Five Things EVERY Adult has the Right to do at Disney World!
There is just something about Disney World! Business people become bear hugging, camera toting, firework loving, Disney guests. As a smile forces its way onto the straight face of a serious adult, the magic begins! Today I am giving you permission to embrace Disney World for what it is! In fact in this post, I’m reading you your “Disney as an adult” rights. Take a moment to soak in these rights and apply them to your Disney trip.
Right #1: You have the right to dance in the street!
What better place is there to dance in the street than Disney World? With interactive street shows like Move it! Shake it! Celebrate it! and Disney Channel Rocks!, you are guaranteed to find a way to let loose and dance in the streets.
Quick tip – Hit up club 626 at the Magic Kingdom. This is a character filled spot made just for dancing like nobody is watching. Nestled in Tomorrowland between Space Mountain and The Carousel of Progress, this spot often features dancing characters and a DJ to help get the party started! This party doesn’t happen every day so check your Times Guide (or app if you are tech savy).
Right #2: You have the right to take pictures with characters!
This might seem like common sense. At any rate, I am stating this as a right to every adult. You absolutely do have the right to take as many photos as you want. It is totally cool for you to geek out over characters. Take it from me, an adult who talks with college aged girls dressed as princesses, as if they are real, true, royalty. No lie! Next time you get the urge, get out your camera and ham it up with your favorite character!
Quick tip – There are a lot of spots where you can ensure tons of characters. My favorite is the Character Spot in Epcot. Mickey and his gang hang out in this photo opp dream come true! You can bring your own camera or have a Disney photographer snap shots of you to put on your Photo Pass card. Hey, and even on a crowded day this wait isn’t too bad and on the plus side…the wait is air conditioned.
Right #3: You have the right to eat ice cream every day!
In Disney, there are no such things as calories. Okay, that was a small lie. But, I say when you are on vacation at Disney World, you are required to eat as much ice cream as possible. My poison? Totally a Mickey’s Premium Ice Cream Bar. But, I would like to add to this right that any and all calories are okay at Disney World. Now, I know this is completely falsified information, but in my defense, I like to think that all that walking creates a balance (girl math). So, while you are there, get an ice cream or sweet treat of your choice EVERY DAY!!!
Quick tip – Ice cream is availible throughout every park at carts. There are many options for “quick” ice cream. As I said earlier, I am a fan of the Mickey’s Premium Bar. The best part is, you can pay with cash or credit and if you are on the dining plan, this counts as a snack!
Right #4: You have the right to wear funny things!
At Disney World, it is perfectly acceptable to wear funny things. Hats with ears, shirts with characters, I even saw these really weird looking Grumpy (as in the dwarf) hat/beard combos on my last trip in March. I say go for the goofy stuff. Just remember, the likelyhood of you seeing someone in the parks in your daily life is slim. I say go for the pirate themed Mickey Ears sir, you have earned them!
Quick tip – Hat’s can be purchased in various gift shops throughout the parks. My favorite (in park) location to buy and personalize those famous ears is found in the Magic Kingdom. The Chapeau is located on Main Street USA and boasts hats to meet your heart’s desire! Plus, you can pick your thread and font to personalize your hat with your name!
Right #5: You have the right to ride what you want!
I am a firm believer that you can ride whatever you want to ride when you are in Disney World. From the scariest of rides like Expedition Everest to rides made for tots like The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, there is no ride that is off limits. With the freedom of height requirements behind us, adulthood sometimes makes people think they shouldn’t ride this or sit through that. There are no age limit requirments. You can fly the Magic Carpets of Aladdin, you can spin to your little heart’s content on the tea cups, and yes, you may sit through as many shows of Disney Jr. Live on Stage as you can stomach (good luck). The World is yours, savor it.
Quick tip – some of my favorite rides and attractions are the ones I remember from my childhood. I can’t pass up goofy childhood favorites like The Country Bears Jamboree. If you you have been to Disney World in the past, ride those favorites with no shame. If this is your first trip, remember, everyone is a kid at Disney World and ride on!!!
