This little girl was living the dream.


A favorite in the past and present. My Mom and I are both Beauty and the Beast obsessed. I’ve been in the musical 3 times, and I quietly mouth all the words. I don’t love being that girl, but at this attraction, I always am. My family always tries to catch the first showing.

2. One Man’s Dream

My favorite quote ❤

If you want a GREAT reminder as to why and how you’re in a theme park filled with such creativity, all you have to do is go to this attraction and feel inspired.

The infamous kiss :*

Pure 90s goodness. This musical experience never gets old. The puppets and lighting still makes me smile, so many years after I first watched it.

4. Tower of Terror

Spooky, right?!

Tip: Eat the ice cream AFTER you ride 😉

I like to either head toward this in the morning, or save it for night. It feels extra scary at night, and my heart always skips a beat in line, no matter how “old” I get or how many times I’ve ridden this.

5. Fantasmic

I love them all!

I think I first saw this show when I was 5 and I fell in love back then. All of the music equals quintessential Disney magic to me. I will always love Fantasmic.

Bonus!!! Way Back Wednesday MGM Must Dos!

1. The Hunchback of Notre Dame: A Musical

When I was just a tiny princess, I was slightly terrified of the stilt walkers/Frollo/the general intensity of this musical, but as I grew a bit older, I fell in love with this show. I miss it and wish it was there when I was older too, so I could appreciate it more!

2. Disney Stars and Motorcars Parade

This parade intrigued me because the cars were so nice, and there was such a variety of characters involved!

3. The Magic of Disney Animation Drawing Class

I just miss this so much. I know many of you do too. It was so relaxing to draw a favorite Disney character in the A/C on a hot day.

4. Studio Backlot Tour

Back when the Streets of America were filled with tourists, the Backlot Tour was always something I wanted to ride. I loved the interesting sights that sadly began to fade away visit after visit. I always felt like I was on a real movie set when I rode this ride!

5. Unique Characters

One time in MGM, off in a random area on Sunset Boulevard, I met JASMINE AND ESMERALDA in the same meet and greet. It was my little 5 year old self’s dream come true. I need to find the pictures from this meet-up. I was starstruck.
