Changes That May Be Coming To Walt Disney World

Hey everyone! Today we are going to be talking about some of the changes that may be coming to Walt Disney World this year. It’s been a weird year for Disney, and as Disney plans to re-open in the coming weeks, there will be a lot of changes made to how the parks function. Universal and Seaworld have been open for a little while now, and I feel like it was smart of Disney to watch how their re-opening worked. Let’s get into our discussion of some of the changes that may be coming to Walt Disney World.

Increase In Virtual Lines

Disney introduces virtual queueing at its newest attraction

Disney isn’t a total stranger to virtual lines, and actually… it really worked well for them when Rise of the Resistance opened up. I personally was able to use the app to join a ‘boarding group’ for the ride and it was pretty nice not having to stand in a technically 5 hour line. But will this work for all major rides in Disney World? I can think of a few rides that this could be a really good change for! Slinky Dog, Flight of Passage, Space Mountain and more. I would gladly accept the virtual line change if Disney does decide to go this route.

Wearing A Face Mask Throughout The Park

Disney Introduces Cloth Face Masks and Donations for Families and ...

This will probably be a given when visiting the Parks this summer, if not year. This is the main number one reason why going to Disney during this time is a no for me. I don’t feel comfortable wearing a mask in Walmart for over 30 minutes. It restricts my breathing and is just super uncomfortable, so I barely go to Walmart due to that reason. Imagine being in a park for hours having to wear it? Woof.

Limited Amount of People

I think one of the most obvious things Disney will do is probably cap the amount of people that can come into the parks to a very small amount. This will probably be a route Disney takes since there are a lot of people wanting to come back.

Sanitizing Stations

Disneyland is closing because of coronavirus but Walt Disney World ...

Imagine you’ll be seeing a lot of these around the parks if you visit…

Character Meet and Greets?

You Should Not Miss Meet And Greet Of These Characters When You Go ...

I honestly don’t know how this is going to work, but I doubt Disneyworld will send out cast members with masks on. I just don’t think meet and greets will be a thing.

Sit In Dining?

33 Best (and Worst!) Disney World Restaurants - Disney Trippers

I just don’t know how Disney is going to do the whole dining thing. It would have to be seriously cut down, and buffets? Like is Chef Mickey’s even going to be a thing?? Are reservations going to be extremely hard to come by?

Social Distancing Markers

Social Distancing, Disney Edition (OC) Day 1: The Lion King. Stay ...

I feel like this is a given. Disney 100% is going to have markers everywhere to show where people can stand. Cast members will probably stationed so that this can be truly inforced as well.

Epcot Renovation

Epcot 'Reimagining' Details Announced - Disney Tourist Blog

My biggest fear from this whole thing is that the Epcot renovation is going to be completely messed up. I really was excited to see how this would all look, but unfortunately… I think a lot of cuts are going to be made to Epcot. *inserts extreme sad face*

Ranking Disney Movies

Hello everyone and Happy Friday! Today I just wanted to do a quick post and rank all of the Disney movies as well as Pixar movies. Just a fun small post for a Friday, and nothing COVID-19 related because I think we all really need a break from it all. I was able to make these charts using tiermaker.com where they have a lot of topics you can basically rank and tier. You can make book tiers, music, movies, video games and a lot more. Definitely check out that website because I’ve seen it circling around booktube and now the bookblogging community, so yeah. Let’s just get right into my rankings! 🙂


Well here it is! All of my Disney movies ranked. Basically, Tier 1 is kind of the lower level movies/movie I just haven’t enjoyed. Tier 2 movies are ehh. Tier 3 is ok movies that could be better. tier 4 is good movies but doesn’t reach Tier 5 status which is like the holy grail. Now not all Disney movies are listed here, but these are the pretty big ones. Of course Lilo & Stitch and Toy Story made it to Tier 5 because they are the best movies Disney has probably ever created.

Now, we are going to go ahead and rank just the Disney Pixar movies since a lot were missing from the original Disney movies list. The tier’s work the same way as above.

