My Second Trip to Walt Disney World (May 2007)

Hello friends, and welcome to another Disney trip recap! Continuing on in the series I started two weeks ago, I’m sharing everything I can remember about my second trip to Walt Disney World! I’ll also be as honest as possible about the experiences we had, and share anything that I learned from that trip! It’s hard to believe that this trip was already 10 years ago! Because it was the first time we had been back since I was a child (and didn’t remember much), we went all out this trip. We did all of the thrill rides, and spent so much time in the parks! I wasn’t sure when I would be back again, so I wanted to do it all!

The basics:

  • this trip was in May 2007
  • My immediate family: Mom, Dad, sister and me!
  • my sister and I planned this trip like crazy!
  • we stayed at Caribbean Beach
  • 10 day trip!
  • used the dining plan for the first time
  • ate at California Grill, Garden Grill, Cinderella’s Royal Table, Coral Reef Restaurant, Shutters, Sci-Fi Dine In
  • first time visiting Animal Kingdom!
  • went to Typhoon Lagoon for the first time
  • first time using the old Disability Access Card
  • Tip Learned: on long trips to Walt Disney World (a week or more) TAKE A BREAK!

If you’d like to hear more about this trip and see some pictures, check out the video below! I’m also sharing at least one thing I would have done differently during this trip if I had planned it now.

My First Trip to Walt Disney World (May 1997)

Hello friends! Today I thought I would start a new series of blog posts and videos, sharing recaps of all of the trips I’ve taken to Walt Disney World!

I’m going to try and talk about all of the things I remember, and put in pictures as well. Of course I won’t remember exactly what we did on what day with the exception of my most recent trip from last year, but I think it will be fun to share what I take from each of the different trips and what still sticks out to me. I have a feeling some of the things might seem stupid and weird that I still remember it, but visiting Walt Disney World is all about creating memories, no matter how big or small!

I’ve been to Walt Disney World 9 times, so this series will take a few months to cover all of my trips! I’m also trying to be a honest as possible, because not all of my trips have been perfect, and I’ve learned a lot along the way! I will also try and throw in some tips that I learned on each trip. I will also create a YouTube playlist where you can find all of the videos as they go up. Today I’m starting with my first trip to Walt Disney World. Okay, without further ado, let’s get started!

The basics

  • our trip was in May 1997
  • Cinderella Castle was a cake!
  • we stayed at All Star Music
  • it was a Wish trip for my sister
  • It included my Mom, Dad, sister, me and my Aunt and cousin
  • we also went to Universal Studios and Sea World
  • there were only 3 parks, as Animal Kingdom didn’t open until 1998!
  • We did the dinner show at the Polynesian!
  • I danced with Pinnochio during a parade!

Make sure to watch the video below to hear about the trip, and see some pictures! I also talk about some pretty random things that I remember 20 years later.
