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!

My Sixth Trip to Walt Disney World

Hello everyone and welcome back to another trip recap! Today I’m sharing everything I can remember from my 6th trip to Walt Disney World from May 2012! I’ll also be sharing anything I learned from this trip, and share pictures in the video below! I’ll be laying out the main points of the trip in point form, and go into more detail in the video. Okay, let’s get started!

The basics:

 

  • May 2012
  • only a few days- was a larger Florida trip- went to the Kennedy Space Centre, Universal and Sea World
  • first trip with Ethan! My family went as well ๐Ÿ™‚
  • stayed at Pop Century
  • Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Hollywood Studios
  • got a picture taken in the rose garden- Ethan wanted to propose there but the hub expansion removed it! We actually wandered around the night we got engaged because he was looking for it!
  • Alex was sick for the Disney section of the trip
  • went to Hollywood & Vine for the Fantasmic package
  • waiter forever for Fantasmic and it almost got rained out!
  • also ate at Tony’s Town Square and Garden Grill

This trip was memorable for me because it was Ethan’s first trip to Walt Disney World! It was fun to show him what I love in the parks, and get him hooked :D. Spoiler alert, he’s been on every trip since! It was a short trip so it left us with still a lot to see!
