I Went to Disneyworld (part 5) and Watched the Electrical Parade

No one goes to Disney World and not carve out a time to watch the Electrical Parade. It is after all one of the most anticipated attraction of the theme park. Despite the almost 2 hours of heavy downpour before the the parade, by parade time there was only drizzle, which made for a more magical experience.

After the parade was over, our husbands hightailed it to queue for a turkey leg. The turkey leg kiosk was closed due to rain and thunderstorm earlier, but had reopened soon as the rain stopped. While they went to get turkey leg, we went to try the It's A Small World ride, since the 8 year old in our company had not tried it yet.

I didn't get the typical photo production that I normally get when I go to a particular place. I suppose being in the moment got to me more than capturing the moment.

OUR WORLD TUESDAY

  2. Thanks for the trip down Memory Lane. Was at Walt Disney World more than 10 years ago -- and yes, I did enjoy both the after dark and daytime parades there. :)

  3. Good time had by all! Your mention of Small World gave me an earworm though ;>) (and it has been years since the last time we went. (to Disneyland in CA -- have never been to Orlando one.) I was actually glad to know that some things have stayed the same and the parade looks great, even better than ever.

  4. You did a fantastic job of taking pictures of the lights! The parade looks wonderful and how nice that the weather cooperated. A visit to Disneyworld can be a one-time experience for some so it’s always great when everything works out!
