9 Things You Simply Must Do When You Visit Disney World

Walt Disney World is my favorite vacation spot, and I want to share with you the must do's for your next vacation. There is so much to do while you are visiting Disney and hitting the highlights is always important. This list contains new and old attractions, magical experiences, and a new way of checking what as always been at Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

1. The World of Avatar

The newest attraction in Disney's Animal Kingdom as two rides in the Avatar world called Pandora. Avatar Flight of Passage and Na'vi River Journey, both opened this year and it is an incredible place to go. Each of these rides feel like you are stepping into the Avatar movie and exploring Pandora. Have you ever wondered what it is like to fly on a banshee? Experience a 3D flight over the oceans, in waves, through trees, and animals. Next, visit the river and ride through the beautiful and creative scenery from their world.

2. Expedition Everest

The closest I will, probably ever, get to Mount Everest, thanks to Disney's Animal Kingdom. This is a thriller coaster of high speed, forward and backwards, and hills. Come up close and personal with the Yeti, which screaming at the top of your lungs.

3. Space Mountain

Disney's Magic Kingdom in Tomorrowland is full of future rides and this is one of the attractions. Though this isn't one of my all-time favorites, it guarantees a high speed ride through the dark with sudden drops and turns.

4. Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith

Join Aerosmith. at Disney's Hollywood Studios, for a wild ride in a super-stretch limo to their show! Remember to keep your head back or you will be all over the place when you go zero to 60 in a couple of seconds. Oh, and smile for the camera! This is my favorite ride at Disney World because while you are going upside down and turning sharp corners at around 60 mph, Aerosmith is playing right in your ear! What is better than singing on a roller coaster? Nothing else.

5. The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror

Do you dare to step into this haunted elevator or will you pass on the thrilling and haunting time? If the ride doesn't scare you, the Disney workers (bellhops) with their evil stares and haunting tone will send shivers down your back or you might laugh - it is up to you. The main haunt of Disney is on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood Studios waiting for you.

6. Disney Springs

Downtown Disney was re-imagined as Disney Springs, but World of Disney and the movie theater are still my favorite places to visit.

7. Magic Kingdom's Firework Show

A spectacular firework display accompanied with Disney songs from a variety of movies.

8. My Disney Experience App

To make the best of your Disney vacation, download this app that shows maps of the parks, wait times for rides and shows, and list for fastpasses.

9. FastPasses

Want to skip the long wait time, here's your chance. Be sure to check fastpasses at least 60 days ahead of your vacation!

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

Ross Woodhall

While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
