Welcome to those of you joining me from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 4th stop on our Magical Blogorail.
You know, for someone that doesn’t do a whole lot of drinking, the idea of celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with green beer and other alcoholic beverages just doesn’t do much for me. So when I volunteered to join the Magical Blogorail Red team this month, I guess I wasn’t really thinking it through very well when the subject is St. Patrick’s Day! Still, I gave it considerable thought, and in the course of that thinking, came up with what I think is a fun way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at Disney — or even a way to celebrate just being at Disney, even if it’s not St. Patrick’s Day!
So who’s up for a little challenge? My little game is to see what we can find at each of the parks that is green, and to experience something at that park, such as a ride or a show, that showcases something of the color green in it. For starters, let’s take a look at the Magic Kingdom! As you can see, Mickey has lovely green plants and grass to fit the bill for our easy challenge — and for some of the attractions, you’ve got It’s a Small World, Peter Pan’s Flight, and on and on that will feature the color green in them.
Of course, the Animal Kingdom will probably have the most green in evidence — one stop at Kilimanjaro Safaris will take care of that requirement!
Over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios there is plenty of green to go around, such as this topiary of Sorcerer Mickey! Of course, all you need to do is go check out Muppet*Vision 3D to get all the green you need — after all, as Kermit says — “It’s not easy being green.”
Lastly, at Epcot there is plenty to feature that greenery. For starters, there is some great greenery in the train layout at the Germany Pavilion. Also, though, you need to close out the evening with Illuminations, and you might see this green explosion in the fireworks show:
So it’s not your typical St. Patrick’s Day post, but I hope you had fun with it and maybe got some ideas for a celebration of your own — even if you aren’t visiting on St. Patrick’s Day!
Thank you for joining me today. Your next stop on the Magical Blogorail Loop is Return to Disney.
