My 9th Trip to Walt Disney World! (November 2016)

Hello everyone, I hope you are well! Welcome to the last Disney Trip Recap! I’ve actually already done a trip recap for this trip (because I was blogging at that point), but I thought it would be fun to revisit this trip about a year and a half later, to see how I remember that trip! I’m going to be sharing everything I still remember from that trip in the video below, and breaking down the main points in bullet form below that. Let’s get started!

My 8th Trip to Walt Disney World! (February 2015)

Hello friends, I hope you are well! Welcome back to another Disney trip recap! Today I am sharing everything I can remember from my 8th trip to Walt Disney World! From what I learned, to my favourite moments, I’m sharing it all! I will share a video below, and the main points of our trip below the video. Okay, let’s get started!

 

The Basics of the trip

  • first trip with DSLR’s
  • February 2015
  • was hot and got colder during the week
  • stayed at Caribbean Beach
  • went to Epcot on Ethan’s Birthday!
  • Ethan’s first time seeing Illuminations: reflections of Earth
  • ate at Via Napoli, 50’s Prime Time Diner, California Grill and Raglan Road
  • not on the dining plan- tried to keep track of food expenses
  • “worst” trip (more of an explanation in the video)
  • I was struggling with anxiety (final semester of college is so much fun!)
  • flights were a problem- Ethan didn’t have a seat on the first flight
  • we were given the wrong room number ๐Ÿ™
  • saw the Train Station opening show for the first time!
  • Keys to the Kingdom tour (I would HIGHLY recommend it!)
  • saw Festival of Fantasy for the first time
  • first time on Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

My 7th Trip to Walt Disney World! (May 2013)

Hello friends! I hope you are well! In today’s Disney post I’m sharing another recap! The trip I will be talking about today I took in May 2013, and it was just Ethan and I! I’m going to be sharing some pictures, the things that I still remember and the things that I learned from this trip, all in the video below! I’ll also be breaking down the main points of our trip below. Okay, let’s get started!

 

the video

The basics

  • May 2013, just Ethan and I
  • we drove with my Mom to Buffalo to save money
  • stayed at Port Orleans Riverside- a beautiful (but confusing) resort!
  • We were at the parks very close to opening every day! We would grab a coffee and head to the bus stop!
  • took breaks in the afternoon (and napped!)
  • Flower & Garden festival was happening!
  • We saw La Nouba for Ethan’s Birthday!
  • This trip was Ethans first time to Animal Kingdom!
  • Ethan still missed Illuminations because we headed back to the hotel during our Epcot day when I wasn’t feeling well
  • Ate at: San Angel Inn, The Plaza, Paradiso 37, 50’s Prime Time Diner, and Be Our Guest!
  • we were on the Disney Dining Plan
  • dinner times all over the place- my stomach wasn’t happy ๐Ÿ™
  • What I learned this trip: it’s ok to take a break! And try to schedule meals around the same time so you aren’t eating at a different time every day!
