Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom will be celebrating its 45th anniversary soon.  Disney Parks Blog is featuring an original attraction each week to commemorate the event.

I thought it would be fun to follow suit.  Their posts have been interesting to read, but they’re short on photos, so I thought I would post some of my pictures from these original attractions.

First up:  The Walt Disney World Railroad!  Railroad name

If you take the full trip around Magic Kingdom theme park, you will enjoy a 20-minute, 1.5-mile, breezy journey around the perimeter. Continue Reading…

  • Like “it’s a small world,” this attraction was made by Walt Disney himself, for the 1964-1965 World’s Fair.

World Showcase for kids

World Showcase at Epcot is one of my favorite things in all of Walt Disney World.  It features 11 counties, all along the World Showcase Lagoon.  These countries are:  Canada, United Kingdom, France, Morocco, Japan, United States, Italy, Germany, China, Norway, and Mexico (plus an African Outpost).

I love walking through World Showcase and really feeling as if I’m in those countries.  The architecture, music, food, and shopping are based on the countries that they represent.  Many of the cast members are from the country in which they work, so they speak the language and know the culture.  

It is beautiful.  It is fun.  It is educational.  It is delicious.  

But, is it something I can do with my young kids?  Won’t they be bored?

YES, you can experience World Showcase and enjoy it with your kids!  
NO, they won’t be bored!

Here’s how:

Circle with Disney

Circle

Disney Momma is my blogger name because I love Disney and I also care about families, family time, and family values.  That is why I am really excited to share about this new product, Circle.  

Circle is not made by Disney, but Disney has partnered with the Circle team to present an affordable, practical internet security device.  Circle allows parents to filter internet content in their home, set time limits or a bedtime, and even pause the internet access.  It’ can be personalized for multiple people, so one child can have different filters or time limits than another.  Plus, it doesn’t have monthly fees, like a lot of the other options in internet security.

Read more about it here, on my husband’s blog.  As both a father and a children’s and youth pastor, he cares deeply about internet safety for today’s youth and families.  We’re really excited about this new technology.  

Is Circle something you would use in your home?  Talk about it in the comments.
