Disney Recap!

Finally! I know this took me forever to get to, but I had to have a while to sit down and do it because I knew it was going to take a while to get through the eleventy billion pictures and pare them down to a somewhat non-ridiculous amount for a blog post. And boy did it ever! You guys, I'm really sorry in advance for the overabundance of pictures ahead.

So we arrived in the land of magic and fun on Sunday evening and proceeded to take goofy pictures in our room at the Swan:

Then we walked out to the Boardwalk to look around and enjoy the beautiful non-stifling weather! 

This is the last time you will see my hair down in these pictures. I straightened it every morning and the Florida humidity was like LOL, no. So up in a ponytail it went! 

Next we went to Downtown Disney for dinner at Planet Hollywood. 

The next day we started out in Animal Kingdom to ride everything we wanted to ride there (Expedition Everest, Dinosaur, and Dino-rama!) We also decided to ride the Kali River Rapids thinking, "We'll get a little wet, but we'll dry fast and we can run back to the hotel if we need to!" Yeah, we got soaked. We just happened to catch pretty much all of the biggest "rapid" on the ride. You can't really tell in the picture, but trust me, we were drenched! 

So that was a pretty uncomfortable bus ride back, but we were able to change clothes, so yay for that! Of course it pretty much rained half the day every day we were there, so we stayed drenched the whole time. But we made the best of it! 

Next we headed to Magic Kingdom! 

 That thing in the top right corner is called LeFou's Brew, and it's SO good! It's frozen apple juice with a hint of toasted marshmallow, topped with passion mango-fruit foam. Sounds really weird, but it's delicious! The one on the bottom is the coffee float made with vanilla soft-serve I always get from Auntie Gravity's in Tomorrowland. Yes, that is a poncho Adam's holding in the bottom picture. We wore those a lot.

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Haunted Mansion, and the Riverboat

I just got a picture of Marie from Aristocats, NBD. 

That evening we went back to the hotel and watched a ridiculous amount of crime TV. It was awesome. 

The next day we spent in Hollywood Studios! 

Lights, Motors, Action! Show

Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater where we ate dinner! Then we were ready to head back to the hotel since our shoes and socks were soaked through. We had some funnel cake on the Boardwalk that night because, clearly we had not eaten enough yet. 

The last day we went back to Magic Kingdom and finished up the day at Epcot. 

Main Street decked out for Fall! 

On the People Mover

Never enough shots of the castle! 

Test Track! 

In China! 

The ball! 

I don't have a pic of it, but we had the BEST caramel corn ever in Germany at the Werther's store. We were standing outside of it trying to decide where to go and the caramely, buttery smell wafted over. We were both like "WHAT IS THAT???" and we literally followed our noses over to the shop. Of course we got a bag of the caramel corn (it really did taste like Werther's caramel!) and a chocolate caramel filled cookie that was the size of my face. 

That was the end of our trip! We had a fabulous time in spite of the rainy weather! I can't wait to back as always, and until then, as Mickey would say...

  6. Aw so fun! Disney never gets old, I love it so much. I am definitely going to try the caramel corn next time, we ate at a 'Germany' restaurant when we went and it was possibly the best food I've ever had. We ate at 3pm and didn't eat again till the following morning!

  9. My daughter is OBSESSED with Test Track. She keeps talking about how, when we go back, she wants to ride it again. Lucky for her, we're going in April. She doesn't know.

    I love that you got to see Belle's castle and all of that new stuff. It looks awesome!

    So glad you guys had a great trip! Disney is the best.
