Some say that the “Happiest Place on Earth” is Disney World… and obviously, they’ve never been in my arms. Just kidding!
The day after going to the Universal’s Islands of Adventure, we visited Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. The theme park is divided into six different lands: Main Street, USA, Liberty Square, Frontierland, Adventureland, Fantasyland and Tomorrowland. To be honest, I didn’t like the rides there because it’s too childish and I just came from Islands of Adventure a day before where their rides are really extreme compared to Magic Kingdom’s attractions but I was really amazed by the surroundings itself. If you’re a kid, you would really enjoy Disney World. However, I enjoyed it because it’s my first time going there and another reason is the nostalgia that it brought. I felt like a princess for a day. There are no words to describe Cinderella’s Castle, the Main Street, the Disney Parade and the spectacular fireworks display infront of the castle. You just have to be there to see it for yourself.
Actually, I just took this photo so we could remember where we parked the car. Same with Universal, their parking labels are characters so it would be easy to remember.
From the parking space, we rode this shuttle to the terminal of the train to Mainland.
I really got excited when I saw this gate. It’s like a gate to the happiest place on Earth.
Yeah , that’s my ticket. Isn’t it cute?
Look! It’s Donald!
Of course, Mickey couldn’t be gone in a Disney Parade!
… and Minnie, too
I didn’t have the chance to talk to him and ask for a wish.
Maybe, I could just ask Aladdin to wish something for me. Haha!
I took an advantage of Snow White not looking. Haha!
Peter Pan and Alice together in one cart
One of Cinderella’s mice held my hand
Such a lovely couple!
Cinderella’s Evil Stepmom
One of Cinderella’s Evil Stepsisters
Beauty and the hiding Beast
The Awake Beauty and her Prince
It’s indescribable. I wish I could live there inside.
Inside, there is a Disney Dream Suite that guests can stay on if they are promotion winners.
Liberty Square is like an American Revolutionary colonial town.
Compared to other rides, the waiting time here is less. Normally, the waiting time ranges from 40 to 1 hour, depending on the popularity of the ride.
It’s not scary! It’s fun! You can find it inside the Liberty Square.
“Welcome, foolish mortals, to the Haunted Mansion. I am your ghost host.”
The Hall of Presidents is a multi-media presentation featuring the presidents of the United States.
I’d like you to meet my childhood friends!
I wish I could take Snow White’s place. Haha!
Among the characters, Peter Pan is the most handsome, followed by Goofy. Haha!
The most popular and adorable couple!
I was really amazed by this.
Tomorrowland is a portrayal of Disney’s view of the future. It is a home to Space Mountain, Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor, Stitch’s Great Escape and Carousel of Progress.
This is the inside of the Space Mountain ride. It took us more than an hour to reach the end of the line but it was worth the wait. This is my most favorite ride in the Magic Kingdom.
I got disappointed with this one. If you don’t want your time to be wasted, do not enter this ride.
This ride is called Tomorrowland Speedway.
Ready, Set, Go!
My sister taking a peek inside the Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs’ Mine. It is a steel roller coaster, under construction in Fantasyland, based on the classic story of Walt Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
Come one! Come all! This is a part of Fantasyland which was inspired by the classic Disney film Dumbo.
The Barnstormer is a roller coaster perfect for kids…. or maybe, for you, too.
Welcome to Fantasyland Station. There is a railroad circling the theme park. It will save you time and energy.
Ariel’s Grotto, located in Fantasyland, serves as a meet and greet area for The Little Mermaid.
Ariel is my most favorite Disney princess. That’s why I got disappointed when I saw the one portraying her character because she doesn’t fully look like her.
Gaston’s Tavern is a restaurant featuring Gaston from Beauty and the Beast.
In Peter Pan’s Flight , you can sail above London by boarding a pirate galleon to Never Land.
If you don’t mind hearing the song “It’s a Small World,” go to this ride. It’s a classic that you wouldn’t want to miss.
This is the line to the ride.
The ‘It’s a Small World’ ride will bring you on a little boat tour around the world.
I think this is the African region. I saw one Filipina doll, too but they place it in the tropical region, with Hawaii, and not in Asia.
Even their bath rooms are for prince and princesses.
We spent much of our time in Fantasyland.
The Mad Tea Party is where you can spin ’round and ’round inside a giant teacup.
“Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, Disney World proudly presents our spectacular festival pageant of nighttime magic and imagination in thousands of sparkling lights and electro-synthe-magnetic musical sounds. The Main Street Electrical Parade!”
Disney’s Electrical Parade is the best parade that I’ve ever seen! Seeing the Disney characters and princesses parading down the street in their spectacular costumes and floats was one of the highlights of my Florida trip.
Here’s Tinkerbell, leading the way!
Alice saying hello
Hello, Fairy Godmother!
… and here comes the other characters
I called Prince Charming and made a give-me-the-shoe signal. Fortunately, he noticed me and tried to give me the shoe. *I almost died*
Oh, Peter! :”)
Isn’t he charming?
Are you looking for Snow White? Snow White actually noticed my minnie mouse bow. She told me, “nice bow,” while pointing to her bow.
There was also this mouse dancer, one of Cinderella’s mice I guess, who stopped dancing to ask me where I’m from. I really felt special that night.
I froze when the castle stated changing from one Disney scene to another. Both of the pre-show and the “Wishes” fireworks display were breath taking. The Wreck-It-Ralph scene is my favorite part of the pre-show and the Tinkerbell stunt, where she flies over the crowd to start the show, is my favorite part of the “Wishes” fireworks display.
The castle back on its original color.
The fun bonding with my relatives, some rides, parades, castle projection show and fireworks display made my Disney World experience magical and worth-remembering.
