2013: Florida Spring Break Trip 2013: Magic Kingdom
Our third day in Florida was spent at Walt Disney World. If you haven’t figured out from my blog yet, when I am on vacation I don’t like to sleep in and sit by the pool – for me it is all about experiencing new things! So we were at the park from when it opened until when it closed on this day!
Disney Tip: Free Maps – The envelope that I set on the right page is actually a free set of very classy maps that you can order from Disney before your trip. I never take them on the trip because I don’t want for them to get destroyed. I ordered and received these ahead of time and actually gave them to my son at Christmas time as a gift as my way of revealing to him that we were going to go. You can order your own maps at http://customizedmaps.disney.go.com/
I wish that I could say that the Disney Title on the left hand page was something that I created, but I bought it on Ebay. I usually try and search Ebay for items like this even before I take a trip so that I know what my options are (and prices), so that I can compare to items that I might be able to purchase in the location.
Other Ephemera on the page include the 3 day ticket card, and a pair of 3D glasses from one of the shows.
As I mentioned earlier we stayed until the Park closed, so we had a great opportunity to see the electric light parade and the closing firework display. If you haven’t had opportunity to see what the closing shows entails, it is definitely worth staying for to intake all of the special effects.
Disney Tip: Electric Parade and Fireworks Show: About an hour ahead of time we sat on the edge of the road on the castle side of the circle drive. We had great seats for the electric light parade, and then we just swiveled around and waited another hour and a half in the same spot for the fireworks and castle display. While we did a lot of sitting, we had great seats and had closeup views of both events.
