My Fourth Trip to Walt Disney World (April/May 2009)

Hello everyone! I hope you are well. Today I am back with another post in my Disney trip recap series, and today I am talking about my fourth trip to Walt Disney World! I’m sharing everything I can remember about the trip, and what I learned from this trip! I’ll break down the main points below, but to hear all about this trip check out the video below! This trip was a little different because it was actually a school trip! I’m not completely comfortable sharing as many pictures this time around because group pictures have people that I don’t talk to anymore and can’t get their permission, but I hope you understand! I’ll still try and find some pictures to put in the video 🙂

The Main points:

  • this trip was with the music department at my school!
  • I actually joined choir to be able to go, and I ended up loving it, and looking back I wish I joined sooner!
  • flew through Buffalo airport
  • first time going without my family
  • we performed just outside of the World of Disney Store
  • stayed at Caribbean Beach after getting double booked at All Star music
  • I acted as a bit of a tour guide!
  • I tried to do something new ever day, and this includes the shark reef at Typhoon Lagoon!

Best of A Disney Obsession 2017 and Reader Survey!

Hello everyone! In today’s post I thought I would take a look back at the best of A Disney Obsession, 2017 edition! I’ll be sharing my 5 favourite posts from the year, as well as the 5 most popular blog post, and the 5 most popular videos. It’s fun to see the content that is most popular, and how that compares to the posts I liked the most. Plus, a reader survey at the end of the post that would mean a lot to me if you filled it out! Okay, without further ado let’s get started!

The best of A Disney Obsession

my 5 favourite posts

Disney & Disabilities– This post was so special to write, because it’s one of the biggest reasons I love Disney so much. It’s not something that gets talked about a lot, and I’ve had a lot of experience visting Walt Disney World with my sister, so I wanted to share! I also expanded this into a series of posts, featuring the disability requirements at each of the Walt Disney World posts.

We Bought a House– This post I had waited to write for almost 6 months! It was hard keeping this secret, and I can’t wait to share everything that comes with building our house and moving in with you! We haven’t heard anything from our builder, so we are thinking we will most likely move in Spring 2019. But I will keep you all updated!

Trip Recap: Calgary 2017– Ethan and I went on our first non-Disney vacation together last year! We both needed a vacation and had such a great time! It was Ethan’s first time seeing the mountains, and it was so much fun! I even vlogged a bit.

My Disney Bucket List– This was a fun post to write, and I have come of with more things to add to the list since it’s been posted! Maybe I’ll keep adding to the list and cross things off as I complete them!

My Wedding Planning Experience So Far– I really enjoyed sharing what wedding planning has been like so far!

Top 5 posts of 2017

Erin Condren Life Planner Haul– I love writing these posts and sharing my new planner for the year! It’s definitely a popular post, and I’m happy to be able share my planner with you!

We Bought a House Ethan and I did our best to keep this a secret (other than telling close friends and family), so I think a lot of people were intrigued when we announced this! We also shared the floorpan with you, and below is the concept art for the outside of our house!

2016 WDW Haul– I was surprised this video was so popular! I always have things that I pick up when I visit Walt Disney World, so I was happy to share what I brought back!

My Wedding Planning Experience So Far– This was a post series I knew I wanted to start after getting engaged, but I had no idea how much I would have to write in this post! If you missed it, we ran into a big problem with our venue. I’ll be back next month with another post in this series!

Disney & Disabilities– Again, I don’t think many people write about the accessibility side of Disney, and one of the reasons I wanted to start a blog in the first place was to share this information! I’m so happy that it was such a popular post.

This is Alex and her worker Megan.

Top 5 videos of 2017

My DVC Story- While this was posted to YouTube in 2016, it was my most popular video in 2017! I really just wanted to share our experience and try to explain Disney Vacation Club as clearly as possible (because it can be a little confusing)!

10 Tips for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party- I was quite proud of this video, and I would definitely watch it if I was heading to a Mickey’ Very Merry Christmas Party.

Erin Condren Haul- This video tends to be one of the most popular (or at least it has been the last two years), and I love sharing my new planner with you!

Disney Vlog Day 1 pt 1- I can’t believe one of my Disney vlog made the list! I’ve gone back and watched a few of the vlogs, and I’m so happy I captured those memories! I’m a little surprised that the “travel day” vlog was most popular, but I’m happy one of them made the list! It’s hard to believe that was over a year ago now!

Weekend Vlog #21  Wedding Dress Shopping- I’m not really surprised that this has been the most popular weekend vlog, and I’ve even gone back to watch it again to re-live trying on all of those dresses!

Reader survey!
