I get asked this question regularly. I didn't take my first trip to Disney until I was 31 years old. I used to think I wouldn't enjoy it - children's characters everywhere, so many people, etc. I had visions of our local yearly carnival, but on a bigger scale.
Boy was I wrong.
We have traveled to Disney for each of the last 4 years. I put a lot of work in to saving and bargain hunting. Some people may think that sounds like a nightmare, but I actually love travel bargain shopping.
From the first time I stepped in to a Disney Park, I knew I loved it. Cheesy, right? But it's true.
Why do I love Disney? I love the excitement leading up to the trip. I love seeing all of my favourite childhood characters. I love seeing the look on my daughter's face when she meets the princesses. If I can be cheesy again for a moment, I would describe it as a truly magical experience.
A few of my favourite things:
1 - Breakfast with Winnie the Pooh and Friends at Crystal Palace (Magic Kingdom) - A delicious breakfast, as well as meeting your favourite characters. They come to each table, sign autographs, and you can take pictures with them.
2 - Princess Fairytale Hall (Magic Kingdom) - I am a princess at heart, so I love meeting all of the Disney princesses, and this is a great place to meet some of them.
3 - Splash Mountain (Magic Kingdom) - I have ridden this ride in the cold and on a drizzly day, and I've waited on a hot day over an hour. That's how much I love this ride. It's a good long ride too.
4 - Tower of Terror (Hollywood Studios) - A good jolt to the heart in this ride. But the queue is equally as cool. Lots to see.
5 - Expedition Everest - Such an awesome coaster. You get some pretty good views from the top of the coaster too!
I'm going to cut my list off there, but believe me, I could go on and on.
