Near Empty Park Views
Walt Disney World Parks are usually chock full of guests, so seeing them near empty is a surreal and fun experience. For observers like myself that enjoy wandering and taking in views, it’s fun to enjoy the design and architecture of the rides and buildings without the bustle of people. Extra Magic Hour visits to the park, particularly the late Extra Magic Hours are great for enjoying a more sparsely populated park. Participating in a RunDisney event will likely give you some of the neatest park views. There is truly nothing like watching the sun rise over World Showcase at Epcot as you finish a half marathon in the closed park.
Disney’s Candlelight Processional
Yuletide mouseketeers like myself love visiting the parks during the holidays. In fact, you will be hard pressed to find a more beautiful or larger array of Christmas decorations anywhere outside Walt Disney World. One of the most special Christmas and vacation traditions for my family is attending the Candlelight Processional at Epcot each year. This show incorporates a celebrity guest reading of the Christmas story alongside choir music sung by high school chorus students from across the country, a Disney Cast Member choir and the Voices of Liberty singers. No moment during the holiday season takes my breath away quite like the sound of the trumpeters sounding the entry of the choir at the start of the Candlelight Processional.
Roaming Pandora at Night
Pandora- The World of Avatar in Disney’s Animal Kingdom is a breathtaking sight after the sun goes down. The bioluminescent forest comes alive with sounds, smells and beautiful sights. Stop by Pongu Pongu and snag a Night Blossom to sip on as you wander this section of the park.
