We are intense planners when it comes to our Disney trips...complete with spreadsheets and immensely planned agendas. Towards the end of our vacation things change a bit though. The last few days are always left with no dining reservations, and no real planned park days.
It was on one of these relaxed touring days that Adam and I had an idea. What if we spent the whole day experiencing things that we've NEVER DONE before. Sounds fun right?
We started our day at the Magic Kingdom to meet Merida in her (at the time...) recently opened meet and greet area next to the castle. We never got around to meeting with Rapunzel or Belle who both previously occupied this space, and I hated the idea of missing Merida. The princess herself was as lively and fun as expected. Her backdrop is gorgeous and detailed, but I do miss the little bear brothers.
At Disney Hollywood Studios we had a couple of things on our list. First we had the "pleasure" of watching Lights, Motors, Action. This show debuted in 2005, but we have never felt even the slightest urge to watch it. And guess what? It was horrible. If there is anyone out there who likes this show, I'd appreciate you writing to us to help shine some light on the subject.
We DID however visit Mr. Incredible and Frozone in the animation building! We've passed by these characters dozens of times...always swearing that one day we would stop for a visit. Turns out that these guys are an absolute hoot, and I'm glad that they were part of our new experience day.
We finished our afternoon of exploring by visiting The Great Piggy Bank Adventure, which is a small attraction located inside Innoventions at Epcot. This was the highlight of our day by far. Even thought the attraction is small in scale, it packs in a lot of goofy laughs. Plus, look at that pig? Literally the most adorable thing in the world.
We love trying new things on vacations, but I should note that we've done almost everything at Walt Disney World...so coming up with a days worth of activities can be pretty hard. However, given all the little things at the parks, plus restaurants and resorts...I'm sure you can do it!
What is something at Walt Disney World that you've never done before, but have always wanted to? Let us know over on Twitter, or on Facebook!
