10 Magical Moments You Can Experience At Walt Disney World

Happily Ever After
Happily Ever After

Walt Disney World is known for being “The Most Magical Place on Earth,” – just as Walt Disney aspired for it to be. Without a doubt, you WILL experience the magic Walt Disney World has to offer. The magic is what makes Disney World a leading theme park that keeps people coming back to make more memories each day.

1) Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique makeover

Have you ever wished to be princess for a day? What about a Disney diva or knight in shining armor? I know I have! At Magic Kingdom, Disney Springs, and Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Space, your son or daughter (between the ages of three and twelve) can experience this magical makeover. So, head over to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique to get your nails, hair, and makeup done with treatment fit for a princess!

2) Meeting and greeting with characters

Ariel, Elsa, Belle – OH MY! There are just so many characters to meet! I remember how magical it all was my first time meeting a Disney princess at Walt Disney World. It was unreal to stand in the presence of my favorite character, (Cinderella of course), and even cooler to get to talk to her! I still have my autography book stuffed full of autographs from my favorite characters. Meeting and greeting with characters makes for truly magical moments at Walt Disney World!

3) Staying in the Cinderella Castle Suite

This is the ultimate in magical Disney moments: getting the chance to stay in the Cinderella Castle Suite. This is something that money cannot buy, but only sheer luck can win you. In 2007, as part of the Year of A Million Dreams, the Walt Disney Company built an extravagantly decorated suite for up to five guests to stay in at one time. Because this chance of a lifetime cannot be bought and only won, it’s one that you’ll surely want to wish upon a star for. As Cinderella said, “If you keep on believing, the dreams that you wish will come true.”

4) Grand Marshall of a parade

This is another magical Disney park moment that cannot be bought. But, just by chance, you can be granted the experience that will make your vacation one you’ll absolutely remember! Each day in the Magic Kingdom Park, one family/couple is chosen by Cast Members to be the Grand Marshalls of the afternoon parade. The Grand Marshalls get to ride in a stage coach/antique car and wave to guests as they pass by. It truly is an honor to be chosen, so make sure to be friendly to Cast Members; you never know who they’re looking for!

5) First haircut

A child’s first haircut is a memorable experience on its own, but why not make it extra magical? At Disney’s Magic Kingdom Park you can do just that. For $19 your child can get their hair cut and take home a certificate to remember the whole event. It’s just one more magical moment to experience at Walt Disney World!

6) Driving into Disney territory

There’s something about driving under that “Disney sign” we love. I’m not sure if it’s the instant feeling of stress relief, the chill bumps I get, or just knowing that I have truly begun my vacation, but driving under that purple sign that welcomes each guest to Walt Disney World is one of those wonderfully magical moments.

7) Wedding proposal

Girls, imagine getting proposed to in front of Cinderella Castle for a second. Talk about the ultimate fairytale moment. I’m that girl who will see this happen every once in a while in the Magic Kingdom and I just stand there with a smile on my face and my heart melting with joy. I’m a hopeless romantic that just cannot be helped in that situation. Now it’s time for me to give some advice to the boys reading this; if you want to make your proposal something extra special your future wife will be talking about for all the years to come, I say go for it. Something tells me you won’t be disappointed.

8) Disney wedding

This magical moment is every woman’s dream come true. Take notes, boys. Held at either the Grand Floridian’s Wedding Pavilion, other outdoor locations on property, or even at one of the theme parks, Disney weddings are sure to be memorable ways to say “I do.” The simplest wedding packages start at $2,500 for the bride, groom, and four additional guests, ranging all the way up to $18,000+ for the bride, groom, and a minimum of eighteen guests. Personalization of your special day through Disney includes everything from your cake flavor to what characters you want to make an appearance at your reception. I can’t think of a better start off the rest of your life with someone than making memories that will last a lifetime.

9) Watching your first fireworks show

For those of you who have seen either Happily Ever After in Magic Kingdom, Epcot Forever in Epcot, or Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular in Hollywood Studios, you will agree that they are spectacular shows that bring Disney magic to the next level. These eye-popping, jaw-dropping shows blow other fireworks shows out of the water. These firework spectaculars are perfectly magical ways to end your Disney days.

10) Going on your first upside-down roller coaster

I don’t know about you, but this was certainly an exciting day in my life. While my first roller coaster loop was not at Walt Disney World, I did get to witness my little sister’s “big day” in a Disney park. She was nine years old and eager to complete her first upside down roller coaster ride on California Screamin’ at Disney’s California Adventure. I am so happy I could be there with her and see her face light up after she had done it! I know I’ll never forget. You can experience the same magical feeling on Hollywood Studios’ Rockin’ Roller Coaster: the thrilling, upside down roller coaster at Walt Disney World!
