Welcome to those of you joining me from A World View and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the Final stop on our Magical Blogorail.
My favorite time to visit Walt Disney World
First, time of day. I just love the parks at night when we have lingered after the fireworks. I don't often get to stay late like this anymore since the kiddos need to get back to the room for bed but occasionally, thanks to grandparents, I am sprung from mommy duty and can play late in the parks. Everyone else scurries for the buses but this is a fabulous time of day to capture a few pictures of the castle, pavilions, etc without anyone around. I love to stroll toward the park exit enjoying the relative calm, listening to the music, taking in the details. This is also a wonderful time to chat with Cast Members who aren't in a hurry either. We've had some terrific Cast Member interactions during these late evening hours.
Favorite time of year: Fall I'm a huge fan of the Food and Wine Festival. World Showcase is my favorite part of Walt Disney World and it's only made better by the addition of all of the yummy food and beverage choices. Seriously, how can you beat walking around the gorgeous promenade sampling tasty treats inspired by cultures from around the world? This year we are catching the very end of the festival in hopes of also taking in the first part of the Christmas decorations.
Fall is also a great time to participate in a Disney race. Over the years, I've run in a number of 5k or 10k races during this season. RunDisney is offering two big race weekends this year. During the first weekend of F&W will be the Tower of Terror 10 miler. The Wine & Dine Half Marathon is the last weekend of the festival. I was planning on running the half this year but after our May trip with the girls, I decided a night race was just a bad idea while traveling with small kids. As much as I want to run that race, I'm not willing to kill my whole trip for it. Traveling with little ones is tiring and running 13.1 miles in the middle of the night might not be my best plan. I'm going to find a local goal race for this year and jump back in with RunDisney another year.
When do you like to visit Disney Parks? Are you a night owl or an early bird? Does fall tickle your fancy or do you prefer another season?
