I’ve been telling you all last week that we were on vacation the previous week. But I never told you where. You probably guessed it though. All this talk about Disney and we finally made it there. We left the Sunday prior to Halloween and arrived home 12:30 a.m. Halloween Day. This was our first time at Disney World. It was incredible. We are for sure going back.
A place with an entrance like this and 80-90 degrees weather in October is the place for us. Dreams really do come true at Disney World. My daughters can vouch for that. I took over 1,100 photos from our Disney vacation. These are a few…
We were amazed at all the little details put into making Disney authentic. The decor and motifs all fit into each theme at each location. The employees were all friendly and helpful. They go out of your way to make your dream come true.
The parades were fabulous and lively. The characters were always on cue acting as the part. Everyone with a smile on their face. Who wouldn’t want to be around that?
We rode some rides… new ones as well as the classics. No teacups though. It was down for maintenance while we were there.
We actually spent three days at Magic Kingdom. That was the kids’ favorite park. We stayed late one night to see the Electrical Parade and fireworks.
After being at the park all day, our girls were pretty tired and restless by the night. So we decided to head back to our hotel after the parade. We caught the ferry back to the parking lot so we can watch the fireworks from the ferry. It would have been amazing to be right under the gigantic fireworks, but I was able to catch a few good pictures of the castle and fireworks from afar.
We also spent a day at Animal Kingdom where we saw all sorts of amazing animals. And Here was the Tree of Life from the Lion King. Also watch the Lion King show that was pure magical. Love it!
Then a day at Epcot. That was the hottest day of the week. We treated our girls to a Princess breakfast at the castle in Norway of Epcot. It was also the 15th Annual International Food and Wine Festival. We don’t drink, but the food was delicious. There were foods to try from 28 different countries. I love international foods. Yum.
At Hollywood Studios (used to be called MGM Studios) we rode rides and watched some shows. Our girls loved every bit of it. Seeing their favorite movie characters come to life. It was a dream come true.
They also dressed up for our Princess breakfast. How adorable was that?! The Belle dress was too big for Elle, so I pinned it.
We met with all nine Disney princesses. Did you know they had nine? Go their autographs and gave each of them hugs. That was their most memorable moments, meeting the princesses.
Not to forget their other Disney favorites… Toy Story characters.
And you can’t go to Disney without seeing Mickey or Minnie. We saw Mickey, but didn’t want to wait in the 1 1/2 hours to take pictures with him. We only took pictures with Minnie. She was dressed in her Halloween costume and gave out candies. She’s so sweet.
We stayed at the Caribbean Beach Resort at Disney. It was nice. The pool was so cool and totally children-friendly.
We ate yummy food with our meal plan. That was worth the cost. I didn’t have to plan and cook meals each day. They had healthy choices for adults and kids. And there were quite the variety at each restaurant. We went with the quick service meal plan and it was perfect for our family.
And in the end, it was about these happy faces…
