Our favorite “Kiddie Rides”

Hey everyone, I’m Mike, she’s Sophie, and that’s Brenda, and we’re On the Road with Mickey! This is Season 2, Episode 33 for August 16, 2021, and our feature topic today is our Our favorite “Kiddie Rides”. For today’s podcast, we’re taking a look at our five favorite “Kiddie Rides” that we just can’t get enough of! You know, the rides that our kids are supposed to like that we love also! Here’s the rundown of what we talked about:

  • Cheddar from the Big Cheese
    • Mike: Coming to the Fab 50 Statue collection on October 1st: The Orange Bird!
    • Sophie: Coming to Disney+ this fall, a new #MuppetsHauntedMansion show! You can watch the YouTube announcement here: Announcement | Muppets Haunted Mansion | Disney+
    • Brenda: Although Character experiences are modified, they can still be a lot of fun despite being socially distanced. Over at Epcot in the Germany Pavilion, the original Disney Princess, Snow White, is back! In addition to her, you can also find Anna and Elsa in Norway, Mulan in China, Jasmine in Morocco, and Aurora in France. Lastly, you can see Winnie the Pooh, Joy from Inside Out, Mickey Mouse, and Minnie Mouse in various locations in Epcot.

  • Feedback from the Parks:
    • One of my clients is visiting Walt Disney World right now, and she gave me some photos to share as well as some great feedback on the parks. Here’s what she said: “Just a few highlights. I saw the new lion king show yesterday. It’s still great even with things left out. I managed to shut down the Toy Story Mania ride when our fan fell out of the backpack and rolled under the tracks. Lol. Lots of people here but it’s not bad at all. Last night’s fireworks were beautiful but people were packed in like sardines. The new fireworks show at Epcot is beautiful. Can’t imagine how great Harmonious will be.”
