Another fun addition to our series of Disney Parks Blog posts featuring the Walt Disney World Moms Panel comes from one of our Florida-based panelists, Suzannah DiMarzio. As a panelist who lives fairly close to the magic, she can visit the parks after dinner on a whim!
“If I had two hours at Walt Disney World Resort to make a lifelong memory, I would arrive at Magic Kingdom Park after dinner so that the heat of the day will have already passed. In my dream situation, I will have enjoyed the day at the Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa while my children are being entertained by their dad, so that I’m rested and rejuvenated for the night!
Since we are locals, we usually don’t stop and enjoy the fun snacks the Walt Disney World Resort has to offer. My 2 year old is in love with the popcorn, my 10-year-old daughter and I both love the Dole Whips at Aloha Isle in Adventureland, and my 12-year-old son loves the classic Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bars. My husband prefers the Mickey Ice Cream Sandwich.
We would purchase our snacks and then we’d settle in for some nighttime magic that only Disney Parks can provide: the Main Street Electrical Parade and the all-new “The Magic, The Memories, and You!” castle projection show. And not to be forgotten, the Wishes Nighttime Spectacular fireworks make the hairs on the back of my neck stand up!
By the end of the evening, I will be sobbing. I cry at pretty much all Disney shows and my family will embarrassingly walk me out of Magic Kingdom Park. Good stuff!”
