Most people will tell you that going to Walt Disney World is a one in a lifetime opportunity. I’m excited to say that it’s more than that for us. I will always return to Disney and there are many reasons for that. Every person in my family feels the same way. Disney is a magical place for us. It’s a place where my family enjoys making memories. It’s worth the sacrifice. Here’s why I’ll always return:
Seeing Magic Through the Eyes of a Toddler
I don’t care who you are adults and toddlers see things differently. Toddlers see things with such excitement and innocence. I’d say one reason I will always return to Disney World is because I love seeing Disney through the eyes of a toddler. The way a toddler smiles at Mickey Mouse or enjoys an ice cream cone in such a carefree way.
Finally Make Those Height Requirements
I have been to Disney World several times. However, my kids weren’t always the right height requirements for enjoying everything that Disney World has to offer. The more you go, the more you can explore and enjoy at Disney World. I’ve always enjoyed taking my kids at different stages in their life. It’s been a neat experience to see them enjoy Disney as a baby, toddler, teenager, and eventually as an adult.
I’m Ready to Enjoy Evening Special Events
There comes a time in everyone’s parenting where they can finally bring their kids to fun events. Disney World has tons of evening special events that I want to attend. There are festivals and parties that I want to attend. You can’t attend these special events if you only go to Disney World once in your life. Many of these events are also held 7pm to midnight, so not ideal with my 2-4 year old. I will always return to Disney World because there are a lot of things I want to experience still.
Drinking Around the World with My 21 Year Old Daughter
As our children get older, there are different experiences at Disney to enjoy. One of those experiences is drinking around the world. I can’t wait to visit with my daughter and enjoy something she wouldn’t have been able to do at other ages.
Quick Glance at the Past 5 Years at Disney
If you visited Disney World more than 5 years ago, it may be worth your time and energy to return. Some amazing things have happened in the past 5 years. Disney continues to expand and add features that were never there before. Here are some of my favorite additions to Disney within the past 5 years.
Since the movie Frozen wasn’t around 5 years ago, you better believe that it has hit Disney like nothing else. You can head to Hollywood Studios to enjoy a Frozen style sing along. You can do Disney princess meet and greets in their Summerhaus in Epcot’s Norway pavilion or take in their great new ride! Of course, you can also find various Frozen goodies throughout the parks.
Starbucks is Now a Thing
If you love Starbucks, then you will love that there is a Starbucks at all four Disney theme parks plus two in Disney Springs.
Star Wars Galaxy Edge
Perhaps one of the most exciting changes is the Star Wars Galaxy Edge. This place is out of this world. The next time you head to Disney World, you’ll be able to enjoy it visit the planet Batuu. There you can ride the Millennium Falcon, Face the Resistance, build a droid or go on a search for scrap metal and end up building a light saber in Savi’s Workshop
Toy Story Land
Step into this oversized land and feel like a toy in. Does your family have a little bit of a competitive spirit? Toy Story Midway Mania is for you! Love a little thrill? Take a ride on Slinky Dog Dash. Your third chance for fun is Alien Swirling Saucers. It’s not all about the attractions though, take in the Green Army Band, have your picture taken with Buzz, Bo Peep or Woody or even visit the bathrooms to see incredible Imagineering! Be sure to visit during the day and at night for the full effect.
Pandora: World of Avatar
Did you love the movie? Are you looking for a thrill? Pandora: Flight of Passage let’s you fly on the back of a banshee! (Be sure to get your fast past at the 60 day window or you will find a 90-150 minute standby time). You can ever stop at the Rookery and adopt your own Banshee to take home. Check out the Shaman of Songs as you float down the Na’vi River. Not into rides, we’ve got you covered. Listen to the Pandora Drummers – Swotu Waya or meet the Pandora Ranger. There really is something for everyone.
We didn’t even talk about all the new resorts like Disney’s Gran Destino Tower or Disney’s Riviera Resort. There is always so much to see and do!
Do you plan on returning to Disney World over and over again? I’d love to hear why you love it!
