Alright, so lets get the bitchiness out of the way first... If you have a strong aversion to 1) crowds and 2) small children, do not go to Disney World
just get over it and have a blast. (Seriously, I can't recall the last time I had so much fun wearing just a t-shirt, shorts and sneakers.)
In 1973, my family and I went to Disney World for the first time and its fair to say that the Magic Kingdom was, well,
and it still is. The fun I had inspired me to tell you about it.
My family has been returning to Disney every year since '73 ... me... not so much... I accepted the large crowds and walked around the strollers and didn't worry about anything at all. I rode every attraction.
: If you get to the Magic Kingdom when it opens in the morning and hit the attractions, you'll have almost no wait time. Really! Leave the shopping for later, ride first.
Impeccable landscaping throughout the grounds. Creeping fig topiaries like this can be found everywhere.
Love Splash Mountain! Sit in the front seat and you are sure to get soaked! That's my cousin Stephanie next to me and my sister, Miriam, behind us. Sports fans, check out Miriam's blog:
Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow of the Pirates of the Caribbean. Not really, but a damn good look alike!
The Haunted Mansion.
My favorite ride still is Space Mountain!
The Electrical Parade at 9pm is a million-sparkling-light extravaganza.
Cinderella's Castle transforms at night through amazing saturations of color.
