1. What are your favorite rides at Walt Disney World in Florida?
This is a hard one. Some of my favorites at Magic Kingdom are: Space Mountain, Haunted Mansion, Pirates of Caribbean, Big Thunder Mountain, and the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
I also have a soft spot for some of the old classics like It’s a Small World and Carousel of Progress. I grew up going on those rides with my family.
I enjoy going on Test Track at Epcot, Star Tours (Star Wars ride) at Hollywood Studios, and Dinosaur at Animal Kingdom.
2. Where are some of your favorite places to eat?
Tusker House in Animal Kingdom has become one of my favorite places to eat breakfast/lunch. The food is good, and the characters come to the table to take pictures and sign autographs.
Some of my other favorite places to eat are: Sunshine Seasons in Epcot, 50’s Prime Time Cafe in Hollywood Studios, and Liberty Tree Tavern in Magic Kingdom.
3. What are your favorite Disney resorts?
My favorite resorts that I’ve stayed at are Art of Animation (Finding Nemo Suites) and the Wilderness Lodge.
The resort I absolutely love, but have never had the pleasure of staying at yet, is the Polynesian Village Resort. It’s such a beautiful resort with great restaurants.
4. Do you have a favorite parade or fireworks display?
My favorite parade has always been the Electrical Parade at Magic Kingdom. It is a must-see for me on every trip.
5. What are your favorite snacks?
Ice cream at L’Artisan des Glaces in the France Pavilion at Epcot is one of my faves. Last year, I tried the croque glace and it was perfection. I could barely stop eating long enough to take a couple pictures. It was definitely worth a snack credit on the meal plan. This ice cream place puts a scoop of ice cream on a brioche bun, puts it into a hot press, and the end result is this amazing cold and hot dessert. It was some kind of wonderful.
Here’s a link, if you want to see pictures of the croque glace and how it’s made.
I also enjoy a refreshing Dole Whip at Magic Kingdom, and a Jalapeno Cheese Pretzel or a Sweet Cream Pretzel at Epcot. Actually, I love snacking around the World Showcase in Epcot. There are so many snacks to choose from, so it’s a lot of fun.
6. What is your favorite activity outside of the parks?
It would probably be walking around Downtown Disney. It’s fun to walk around there at night when they have a live band playing outside. We explore the stores, eat dinner at one of the restaurants, and have a relaxing stroll. It can be a welcome break from the theme parks.
