    Welcome to the first stop aboard Magical Blogorail Red. Enjoy the ride as we share which Character we would choose to escort us through Magic Kingdom Park for a day.

    My kids and I talked about this topic for quite a while. My oldest said he’d choose Captain Jack Sparrow, because he’d be crazy, goofy fun on roller coasters. My daughter chose either Princess Cinderella or Princess Aurora so she would have the royal treatment and enjoy being pampered all day, and my youngest said he’d choose Mickey Mouse, because it’s Mickey’s place after all! But a condition of our choosing this topic was that we had to pick someone other than the world’s most famous mouse. When I started thinking about it, I knew I’d want my personal Disney Character tour guide at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Park to be…drum roll…wait for it…Kermit the Frog!

    Alright, I know Kermit was not originally a Disney icon, but he is now, and I’ve been a big fan of his since I was little. He and his pals have quite the posh place over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios (except for when they blow it up at each performance). It may not be easy being green, but seeing what an all-around nice guy Kermie is, I know we’d have an over-the-rainbow good time together.

    I think Kermit has the best modes of transportation. We could cruise Magic Kingdom on his tandem bike, joyride in his friend Fozzie’s taxi, or—and this is the best one of all—travel by map! Boy, would my feet thank me at the end of the day if we could just poof from one Magic Kingdom Land to another without having to walk miles back and forth. We’d get to see and do so much more that way, because we wouldn’t have to meander through crowds over any distance. We’d just point to Space Mountain on the Park map, and voila! We’d be there, and then point to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and suddenly arrive there without the trek. And if we can travel by map, we might have time to squeeze in a visit to Disneyland Resort or the international Parks too. It would be great!

    But I think the best part of hanging out with Kermit would be ending our day sitting together by the Castle moat, admiring the fireworks in the sky and their reflections in the water below, and then singing our own finale of “Rainbow Connection” (with Kermit’s banjo accompaniment, of course). “What’s so amazing that keeps us star-gazing, and what do we think we might see? Someday we’ll find it, the rainbow connection—the lovers, the dreamers, and me. All of us under its spell, we know that it’s probably MAGIC!” That would indeed be a magical time! I just hope Miss Piggy won’t mind.

    TODAY’S TAKEAWAY:
    To honor my pal Kermit, study frogs! Homeschool Share has an excellent unit study (don’t worry, there are no dissections!) with free pdfs and other downloadable exercises. Enchanted Homeschooling Mom also has some great suggestions. Both are geared toward younger students but could certainly be adjusted to suit your older kiddos as well.

      Great choice Jodi! I love Kermit, and I can’t think of a better way to end the day that to sit by the moat watching fireworks. :)

        Thanks, Donna Kay! Wouldn’t that be great?

    • Rosanne_Mottola

      Jodi- what a phenomenal choice! I love the ability to travel by map – that would save so much time and foot pain! And maybe, just maybe, we can sing while we tour!

        I so wish we could really travel by map! And I do sing while I tour :)

    • ReturnToDisney

      I’ve always loved that song of Kermit’s too!

      • http://www.magicalmouseschoolhouse.com/ Jodi / MagicalMouseSchoolhouse

        It’s a classic! :)

      Kermit is such a great frog and let me tell you I don’t like frogs…but for him I will make an exception. =)

      • http://www.magicalmouseschoolhouse.com/ Jodi / MagicalMouseSchoolhouse

        LOL! Who could say no to those big eyes?

    • Lisa Cameron

      Kermit was my first boyfriend! I still love him! Great choice!

      • http://www.magicalmouseschoolhouse.com/ Jodi / MagicalMouseSchoolhouse

        Sweet! Gotta love Kermie!

    • http://www.adisneymomsthoughts.com Beth Green

      Kermit is a great choice! I didn’t even think of a muppet as a guide!!!

      • http://www.magicalmouseschoolhouse.com/ Jodi / MagicalMouseSchoolhouse

        Yeah, he’s not originally Disney, but he’s every bit as loved! :)

      I would be singing ‘Movin’ Right Along’ most of the day and looking for a fork in the road. (sorry – my age is showing)

      • http://www.magicalmouseschoolhouse.com/ Jodi / MagicalMouseSchoolhouse

        Hahaha! I know! Aw, I miss The Muppet Show!

    • http://heidi-strawser.com Heidi Strawser

      I would have never thought to pick Kermit, but I like your reasoning! I can just see Miss Piggy trailing along behind, complaining the whole thing, though!

      • http://www.magicalmouseschoolhouse.com/ Jodi / MagicalMouseSchoolhouse

        I could see her shoving me out of the way all day!

    • AshleyAspires

      I would have never thought to pick one of the Muppets, but what an awesome idea!! :D Kermit makes me laugh!

      • http://www.magicalmouseschoolhouse.com/ Jodi / MagicalMouseSchoolhouse

        Love that little green guy!

    • JenniferLissak

      I love all of your reasonings – I would never even have considered him, but you’re right – he has great transports and music! So much fun!

      • http://www.magicalmouseschoolhouse.com/ Jodi / MagicalMouseSchoolhouse

        Kermie always makes me smile!

    • http://www.mydreamsofdisney.com Mickey

      I love Kermit the Frog, Jodi! I hadn’t thought of him for my park buddy, but I could definitely do that!

      • http://www.magicalmouseschoolhouse.com/ Jodi / MagicalMouseSchoolhouse

        I think he’d be a fun Park pal!

    • http://www.disneyonwheels.com/ Melissa – Disney on Wheels

      I love your choice! I would never have thought to choose Kermit but he would be the perfect guide.

    • DIStherapy

      What a terrific choice- you know you would be walking around with a smile on your face all day long! One question though: Does Kermie meet the height requirement for most rides??

    • Emily B.

      Love this- we are headed to Disney for Spring break in 3 weeks and this will be a GREAT topic of discussion to cure boredom in my 3 kids while on the road!!!!
