December 2017 -Goals

It's hard to believe it's December already.  The holiday decorations are up, the shopping list is getting checked off and the holiday baking has begun.  Before I get too busy tackling all that December has to offer, I thought I'd reflect on some goals that I want to accomplish this month...because why wait until January to set new goals.

Continue to grow my travel agent business:  Making the leap and trying something new is scary!  I've been putting a ton of effort into building my base as a travel agent.  My goal for December is to keep putting in the work and grow my clientele.  Want to book a trip?  Just e-mail me at kellyp@magicaladventurestravel.com While I love booking Walt Disney World vacations I also book other vacations too!

Grow blog and Facebook following:  Hand in hand with the previous goal, I'm trying to get my agency and blog out there.  You can help by following me on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/KellyPwithMagicalAdventuresTravel/ and by sharing this blog with all your running and Disney friends.

Practice Italian once a day: I took three semesters of Italian in college and absolutely loved it.  I've been trying to keep up with it on Duolingo, but it takes daily practice.  I've already put in my 10 minutes today and I'm going to try and do at least that much each day during December.

EMBRACE THE TAPER: I am the worst at tapering.  I get moody and irritable and stressed out and generally not all that pleasant to be around.  My last long run (20 miles) for Dopey is in the middle of December and then the taper begins.  I'm going to try and embrace the taper this time around and use that extra time to make the holidays a little extra magical for those around me.

What do you want to accomplish this month?

Best Rides in each Walt Disney World park

How do you even pick a "best" ride in each of the Walt Disney World parks? How do you compare a classic attraction like Peter Pan's Flight to something state of the art like Flight of Passage?  One has classic Disney storytelling and has been beloved by park guests for years while the other uses cutting edge technology along with storytelling, music, and even smells to create an immersive experience.  In order to pick the best ride in each park, I needed to develop some criteria.
1) Overall Ride Experience -This is perhaps the most important evaluation tool of all. A great ride experience should have you leaving the attraction with a smile on your face, eager to do it again.
2) Technical Aspects of the ride -Does the ride contain technical innovations?  Or classic technical skills used to great effect?
3) Ride-ability -Can everyone experience this attraction?  What is the height requirement?  What is the motion sickness factor? 
4) Ride Story -One area where Walt Disney …
