Disney has been a part of my life since I was 6 weeks old when my parents took me to Disneyland Paris, or as it was called back then…Euro Disney…so I thought this tag was very fitting…
First time you went to Walt Disney World?
The first time I went to Walt Disney World was in 2000 when I was 3 years old. Unfortunately I don’t remember any of it, I have a bad enough memory as it is, I can barely remember what I did yesterday let alone 16 years ago. However, thanks to my parents recording it all and taking pictures I can look back on the memories we created as a family and smile knowing I was there and a part of that magical vacation.
(here’s a video of my first time visit to Walt Disney World, meeting Tigger at Crystal Palace)
Has and will always be Magic Kingdom. It’s my family’s tradition to make Magic Kingdom our first park every time we go to Walt Disney World. And also, I just find that the Magic Kingdom is just the most “disney” and magical.
Favourite land in Magic Kingdom?
It’s a tricky one, obviously I love them all but I think I’d have to choose Tomorrowland. It has some of my all-time favourite rides in the whole resort including Space Mountain, Astro Orbiter, Buzz and Speedway.
Favourite Disney resort hotel?
Port Orleans French Quarter. It’s the resort we have stayed at the most times. It’s the perfect size for us as my family find many of the resorts way too big with way too many bus stops. French Quarter only has one bus stop which we love. It has boat transportation down to “Disney Springs”…it’s still called Downtown Disney to me. The theming is great, it’s one of the more affordable resorts and it’s fairly central to all the parks so the bus ride to any of them is never too long.
Either the frozen banana or the ice-cream sold at the top of Main Street USA where in your ice-cream you get two chocolate buttons to make Mickey Ears…never too much Disney.
My family and I used to be avid pin collectors but I’ve kind of grown out of that. I love buying Disney soft toys because who doesn’t? Last time I went to WDW I spent 50 dollars on a Stitch Plush and a Duffy costume for him so I could dress him up as Sully.
Favourite Counter-Service/Table Service?
Favourite counter service is probably Columbia Harbour House in Liberty Square in Magic Kingdom. My favourite table service is probably the Sci-Fi Diner in Hollywood Studios as I think the theme is amazing. You sit in cars and there’s a big screen where you watch old short films and adverts while you eat.
Ah I can’t just choose one, that’s impossible. Toy Story Mania is awesome. I love Tower of Terror and Rock ‘n’ Roller coaster. I love Under The Sea: The Journey of The Little Mermaid. I love Astro Orbiter, it’s always one of the rides we hit on our first day of the holiday. There’s too many to pick just one. I love Test Track in Epcot and as well as the Safari in Animal Kingdom.
I loved watching people audition at the American Idol Experience when it was there but that venue has now been turned into a Frozen: Sing-a-long…I think that’s a little too much. But my favourite actual show is Dream Along With Mickey…I just love that music so freaking much. But I also love the Finding Nemo Musical and The Festival of The Lion King in Animal Kingdom.
My favourite parade is the Move It Shake It Dance and Play It Street Party in the Magic Kingdom. And of course my favourite firework display is Wishes! Me and my family have been to WDW over New Years Eve multiple times now and the “Wishes” display then is incredible. It’s a 360 degrees display and you’re surrounded by fireworks. If you can go to WDW for New Years Eve, even though it may be hectic, like incredibly hectic, I would highly recommend it.
Favourite Pavilion at Epcot?
Probably Japan. Not gunna lie I love it because of the sweet shop section.
What colour was your last magic band?
Yellow…my sister stole the pink one.
Favourite character to meet?
The Mad Hatter. Once we met him at a character buffet breakfast and my sister, seeing as it was her birthday, had ice-cream so the Mad Hatter took her spoon…full of ice-cream and put it on her nose….one of the best character meets me and my family have ever had we were laughing our heads off.
A character you haven’t met but want to?
BAYMAX!!!!! Nothing else needs to be said…who doesn’t want to meet a giant marshmallow.
Your best Disney memory?
WOW! Too many to choose from. Every time I go to Disney, whether that’s Walt Disney World or one of the Disneylands, I always create so many magical memories I can’t just choose one so here are some of the edits I’ve created over the years. So click a link that takes your fancy and experience my memories with me.
