Terrific Tuesdays: Nighttime Epcot

No matter how many times you visit EPCOT, for me, seeing it at night is a whole new experience. During the day, everything is visible, everything is bright and cheery, but at night things become cozier, more romantic, more exotic, more exciting.

Disney with Special Needs Parks Breakdown: Surviving Main Street U.S.A.

There's nothing quite like approaching the Magic Kingdom train station but hat excitement can get tempered, however, when you notice the somewhat chaotic energy around you that can get even worse when you actually make it onto Main Street USA.

Disney with Special Needs Park Breakdown: Blasting Off with Space Mountain

Last time we talked about how to make it through what can seem like a sensory gauntlet on Main Street U.S.A. Today we are going to take a moment to gaze lovingly at Cinderella Castle and then take a right and head into Tomorrowland. I am a big lover of Tomorrowland. It has fabulous music. Things are shiny. And it is home to two of my very favorite rides in all of Disney World — the PeopleMover (which just so happens to be the first Magic Kingdom ride that Tutu, Hubby, Baby, and I rode on our first trip, and then the first Disney World ride we brought Bubba on on his first trip) and Space Mountain.

For many, a visit to Walt Disney World during the Holiday Season would not be complete without seeing the Candlelight Processional. Performed 3 times each night at Epcot, from the day after Thanksgiving until Dec. 30, this moving concert tells the story of the Nativity, featuring a 50-piece orchestra, celebrity narrator and a massed choir made up of choirs (including many student/school groups) from around the country. It’s a beautiful, amazing, and inspirational way to celebrate the season. But don’t take my word for it. Take a few minutes to get an idea of what it is all about. Continue reading

Terrific Tuesdays: Nighttime Epcot

No matter how many times you visit EPCOT, for me, seeing it at night is a whole new experience. Disney does such a great job changing the atmosphere from the day light hours to the night time hours. During the day, everything is visible, everything is bright and cheery, but at night things become cozier, more romantic, more exotic, more exciting. This is especially true at EPCOT, and as you see Space Ship Earth in the dark towering above the entrance glowing with such vivid lights, it just takes my breath away every time. Continue reading
