More on Kait Around The Kingdom:   My Magical Disney Shoot
  • Such a great list of ideas! We loved the test track at Epcot. What is the GM VIP lounge?

    • Kaitlyn Fickle Killebrew

      Each of the sponsors of Epcot attractions had VIP lounges built in their buildings in the parks! General Motors was a sponsor, so they have a lounge in Test Track!

  • Hannah had a great time “Drinking Around The World” at Epcot! It’s a long day with a lot of booze though, so mix in some water!


    • Kaitlyn Fickle Killebrew

      Yes, I usually share drinks with a friend because they definitely give you your money’s worth in the Margs!

  • Epcot is my favorite Disney park! I love visiting the different countries and the delicious foods!!

    xoxo A

    • Kaitlyn Fickle Killebrew

      Half of Disney for me is eating all the food!

  • Sophia

    This is an awesome bucket list! I know about the DVC member lounge above the Figment ride, but what are the other two lounges? I didn’t know they exist! Haha. And I’ve never been to Club Cool before, I need to do that ASAP!

    • Kaitlyn Fickle Killebrew

      You’d be surprised, there are quite a few lounges! Most are just repurposed or have limited access! I’ve only had the chance to see the Siemens Lounge in Spaceship Earth.

  • Wow, there is so much to do! I only went when I was eight, so things have changed drastically!

    • Kaitlyn Fickle Killebrew

      Yes! I feel like they have done a lot of changes for the better like enhancing their festivals that they put on throughout the year!

  • A frozen coke (preferably a diet) is something I could use RIGHT NOW! I can’t use my AC this week because of house construction & I am dying lol. Hope it cooled you off a bit!

    • Kaitlyn Fickle Killebrew

      Oh no! I hope you got that all squared away!
