Blogcation Review - Walt Disney World - Magic Kingdom

So we had decided on 2 parks (Disney NOT being one of them), however, Disney was kind enough to gift us 2 tickets, so we changed our plans. But we did not tell our boys

video

Since I took video with my cell phone, it's a raw, unedited video..
Luke thought I was taking a photo, Anthony was half paying attention and Cj couldn't care less

But once we arrived, their tunes changed.

The first thing hit was Space Mountain!!! I remember 30 years ago (next month) was my 1st trip to the Magic Kingdom. My cousins and I rode Space Mountain.. It was awesome. It's so nice to share that with my children. Though, this time, I didn't ride ..
I hung out with my little one. It's all good!

We chose our most favorite things to do because we arrived at lunch time and knew with the lines and heat, our 3 boys wouldn't last all day long.

Even now, at home, my youngest is singing "It's a great big beautiful tomorrow, shining at the end of every day".. Carousel of Progress is a favorite of the entire family..

When at Disney with your family, I find it helpful to pinpoint the items you want to do, especially when toting a smaller child. We tried to choose rides that we could experience as a family (except Space Mountain of course). The Haunted Mansion has a new entryway.. It is quite entertaining!

CJ was mesmerized by the Jungle Cruise. He couldn't take his eyes off of each animal, each item we passed, he was staring in awe.

Everyone's favorite's.. Hubby and CJ; Jungle Cruise, Anthony; Haunted Mansion, Luke; Space Mountain, Me; Pirates of the Caribbean.

Once of my hubby's most favorite things at Disney, Dole Whip !!! The delectable delicious ice cream treat. One Pineapple and one Orange, basic soft serve in a cup. This was a selling point of getting my husband to agree to 3 parks in 3 days with 3 boys.. Dole Whip !




For those who live in Florida, the Fall and Winter time is perfect for the parks and Disney has a lot to offer even with smaller children. The last time we went, our youngest was just a few months old.

It is amazing to watch the wonder in their eyes and what they can imagine with a little Magic.

  22. That video is priceless! I grew up in S Fla so Disney World was a major part of my childhood. We even had our senior grad party there

    ReplyDelete
  23. Wow, that's amazing that you went with a little one who was just a few months. I think that would be challenging, but I know Disney makes it easier by providing nice changing areas, nursing areas, etc.

  35. I kid you not, when I saw what this post was about, I was going to comment and suggest next time to be sure to stop by Aloha Isle for a Dole Whip... but I see you beat me to it. :-) :-) I'd go back just for that, I really would! :-) Great post.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I would never go to Disney (or any of the parks) in the summer -- too hot and too crowded! The fall is great, and Christmas is the best because it's so beautiful.

  41. I would love to take my son there sometime soon.
