Welcome to those of you joining me from The Many Adventures of a Disney Lovin’ Spectrum Mom and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 4th stop on our Magical Blogorail. My friends on the teal loop have invited me to join them this month as we talk about our favorite sit-down-and-take-a-break attractions at Walt Disney World . . .
Sometimes, when vacationing at Walt Disney World, we get tired. And, when we get tired, some of us (I won’t mention any names) tend to get a little cranky. These times don’t always constitute a trip back to the resort for a rest or a nap; often all they require is a bit of a power boost – you know what I mean – simply sitting down for a little while in a dark attraction will often help.
So, today I’m going to share two of my favorite attractions – and they’re my favorites for two reasons:
#1 – They are rich in American history, which is something that I’ve always been quite interested in. So, they are great, educational attractions that I want my kids to experience – over and over again – and that I, myself, never tire of.
#2 – When you’re really tired, they are a great place to sneak a little nap!
One is found at the Magic Kingdom, the other at Epcot . . .
While I have definitely been known to doze off during this show, The Hall of Presidents is a long-standing favorite with me. I remember visiting it on our first trip in 1988, and I’ve tried to convince my family to visit it every trip since. I’ve received the occasional eye-roll; but I can still usually talk them into it!
I love the addition of each new president, but I think Abraham Lincoln is still my favorite.
Yes, I’ve also slept in The American Adventure! There’s just something about hours in the hot Florida sun that makes it so easy to fall asleep in this show. Comfy chairs, air conditioning, and a dark theater all add to the sleepy-time ambiance. But, it’s also a really good show! I enjoy Mark Twain and Ben Franklin as the narrators, and the walk through American history is really interesting (when you can stay awake!)
Even if you don’t want to take time to see the show, I’d highly recommend heading inside. There are some fabulous quotes on the walls surrounding the atrium, and the Voices of Liberty are definitely worth listening to.
So what about you? What are your favorite places to sneak in out of the sun and take a load off?
