Take a virtual audio trip in this installment of the WDW-Memories podcast, brought to you in immersive binaural sound, experiencing another magical memory from Walt Disney World. In today’s memory, you will join my family as we change our plans, and take the Walt Disney World Railroad to Fantasyland.
Well hello and welcome to the WDW-Memories Podcast where together we relive that Walt Disney World Magic. My name is Lou and I’ll once again be your host on this magical adventure.
The world outside is covered in ice, but thankfully we’re warm and dry in our home. Oh how I long to be in the Florida sun right now, feeling that warmth on my skin and smelling the humidity in the air. It’s so funny how the mind can take you there, just with a few memories, maybe today’s memory will help you escape there as it did me when I edited it together. So let’s get into it.
For today’s memory, we are continuing our second day in the parks. It’s a hot September afternoon in 2016. If you remember from last time, we had just completed hopping from Epcot to the Magic Kingdom using the Walt Disney World Monorail system. We had the target of going to Splash Mountain and took one of the most direct routes through Liberty Square and Frontierland to get to the backmost corner of the park. We’ll stumble into the Notorious Banjo Brothers, and Bob as we pass by the Country Bear Jamboree. After they leave, we’ll enjoy listening to the sounds of the park as we make our way back to Splash Mountain. The music is so peaceful and relaxing, but then we realize that the line is 1 hour, and we can’t do that to the kids again, no matter how bad they want to ride. So instead, we sprint for the train which is in the station now above us, but again, we don’t make it. But thankfully time flies, and in no time at all, the next train arrives, and we’ll enjoy a quiet ride around to our stop in Fantasyland.
I think I’ve proven between these last two memories, that it’s just not worth sprinting to the transportation. Slow down and enjoy yourself. Also, use a good planning tool, like line, to help you decide what to ride. That said, the Walt Disney World Railroad is so cool. Well not temperature cool, because on a hot day, it’s not cool at all when you’re sitting still. But it’s such a calm and relaxing way to see the park, if you can work it into your visit, it will definitely not disappoint.
Today’s memory is in binaural once again, so I’d suggest putting those headphones on to fully immerse yourself in the memory.
Now join my family as we circle around the back of the Magic Kingdom on a Walt Disney World original.
