Words of Walt

“People still think of me as a cartoonist, but the only thing I lift a pen or pencil for these days is to sign a contract, a check, or an autograph.”

It still amazes me to think of Walt’s humble beginnings and the empire that he has built.  He started as a struggling cartoonist and was able to create something truly wonderful.

Musical Monday- Music of the Parks pt. 3

One of my favorite ways to beat the Disney Blues (a prolonged period of time without a Disney trip) is to listen to music from the Disney parks on YouTube. The last two Monday’s I’ve featured music from the parks (Illuminations soundtrack, and the Magic Kingdom Entrance loop).  Today’s selection comes from The Seas with Nemo and Friends pavilion at Epcot.  To me this is one of the most relaxing tracks to listen to.  It’s very peaceful, and when I close my eyes I can picture myself in that pavilion watching the fish swim in the grand aquarium.

Prior to the pavilion being called “The Seas with Nemo and Friends” the pavilion was called “The Living Seas” and it also has a very calming soundtrack.

I have come home several times to find my husband (who works from home) listening to one of these loops as he works.  These two tracks provide easy listening while getting you in a Disney mood 🙂

Words of Walt- Animated Films

“Because the eye is the most sensitive and dependable of our sense organs, the motion picture offers the widest, direct avenue to our emotions.  Whereas the still picture can suggest only a fragment of fact or fiction, the cartoon-in-motion is without limit in communicating ideas, events, and human relations.”

Musical Monday- Magic Kingdom

One of my favorite thing to do when I’m missing Disney is to listen to Disney music on YouTube.  The next few Mondays I will be sharing some of my music from the parks to listen to!  If you’re planning your next trip or going through Disney withdraw check out the park loops etc. on YouTube 🙂

Today’s music is a fun loop that will really get you in the Disney spirit!  This upbeat selection is the entrance loop from the Magic Kingdom.  The loop is about an hour long and really make you feel like you’re “leaving  today, and entering the world of yesterday, tomorrow, and fantasy.”

Words of Walt- Mickey Mouse

This is probably one of the most famous quotes by Walt Disney, and one of my all time favorites-

“I only hope that we never lose sight of one thing- that it was all started by a mouse.”

To me this quote is a symbol and a beacon of what Disney is.  There is SO much that goes on at Disney on a daily basis.  So much to see and do, but don’t lose sight of the fact that it was all started by a mouse, something small.  It’s not always about the large moments, sometimes it’s about the small things.

What Would I Fast Pass- Magic Kingdom

One of the questions that I am asked often is what 3 fast passes to select.  The Magic Kingdom has the widest selection of fast passes to choose from.  There are rides, attractions, and parades and the combinations are seemingly endless.

So if my husband and I only have 1 day to spend at the Magic Kingdom our 3 fast passes are

  1. Space Mountain
  2. Splash Mountain
  3. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.

These selections are made based on rides that are not only our favorites, but ones that consistently have longer lines.  I also choose these as my 3 because we don’t have children, all three of these have height restrictions that we don’t have to worry about as adults. (Next week I will follow up with suggestions if you do have littles!)

If we have a second day at the Magic Kingdom my fast pass combinations would be slightly different.

Day 1

  1. Space Mountain
  2. 7 Dwarf Mine Train
  3. Splash Mountain

Day 2

  1. Space Mountain
  2. Flight of Peter Pan
  3. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

Now I realize that Space Mountain is on there twice, but I REALLY love that ride 🙂

With you “My Disney Experience” page you can begin to book your fast passes up to 60 days in advance when you’re staying on Disney Property or up to 30 days in advance when you’re staying off Disney property.  All of your fast pass selections will be stored on your magic band, or your ticket.
