Magic Kingdom: “Happily Ever After” Fireworks and Projection

Happily Ever After

Happily Ever After

Prepare yourself for the newest, most beautiful fireworks show in the history of Magic Kingdom in the Walt Disney World Resort. This 18 minute attraction features moments from classic Disney films such as “Aladdin” and “The Little Mermaid” to the more modern movies such as “Moana” and “Zootopia.” The Cinderella Castle, center of it all, becomes a part of the spectacle itself. Amazing projections bring heartfelt Disney stories to life on and around the iconic castle. You’ll also see Quasimodo from “Hunchback of Notre Dame” swings from the turrets. My favorite part has to be when Woody and his pals from “Toy Story” remake the castle entirely out of toys! And there is just so much more to enjoy during this show. It is an awesome combination of fireworks and projections, much like the spectacle “Wishes.” Are you coming to sunny Orlando with your family and need help planning your next trip to the Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort?

Disney Springs: Food Trucks

Disney Food Trucks

Disney Food Trucks

When you think Walt Disney World you probably don’t think Food Trucks, but the Walt Walt Disney World Resort seems to have it all! Situated in Westside in Disney Springs you can get a taste of some great grab and go street food. There are a few food trucks to choose from and after you grab a bite have a seat by the water or enjoy some live music, scheduled throughout the day/night. There are three distinctive food trucks so there’s something for just about everyone in the family. The lineup changes, but often includes:

Spring’s Street Tacos – A spot for flavorful South of the Border food. The menu typically has five different tacos as well as a combo. You can also order chips with guacamole and/or salsa.

Fantasy Fare – This food truck includes fan favorites found at Walt Disney theme parks all around the world!

World Showcase of Flavors – Here you can get sandwiches inspired by the cuisine featured at the Global Marketplaces during the annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. This one is my favorite!

Keep in mind these food trucks are… trucks! So at times they will be elsewhere. Disney food truck locations, menus and operating hours are subject to change without notice, however there’s always plenty of great street fare to choose from!

Typhoon Lagoon: Crush ‘n’ Gusher

Crush 'n' Gusher

Crush ‘n’ Gusher

It’s almost summer so why not start planning a trip to Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon? It already feels like summer here in sunny Florida! One of my favorite attractions of this waterpark is the Crush ‘n’ Gusher. In this ride take a wild raft ride down 400 footlong tube slides with a partner. You can choose from 3 “fruit chutes”—the Pineapple Plunger, Coconut Crusher or Banana Blaster. You can also do the them all solo if you so desire. However, I had a great time with a partner! I recommend it! Powerful jets propel you left, right, and even up! At the end you’ll skim across Hideaway Bay until you come to a stop.

Epcot: Spaceship Earth!

Spaceship Earth

Spaceship Earth

Spaceship Earth is more than just iconic, this attraction is fun AND educational. Travel back to the start of recorded history, when man painted his thoughts on only cave walls. Then when the Egyptians invented papyrus and the Phoenicians came up with the alphabet. Witness ideas spreading like no other with the invention of Johannes Gutenberg’s printing press and the inspiring works from the masters of the renaissance. The wheels of time turn even quicker when we travel to the modern age of media communications. From newspapers announcing the end of the Civil War to the televised broadcast of the moon landing and beyond, this attraction mentions it all! Besides that, they have also made this ride very interactive. You and your buggy partner will fill out a quick fun form that will display your ideal planet at the end. Don’t forget to be ready for the picture! Are you visiting Orlando with your family and need help planning your next trip to Epcot at the Walt Disney World Resort?

Magic Kingdom: Space Mountain!

Space MountainEven if you’ve never been to the Walt Disney World Resort I’m sure you’ve heard of Space Mountain! In this attraction you can navigate a dark, neon-lit space station and make your way to a busy control tower, passing a constellation of glowing astronaut training stations. Inside a futuristic launch pad, climb aboard a aerodynamic rocket and prepare yourself for a deep space adventure into the beyond! This one of a kind attraction is fast paced and very, very dark. These two characteristics make for a great combination. This ride was the first of it’s kind in fact, developed in the 1960’s. Space Moutain inspired many rollercoasters to follow such as “The Mummy” at the Universal Resort here in Orlando, as well as “The Rockin’ Roller Coaster” located in Hollywood Studios, practically next door. This attraction has always been a favorite of mine, but we all know what that can mean… long lines. However, not to worry! The line is filled with interactive games to keep you entertained along the way. It’s really not too bad. But, from a frequent visitor to a “newby”, this ride is best to visit near the end of the day, like most attractions. Coming to Orlando and need help planning your next trip to the Magic Kingdom?
