Someone asked me today “how can you be excited about another trip to Walt Disney World, isn’t it the same as it was the last time you were there?”. They were implying that I had already ‘been there, done that’. Yes – I was there 2 months ago, and multiple times last year – but no, it never gets boring.
The next question I hear is “haven’t you seen it all?” – and the simple answer is NO! Walt Disney World is always changing so there is something ‘new’ to see or do every time I visit.
Here’s why I’m excited about my next trip!
- I have stayed in almost all of the Walt Disney World resorts – with the exception of the All Stars, Disney’s Yacht Club and Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. I have toured all of the resorts at length, but these ones have escaped my vacation plans. I’m excited that I will be spending the first half of my week at the Polynesian! I’ve dined at this resort multiple times and can’t wait to wander over for a dole whip before bed!
- The new show “Rivers of Light” debuts as Disney’s Animal Kingdom on April 22nd, I will get to experience this in May! I’m so excited as I love the night-time entertainment! My only concern is how will I decide between Rivers of Light, Illuminations at Epcot, Star Wars fireworks & Fantasmic at Hollywood Stuidos and my all time favorites Wishes & the Main Street Electrical parade at Magic Kingdom? I think I need more nights…
- A waterfront brunch at Narcoosee’s is on the menu! We will be checking out the Sunday Brunch now being offered in this gorgeous setting. We have never eaten here before – so this will be a real treat. I can’t wait to try it!
- Skipper Canteen opened last year in the Magic Kingdom, but we always had such busy itineraries that we never had a chance to visit. This is something that we’re definitely making time for this trip! We love the Jungle Cruise, dining on dishes called “Dr. Falls’ Signature Grilled Steak” or “Trader Sam’s Head-on Shrimp” will be too much fun!
The Frozen Ever After attraction at EPCOT and Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire at the Magic Kingdom still say ‘coming soon’ on the official site. I suspect they won’t be there when I go in May… I guess that means I’ll have to plan another trip? It’s a rough life, but someone’s gotta do it!
Walt once said ‘Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world.’ I’m so glad this vision is carried on at Walt Disney World, I continue to be amazed and inspired each time I step on the Disney property and revitalize my own imagination.
