There is no one place on earth more magical in the eyes of a child than Disney’s Magical Kingdom. Awash in a fantasy land of every princess, prince and famous Disney character and ride awaits a place that proudly earns the phrase “Where all your dreams come true”.
As an avid normally off the beaten path kind of traveler, Disney World is not exactly on the list. It is very crowded, very expensive and over the top. Yet, as we are passing through Orlando on our way South for a family cruise it was now or never.
I will be honest in admitting that I still remember my favorite rides from over 30 years ago when we drove all the way from Minnesota in our station wagon to Florida. So yes it must be true that in the eyes of a child Disney is pure, simple magic and one of a kind.

Yes it was so fun to see the kids eyes light up with all the magic!
I love Disney World! We spent our honeymoon there. Looks like you all had a great time.
🙂 The kids loved it especially my little girl Sophia. Her eyes light up so brightly at it all. Was delightful to see!
It must be a great place for children. I certainly would have loved that castle as a little girl. Have a wonderful time.
My daughter just loved it. Lucky for us, we hit it just right before the crowds and had a fun time there. 🙂
I agree, a magical place. My brother worked there for a semester – fun to see the “behind the scenes” part as well!
Must have been really cool to see the behind the scenes at Disney. They do an amazing job at running the place! We had a great time!
I remember when I was there 3 years ago, at the age of 12, and even though I didn’t ride more than one thing beause of the long waiting lines and things being closed due to rain, it was truly magical. The fireworks of course made the top!
Yes Disney is a magical place!
So true! My family will also be taking a break from our cultural travels for some Disney Magic in April. For us the magic is at Epcot, and mom can her fix of about a dozen countries in one evening!
over the top! s
Merry Christmas, Nicole. I hope you and your family had a wonderful day. xxx Ailsa
Thanks Ailsa! You too! 🙂
Nice to do something purely for the kids, Nicole. You do so much for others 🙂
And we’re all kids at heart aren’t we? I was fully aware of the hype and commercialism when I was there, but oh those parades! And as I look at your Magic Kingdom photos, I find myself singing “when you wish upon a star…” (that would make another Six word Saturday 🙂 )
Yes they just loved it. So special to spend this time together as a family! 🙂
