Dreaming of Disney... Memories of Mickey's BBQ

June 26, 2019

My favorite Disney memory... Hi, I'm Annette and just a couple of Mardi Gras ago we took my 5 year old twins to Disney World for the first time. It was so magical in so many ways, but my favorite part of the trip almost didn't happen!

Ok, on to my Disney memory. When you're planning your first Disney World vacation ou get so much great advice from those that have been to Disney many times before. Between all the various recommendations we decided not to book Mickey's Backyard BBQ. But while we were there I decided at the last minute to add it back to our plans and I'm so glad we did. Even though the food was great and layed out like we were royalty, my kids probably exclusively ate the ice cream at the entire event. But I figured what the heck - it's vacation, right?

But what they really loved was the dancing and interacting with their favorite characters. We bought the VIP tickets and got in a little early with a small group. They met Mickey, Minnie and the entire gang right away so by the time the rest of the party came in...my kids felt like they already went "way back" with the characters.

My little ones adjust slowly to big situations so I was so excited how quickly they felt all that Disney Magic and jumped in on all the dancing and games! Those memories will stay with me forever.

My favorite Disney memory...my family at Mickey's Backyard BBQ at Walt Disney World. Well, that's my favorite memory for now. I can't wait for our next trip and new memories to come!
