As you know Walt Disney World in Florida, is one of my favourite places – well it’s my second home! I feel so comfy there, and always have an amazing holiday with lots of new memories and photos. It’s always on my mind, and I’m so envious of people that live close by. So thought would do a list of my favourite’s!
Park: Magic Kingdom
Magic Kingdom Lands: Main Street / Adventureland / Tomorrowland
Magic – Pirates of the Caribbean / Splash Mountain / TTA
Epcot – Spaceship Earth / Soarin’ (Although I am not such a fan of the new one)
Hollywood Studios – Tower of Terror / Star Tours
Animal Kingdom – Kilimanjaro Safaris (although I preferred the old version as high lighting poaching is important)
Restaurant: I am stuck on this one. I used to love Kona Café for breakfast but they took away the Big Kahuna, but I still like the restaurant. I also really enjoyed California Grill and Teppan Edo on the last trip
Character Meal: Ohana breakfast
Bar: Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto
Transport: Monorail / Boat
Parade: Electrical Parade (sad times)
Character meets: Minnie and Mickey (but had a great Daisy meet at Epcot, and I loved our Pocahontas at Animal Kingdom!)
Epcot Pavilion: Mexico
Things to do: Backstage tours, and new photos!
How about you? What are you favourite’s? Let me know!
My last holiday was a Disney Cruise, it was our first ever cruise and nothing short of amazing! We chose the Western Caribbean itinerary, so we stopped at Mexico, Grand Cayman, Jamaica and Disney’s Castaway Cay.
We chose a room with a balcony, to take advantage of the views. So glad we did! The room was plenty big enough for the two of us. I like that we could put the cases under the bed, and the spilt bathroom / shower room.
The ship we sailed on was the Disney Fantasy. Just decks and decks of prettiness, and all so well maintained. There wasn’t a speck of dirt or dust anywhere! Cast Members were attentive and reliable, I felt like a celebrity! Your stateroom is cleaned twice a day – including a turn down service, with chocolates and flanimals left each night.
There was plenty to do besides just eat 24/7! We played Shuffleboard for the first time. There was the Midship Detective Agency – I don’t care if it was based for the kids I loved it! There was the pools, films, shows, activities, lounges, Star Wars Day at Sea – and to fit all this in between your Port Adventures! (the activities you book with Disney on your port stops).
All in all, there was not one bad thing about the cruise, and I am wishing and hoping with all my might that I get to go on another in the future! I would love to try all of the ships. Also we went on a Disney cruise as a couple, with no kids. We did get questioned and people thought we was crazy! But hey, there was 7 lounges, a cocktail of the day, adults only pool and parts of decks…
AND I finally got to visit Castaway Cay – Disneys private island in the Bahamas! Was literally a dream come true.
So… here goes. I have read and wandered nosily around other peoples blogs for a while now. After careful consideration, I’ve decided to start my own.
The older I have got, the more I have enjoyed holidays and travelling. Nothing makes me happier than looking, planning and booking a holiday. I think Wanderlust is one of my favourite words, and I love the meaning. So my basis will be that, plus days out on the weekends, reviews and anything that takes my fancy!
One of my favourite places in the world is Walt Disney World, I know it sounds like a cliché… but it is true! I have been visiting since I was 9 years old, I’m now 31! I have a lot of happy memories there, including my surprise proposal in front of Cinderella’s Castle last May!
I have had some amazing holidays over the last few years including Norway to see the Northern Lights, Bruge, Iceland and a Disney Cruise. Maybe I will do individual blogs for each trip.
For now, this is the beginning – and I have a Walt Disney World trip coming up on the horizon!
