WDW Virtual Countdown Chain: 17 Weeks to Go

17 weeks to go! I can't believe it. Thursday, my WDW Countdown app pinged me to say it was 120 days before our vacation, and I couldn't believe it. It seems so close, almost too close, considering I need to be able to run 13.1 miles by then!

For the countdown this week, I thought I would focus on New Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom! This is one of the "lands" I'm most excited for.

Day 119: The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
This is the newest ride in Walt Disney World, and it has a lot of great buzz.  It is supposed to be fun, and has excellent theming. I'm sure we will love it.

Day 118: The Classic Dumbo Ride
How can you go to WDW and not ride Dumbo? I remember being pleasantly surprised at how high you actually go on this ride when I was in Disneyland. It is actually quite a bit of fun. 

Day 117: Meet Gaston
I am really excited about meeting Gaston, especially since I'm dressing as Belle for marathon day! I just can't wait to tell him how burly and brawny he is.

Day 116: Enchanted Tales with Belle
This is another newish attraction at WDW, less of a ride and more of a story reenactment. You better believe I going to volunteer to be part of the play. I also can't wait to take pictures of Maurise's Cottage.

Day 115: Prince Eric's Castle
Yes, I am all about Beauty and the Beast, but a 2nd favorite would have to be The Little Mermaid, so I can't wait to see Prince Eric's Castle as well!

Day 116: Rapunzel Rest Area
This is just a small thing, but I think the floating lanterns look really pretty. Plus the girl's bathroom here is decorated like Rapunzel painted the walls and ceilings!

Day 115: Meet Aerial at her Grotto
She is one of the top characters on my list that I just have to meet! I'm hoping to meet her both as a mermaid and as a human.

  1. I have never been to Disney World or Disney Land. I love all things Disney, so I don't know why it has never been on my radar to travel to - possibly because I am not a huge amusement park fan. I really want to go back to Orlando just to go to Harry Potter World at Universal Studio's. Now there is a place I could spend days at. * Sarah Grace

  2. I've only been to Disney Land, and Disney World looks like it has a lot more cool stuff. I'd love to go to Ariel's grotto, and I'm a HUGE Beauty and the Best fan. Um...stories with Belle? I would be soooo excited! Love the Rapunzel lanterns. Everything looks so cool! Now you're making me want to plan a Disneyland vacation, even though Piglet is way too young.
