Our reader Karen Kavett recently visited Walt Disney World for the very first time and created an incredibly unique Trip Report to share with all of you. While partaking in all the usual activities she took the time to admire all the beautiful Typography that is featured all throughout the Magic Kingdom.
March 20, 2013 was my first ever trip to Walt Disney World. I was in Orlando for the YouTube conference Playlist Live and had been to Orlando several times before, but being huge Harry Potter fans, my friends and I had always only gone to Universal Studios for the Wizarding World. However, this time I insisted we go to Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World instead. I’m so glad I did, because I had a really fantastic day. It was raining when we got to the park mid-morning, but the skies cleared up completely by noon, and luckily, the park wasn’t too crowded.
Being a YouTuber, I knew I wanted to make a video to remember the trip, but rather than just do a normal video blog, I decided to film all the beautiful typography I saw and compile it into an inspiration montage. I definitely don’t know the ins and outs of the park as well as massive Disney fans do, but by making this video, I definitely learned to appreciate the details that go into making the park so seamlessly magical.
It was really funny though – I was there with two friends and they would be walking down the path while I would run off to film some new sign I spotted, leaving them to turn around a few yards up when they realized I was missing and have to wait for me to catch up. When I wasn’t filming though, I really loved the teacups (we spun around so fast!), the Thunder Mountain roller coaster (I screamed the whole time while my friend just laughed next to me), and finally getting to see the famous Disney castle in person after having been deprived of the experience as a child. I hope you guys like my video, and I can’t wait to go back and have even more adventures at Disney in the future!
