Fairytale On The Fantasy; A Trip Report- Our Arrival in Walt Disney World

Our flight down to Orlando was pretty uneventful, which is always a good thing. On this trip, we used a car service to bring us to Walt Disney World- after making a pit stop at the Character Warehouse. We have never been and really didn’t know what to expect. We planned to only spend a half hour and, thankfully, the line to check out was quick and the store isn’t huge so we were able to find what we wanted and waited on a pretty short line. We picked up mostly T-shirts (that were all less than $10), iPhone cases, Minnie Ears, sweatshirts, and I grabbed a Kate Spade tote and clutch. Continue reading

Taking the Time to Smell the Flowers, A Trip Report- Squeezing It All In

The last day of any Disney vacation is never fun- but we try to take the sting out of leaving when we can. After our bags were dropped off with Bell Services we walked over to the World Showcase entrance to Epcot and took a quick family picture before heading over to our favorite World Showcase restaurant, Via Napoli. Today was just the 5 of us- which is time Mike and I know we need to treasure as we are fully aware we won’t get these opportunities for much longer. Continue reading
