Your ultimate vacation spot might be a tropical beach or an African safari. Maybe faraway European villages and fairytale castles are more your speed. It would likely need to include some gourmet food and amazing adventure. Throw in a few celebrity sightings and memorable fireworks too. Walt Disney World offers all of these things in one magical place. Here are my top 9 reasons why Disney is the ultimate vacation spot!
9. Adults can wear mouse ears all day-
Really where else can a grown adult wear Mickey Mouse ears without raising a few eyebrows? Proudly wear your Disney attire from sun up to sun down. Little girls turn into princesses, spunky boys become pirates, and parents are the super heroes on this vacation!
8. It’s acceptable to sprinkle strangers with Pixie Dust-
I want my vacation spot to have some magic and wonder. Walt Disney World is filled with it! Glittering dust or not, sometimes just a friendly smile from a Cast Member makes the difference. Everyone is in character here and it’s no doubt the happiest place on earth. There is just something special about this place.
7. Magical fireworks every night-
At Disney you don’t have to plan around holidays and special events. Come here and you will get an amazing fireworks show every night of the week. Not just any fireworks show, likely the most memorable display you will ever see. You may even spot Tinkerbell!
6. Go on a safari and scale Mt. Everest in one day-
Disney’s Animal Kingdom gives visitors the chance to experience an African safari on Kilimanjaro Safaris. You may never make it to Africa in your lifetime but on this ride you will feel like you are there. Jump off your safari and head over to Expedition Everest, here you will speed through the Himalayan Mountains on the coaster train! Now this is an adventure you will find at no other vacation spot.
5. Have Breakfast in Norway and Dinner in Germany-
Epcot is the only vacation location where you can dine around the world in a single day. Start out with a Disney Princess character breakfast at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Norway. After feasting on scandinavian delights in a medieval castle you can travel over to Germany. Here you can experience Oktoberfest all year long at the Biergarten Restaurant. While you are indulging you might as well swing into china for a cup of tea and top it off with a gelato from Italy!
4. Take a Selfie with a Princess-
Unless you are pretty special it is highly unlikely you will be taking selfies with Princesses in your lifetime! Meet & Greet’s offer guests the opportunity to meet and take pics with the world’s favorite Disney celebrities. Become BFF with Princess Belle, whisper a few secrets with Tinker Bell or just pal around with Mickey Mouse.
3. Snack all day long with no guilt-
Oh the Disney snacks and treats, it’s almost my sole reason to visit. A vacation to Walt Disney World is a free pass to try all the fun snacks the park has to offer. Dole Whips, Mickey Ice Cream Bars, Turkey Legs, and fresh popped popcorn to name a few. The list could go on and on. The Disney Dining Plan makes snagging these delightful snacks a little bit easier. We can’t have a wasted snack credits!
2. Stay overnight in a tropical paradise and an African Village-
The accommodations at Walt Disney World are beautiful and top notch. These resorts boast some of the most creative themes, luxurious pools, and amazing restaurants. They truly offer something for every guest’s taste and budget!
1. Live the magic that only happens here-
The top reason Disney is the ultimate vacation spot is the magical experiences that happen while you visit. It may be the twinkle in your toddlers’ eyes or the first gigantic grin you have seen on your teen’s face in over a year. The goosebumps you feel when reminiscing about your childhood visit and watching your own child experience the same magic. The butterflies in your stomach when you drop down Splash Mountain. Whatever the feeling may be, it is no doubt the happiest vacation on earth!
