A trip isn't Complete Without...

Welcome to the first stop aboard Magical Blogorail Blue. Enjoy the ride as we share what we can't miss to complete our trip!

I've done so many different types of trips - Solo trips, day trips, solo half day trips, pregnant trips, trips with newborns, etc...  Really, no two trips have been the same (okay, those day trips had a pretty clear routine - get there before lunch, run, do everything, go).

But, trips such as my 2 pregnant trips, have been trips where a few things weren't possible - my favorite mountain (space) wasn't safe.  Luckily, my first pregnant trip, Space Mountain was under a lengthy refurb, so my husband couldn't ride either!
My favorite Mountain!
Then I thought about my favorite show/parade thing - the Move it, Shake it, Celebrate it Street Party.  Yes, I'm the one.  But that song pumps me up!  I heard it on Reedy Creek Radio the other day and stood up and started dancing.  Luckily, I was at home with my boys and not at work when the urge to get up and get loud hit!

Mickey's got to shake his groove thing!
In all reality, there is one thing that makes my trip feel complete - or feel truly started, if it's where we go first:

The monorail!!

Sorry to my favorite Wedway Radio brothers who insist it's always better on a boat, but even as an adult, I prefer the monorail!

What completes your Disney vacation?

  1. I love that parade too. It seems on every trip my son would sleep in stroller while I watched and sung along. On our last trip my husband was appalled to see me actually dance along with the cast. I think I have seen it one to many times!

  2. Adam just shakes his head. He knows I have to run and watch it 😊

  3. I love the ferry too - but the monorail is an absolute must-do for our family. If it were the only thing at WDW, Ian would still want to go!

  4. I love getting on the tram/monorail thing at the airport and thinking, woohoo, first 'ride'. Then the Magic Express - second 'ride'. Once I have dumped my stuff in the resort room there is the sense of Finally I am Here. And no one can send me home, until it is time to go.

    Various things make my WDW vacation complete, the smell of the water at Pirates, taking a photo of me eating a Mickey Premium bar, finding just the right piece of curb to wait for the parade. Hearing all that lovely area music. And seeing small princesses and pirates either with huge smiles on their faces or fast asleep in strollers.

  5. Those are great things!! I've only

  6. Those are great! I've only done Magical Express twice - LOVE it, but since I frequently am visiting family a few hours away and have a car, but MCO is fun with the extra ride for sure!

    And oh yes, I DO love that area music. Thank goodness for streaming it at home - I love keeping the magic going!

  7. I am lucky, I can listen to area music at work as well . . . If no one else is in the often, sometimes I listen to it loud!

  8. I am so glad I got to ride in the front and thankful I remembered to take photos!
