I paid a discounted fee to attend the Disney Social Media Moms Land & Sea Celebration. Although I received accommodations, park tickets, some meals, gifts and special perks from the sponsors and Disney, all opinions are honest and my own.
Last month my Mom turned 60 and officially retired on the same day. Our trip to Disney Social Media Land & Sea Celebration was the perfect way to celebrate. As a retiree, my Mom is “living her best life” and she had a blast at Disney.
She loved the entire experience but she spent more time at Epcot than I did so I asked her to share her three must-visit attractions that a grown-up/senior (someone her age or older) might enjoy. These are her picks.
1) The Seas with Nemo & Friends
My Mom loved that this ride was a slower, more mellow (her words) ride. It’s based on the Disney classic “Finding Nemo”.
2) Frozen Ever After
We all got to experience Frozen together and it was so much fun. Epcot features a number of international pavilions that take you on a visit around the world without ever leaving the park. Just like the movie Frozen, the Frozen Ever After ride which is a little more fast-paced, but amazingly fun, is housed in the Norway pavilion.
3) Soarin’ Around the World
My Mom could not stop talking about Soarin’ Around The World. We all got to experience this one together and it was so awesome. I really loved all the details that you can actually see and smell, as you journey through one of the most iconic sites in the World such as the Eiffel Tower, The Great Wall of China and more. This ride was definitely one of my Mom’s favorites even though it lifts you 40 feet in the air during the “flyover”.
My Mom also had fun eating her way around the world at the various pavilions. If you prefer not to do any rides, there’s plenty to see and eat at each of the eleven international pavilions.
Epcot is perfect for kids and adults, but if you’re traveling with someone who prefers a slower paced experienced, they definitely need to experience Epcot.
