Hey everyone- I’m BACK! And I’ve missed you all! I tried to catch up on comments and blogs yesterday when I got back to Boston, which I did a little but will for sure continue doing so today. Along with catching up with work 😦
Anyways, so for everyone who I left bamboozled in regards to my vacation it was in fact to
Which btw, is 2 words- the whole time I thought it was DisneyWorld…
Literally, THE most magical place. For those of you who have me on Instagram, Snapchat: Jennyxox, and Twitter probably already knew because I can’t contain myself and needed to post 100 things throughout the trip.
First off, I want to say how entirely grateful, thankful, blessed, and happy I was to be able to experience this trip. Lauren and I had such an incredible journey each day was filled with the uttermost magical experience possible.
I’m so overwhelmed because I have so many things to share with you all and on top of that pictures on pictures on pictures. So my plan is to do this day by day so that I can keep each post to a minimum. Eeek, I am SO excited to relive this trip.
PART 1 of DISNEY WORLD: Day 1-2
So Lauren and I flew to Orlando, FL on Thursday afternoon, luckily its only a 3 hour flight.
Our trip was Thursday-Tuesday.
We landed, got to our beautiful resort (which will be a post in its own), settled in, ate dinner, and just chilled the rest of the night.
And on Friday, we went to MAGIC KINGDOM
You take the monorail over to the park, I swear our three modes of transportation all week was Carlos our driver, the monorail, and the ferries.
Upon entering the park Stitch was the first character we saw.
It’s crazy how things changed; I remember back in the day when you saw a character walking around you could go up and snap a picture with them but now it’s all about waiting in line or scheduling a time which definitely makes sense but at the same time totally inconvenient.
The Christmas Tree
My Nikes didn’t match my cross-body and I was a little distraught throughout the day LOL. I also would’ve loved to have worn cute sandals but sneakers is a MUST with the amount of walking you have to do.
So after a good half hour of admiring and taking pictures we carried on.
We went on pretty much all the rides, which were so cool even as an adult. They really outdo themselves bringing the Disney magic to life.
Side note: we luckily went on an off season time so although it was crowded it most certainly was not AS crowded as it could be. Wait lines for rides were anywhere between 10-30 minutes whereas on a “on-season” time it could go up to 1-2 hour wait times. That goes for waiting to meet characters as well.
Another side note: The weather at this time is PERFECT. Mid 75 but definitely cooler at night.
These were some of our waiting in line selfies…
umm this snapchat filter though, on point 😉
These were some of the characters we saw and met:
Aladdin and Jasmine
Pooh & Tigger; they were the funniest to be around
Daisy and Minnie
And our selfie with Buzz
My most favorite ride at this park was for sure Space Mountain. It’s a roller coaster in the pitch black but with stars, planets, everything space related (obvi) so it feels like you’re literally flying in space.
Peter Pan and Little Mermaid were close seconds. I have pictures of them all, it was hard to really capture the essence of the rides but I also wanted to thoroughly enjoy the ride itself.
So as it got late, and our feet were aching (fitbit said we did about 16,000+ steps), the sun was down; we watched a little parade go by which was so fun and cute…but the real magic was the Frozen show they put on at the Cinderella Castle.
Prior to the show the castle lights up different colors.
This is the castle from the back
I loved this pink one
And then the Frozen skit came on and OH MY you guys, it was SO MAGICAL. I was almost in tears at how amazing it was; I managed to get it all caught on video and I rewatch it over and over.
But at the end of all the magic, the Cinderella Castle looked like:
So incredibly stunning.
I swear throughout the entire day, I asked aloud about 100 times “How do they do it??!?” to almost everything.
And then leaving the park, back towards the Christmas Tree all lit up
Magic Kingdom is truly a magical place, they don’t have Magic in its name for nothing- and certainly a one of a kind experience. You must go if you have the opportunity!
Come back tomorrow for Day 3!
