I recently wrote a post about my holiday memories in regards to Halloween, well off the back of that I have decided to write another post about one of my special holiday memories at Magic Kingdom.
We had walked around Magic Kingdom for most of the day taking our own photos but also having photo taken off us by the parks photo crew.
Towards the end of the day you can go along to the photo shops and view your pictures and purchase them if you wish (similar to how you do at Alton Towers or Drayton Manor).
Well we thought whilst it was parade time (which we had already seen by the way) we would go off to the photo shop and take as look at our photos, little did we expect to happen what happened to us whilst at the shop.
We went into the shop got greeted by the very friendly shop staff (like you do in all the Disney shops) and shown our pictures on the computer screen, some of the pictures we liked some we didn't to be honest. Well we decided which we were going to have and completed and transaction and left the shop.
Nothing unusual about that I hear you say and yes you're totally right nothing out of the ordinary at all, but as we were exiting the shop we noticed a side corridor leading to what looked like a mini cinema. We were right it was leading to a Kodak mini cinema area, full of old pictures of Disney World, original Disney characters and it was also showing a short film about the history of Walt Disney and the Disney Parks.
Boring I hear some of you say, yes possibly but here's where the magic of Disney gave us a special holiday memory, for we were the only ones in this room, little did we know it was where the characters came into for a break from the baking Florida sun.
This was where we got this special unique photo of my wife with Pinocchio posing in a photo. (You have to look very carefully to the left of my wife).
Magical memories then. I loved my time at Disneyworld, over a decade ago now, and can't wait to take the kids there one day :)ReplyDelete
What a wonderful post and a great memory. Seems like the most magical of places, I love the photos! It must have been amazing to find the mini cinema area too, that sounds fantastic. Thank you so much for sharing with #whatsthestoryReplyDelete
I would love to go to Disneyworld! Probably even more than my daughter would! :)ReplyDelete

I love Disney and am lucky enough to have been a few times now. I LOVE the Pinnochio photo, what a really special thing to have :) Thank you for linking to PoCoLo :)ReplyDelete
I went to Disneyland Paris when I was 17 after begging my mum for years and her not wanting to go. I was like a big kid and have lots of magical memories from there I can't wait to take my two one day. I think the cinema sounds far from boring and its a great pic! Found you through the Weekend Blog Hop (Mummy and the chunks) :)ReplyDelete
What an awesome memory! I didn't know about that little secret! I'm going to have to check it out this summer!ReplyDelete
I love the broomsticks on parade - is that a special parade? You mentioned Halloween at the top of your post - would love to go to WDW for MNSSHP!!
Thanks for sharing at #100DaysOfDisney which still has about 60 odd days to run!!
The broomsticks were just part of the beauty and the beast part of the parade and the Halloween night was fantastic all the good characters by day all the bad characters by night special time tbhDelete
I love looking at old photos of Disney World! What a great story and how cool that you got to hang out with the characters - I love the pic of your wife!ReplyDelete
