Magical Blogorail: What Would You Do with Three Hours Alone at WDW?

Welcome to those of you joining me from A World View and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 2nd stop on our Magical Blogorail.

Today the Magical Blogorail answers a very interesting question...

What would I do with three hours alone in Walt Disney World? Well, when I traveled by myself to meet my brother in 2007 and had an evening alone, I strolled from Port Orleans Riverside to PO French Quarter for some dinner. Then I took a few pictures and enjoyed a boat ride to Downtown Disney. There, I splurged on a Precious Moments Disney bride and groom figure. I also bought some bath bombs from Basin and a couple of glasses and tiny bottles of wine from Mickey's Kitchen. After my boat ride back to my resort, I concluded the evening with a nice soak in the tub, a glass of wine and a good book.

On my trip last week, I had a couple of opportunities for brief breaks from the kiddos and my parents. In those cases, I did some shopping, took photos for future blog use and enjoyed coffee and part of a carrot cake cookie.

As a stay-at-home mom with no family nearby, the thought of three hours all to myself, at Disney or otherwise, is quite a luxury. The first thing that comes to mind is the Wild Africa Trek at Animal Kingdom. Everyone who has gone says it is amazing. That's a pricy option, though, so my second choice would be a photo stroll through World Showcase. I just love it there and having the time to really set up shots and play with settings on my camera would be lots of fun. And maybe I could finally try a grey goose slush.

Thank you for joining me today. Your next stop on the Magical Blogorail Loop is Disney Donna Kay.

  1. As a busy mom myself I can so relate to your 3 hours! I'd love to try the Wild Africa Trek!!

  2. I would love to do Wild Africa Trek also... but I really love Port Orleans (both sides) and there is so much to enjoy, such as an evening of Ye Ha Bob.

  3. I know exactly what you mean about time alone being a luxury. I would love to do Wild Africa Trek but I better do that one with Dakota or he would never forgive me!
