Let me preface this by saying that FOLK (as it’s known to the cool kids) is my favorite show in Walt Disney World. I never get disappointed when I see it, and I still get chills as the music dims and the first chimes of “Circle of Life” start playing. It used to be one of my favorite pastimes during my time working at DAK, and I often went with friends if I happened to end my shift early.
I got engaged to my now-husband on the original Soarin’. Yes, during the ride. Up in the air. Hang-gliding over the CA seaside. Therefore, Soarin’ Around the World will never quite measure up.
First things first, I love that they added a third queue. This drastically reduces the wait times, so that you can spend your FastPass on Frozen instead, and just wait on the stand-by at Soarin’. When my husband and I rode, we waited 45 minutes in the stand-by line- which is almost unheard of on a busy day at Epcot.
Two of the most anticipated rides of 2016 for me opened at Epcot in the summer: Frozen Ever After and Soarin’ Around the World. Both rides replaced or refurbished attractions that held a lot of nostalgia for me, but I was excited to ride both of them when they finally opened, regardless of my fondness for their predecessors. Let’s start with Frozen:
A little intro…
I’m a past Disney cast member, and I love visiting Disney, taking photos, and sharing news/ride reviews, etc. I used to work as a “Conservation Education Presenter” (now “Wilderness Explorer”) at Animal Kingdom in the spring of 2012, and I miss it every day. In the meantime, my husband and I hold annual passes and live in South Florida- we try to visit the world as much as we can!
This is my little corner of the universe where I’ll discuss any Dis-related (and sometimes personal) topics that come to mind. I welcome any advice and opinions, and I encourage everyone to stick along while I figure this blogging thing out! I’m also just getting into makeup and hair at the ripe old age of late 20-something, so I might as well share those tips as well.
Below you’ll find a link of a book I wrote detailing my experiences as a Disney cast member at DAK (Disney’s Animal Kingdom):
Thanks everyone, and I hope you enjoy the ride!
Hugs and fishes,
