Magic Kingdom was so busy, it felt like we were carving paths with our stroller. What to do when wait times for rides are 1-3 hours? Well, “A Pirate’s Adventure” of course! On the far side of Adventure Land stands a not-well-known shack. You would miss it if your husband hadn’t researched it beforehand. Inside, you place your Disney card where X marks the spot. A thunderous pirate voice tells you which map you will need and what symbol starts your adventure. From there you walk all over Adventure Land (where you might see Jack Sparrow) looking for your next clue. When you find it, you place your talisman (your card) on the item to make a new symbol glow and listen for your next clue…where maybe a pirate pops out of the water and says, “Place your talisman against Calypso’s crab claw so that ye may light the fire!” We did 2 of 5 adventures. We will go back for more. As an added bonus, the maps are beautiful keepsakes.
This was an adventure to remember because as you can see here there were some neat surprises and with the help of our map and memorization it was kind of easy to find!
Oh man Georgian this is so cool. I really hope you get my message. I have never even seen a blog before so you are teaching me about something so new. I was sick on Thursday so didn’t get to share your stuff with the class but they will be so excited when I show them your pictures on Monday. I will try to get some of the students to reply to you as well. I hope you are having a great time. Not to bring you bad news but we had 15 cm of snow here last night. Ug!
Hi everybody. I have had a great time in florida! I also am having a great time in disney world! I tried a new roller coaster called big thunder mountain. I loved it but if you have been on it it is like musical express. Very Fast! I also am going to get Merida’s signature. We aren’t going to get Elsa or Anna’s signature because the line up is 5 hours long! Heard you guys got some snow. Well, see you in 8 days!
Evie, it looks like you are having a great time. We really miss you.
Today is happy day. We had an assembly first thing and we did lots of fun dance songs.
We are learning about tricky Leprechaun words and doing Leprechaun math.
Did you know that spring arrived today? It doesn’t look like it, though. It is snowy here! It looks like you have summer.
We all can’t wait until you come back.
From all of you Grade One friends
Maps! Adventures! How exciting!
I miss all of you too! Home soon…
We just returned from our trip south. Our drive was great Gord! Definitely part of the experience. Looks like you are having so much fun. We spent a day at Playalinda and loved the old Florida feel of this beach area. Don’t forget to get your oranges picked! We will check in and look forward to seeing/hearing more about your adventures.
Good to hear your trip was great! We just got in from Hollywood Studios. An awesome day! I will look into Playalinda! Sounds art deco… Picking oranges? Now that sounds like a fun thing to do. Please do check in. We will try to post something new each day!
Playalinda is more of a conservation area. There are walking and driving trails, the beach and a lookout where manatees hang out this time of year as they migrate. We were really lucky to see dolphins playing off shore the day we were at Playalinda. We also had jelly fish join us. Don’t follow a gps – find what is known as a map and take directions from that – the security at NASA will thank you, although they do have a good sense of humour about lost Canadians!
Nice looking blog, your photography is very unique. Looks like a great trip!
