Bliss and Miss at the Magic Kingdom

Bliss and Miss at the Magic Kingdom

Just one evening at the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World can be full of so many amazing things to see and do. And yet, there are also these moments when one wonders what is happening and why? We go through such an evening as this, and cherish amazing moments like holiday lights on Main Street, U.S.A., the newly revised and gorgeous Mickey’s PhilarMagic, and Disney’s Enchanted Fireworks. And with all of this, it is off set by some comments made about reducing food portions, unbelievable price hikes on the Christmas party, and a tram system that is still not operational. And then we have what seems to be a very misleading–perhaps deceitful occurrence on Seven Dwarf’s Mine Ride as it relates to Genie+ Lightning Lanes. Join us as we share the magic and realities, the bliss and the miss of an evening at Walt Disney World.

An outline plus photos and video are shown below but our podcast carries narrative of the entire experience. You can find the podcast here on PodbeaniTunesSpotify,  and ListenNotes
