Well, what can I say? Magic Kingdom has always been my favorite park – I mean, it IS the happiest place on earth. Today, it was EPIC!
I knew the minute the monorail arrived we were going to have the best.day.ever!
We hit all the major rides except Big Thunder Mountain (it was closed for cleaning when we were in that area) and the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train – but we are luckily going to Magic Kingdom on Thursday and those will be our top priority!
People keep asking, “What is not open?”. Well, ALMOST everything IS open! The only ride I have noticed that is not open so far is the People Mover in Tomorrowland. There are not as many snack stations open and some of the smaller stores are closed, but we have not had to search for snacks, drinks or souvenirs at all!
All of the rides close on a rotating schedule for cleaning, so occasionally a ride will be shut down when you want to go on it but it isn’t closed for long.
There are sanitation stations EVERYWHERE, everyone is masked, each and every ride queue is comfortably distanced, there are fabulous pop up parades and musical performances and not having to dodge people left and right or get run over by strollers or scooters was priceless!
The truth is, this is the most perfect, magical time to be at Disney. Never again will there be so few visitors and this is such a gift!!! We have done Disney’s special events in the past (Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and also a Disney Vacation Club Members Only event) and there are FAR FEWER people here now then there were during those events! We are loving every steamy minute of this experience!!!
Stick around because tomorrow is EPCOT!! EPCOT is experiencing so many changes right now, but I know we can count on some great rides, short lines and the International Food and Wine Festival!!! My dream come true!!!!
