I think everyone in our family loves this ride. It's gotten too much of a squeeze to ride together though as the kids have gotten bigger, but it's still a must do (several times) each trip. I wish the ride weren't so short! Look at the wonderful details in this ride! The ceiling, the center pole, the tea cups themselves!
A few fun little facts about this ride!
This is one of the original rides from when Disney World opened in 1971. It also, unlike it's Disneyland counterpart, has a roof, which not only provides shade in the hot summers, bur keeps it running, even in the rain! While rumors have it that the purple teacups are fastest at spinning, (and I'm not sure how that started) I've ridden in every color, and haven't noticed a difference, myself. Have you?
2018 is going to be chock full of wonderful Disney movies!! I have to admit, I want to see almost all of them!!
BuzzFeed did such a wonderful job on the list a while back, there's no way I could replicate it as well, so click over on the link above, take a peep, then tell me which one you are looking forward to! I started to tell you the ones I'm most excited about, then I realized, it was just about everything on the list!! It's going to be a great year for movies! Maybe I should go ahead and join the Disney Movie Club like I've been debating!
Whew, with the holidays and everyone taking turns being sick, Spotlight Sundays have been missing for a while!
Today's spotlight is on the soaps and shampoos. Kind of weird, maybe, but like everything else Disney likes to evolve, so too, do their complimentary hygiene items. From the cute, Mickey topped bottles in 2014, and 2015, to the spa like items in 2016 and 2017, to the now refillable, locked up tight items. I'm not sure how I feel about that! You spend so much on a hotel room, it's nice to take those adorable extra little Disney soaps home. I'm sure it will save Disney a lot in the long run, but I'm kind of hoping they'll reverse this change. I've not heard yet what they will be doing for hand soap so I'm curious as to if they keep the bars, or have another, lockable dispenser.
How do you feel?
This year's Advent Calendars are a little different! They have regular ones, sent from their Grandmother in Texas, but we also stumbled across these Star Wars ones at Target. There were a few different designs, and they were $3.50 each, a little more than a regular advent calendar, but they were Star Wars!
Every day's chocolates are the same, it says Star Wars, though there are two different shapes, oval (shown below) and rectangular, more of the classic look, which at first made the boys sad, but I'm thinking after Christmas I'll save the candy mold, so that I can reuse them (maybe?) to make my own Star Wars chocolates, or mold candy melts for cupcakes in the future. Makes me want to find some Disney ones now, too!
While I think the classic Cinderella Castle shot is one most anyone could recognize, on our last trip I noticed that depending on what angle you stood at, it was actually a little more beautiful that from the front, but most impressive of all (to me) was that such care was put into each detail. Look at this shot! Just beautiful!
It's the attention to detail that really adds that special touch of magic Disney is so well known for!
