22 Things You'll Only Understand If You Grew Up Obsessed With Magic Kingdom At Disney World

What's a girl gotta do to get a turkey leg around here?

Posted on

1. Hey, they don't call Walt Disney World "The Happiest Place on Earth" for no reason, and Magic Kingdom is the real star.

2. You're so hype that the night before, you cram in as many movies as you can so your body and mind are FULLY ready.

3. And you always pick out an outfit that's festive AF.

4. And sing as many of the songs in the car on the way there, of course (probably on cassette tape).

5. Then that feeling of excitement hits your gut when you see this sign in the distance.

6. And you pull into the parking lot, which is even NAMED for the magical characters.

And you always have to say the number and character out loud on your way in the park to pretend like you'll remember it.

7. Then you walk up and get to go on your very first ~ride~

Underrated, if you ask me.

8. Followed by the ultimate choice: Monorail or Ferry?

Your choice says a lot about you as a person.

9. And as you enter the park, you get this map that you pretend like you'll need, even though you high-key know where everything is.

10. You walk through the gates and the smell of all the delicious Main Street shops whack you right in the childhood.

11. Then you take the corner, and there she is in all her glory: Cinderella's castle.

12. But you're no newbie, so you don't get too distracted. Instead, you know to go RIGHT to the popular rides to get your fast passes.

13. After that, you get in a line with your family and/or friends and have to come up with a game to pass the time.

But that's honestly half the fun.

14. And you act all cool because you're brave enough to go on The Haunted Mansion (in the daytime).

15. And you can't forget the smell of the water on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride.

16. While the parades are fun, you know that that's the best time to hit all the big rides, since everyone's distracted!

Just don't get trapped on the wrong side of the park while the streets are closed.

21. On the way out, you pass other people in a mad rush to get to their cars (and remember where the sweet heck they parked).

22. All the while thinking about how, even though your day JUST ended, you'll be counting the seconds until you get to go back and do it all again!
