In Part 1 of 2, I’ll share pictures from Disney World, and in Part 2 (coming soon), I’ll share my experience being on the cruise!
I love this Minnie-van!

We got into Orlando late on our first night, and went immediately from our hotel, Coronado Springs Resort, to Epcot so we could have dinner at delicious Teppan Edo. We got to walk through half of the park, and it was so beautiful!
I loved seeing how amazing the countries in the park (Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Morocco, Japan, the United States, Italy, Germany, China, Norway and Mexico) were represented, plus we were there during the Flower and Garden Festival so there were many gorgeous living sculptures (topiaries) around the park.
The next morning we woke up early to get to Animal Kingdom when it opened so we didn’t have to wait in a long line for the spectacular Avatar ride. We had to wait in line for maybe an hour, but there was SO much beauty to see that time flew by!
After the Avatar ride, we took a safari ride and saw some gorgeous animals in the park. Of course, I loved it. It’s pretty impressive the amount of land and animals Epcot has.

After we got back from our Disney Cruise (and rested), we went to the most magical of all, Magic Kingdom. The first time I went to Disney World, I was about 5. Cinderella is my favorite Disney movie so the first time I saw her castle, I took off running towards it because I was so excited! It’s still as spectacular all these years later.
Finally a group picture!
We got to the park late, just in time for the spectacular fireworks display (and in time to avoid the blazing sun)! The fireworks were so awesome, and it kinda blew my mind that they show movie clips on Cinderella’s castle itself! It looks like the actual castle is lighting up instead of just having images projected on it.
