About DisneyDad

Two things I love are travel and writing. It only makes sense that the two should come together in the form of a Disney website, Blog, and eBook travel guides. My first book, "Discover the Magic: The Ultimate Insider's Guide to Walt Disney World" captures the essence of the happiest place on Earth- Walt Disney World! There is no place like Disney for a magical, mystical vacation. Though I was never able to visit as a child (we didn't take 'big' vacations like that) I fell in love with the place the first time my family and I walked through the gates of Magic Kingdom several years ago. Now, I just can't get enough of it! I published my book because I wanted to share my knowledge and experiences with others in hopes that they too would enjoy the Magic of Walt Disney World as much as I do. Hopefully the tips, park guides, and other details in the book will help make your vacation to Disney even better!

Blizzard Beach Summit Plummet

Summit Plummet water slide at Blizzard Beach

Prepare for a major plunge on Summit Plummet!

Summit Plummet at Disney’s Blizzard Beach water park has to be about the coolest water slide EVER! The slide towers way above the rest of the park yielding great views of the entire park from the platform at the top. When you sit down on the slide, the scariest thing is that you cannot even SEE the slide you are about to go down! The slope of the slide (about 60 degrees) is so steep that all you see is the sky in the distance!

You’ll plunge down the slide at nearly 60 mph and be at the bottom before you know it. Keep your legs crossed tight or you’ll be left with the worst ‘atomic wedgie’ you’ve ever seen! Ladies- I wouldn’t go down this one in a bikini if I were you. If you want to find out why….try it and see. 😉

Looking forward to Expedition Everest the most! Can’t wait for Kali River Rapids (which we didn’t ride at Christmas because it was too cold) and Kilimanjaro Safaris too!

Can’t wait to get to Magic Kingdom!

Just a few short days and we’ll be wandering around Magic Kingdom! Can’t wait! There’s nothing like that first time you walk through the gates and can immediately feel all your troubles melt away. You leave the ‘real world’ behind and enter the the magical world that is Walt Disney World.

Cinderella Castle, Magic Kingdom

Cinderella Castle at Walt Disney World

The weather’s sure to be a lot hotter than the last time we went, back in January. We’ll certainly miss the Poinsettias and all the beautiful Christmas decorations that Disney rolls out, but it will be nice to not have to worry about the long pants, sweatshirts, and even GLOVES that we had to bring the last time!
