed below:

  • It’s all in the details. These ducks are chock full of elements, from vibrant colors to ornate sculpturing to decorative costumes and designs. You’re going to love them!
  • They Float Upright. All.The.Time. Rubba Ducks are designed with weights at the bottom so they will always float upright! Try it in your own sink/bathtub/pool!
  • The ‘Hole’ Story. Most rubber ducks have a hole in the bottom which, when used in the bathtub can retain mold. Not Rubba Ducks! There is no hole in the bottom so NO MOLD!

The ducks are super cute and lots of fun to collect and give as gifts. They were founded in 1997, and was the first company to bring character rubber ducks to life. What’s special about these ducks is that they are uniquely designed to communicate their individual personality and characters. While there are the traditional-themed ducks dressed as police, firemen, sports and animals, these ducks go a step further in incorporating specialized hobbies and interests like a train con’duck’tor, a marathon runner duck,  a ‘groovee’ duck, and even a duck who loves a good cappuccino, among many, many others. In addition to the variety, each of the Rubba Ducks® is adorned with a tattoo on its tail feathers reflecting its unique personality, and their own hatch date and engaging bio found on their trading cards.

You will have to check back to this site, Fans of Mickey Mouses House for a giveaway of a Rubba Duck! I think it will be splashing fun & easy to enter!