This chart was definitely easier to make. There are certain Pixar movies I love and certain ones I just do not care for. As you can tell most of the sequels to movies get lower ratings than their previous movies (other than the incredibles because that second movie was absolutely incredible), but yeah.

How would you guys go about ranking some of your favorite Disney movies? Do you agree with my tiermaker or would you change some things around? Let me know!

How to Adult at Disney

When most people think Disney World, they think Mickey Mouse, Cinderella’s castle, and families making memories that will last with them forever. But what if you aren’t traveling to Walt Disney World with a family? Maybe you’re visiting WDW on a girls trip, a honeymoon, celebrating a wedding anniversary, or just wanting to go on a vacation with your significant other, you may not want to do what every typical family does when going to Walt Disney World. You of course still want to make those memories, but maybe in a more adult fashion. You may be surprised, but Disney has a variety of options that are not intended for kids and today, I will be sharing my list of things you can do in Disney as an adult. Let’s get into it shall we?


WDW Bars

Disney has a lot of options on where you can go to get a drink, but it won’t be like your normal bar/pubs back at home. There are so many different and interesting bars around WDW where you most likely won’t find any children. The first one our list is Animal Kingdom’s Nomad Lounge. I have seen Nomad Lounge, but haven’t had any drinks but let me tell you, the experience is one you won’t find much of in WDW. When you enter Nomad Lounge, it’s like you are entering another world that is far more calm and peaceful than the world that is WDW.

Nomad Lounge has tons of beautiful scenery and has a ton of history behind it, so I would definitely recommend you check that out.

Next we have Oga’s Cantina in Disney’s Hollywood Studios over in Galaxy’s Edge. I have actually been in the Cantina and wow is it incredible. It isn’t as quiet but they have a lot of interesting drinks and cocktails, not your normal beer and wine options. I promise you, everything looks pretty weird on the menu, but once you actually find a flavor you might like ugh… the drink options are so good! I think Galaxy’s Edge (Blackspire Outpost) is a pretty adult-ish scene anyways, as I feel like anyone can enjoy this section of Hollywood Studio’s, but the amount of life that pours into the cantina is just amazing.

There is also a ton of options in Disney Springs, but we will swing back around to that later on in the post.

Rides for Adults

Not that all adults enjoy rides, but not every ride/attraction in Disney World is actually Disney related. There are tons of ride options in WDW that don’t require any Disney knowledge beforehand or even have anything to do with Disney at all. Here are a list of some rides I feel like adults would really enjoy listed below organized by park:

Animal Kingdom

  • Expedition Everest
  • Dinosaur
  • Flight of Passage
  • Na’vi River Journey
  • Kali River Rapids
  • Kilimanjaro Safaris

Epcot

  • Test Track
  • Mission: Space
  • Soarin’
  • Living With The Land
  • Spaceship Earth

Magic Kingdom

  • Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
  • Space Mountain
  • Carousel of Progress
  • The People Mover
  • Hall of Presidents
  • Pirates of the Carribean
  • Haunted Mansion

Hollywood Studios:

  • Rock N Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith
  • The Twilight Zone’s Tower of Terror
  • Smugglers Run
  • Rise of the Resistance
  • Indiana Jones

Animal Kingdom

I kind of wanted to single out Animal Kingdom by itself because wow is there just so much opportunity here for you. I feel like Animal Kingdom is the most non-Disney related park and why? Because you’re dealing with real live animals! Yes, you get the Disney gift shops and the occasional Disney shaped treat, but there are so many different experiences and activities you can’t experience any other place in WDW than here at this park. There are tons of opportunities to see animals, whether it be on the 16-ish minute ride on Kilimanjaro safaris, or the few trails you can take to see so many different animals. Each animal is cared for really well by qualified Disney cast members, and you can really see each animal interact with the loads of enrichment they have in their giant living spaces.

Disney Springs

Disney Springs is great for one thing, if you don’t actually have a park ticket and two because there is literally so much to do there! 20+ dining options including The Boathouse, Jock Lindsay’s Hangor Bar, Chicken Guy, D-LUXE Burger, Disney exclusive food trucks, and so much more. There are tons of stores to shop at, and not all of them are Disney related. Places like UGG, Vera Bradley, Alex and Ani, Coach and the list literally goes on… and on… and on. Entertainment is also available in Disney Springs like Splitsville and the new NBA Experience.

