My 5 Disney Senses

When you retell the experiences on a Disney vacation to someone you know, it’s full of words like “I saw”, “I ate”, “I heard”.....which got me to thinking about how Disney is really experienced with all 5 senses.  So I thought I would put together a little list of some of my most memorable “5 Disney Senses”.  Close your eyes (after you are done reading, of course), and imagine along!


Touch
Mickey’s glove in my own hand
The lazy river at Typhoon Lagoon
The blast of “champagne popping” in Mickey’s Philharmagic
The heat from the Inferno during Illuminations
The bed in my resort room after the end of a long day!



Smell
The Polynesian lobby 
The cookies from the Main Street bakery
The water in Pirates of the Caribbean
The skunk in Imagination (I might not love it, but you can’t deny that it’s memorable!)
The orange grove in Soarin’


Sight
A Mickey balloon
Cinderella Castle at the end of Main Street
Tinker Bell’s nighttime flight during Wishes
Hidden Mickeys
Twinkling trees







Sound
The Magic Kingdom train whistle
Screams coming down Splash Mountain and Tower of Terror
“Have a Magical Day!”
The Harambe radio station on the jeep during Kilimanjaro Safari
“Please stand clear of the doors.  Por favor, mantenganse alejado de las puertas.”


Taste
A freshly baked Mickey waffle at Chef Mickey’s
Tonga Toast at Kona Cafe
A cucumber margarita at La Cava del Tequila
Meats on sticks at ‘Ohana
DOLE WHIP

The 6 mile long Disney Skyliner opens at the end of the month in Walt Disney World, and we are now starting to hear confirmation of some of the operational details.

As expected, lightning will be addressed by the Skyliner system closing when lightning is forecast. The system does feature lightning protection, but Disney will obviously be keeping guests out of the sky during bad weather. Bus service will be available during weather closure of the Skyliner.


Disney Skyliner is able to carry 10 guests per cabin, and guests may also travel with strollers, wheelchairs and service animals.

There are five stations in total covering the 3 lines - at Caribbean Beach, Pop Century/Art of Animation, Disney Riviera Resort, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot International Gateway. Caribbean Beach is the main gateway and you will transfer there to each destination.

Disney Villains After Hours Event

This summer, the Kingdom Konsultant Agents took on a full day of training followed by a late night Magic Kingdom adventure at the Disney Villains After Hours Event.  The night promised low crowds, special effects on attractions, specialty food items available for purchase, a unique stage show and PhotoPass opportunities, and Maleficent at night. In addition, there were complimentary soda, bottled water, popcorn and ice cream novelties with our event admission! We couldn't wait to see what we could accomplish! Pro tip: you won't be able to accomplish it all in one night, there is just too much to see and do!

Walking in to Main Street was a little hectic with the day guests leaving and the party guests arriving.  We almost missed the guide map but managed to double back to grab some so that we could all make a plan! You notice right away a different feel to the park with little hints of the villains all around.



The two main attractions with overlays were Pirates of the Caribbean…
