30 Day Disney World Challenge!
DAY 30! Favorite statue, fountain, or anything that grabs your eye in the park
The partners statue is just perfect. It shows how Walt wouldn’t have been anything without the assistance of Mickey, and vice versa. Makes me emotional just thinking about it.
As Walt said, “It all started with a mouse.”

Day 23: Scariest Ride
I wouldn’t say it’s the scariest, but i conquered Mission Space the most recently! I was always too scared that I’d get super nauseous, but I rode the green side and was fine.
Next step, ride Orange!

Day 22: Favorite Parade
Spectromagic!
It really is just magical to see all the classic characters ride by in their illuminated costumes. Main Street Electrical Parade was okay, but Spectro is the one that makes me tear up!

Day 20: Favorite WDW Dessert
Tie-Dye Cheesecake is definitely up there, but as I mentioned on a previous day my family is all about food variety when we go to WDW!
Some of our other favorites include any pastry from the Main Street Bakery, anything from Karamelle Kuche the new caramel shop in the Germany pavillion of the World Showcase, Mickey head ice cream bars, and of course Dole Whips!

Day 17: Favorite Restaurant
I honestly can’t choose just one, for my family the variety of restaurants is one of the things that makes WDW so wonderful!
Some of our top picks include: Cinderella’s Royal Table, California Grill, Kona Cafe, Akershus, Hollywood Brown Derby, Wolfgang Puck’s, Chef Mickey’s, Crystal Palace and MUCH more!

Day 16: Favorite snack to grab in the parks
Sweet cream cheese pretzels! We discovered these little babies 3 years ago. They can only found in Magic Kingdom, in what used to be 2 locations, but now only one. (Scuttle’s Landing closed, so now you can only get them at the Lunching Pad in Tomorrowland!)
If you’ve never had one you have to try one the next time you’re at Magic Kingdom. You don’t know what you’re missing!
Honorable mentions go to: Mickey Ice Cream Bars and anything from around the World Showcase!

Day 15: Favorite WDW Resort
Contemporary Resort!
I was lucky enough to be able to stay here for the first time a year ago, February 2010. I LOVED the proximity to everything, and the sleek polished feel!
We had to visit it on our December 2010 trip, and my sister snapped that great picture of the giant Mickey shaped wreath on the side of the main tower!