WDW Resorts

If you’re looking to stay on Disney property, there are a few hotels that I feel like most adults would really enjoy. My list below:

  • Gran Floridian
  • Polynesian Resort
  • Carribean Beach
  • Disney’s Port Orleans Resort
  • Disney’s French Riviera
  • Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort

WDW Tours

There are a lot of touring options in WDW. You can tour the animal facilities at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, take a tour of history at Magic Kingdom, and even have a whole day where all you do is just jump the lines. Crazy, I know. Some of these tours can get up there in cost, but who knows. It may be totally worth while for your Disney vacation.

Epcot Festivals

There are about 4 festivals each year that Epcot puts on. The Festival of the Arts, Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival, International Food and Wine Festival and the Festival of the Holidays. I’ve been to 2 out of the 4, Food and Wine and Flower and Garden and they are so much fun. If you happen to be in WDW during an Epcot festival, you will have an amazing time. There are lots of different food options at food booths, good entertainment and fun activities anyone can enjoy.

Disney Transportation Rated from Best to Worst

Hello everyone! It’s me here with another Disney related post. I have been loving writing these posts and sharing my love of Disney with all of you, so today I wanted to share some tips I have regarding Disney Transportation. Whether you’re brand new at traveling to Disney, or a every year visitor, I feel like we all have our preferred ways of transportation. Here is how I rank Disney’s transportation.


(1) Rental Car

I believe rental car’s are the BEST way you can get around Disney in my experience. Let’s go through the pro’s and con’s of getting a rental car

PRO:

  • Don’t have to share with others – I love having my own rental car for the simple fact I don’t have to share it with a bunch of other random people. Like a bus.. on a bus obviously you have to share with others. In your own rental car, you don’t have that problem what so ever.
  • More space – Sometimes those monorails and buses can be jam packed and super uncomfortable. In your own rental car, you have enough space for yourself and the rest of your family.

CON:

  • They can be pricey – If you’re staying on Disney Property, a rental car can be a pretty big expense on top of your already pretty pricey vacation stay. If you’re trying to go to Disney on a budget, between paying for the rental car and the parking at each park, you can run up a pretty large bill.

(2) Skyliner

PRO:

  • Very quick – This is not one of those slow ski slope rides. The new Disney Skyliner is pretty quick and definitely great if you’re looking to get somewhere in a hurry seeing as it never stops unless for handicap boarding.
  • Beautiful scenery – There are some pretty great views you can get from these skyliners. Some views you wouldn’t be able to see unless you took the skyliner and the skyliner only.
  • FREE
  • Relaxing – When I went on these I really thought that it would be rocky and a tense ride, but it’s actually really smooth! It definitely relaxed me pretty well.

CON:

  • Doesn’t go to every park – It doesn’t reach Magic Kingdom or Animal Kingdom, and it doesn’t reach all of the hotels. Some hotels like the Contemporary, the Grand Floridian and the Polynesian, have better ways of transportation anyways.
  • Is it totally trustworthy? – I think so, but a lot of people don’t trust it yet since it’s so new.
  • Fear of heights – If you have a fear of heights this is definitely not for you.

(3) Uber/Lyft

Also known as ‘Minnie Vans’.

PRO:

  • Cheaper alternative to rental car
  • Drops you off right at the front entrance to the parks

CON:

  • You may have to wait about 5-10 mins for these.
  • You may get a horrible driver

(4) Monorail

PRO:

  • Not many forms of transportation like it
  • FREE
  • Nice if you’re staying at: Polynesian, Grand Floridian and Contemporary resorts

Con:

  • Doesn’t reach all 4 parks
  • Smelly
  • Getting to be too old
  • Can take a long time to arrive
  • Very jam packed

(5) Disney Buses

PRO:

  • FREE
  • Available at every resort/park

CON:

  • Long wait times
  • Doesn’t fit too many people
  • Can be a rough ride
  • May take several stops until your destination is reached
