DisneyWorld Days 6 & 7: Fun Times

Sunday we had planned on going to Downtown Disney all day since we didn't want to make Allyson come to the parks on her day off. Instead, she did end up coming to pick us up and we went to church with her and the rest of the family. After church we went back to their house to have lunch and play games. It was lots of fun. We then decided to go back to the hotel to go swimming. We swam for a while and played pool side trivia. Derek and I then left to go to Downtown Disney for dinner and shopping.

Monday morning we got up, packed our bags, and then went to another hotel for a meeting about the Disney Vacation Club, which we TOTALLY want to be a part of one day! When we got back to our hotel, we grabbed our bags and checked out :( we were definitely not ready to come home at all! We decided to have lunch before taking some pictures around the hotel. We stayed at All-Star Music and all the All-Star resorts have a kind of restaurant in them. Ours had this place that made BOMB ham and grilled cheese sandwiches. I kid you not I probably had 4 the whole week! So since we liked them so much we decided those would be our last meal there! After, we took more pictures!
All-in-all, it was a really fantastic trip and we've decided we are definitely a Disney family lol.Some of the best highlights of our trip are as follows: getting a free bottle of wine because it was our anniversary(we didn't drink it lol), spending time with our family, finding hidden mickeys, eating French food, deciding to learn French, seeing our Disney Characters(family tradition), and most importantly, just spending time with EACH OTHER!!!! I can't believe it's already been a year into our marriage, that's the best thing of all and we spent that special day together in the  most perfect way we could. We'll definitely be planning another trip to either Disneyland or DisneyWorld very soon :)

DisneyWorld Day 5: MAGIC KINGDOM

Alright seriously, what's not to love about this park?! It really is a magical place and I just love it so much. Surprisingly we didn't really have to wait too long for most of the rides, we made use of the fast passes and kinda just went where we wanted. There's a benefit to already having been there once. You know what you like and don't have to waste your time on things you don't like.
We didn't take a ton of pictures this day because we were just having too much fun to worry about photos lol. You really just get to enjoy yourself here. We didn't have to worry about acting like adults or what people would think of us. We just got to have fun! No stress from our lives back home, no time constraints, it was so RELAXING! This day was the actual day of our anniversary so it was just the perfect place to be on that special day. This was Saturday, and our last day in the parks.  I'll finish up the rest of our trip in  my next post.

DisneyWorld Day 4: EPCOT

I have to say that I think EPCOT might be one of my favorite parks. I love walking around to all the different countries to see the various cultures. The rides are interesting and it's just enjoyable. But really I just LOVE the countries. You really get to feel like you are traveling around the world. When Derek and I went here on our honeymoon, we rode all the rides first and by the time we got to the countires, it was too dark to take any pictures or really enjoy anything so we decided to do those first this time, after a few other things of course.
So there was our day in EPCOT. Another great thing about EPCOT is that our cousin Allyson works in this particular park so we got to see her throughout the day, which was also fun. I will have to say though, the only thing we haven't done in EPCOT is MissionSpace. The reason for this is I get awful motion sickness and even with the patches that I was using(which totally helped), we weren't sure they'd hold up on that specifc ride. I'm kinda bummed about that because we love riding the rides but that one was just a no-go. Well the next post is about the most magical place of all-THE MAGIC KINGDOM!!!!!!!!!
