Welcome to those of you joining me from Capturing Magical Memories and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the Final stop on our Magical Blogorail.

Hello everyone, and special thanks to my friends on the Magical Blogorail Teal team for allowing me to grace their presence on this loop!  I love talking about Walt Disney World attractions, so I thought it would be a great challenge to come up with some that don’t require a ticket!

Monorail

Attraction #1: Ride the Monorail

First up on our list of favorite Walt Disney World “Attractions” without tickets has got to be riding the monorail!  You can go all around the Magic Kingdom area, you can ride over to Epcot and back, you can do both — and it’s all free!

Attraction #2: Resort Hopping/Taking a boat ride

One of the fun things to do at Walt Disney World is to take a boat ride over to the Magic Kingdom resorts — such as the Grand Floridian (pictured above).  You can enjoy a great, leisurely ride, get off, take in the scenery at each of the resorts, and more!

Attraction #3: Checking out the Boardwalk

The Boardwalk region of Walt Disney World spans Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot.  This unique area is home to three great resorts — the Beach Club Resort, the Yacht Club Resort, and the Boardwalk Villas.  In addition to the great resorts, there are incredible places to eat and shop, and every night, you can also check out the street performers as they entertain the Guests to the area (pictured below).

Attraction #4: Taking a Slide at the local pool!

Perhaps one of the biggest thrill rides outside of the parks is in at number four in our list…enjoying the slide at your resort swimming pool!  The slide at Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, for example, is about two stories high, and goes through two complete loops, with the second loop really picking up speed as you enter the pool! Fun!

Attraction #5: Characters in Flight*

Saratoga Springs Resort

*Note: When we purchased a ride on Character’s in Flight, I don’t recall being given a ticket, just the receipt of our purchase of the ride…so I’m counting this.

Characters in Flight was an attraction at Downtown Disney that we rode in 2010 (actually, I didn’t ride it, but my wife, daughter, and niece did).  You all probably know about it closing, but it has reopened, and is back on my list of things to do and enjoy!  The picture above was taken from the balloon by my wife!

Thank you for joining Magical Blogorail Teal this month. Our next loop will be in June with an all new theme.
