Warning: I’m about to write an entire blog post about Disney World. Just giving you a heads up.
Guys…I love Disney World. And not like “I like it because my child likes it”. No. No, no, no. I like it because I like it all for myself. I want to meet the princesses and ride Dumbo and experience the magic that only Disney can produce. But, mostly, I love the food. If you’ve ever spoken to me about Disney, you know it only takes 2.3 seconds for me to direct the conversation to the food. (A fact evidenced in this very post.) I LOVE IT!
In fact, this past week I have contemplated becoming a Disney blogger and only writing about Disney all the time. I’m pretty sure I’d never run out of things to say and I would love every single, stinkin minute of it. But I feel thats a drastic leap so for now I just want to share with you a few things I’ve learned about Disney lately that fellow Disney lovers might enjoy. If you are not a fellow Disney lover (I’m looking at you, Martin), perhaps you can read this and a teeny, tiny portion of my love will rub off on you.
1. I cannot wait to see this restaurant in person. Be Our Guest restaurant in Magic Kingdom is scheduled to open “in time for the Holidays” – which in Disney-speak could mean anytime between October and December. The details look amazing and Beauty and the Beast is one of my all time favorite Disney movies.
2. I loved reading this story of how Disney celebrated July 4th at Magic Kingdom. 93 year old Louis Lessure, a WWII vet and Purple Heart recipient participated in the park’s daily flag retreat ceremony.
3. Ariel’s getting a castle!! Well, I guess, technically, Prince Eric is getting a castle…but we all know Ariel took over as soon as they got married. They don’t show you that part in the movie, but you know it’s true.
5. Did I mention I’m excited about the new restaurant, Be Our Guest, that’s opening in Magic Kingdom? Well, I am. And it’s not just a restaurant. There’s a whole new section of Fantasy Land themed around Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid. There will be two new castles, several new restaurants/food counters, stores, rides, story time with Belle…I’m excited about it all. Here are a couple portraits that will grace the walls of the New Fantasy Land restaurants.
Alright, I won’t subject you to anymore Disney at the moment. But I can’t promise it won’t happen again in the future. I can’t help myself!
Question: Who else loves Disney?
