Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party 2010

Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party

This year we got the opportunity to visit Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party annual event again. It takes place inside Magic Kingdom, where the entire Main Street U.S.A. has been redecorated to light up and sparkle in a dazzling display of lights and ribbons. It was great this year because we were able to get Disney World Tickets at a discounted price online! In the center of Main Street where you normally (and still can) visit the Disney Characters is a massive Christmas tree that lights up when the entertainment starts. The first thing you will notice as the seasonal fun begins is that Main Street clears quickly to make way for the parade. With some of your favorite characters dressed up as holiday characters their duel roles will make you laugh and strain to see every angle of these floats. When the parade is over be sure to check out “Mickey’s T’was the Night Before Christmas” show. The seats fill up fast to push your way through the crowd till you get a seat.
Finally with complimentary hot chocolate and cookies to ward away the chilly whether crowd around Cinderella’s Castle for this years biggest event. As the sun goes down the fireworks go up in a dazzling display of pyrotechnics. With theatrical music and some of your favorite characters making appearances this show will have you coming back year after year.

Mickey's Golf Cart at Oak Trail

Mickey parked his golf cart out near the practice putting area today. Since he was off getting ready to tee I jumped in this cart while Norwood snapped a photo.

Pirates of the Caribbean Battle for Buccaneer Gold – Disney Quest

Pirates of the Caribbean

Well 4 out of 5 kids will tell you that I have saved the best game at Disney Quest for last… Pirates of the Caribbean Battle for Buccaneer Gold. Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for Buccaneer Gold is located on the first floor of Disney Quest. It is a virtual reality ride where you board a boat and you have to move around your ship to fire cannons at pirate ships so they will sink and you can take their gold. At the end in order to keep your gold you need to defeat the Captain.

Norwood and I played along with a father and daughter. Norwood was our Captain and as such he was in charge of driving the boat close enough to the other pirate ships so the rest of us the gunners, could shoot our cannons at the other pirate ships in hopes that they would sink and we would be able to take their gold. Norwood was a great driver we were able to take so much gold from pirates and only once were we attacked by a sea monster. But then just as we were all about to sail into the sunset with our gold the Pirate Captain came over with his ghost ship and tried to steal our gold! With our expert gunners we were able to defeat the Pirate Captain and keep our gold.

Disney Quest is a cool place if you like video games. What we noticed is that it is a favorite place of teenagers and kids who do not want to walk around the rest of Downtown Disney with their parents. We had fun but man can those kids play!
