{Editor’s Note: Sophie joins us today to talk about the things that she is most excited about for our upcoming trip to California!}

Sophie: Hi Guys! Long time no see! Well, today I’ve got a guest with me! World of Disney, meet Mr. Reporter.

Reporter: you can call me “Image” Sophie. (It’s short for “Imaginary”)

Sophie: Ok then, “‘Image’ Reporter” every body! On with the interview!

Image: What are your top five hopes about California?

Sophie: I made a bucket list:

  1. Seeing one of my two best friends, Jagan, in person again!
  2. Seeing World of Color and trying to convince my mom to let us stand in the “Wet Zone.”
  3. Going back to DODGER STADIUM!!!!!
  4. Two words: Thrift. Shopping.
  5. Going to the San Diego Zoo!

Image: Now, I notice that only one of your top five has something to do with Disney. Why is that?

Sophie: Unlike Walt Disney World, Disneyland is small. In my opinion, you could get through every thing the parks have to offer in a day. And you’ll find, that the distance between Disneyland and the California Adventure is a mere 100 yards. So, my family decided that we would see more of California. The most un-Disney that we got during the first trip was a trip to Beverly Hills; to see the address of Walt. This time, we’re going more towards the California side of California. Does that make sense?

Image: a little. But, more LA and less Disney?

Sophie: Yes. There’s not a problem with that. Is there?

Image: No. But, do you think we can zero in on Disney?

Sophie: Yes. I figured you’d ask that of me, so I made another bucket list:

  1. World of Color [standing in the ‘wet zone’ (good luck trying to convince Mommy to do that)]
  2. Splash mountain [front row (of course)]
  3. Mickey’s Fun Wheel [shaky carts (Minnie is preferred)]
  4. Soarin’ over California [front row (best view)]
  5. Pirates of the Caribbean [front row (that’s the wettest)]

Image: Nice choices.

Sophie: thank you, Image.

Image: Well, that wraps up the interview thank you for your time, Ms. Sophie. Tooddles!

Well! That was nice. OH! I almost forgot! The Trivia! Today’s question is:

Q: Which Famous character made an appearance in Frozen as a stuffed animal?

  1. Winnie the Pooh
  2. Mickey Mouse
  3. Tinker Bell
  4. Potato Head

The answer:

  1. Mickey Mouse

It’s okay if you got it wrong. That was an Easter egg question. You have to look very closely through out the film. But here is a clue.

How people see that, I have no idea.

But I hope you enjoyed my little interview with myself — I mean Mr. Image Reporter — and bye!!!

Sophie’s Favorite Disney Character Meals

Disney Dining Reviews

Hi guys! It’s me, Sophie, and today I’m discussing my favorite Disney character meals!!! (I have five so I’m making it into a countdown.)

5) Epcot’s AkershusIt’s a restaurant in the Norway Pavilion. The characters there are Disney Princesses, such as Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, and Belle. By the way, did you hear that the Imagineers have taken out the ride in Norway? They’re going to replace it with a Frozen-themed ride. The Frozen ride had BETTER be at least twice as good. Or I’m going to be very disappointed in Disney.

4)The Beach Club’s Cape May Café. It was a long time ago, but I remember when we went to the Cape May Café for breakfast. It features Minnie, Goofy, and Donald. The food was delicious. Best cinnamon bun EVER! It was covered in icing, and warm. Just like the doughboy one’s we made at home, only bigger. Oh man, just typing about it’s making my mouth water. And I’m not kidding.

the Mickey-shaped thing was my "b-day desert" Mom did NOT approve :)

3)Magic Kingdom’s Crystal Palace. It’s nice to just walk into a giant Victorian-style green-house-like building. The Crystal Palace is home to the Winnie the Pooh characters. Every 15-20 minutes or so, they’ll host a parade. It’s not a sit-and-order restaurant. It’s more of a sit-and-wait-for-a-turn-to-go-to-the-buffet restaurant. That’s a mouth full. Try saying it five times fast.

My favorite Winnie the Pooh character!

2) Epcot’s Garden Grill Restaurant. The Garden Grill is probably, the best built restaurant in Disney, at least in my opinion. Name another restaurant that spins, allowing you to look at a jungle, desert, prairie and more. The Garden Grill is built on top of a ride known as Living With the Land. This ride goes through the hydroponic gardens, where they grow all the fruits and veggies that are used, cooked and eaten in the Garden Grill.

