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

Ears the News: September 27, 2019 Edition

Welcome to the latest edition of Ears the News Brought to you by our friends at WDWMagic.com 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.

Lumiere's on the Disney Magic

Lumiere's on the Disney Magic is the upscale and elegant of the bunch when it comes to Main Dining Rooms.  As you'd expect being themed off a movie based in France, the menu is French inspired and this is where you will find some of the "fancier" food to give a try!  Lumiere's is located midship on Deck Three off the main atrium.  There are two entrances, the main entrance is off the atrium and the one from the hallway around the side is accessible and often used when there is an event or activity in the atrium.  Lumiere's is often also open for other meals throughout the day, and has a more standard menu when this is the case.
