Disney world just opened it's gates on July 1st for the first time since Covid-19 forced them to close their gates. We have all anticipated their re-opening, and now that it is open, here are some things you need to do now that Disney World is open.
1. Ride Splash Mountain
Splash Mountain is a thrilling ride that has a 52.5 drop, which completely soaks the rider.
The current theme is a briar patch with cute animal characters that can be seen throughout the ride.
It is important to ride it while you can because Disney World just announced that they would be re-creating this ride. The ride will be based on the movie "The Princess and the Frog." They have yet to release the dates for the renovations for the attraction.
2. Take pictures in front of Cinderella's Castle
The most iconic place to take pictures in Disney World is at Cinderella's Castle. Before Disney closed their doors, people would wait for their opportunity to take their picture in front of the Castle with their Mickey Ears.
While Disney World was closed, they updated the paint job on Cinderella's Castle, and it is now pink and blue!
So, make sure to take your pictures in front of the new and improved Cinderella's Castle.
3. Get a pair of Mickey Ears
Mickey Ears are a must-have souvenir! Disney has different ears ranging from Rose Gold ears, Graduation Ears, Birthday Ears, and many more. They make a great accessory with your masks in your photos that will be shared on your social media.