1) Contemporary’s Chef Mickey’sIf you ask me, there is no better place to eat breakfast than at Chef Mickey’s. The buffet includes original breakfasts in a disney style. Mickey-shaped waffles, disney brand jam and the cinnamon role shaped like a hidden Mickey. I personally think this is the best of all character restaurants!

Minnie Mouse make a superior waitress

Well, that’s all I’ve got for now — why not comment on what your favorite character dining is? Ta ta! :)

This Girl’s Take on Cinderella – with Disney Trivia too!

Cinderella 2015

Hi Guys! It’s me, Sophie, and here is the trivia question for today! The question is: You can “Come in a Stranger, Leave a Little Stranger” in ____?  The Answer is: The Adventure’s Club. If you ask my Dad, or me, we will tell you that this remix of Cinderella is the best ever made by Disney. It’s not animated, but the effects are just as amazing. One of my favorite parts of the movie is when the carriage, dress, attendants, and horse-mice all transform around Cinderella. The pumpkin turns back and shrinks, with Cinderella still inside! You could see the seeds! The horse had extremely big ears too. My mom says that two of the characters, Ella and Druzella, played roles in Downton Abby. In my opinion, the remix is even better than the original animated movie.

Well, thats all I’ve got. But don’t worry, my Dad has a lot more to say about this movie, which you can read about here, or, if you haven’t seen the movie yet, check out this post that has two of the trailers in it! So, Bye, but thanks for stopping by to read what we’ve got for you at the Kid’s Corner and all over the site! :)

Sophie’s Favorite Attraction – Splash Mountain!

Welcome to the first stop aboard Magical Blogorail. Enjoy the ride as we share Disney attractions reviews from our kids.

The 52' Drop from the top of Splash Mountain!

The 52′ Drop from the top of Splash Mountain!

Hello Disney Fans!!! Today, I’m writing about my favorite attraction: Splash Mountain!!! Would you believe that for a long time, I was utterly, terrified of that drop?  If you’ve been with us in an earlier time, then you know that story. If this is the first post you’ve read, kick back and let me type a story for you.

It was in the trip of 2012. My parents and I were with a friend who loved Splash Mountain. One thing lead to another, and somehow, they convinced me to go and ride with them. It was the scariest thing for me! I was so paranoid that we would actually go into the briar patch! About half way through “the laughing place,” Daddy’s hat fell down and touched me. I. WAS. SO. SCARED!!! I thought it was an oversized queen bee about to sting me or something! I was screaming like bloody murder! The funniest part was when we were going up to the top. My mom was next to me, and she said that I was holding on so tightly, I was cutting off circulation. As we were going down the drop, I prepared for a lot of thorns. But, we didn’t go into the briar patch. I was like “AHHHHH!!!…. oh.” I saw that we went through a small tunnel. I was actually going under the briar patch! So now that i’m not afraid of the briars, I really like the ride, as you can tell from this picture of a group of us going on Splash Mountain (I’m in the pink Minnie Ears in the front on the right).

Getting ready to ride Splash Mountain again!

Frozen 5K… DISNEY STYLE!!!

Hey guys!!!!! I’ve got some news!!! But first, I’ve got a trivia question for you! Since nobody commented a question, I’ll just give you one from my Disney Book of Trivia! Question: I heard that Walt Disney had an office in Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland. is this true? If so, where in the castle was it? David, Monterey CA. The answer: There was no office in Sleeping Beauty Castle, but Walt did have an apartment over the Main Street Fire Department, where he relaxed and entertained VIP visitors. So, about the news, the title says it all. My family and I are going on a trip to Walt Disney World in February to run in the Disney Princess 5K (although, we’re calling it in the house the Frozen 5K because it’s Frozen themed!) It will be a four-day-three-night trip. We leave on Wednesday afternoon, we come back on Sunday. Please tell me what you think I should wear to run the 5K.

this is the route of the 5k

this is the route of the 5k! Yes, I know it says 2013 but it’s the same route! :)

 

I’ll be checking the poll every now and then. So please vote!  Thanks, and go out and have a great Disney Day!
