Please join me in welcoming Belinda as an official writer for The Affordable Mouse. You may remember some guest posts she has done in the past, and I am thrilled that she is now a permanent part of our family! Welcome Belinda!!
There I am waiting in line, feeling the anticipation of the wonderment that awaits me inside this beautiful theater. The line moves, there I am going in to grab my seat, with tissues in hand, I stake my place. I then wait patiently as my heart pounds with emotional excitement for the most wonderful 3D show Disney has every created.Mickey’s Philharmagic is an all-time favorite attraction of mine that gets better and better every time I see it. The only problem is, I can’t sit through it without the emotional tears filling up. With the 3D effect, we as guests get to experience some of the most compelling Disney animation scenes to ever hit the screen. There you are with Simba, while he awaits to be king, hearing the music, seeing the larger than life animals dance right before your eyes; How about dining with Belle in the dining room scene of Beauty and the Beast. The dishes sing and dance, bottles of champagne burst into fountains of pink and you are right in the middle of the action, you are there! The two scenes that pull at my heart strings and bring tears of Disney emotion, excitement and overwhelming joy is The Little Mermaid, where Ariel sings, “ Part of your World,”. You are engulfed in the ocean, surrounded by all of her dingle hoppers; the scenes and the music are breathtaking. It is then that I realize I am on a magic carpet, flying with Aladdin to a “Whole New World,” This is such a romantic and special moment for me that I can no longer fight back the tears. There are many other amazing scenes along the way, Fantasia, Peter Pan and the Mickey Mouse March.
This is an attraction not to be missed. If you’re like me and have always wanted to jump in the middle of one of Disney’s beloved animated films, this is the place to do it! Ride a magic carpet, dine with Belle, and be king with Simba at Mickey’s Philharmagic! The emotion, excitement and magic of Disney await and if Disney tugs at your heart just as it does mine, you might want to grab some tissues!
Keep Believing, Belinda

In her words: “I am happily married to my high school sweetheart and we have two four legged kids, our cat Simba and our dog Harley. My husband and I have been to Disney 16+ times, been aboard Disney Cruise Line 5+ times and have had a vow renewal wedding aboard the Disney Magic! We have a room in our home we call our happy place. It is wall to wall Disney and nothing more. Not a day goes by that I’m not in my room basking in the happiness that only Disney can create. My hope is to share with all of you, the love and passion that I have for Disney while embracing the magic of Walt’s dream. I am honored to be a contributor for The Affordable Mouse, and look forward to helping spread a little Disney magic.”
