Top 5 Dark Rides at Disney World

Sometimes we all need a break. For kids – and adults! – with sensory integration disorder, theme parks can be overwhelming. On Monday, I discussed my top 5 spinning rides for sensory seekers. Today I’m going in the other direction and giving you my top 5 dark rides for sensory breaks at Disney World. These are perfect when your child is overwhelmed and needs a sensory break from all the colors, movement, and visual stimulus of the parks. Pirates of the Caribbean: Guests float slowly through several scenes of pirate life. This is the attraction that inspired the Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise, which in turn has influenced the ride. Look carefully and you’ll find Captain Jack Sparrow! There are a few small drops, but overall this is a tame ride. The gentle swaying of the boats on the water is soothing for the child in sensory overload....

Epcot at Night on Wordless Wednesday

Ignoring protestations that he’s “not a blogger” I convinced our family photographer to contribute a guest post – but only by assuring him that it is WORDLESS Wednesday! Photographer’s Notes: I took this photo with the low-end Canon DLSR, stock lens, and no tripod. Despite very basic equipment the photo came out pretty well. This could be a Disney postcard. — Bill Pin It

Disney and Autism – Guest Appearance on The Best Magic

I recently spoke with Sal Tracanna from The Best Magic as part of his Disney and Autism – A Match Made in Heaven series. Come join us as we discuss the challenges and the magic of bringing kids with autism to Disney World. We talked about everything from the rides to the food and how your resort choice can make a huge difference in the success of your vacation. This interview is part 2 in the series. In Part 1, Sal sat down with one of my favorite Disney bloggers, Kathy Kelly from The Many Adventures of a Disney Lovin’ Spectrum Mom. In Part 3, Kathy and I will both participate in a round table discussion. What would you like to know about visiting Disney parks with children affected by autism spectrum disorders?

Moments With the Cast

Welcome to the first stop aboard Magical Blogorail Yellow.  Enjoy the ride as we share a moment with a Cast Member who went out of their way to create Disney Magic. This subject is very close to my heart. Maybe because as a Mom I know how much work goes into making mundane things run smoothly! Normally, I try to include a photo with every blog post, but I won’t be doing that today. I don’t have photos of the person I want to share with you today. At the time, we were simply tourists, not Disney bloggers. We took pictures of Spaceship Earth, Cinderella’s Castle, and the Tree of Life at Animal Kingdom. It didn’t occur to me to take pictures of the housekeeping or restaurant staff. My bad. I won’t make that mistake again next time, because those people – not some giant golf ball – made...
