Aloha Friday



I have an announcement.

Stop what youre doing and sit down.



No, I am not excited.

I mean, I am a 34 year old mature mother of three and do not get giddy over the thought of seeing Mickey

and Donald

and Cinderella's castle.

I am not excited that I will not have to cook a meal and clean up a kitchen for one whole week.

And the thought of seeing my children with "perma-grins" all week long does not make me so excited I lose sleep.

But anyways, this post isnt about me.

Ok it is. Kinda.

I want to know......

Have you been to Disneyworld?

What was your favourite park/attraction/restaurant?

What should we make sure that we see?

And dont see?

I need tips.

Thanks muchly.

Living on the west coast, I could tell you a lot about DisneyLand, but have never been to Disney World. The only thing I've been told about Disney World is that even though it is terribly crowded they still do a fantastic job of getting people out when it is closed. Very organized place. I hope your family has a wonderful time! You might be able to do an online search on tips for enjoying Disney World and find some helpful things!

Disney World is awesome! I highly recommend that you get park hopper passes. You can hop between parks and attractions during the day. I haven't been to the water parks, but they look good in that hot Florida weather!

Also, pick your top rides and see if they have fast pass. It schedules an hour time frame that you can go on that ride and you don't have to wait in those super long lines. Cuts your wait time a lot!!

Hope you have a fun trip!

We went a few years ago but only to the one park & we wished we'd done more. It was fun but... too little time for so much park!

Hi, Lane said...

My family goes all the time, because it's only about 8 hours from us. With the kids, you're going to want to spend most of your time in Magic Kingdom. That's where all the kiddie rides are & where Mickey & all the characters are. If you can keep them up, they have a bunch of great parades in Magic Kingdom after dark. Epcot is more for adults, as it has the different countries to visit, and very few rides. Animal Kingdom is great and has quite a few rides, too. MGM Studios doesn't have many rides, but has mostly shops & restaurants. I hope this helps!!! (And Fast Passes are key. If you find a ride you want to go on, before you head to the park, when you get there in the morning, go straight to that ride to get a Fast Pass. It will give you a time to come back so you won't have to wait. All of the most popular rides have the Fast Pass, but they are passed out really quickly, so if you don't get there by 10am, there usually aren't any left.)

I went to whichever Disney is in Florida... when I was a kid, I do not remember anything except that I had fun!

I'm not a fan of Disneyland for kids, per se... it's always such a zoo there, and don't expect to be able to walk easily because of the crowds. I don't know what DisneyWorld is like... never been. That said...

... the Indiana Jones ride and the Flume ride at Disneyland are totally worth the lines. Do they have the same in Florida?

Jenners said...

No suggestions as we're not "Disney people" but be honest ... this is all about getting out of housework isn't it?

Hi, I've been reading your blog for about 6 months now. This is my first time commenting. My family went to Disneyworld in Oct 2008. It truly is magical. I have a few recommendations:

At Epcot
- The Talk to Crush (from Nemo) show
- The ride Soarin'

My son was turning 4 when we went, and other than meeting characters and getting to buy lots of stuff, these two things were by far his favorites.

Have a great time.

I love your blog!
