We finally went to Disney! I feel like it took FOREVER to come and it went by so quick! We left on Thursday morning drove ALL THE WAY to Florida and spent the night in Fernandina Beach, Florida, which is right outside of Jacksonville. We checked out the beach and quickly headed to Disney. We stayed at the Disney All Star Movie resort, which was perfect for us. It was small but, we weren’t planning to stay in our room much. The next day was HALLOWEEN!!! We spent the day at Magic Kingdom. We took a little break and went back to our room and changed into our costumes and headed back to Magic Kingdom for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party!! We were out until 1 am! The kids were EXHAUSTED!!
The next day was Sunday. We explored Animal Kingdom, which was our favorite. The crowds weren’t bad, but it was HOT!!! Of course we went to Disney when it was unseasonably warm! That night we headed to Downtown Disney for Carsyn’s princess make-over at the Bippity Boppity Boutique!
Monday was Epcot! We had to get up bright and early for breakfast with the princesses! That was so fun and they even sang to Brayden for his birthday.
Tuesday was Hollywood Studios but most important it was Brayden’s Birthday!!!! I think this was the hottest day, I think we sweated off a few pounds!
Wednesday was the last full day we had at Disney. It was a “free” day. We didn’t have plans because I wanted us to decide as a family where we wanted to go back to. We decided to go back to Animal Kingdom. We did everything all over again and it was still a blast. I think out favorite was the Safari.
Over all it was an AMAZING TRIP! I have a few hundred more pictures! We can’t wait to go back.
We will go in WINTER (Jan. Feb. March)
We won’t go on a holiday
We won’t do the dining plan… We were so sick of eating disney food by the end of the week AND it was A LOT OF FOOD!
We won’t waste time to see characters (been there done that).
We would do the park hopper. There were a few nights when we could have gone to another park because they stayed open late to guests but we had already been to a park during the day.
