Walt Disney World Tips

So you are planning a Walt Disney World trip this Summer? Well you do not want to go anywhere near Walt Disney World without these fun tips. Disney World is the funnest place on Earth for kids and adults alike. Thrills, adventures, and whole sum fun for the entire family.

Well first off, I am an 18 years veteran of the Disney World trips and family marches, yes I have survived at least 70 trips in all. For one I reside in Florida so it is not that big of a vaunt, truly. In all my trips the best tip that I can offer anyone is this, do the Magic Kingdom park counter-clockwise. Most people have a tendency to steer to the left and you most certainly want to go right, right into Tomorrow land.

At Tomorrow land you will experience the Monsters Inc. Laugh off, the Buzz Lightyear toy ride, and of course the main reason anyone enters Tomorrow land, Space Mountain. The other Walt Disney World areas of Frontier land, Adventure land, Fantasy land, Main Street, and Liberty square and Toon Town. Another thought might be to quickly jump on the Main street train and get off in Toon Town. This is good if you are traveling with small children, and want to get some great pictures with the likes of Pooh, Tigger, and Cinderella and of course Mickey Mouse and Minnie. They all reside in the great merchandise tent, pictures for everyone equals smiles for everyone. Don’t miss the Goofy fun roller-coaster at Toon Town.

The Walt Disney World Characters!

So you want to get a breakfast in with the Disney characters? Don’t make long waits at the Walt Disney World resort, the Contemporary. There is a little known secret inside the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin hotels. Character breakfast without the wait and those long incredible lines. You do not have to stay at any of these two hotels to make reservations to eat there, all you have to do is call ahead of time and make reservations, you can tell them that you want check out the hotel for a future reservation. Character at the Swan include Tigger, Pooh, Goofy, Chip and Dale and others.

The best part of staying at a Walt Disney World resort for me, is the fine bus service that is provided to you as a guest at the Disney World resorts. The buses run every 5 minutes during the day and night, and they run until the parks close, all of them. The relief is not only in the fuel department for your vehicle, but also the parking fee and the lines to catch the monorail or motor-coach. Saves time, money and that is something that everyone wants to save. Why not try to obtain a gift card for your next Disney trip right now? In the process share a story of your latest trip to the Disney.


The Epcot Flower And Garden Festival

With the latest deal from Walt Disney World and the tickets for special guest and the Florida resident program, there is no reason at all that you should not be headed to Orlando Florida for that special visit to the Epcot Flower and Garden festival sponsored by the HGTV network. I just returned from there and it was truly magical. I will be trying to post some of the pictures from Epcot just in case you cannot make this year.

Each country is represented with some of the finest Disney characters in rare shrubs and greens form. Germany boost the Snow White and the seven dwarfs creations, something really special to behold.  France has Beauty and Beast, and Luminere as well as Chip and Ms. Potts. The United States has some of my favorites, Buzz Light Year, Woody, and Lotso the huggin bear villain. Lotso has some incredible colors and brilliant red and yellows, and is set up in his very own special garden.

Besides some of the most incredible rides like Soarin, and Mission Space and of course Test Track, Epcot has long been one of my favorite Walt Disney World theme parks. Each time I go, it grows more and more on me. Kid’s do not get left behind in this park either. The special 3-D effect show of Michael Jackson’s Captain E-O, a short spectacular film directed by the Godfather of space movies, George Lucas. The Nemo ride, along with the Figment ride, offer the little ones some enjoyment.

Some of the countries represented by the magic of the HGTV special are Japan, Norwiege, and Canada, as well as England and others. Special artwork includes the Cinderella and Prince Charming, as well as Sleeping Beauty and her beau.  Look also for Car’s Lightning McQueen, and Toma-tor just to name a few of these masterpiece decorations. OK, so you can’t make it out there for this years EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival, this should not stop you from getting your hands on official Walt Disney World merchandise, let’s face it there is nothing like Official Walt Disney World merchandise, and now with a click of the mouse you can purchase your very own!

Find The Hidden Mickey Mouse

Finding the many hidden Mickey Mouse shapes at Walt Disney World can make the time go by rather quickly, and there are plenty of publications that help you find the hidden Mickey’s.  A craze that took off some time ago, has the designers of many of the new theme rides, and attractions throughout the many different kingdoms of Walt Disney finding a way to be creative and stump the Disney faithful.  Every time we visit we try to find new ones, and make the quest challenging for our family. There are many magical things to do at Walt Disney World, and some of the merchandise that is only available at the parks is now available online from the Disney store.  Get a close look at some of the exclusive merchandise today. Go Disney!

Some of the best hidden Mickey’s are those that are extra special and takes a creative eye to find.  I do not like to use the book, although on several trips with family members, we have even been challenged by not quickly finding these hidden Mickey Mouse ears, even though we are told where to look.  One example of this is in the Animal Kingdom where inside the amphitheater that houses the Nemo live show, there are a specific set of Mickey ears that form the head of that beloved mouse.  Once you find it, it then becomes one of those Ah..Ha moments.

Also during the Carousel of Progress ride, if you look closely during the last act, there is also a hidden Mickey Mouse Nut-cracker doll, that has sat there for years on end.  Again adding the special touch to the Walt Disney World magic.  In case you have never visited Walt Disney World, the Carousel of Progress is a ride that Walt Disney himself exhibited in the World Fair in New York City in the years 1964. Walt decided that this is a ride that will forever have a home in the Magic Kingdom, and it has not disappointed being one of the longest running shows in any theme park, or large metropolitan arts area.

If there is something new that you want to experience at Walt Disney World, get ready this year 2012 as the “New Fantasyland” gets ready to open, making some of the area that was special for the younger kids in attendance in the Magic Kingdom available again.  Goofy’s roller-coaster, the Beauty and Beast castle, which supposedly is going to have a restaurant and possibly a ride, which would be a first at Walt Disney World.  Also look for a new adventure for the Little Mermaid, something that we all can look forward to.  Remember to get the best merchandise and the only place to get official Walt Disney World merchandise, that makes it feel like you are right there at the parks. Go Disney.
