It's All in the Disney Details - Towel Animals


We’ve previously taken a look at seemingly ordinary objects such as trash cans and carpets, and today we continue that journey into the ordinary by taking a look at towels: the animal variety, that is.  Towel animals are another example of how Disney takes something simple like a towel and gives it that extra Disney touch to make them something magical.

Classic Mickey silhouette
Upon arrival to your room at a Walt Disney World resort, you can expect to see the classic Mickey silhouette in towels on the bed.  It’s such a simple shape and yet it brings so much joy.  I love seeing that silhouette because it means that my Disney vacation has really begun!  I often leave the towels on the bed as long as possible because it just feels wrong to destroy Mickey, even if it is only made of towels!

Creative towel animals can also be functional!
Disney housekeeping - better known as Mousekeeping - keep the creations coming throughout your stay.  After a long day in the parks, it’s an exciting surprise to find the little towel animals in various places around your room.  There are some very creative Mousekeepers who go that extra mile to add a little more magic to your vacation.

If you enjoy the towel animals at the Walt Disney World resorts, you should see the towel animals onboard a Disney Cruise Line ship!  The DCL staff take towel animals to a whole new level.  They are truly spectacular!  From turtles, to elephants and monkeys, the DCL staff make some pretty intricate creatures!  Just see for yourself:
Towel animal class on the Disney Fantasy
On a recent cruise on the Disney Fantasy, my husband and I took an “Art of Towel Making” course.  We were given a few towels of varying sizes and a step-by-step paper on towel folding to accompany our lesson, led by a stateroom Host.  I gotta tell you, making those towel animals is not an easy task!  Even with detailed instructions and following step-by-step instructions, it takes a lot of practice to perfect those cute little towel animals.

The Disney cast members take something as simple as a towel and turn it into something magical.  I know that those towel animals bring a smile to my face and each day I look forward to seeing what new creation is waiting for me.  It’s that extra Disney difference that makes every Disney vacation so special.

Remember, it’s all in the Disney details!

Paddlefish Restaurant at Disney Springs

After arriving in Walt Disney World around dinnertime with no reservations on our latest trip, we headed over to Disney Springs to see what was available and Paddlefish caught our eye with the beautiful boat shining on the water.  There was space for us at the bar where they serve the full menu, so we settled right in for what was about to be a delicious dinner. We started with cocktails and were very impressed by not only the cocktail selection, but also the bartender's knowledge and expertise on the menu to guide us through our selections tonight.  At the recommendation of the staff, we had to give the Lobster Corn Dogs a try for our appetizer.  These were so fun and very delicious (and I don't normally like lobster!) They are most like a corn dog in that they are on a stick, but don't let that stop you from giving these a try.  Next up it was time for our entrees, we both opted for options "from the port" since we were in a seafood inspired restaurant, we could

Tips for Scoring a Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Boarding Group

Star Wars : Rise of the Resistance is an attraction like we've never seen before with multiple ride systems and is a truly thrilling, one of a kind experience.

We at Kingdom Konsultant Travel have compiled some of the best tips and tricks to improve your chances of joining the virtual queue.  It's important to know that for this post we're focusing on Walt Disney World's version of the attraction, but many of these tips can be used for the Disneyland version of the attraction as well.  TIP #1: Check y
