Prince Harry recently enjoyed a nostalgic trip to Disney World where he revisited some of the park’s iconic attractions.
The royal prince enjoyed a one hour Disney World visit on Tuesday evening, People magazine reported. Prince Harry took a quick break from the Invictus Games to retrace some of the steps he may have taken during a childhood trip to the said theme park. The now 31 year-old royal prince previously visited Disney World as an 8 year-old child, along with brother Prince William and mother, the late Princess Diana.
Prince Harry even took a ride on one of Disney World’s famous attractions, Splash Mountain. The said park attraction also appears to hold special memories for the royal prince. He, along with Prince William and the late Princess Diana, enjoyed a thrilling ride on the same theme park attraction during the royal family’s 1994 visit, as stated in the same report.
In a previous interview with People magazine, Prince Harry recounted that they “went around” the said ride for “12 or 14 times.” He also recalled how the security personnel assigned to him at that time “had to get off and vomit over the bench.” In the said interview, Prince Harry also mentioned that he would like to have the chance to revisit Disney World and enjoy the park attractions “without causing too much of a stir.” He even stated that he may need to “go in a costume” and have his picture taken with the iconic character Mickey Mouse.
Prince Harry also reminisced of his childhood Disney World trip during an interview with “Good Morning America’s” Robin Roberts held in March 2016, ABC News reported. He described the said childhood trip as “very, very happy memories” that he shared with Prince William and the late Princess Diana. "There's all sorts of places over the world where we were very lucky to have those moments with our mother; and very, very happy memories," Prince Harry added.
The royal prince has been in Orlando to attend the 2016 Invictus Games, a Paralympic sporting competition held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex from May 8 until May 12.
