On yesterday’s Theme Park Thursday episode on the Improviser’s Guide Podcast, we played a little game: AM vs PM.
Wait, what’s that? You didn’t listen. Oh, here’s the link. Go ahead, we’ll wait.
Ok, great! Now that you’re up to speed, we can continue…
As I was playing, it was hard not to come up with resort experiences. This probably sounds weird to non-Disney lovers. Then again, non-Disney lovers don’t understand a lot about a Disney addict. They often ask:
Do you go on rides? Yes, and they’re awesome.
Isn’t it just for kids? No, it’s also for the kid at heart.
Is there anything to do at the hotels? Plenty and that is why it was so hard to come up with park experiences during our AM vs PM game!
It was also hard for me to answer AM. Why is that?
Disney mornings are great. The ground is wet, the sun is shining and you know how hot it’ll be for the rest of the day, as soon as you leave your hotel. That’s a great start to your day! But overall Theme Parks at night give that unexplainable feeling and vibe. The nostalgia becomes more prominent. You feel that magic in the air. When you stay up to go on rides, watch fireworks and pass out in a Disney bed while being an acceptable level of exhausted – nothing can beat that.
Meant to post this in October….but here we are….
Fun Fact: Me and Epcot have the same birth year. Buuuuut I’m much more excited for Epcot’s 35th than I was for mine.
For two years I worked with a Disney Business Partner. While in this position, I helped in the planning and execution of events and the majority of them took place in Epcot. Like most guests, event spaces in the theme parks were never something I thought about while visiting. However, there are very cool spots to host events tucked away in the theme parks. So if you have a company and you’re looking for a unique location-be sure to check it out!
The Dillos love many things about Disney and of course have often talked about Disney nights, a deluxe resort bed and the almighty Disney breeze. But Disney mornings, before the crowds build up, with the morning dew and watered down pavement….there’s something just as magical about that.
I loved getting to walk around the countries or Future World before the park even opened. Leading Business Guests into these tucked away locations was probably way cooler for me than them, since I was internally geeking out. Although those were long days on my feet, it was definitely worth the unique experience.
