Ahh, time again for another Destination Disney, hosted by Heidi. This week's theme is the Magic Kingdom. I love the MK! It is by far my family's favorite park. Every trip to Disney we take, the first day (or afternoon as the case may be) is spent at MK park. Always. It just isn't a Disney trip for us without it! :)
I mentioned in the previous DD post about someday getting my photos organized and able to share more easily. Well, folks, the painful (not kidding here) process has begun. So I am able to share a few scanned older photos I have come across in my endeavors.
Did you know, late in 1996, to celebrate the park's bday, they redecorated the castle as a bday cake?
Okay, going pretty far back here, probably '93 maybe '94. This is the submarine you rode for the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea ride. While MK is probably a favorite for people because it has very classic rides, rides that have been around a while and that many generations have enjoyed, it does change and mix things up to attract newer audiences. For instance, I miss the Lion King show at MK, but LOVE the 3D movie, Mickey's Philharmagic, that took it's place. And there was an uproar over removing Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, but who doesn't love the Winnie the Pooh ride that took it's place?
Okay, I'm about to cry here, so I'll wrap it up. MK is the best of the 4 parks, imo, because it started it all, was Walt's "baby", and has something for everyone in your family. Go there. Now. And label your pictures when you get home.
