Name: Stacey Ehly

Where are you from? Bucks County, Pennsylvania

First memory of Disney? I remember going on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride when I was 2 years old and feeling like I was going to fall out of the boat when we “dropped” into the “pirates world” part of the ride. Going back as I got older, I realized that this “drop” wasn’t that steep or long after all. It’s great how your enjoyment of Disney evolves as you get older!

What makes Disney MAGICAL in your eyes? Disney is the most magical place on earth. When you drive under the “Welcome to Disney World” entrance, the outside world is left behind. You have entered a place of magic and pixie dust. The cast members are happy and so accommodating to every need that you can think of and some that you wouldn’t even think you wanted!! There are extra magical touches at your every turn: whether it is Peter Pan waving to you while you’re on board the Walt Disney World Railroad, receiving an award for being a wonderful grandfather from a cast member, or getting extra fastpasses just because! Disney magic is second to none and why we continue to go back year after year.

Favorite Disney destination and why? My favorite Disney destination is Walt Disney World because my family and I enjoy the many different attractions, shows, restaurants and resorts that are offered. Because Disney imaginers are always adding to and/or reinventing existing attractions at Disney World, we have a new and different experience every time we visit. I have also fell in love with the runDisney races offered throughout the year at Disney World and now get to experience my favorite place in a new and exciting way!

Favorite Disney Character and why? My favorite Disney character is Belle from Beauty and the Beast. I really like her because not only is she beautiful, but she is smart, likes to read, is kind, and has the ability to look beyond one’s looks to what lies inside.

Aerosmith ride

Favorite Disney Attraction and why? My favorite classic Disney attraction is the Pirates of the Caribbean. As I mentioned before, the ride holds my first memory of Disney World and so it will always remain near and dear to my heart. My favorite newer Disney attraction is the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster. I love Aerosmith and the ride is so much fun. It takes you from 0 to 57mph in seconds and then takes you through a series of neon lit twists and turns all to the sounds of Aerosmith’s music. I love it!

Favorite Disney Resort and why? My favorite Disney Resort is the Boardwalk Inn and Villas. I love its old fashion charm reminiscent of Atlantic City years ago. The lobby is pretty and quaint and has a fireplace with cozy chairs to sit on. The pool is carnival themed and has a cool clown water slide. Its location, on the boardwalk of course, can’t be beat. There are great restaurants, shops, clubs and entertainment all along the boardwalk, just outside of your room. You have to ability to walk to Epcot’s World Showcase through the International Gateway. You can also walk or take a water launch to Hollywood Studios. I enjoy the ability to run following an interesting route rather than having to circle around the resort several times. At night you can watch the fireworks from Hollywood Studios and Epcot as well.

Hollywood Studios

Favorite Disney Restaurant and why? I enjoy so many of Disney World’s fabulous restaurants that it’s hard to pick just one. My family and I always like to visit Chef Mickey’s for breakfast during our stays. It’s so fun to meet and take pictures with Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, and Pluto. I love when it’s time to “celebrate” and we dance and twirl our napkins around. The food for breakfast is delicious, from the Mickey waffles to the yummy quiches, there is something for everyone.

Favorite Disney Quick Service Restaurant and why? My family and I love to visit Sonny Eclipse at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café in the Magic Kingdom. We love Sonny Eclipse’s entertaining songs and antidotes. The restaurant offers three different areas, called bays, to order from. Each bay has different food choices; Bay 1 offers barbeque chicken and ribs, Bay 2 offers hot dogs and burgers, and bay 3 offers double cheese burgers, salads and wraps. Vegetable burgers are also offered and are delicious.

3 Disney characters you’d like to have dinner with and why? I would first love to dine with Captain Jack Sparrow from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. He is so funny and not bad on the eyes as well. I love how he seems not to have a clue, but is really developing some clever, unique plan to get out of whatever trouble he finds himself in.   Second, I would love to dine with the girl behind the mouse, Minne Mouse. I want to find out how she deals with the day to day pressures of being one of Disney’s beloved characters and also how she deals with being in a relationship with Mickey Mouse, who really is THE Disney character supreme. Finally, I would love to dine with Walt Disney himself. It is hard to wrap my mind around how one man could dream of such a wonderful place that makes so many people so happy.

Favorite Disney snack and why? My favorite Disney snack isn’t really a snack. I don’t know if you know this, but Disney World doesn’t sell gum anywhere on its property. However, Disney does sell Goofy Candy Co. Cinnamon Flavored Mints that are delicious. My family and I look forward to these mints all year. We purchase a ton of them to last us our whole vacation and beyond, but they never do last long enough!

Pirates of the Caribbean ride

Favorite Disney Movie and why? My favorite Disney Movie is Beauty and the Beast. As I mentioned before, Belle is my favorite Disney character because she is smart and kind. I love how the Beast and her relationship develops over time, there is no instant love. My favorite part is the end when the Beast is dying and Belle tells him that she loves him. He turns back into the Prince and they live happily ever after of course!

3 Favorite Disney Song and why? My three favorite Disney songs are Can You Feel the Love Tonight, Beauty and the Beast and Zippity Doo Dah because they were all played at my wedding! Can You Feel the Love Tonight was my processional, Beauty and the Beast was my wedding march and Zippity Doo Dah was my recessional!

Disney character you’re most similar to and why? I think I am most like Belle because I enjoy reading immensely, especially romances, I love to learn and I like to think I look beyond someone’s looks to what lies within.

If you could be one Disney mascot for a day who would it be and why? If I could be one Disney mascot for the day, I would be Cinderella. Come on, she is the ultimate princess and has one of the best happy ever afters!! Also, I love her dress, shoes and castle!

Disney World Travel Agent

If you could work at one of the Disney theme parks, what job would you want and why? If I could work at one of the Disney theme parks, I think I would like to work at Magic Kingdom’s Haunted Mansion. I’d like to tell all the “bodies” in the room to move to the “dead center”!

Disney’s Hollywood Studios

April 23, 2012

If you are curious on how movies are made then Hollywood Studios is the place to visit.  Disney’s Hollywood Studios offer plenty of attraction to suit everyone in your family.  There are high speed race, stunt shows, live shows, and live performances.  Hollywood Studios is centered on stardom and the glitz and glamour of Hollywood glory days during the 30’s and 40’s.

theme park Disney

As you walk through the streets of Disney’s Hollywood Studios you will notice the neon signs, chrome decors and art deco that depict the Hollywood during the 1930s and 1940s.  There are plenty of shops to suit your mood.  The shops carry clothing with logos, children’s costumes, and TV and movie memorabilia from your favorite TV shows and movies.  My favorite purchase from Hollywood Studios was a his and hers Mickey Mouse watch.

As for dining there is something for every budget meals run from $15 to $60 per person (excluding alcohol , tax, and tip).  Of course if you are in a hurry and want something quick and don’t want to sacrifice quality visit Backlot Express or ABC Commissary.  Satisfy your sweet tooth with soft serve ice cream or novelty ice-cream at Dinosaur Gertie’s Ice Cream.  For chocolate-cookie ice cream sandwich, sundae, or hand dipped cone stop by Hollywood Scoops and you will not be disappointed.
