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.

  1. 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!

  2. 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!

  3. 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 🙂 )
