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.
On the Thursday 2/22/18 episode of The Improviser’s Guide Podcast, we compared the Happily Ever After dessert party at WDW’s Magic Kingdom with the Hollywood (#AlwaysMGM) Studios’ Star Wars Galactic Spectacular Dessert Party. This blog covers the Happily Ever After party. Click here to read Brother Dillo’s recap of the Star Wars Galactic Spectacular.
The Happily Ever After dessert party is held in the Tomorrowland Terrace at the Magic Kingdom. There are two areas to enjoy the desserts. In the lower area of the terrace, you’re able to sit at a table and remain there during the fireworks. Instead of standing like most of the crowd, you can sit back, drink your sparkling cider and not worrying about anyone possibly pushing you out of the way. If you sit in the upper area of the Tomorrowland Terrace (which is a lower ticket price), you get to enjoy the same desserts but you are escorted to the Plaza Garden Viewing area. We chose the Plaza Garden Viewing area and it was an amazing view.
Let’s talk desserts, because they were delish. I mentioned on the podcast that there was an amazing ice cream creation that my hubby took advantage of. Unfortunately with the time that has passed, we can’t remember the exact name of this sundae (which included the Cast Member’s name) but it was the ultimate sundae! There was a cookie, ice cream, a brownie, more ice cream, whipped cream and every topping. Take a moment and try to overcome the jealousy.
Other desserts included chocolate covered strawberries, cookies, brownies, along with sparking cider, coffee, tea and hot chocolate. It’s dessert heaven!
I definitely feel that Magic Kingdom can step up the experience a bit, but it’s still a great time and I would highly recommend it! It was the perfect way to end our week-long Disney Extravaganza.

During our sneak preview we discussed the rumors regarding discontinuing Monorail Service. If you listened, you would know that I am adamantly against this idea. Hopefully it is in fact, just a rumor!
Since this podcast is literally just the Dillos having a conversation, I tend not to do too much research beforehand. We like to stay true to the name of the podcast and….IMPROVISE!
I questioned that if they discontinued the monorail, what would that mean for security? Disney recently set up security checkpoints at the Transportation and Ticket Center and Monorail Resorts for those guests traveling via Boat or Monorail. While thinking things through out loud, I asked how it was set up for buses, since I had not taken a Disney bus in a few years. Thanks to some recent googling, I see that those traveling by bus still go through security upon arrival at the Magic Kingdom.
All that to say, IF they did discontinue the monorail, they would probably need to put security back at the entrance of Magic Kingdom and go back to the same congestion issues they were moving away from.
I just wanted to answer any questions I ask out loud on the podcast for myself and anyone else wondering the same things. And to once again say: Do Not Get Rid of the Monorail DISNEY!
Thank you for your time regarding this very important matter.
We are diving into the world of podcasting! After a tribute episode to The Great Movie Ride last August, we’ve decided to add a weekly chat to Brother Dillo’s podcast The Improviser’s Guide. We’ll center on a topic/subject each week on ‘Theme Park Thursday’ – A Salute to All Theme Parks but mostly Walt Disney World.
