If you've been following me for very long, you may already be aware of my love of Disney. It started in March of 2000 when I took my very first trip to Walt Disney World. Since then I've managed to get my family and a few friends hooked as well. Some people ask why I continue to go back every chance I get or they ask "Isn't Disney World for kids?".
Disney is absolutely not just for kids. There is so much more to WDW than characters and rides. There are amazing restaurants to try, great shows to be seen, amazing fireworks every night, water parks, resorts to explore and so much more. I've been numerous times now and every time I experience new things and there are still many things I've yet to try.
WDW is a place where you can leave all your troubles behind and just be a kid again. I love that when I get there I don't have to worry about anything except having fun and enjoying a vacation with my family or friends. Everything from tickets, hotel and food is paid for before I get there so I don't even have to think about it. When you arrive you can park your car and not have to drive anywhere for the rest of the week. You just walk out and hop on a bus in front of your resort and you are off to whatever park you've chosen that day.
I wanted to share some images from my most recent trip with my best friend last February. We had the best time and tried lots of new things while we were there. I'll be making a post with images from each park, but of course I had to start with my favorite- Magic Kingdom!
For those of you who may be planning your first trip or thinking of going in the future, I'll be writing a post with a few of my favorite tips and post a link here when it's finished! Do you love Disney like I do? Leave me a comment below and tell me about your favorite WDW memory!
One of my favorite things to do in the afternoon is to grab a fresh baked ice cream cookie sandwich from the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor and share it while sitting on the grass in the hub in front of the castle. The parks can be so busy, I love to just sit and take it all in and relax for a bit.
Splash Mountain has always been one of my favorite rides at WDW. There is just something about it, a trip is not complete without riding it (multiple times when possible). If you have never ridden it at night give it a try, I love it!
