Back in October Dave, Laura and I went to Walt Disney World (it was my first time) and when we got back, we gave away a trip to Walt Disney World Resort from Expedia.ca. Laura Coelho was our winner and last week she and her family headed there for a week. How was it? I turned over my blog to Laura today to share her experiences …
Going to Disney was always on our vacation wish list and having 2 young daughters who are obsessed with anything princess, made winning a trip to Disney, a dream come true – thank you again 91.5 The Beat for this amazing and unforgettable trip!
Disney truly is magical for kids and adults alike. We went to all 4 theme parks – Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom, plus one of their top ranked waterparks – Blizzard Beach! At the hotel, Animal Kingdom Lodge, we had giraffes and zebras mere feet away from our balcony.
One of the many highlights of the trip was being able to enjoy a character dining experience. We dined at the Akershus Royal Banquet Hall where Belle, Cinderella, Snow White, Ariel and Aurora (Sleeping Beauty) came by our table for a picture with the girls – talk about being in Disney Princess heaven! The girls had makeovers in the Bibidi Bobidi Boutique and were called princesses everywhere they went, I can definitely say, they truly believed they were princesses the whole time we were there …
The hotel had a large pool with a waterslide for the kids, that we enjoyed on our last day. The girls would have been perfectly content never coming home and even said they want to move there!
Going on this trip was more than just princesses and ice cream (and lots and lots and lots of walking 😉 ) it was an opportunity for us to bond and spend a week together away from the hustle of our busy lives making memories to last us a lifetime! There aren’t enough ‘thank you’s’ for that.
