David Bromstad, the host of “My Lottery Dream Home,” has an infatuation with Disney World that’s downright goofy. We asked the Minnesota native for suggestions on how to negotiate the planet’s most popular theme park.
1) Take your time. “Especially going down Main Street. Enjoy the moment, enjoy the smells. Don’t rush to the rides. Meander to them. You can get fast passes in advance. They’re free [online after you buy a ticket], so you don’t have to wait in line.”
2) When it’s time for rides, focus on the roller coasters. “They make me feel like a kid again. Don’t try to be an adult. You have to do Space Mountain. It’s old and wonderful, especially when you’re wandering around in the dark. The new Seven Dwarfs Mine Train ride is fabulous and fun. It’s like Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, but smoother.”
3) Eat and be merry. Bromstad suggests Liberty Tree Tavern. “It’s really good, like a Thanksgiving feast. They bring everything out, all kinds of meats and potatoes and wonderful vegetables. It’s also one of the few places in the Magic Kingdom that serves alcohol.”
