I wanted to do a simple and sweet blog post on our trip to Disney. I am originally from Florida, so Disney was in my backyard for most of my life. It would be a strange year when I was little if we didn’t go to Disney at least a few times. I think the last time I counted, I’ve been more than 50 times. When you’re only about an hour and a half away, it makes a great weekend trip. But, up until our recent trip, I hadn’t been back to Disney in years. We did Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios this trip. BUT – my favorites are a tie between Harry Potter World and Islands of Adventure.

I always wear themed clothing when I head to Disney. I mean, how can you not? When I saw this set, I knew it had to come to Disney with me. I’m also linking the shirt (here) I wore the first day in Disney (y’all saw it on my insta story).
Where We Stayed:
We stayed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge this time. Just a quick forewarning about Disney resorts – you will pay a lot of $$$ for a pretty small room. Yes, it is nice to be so close to the parks and to have a shuttle. But, growing up, we always stayed at less expensive hotels and drove to Disney. It really depends on what’s important to you and how much money you want to spend. Don’t get me wrong – Animal Kingdom Lodge is beautiful and we did have a safari view – but don’t expect a huge room like you would get other resorts.
Where We Ate:
We mainly ate in the park for breakfast and lunch. I always try to get to the park right when it opens so we can run to the most popular rides. It’s how we always were able to ride Space Mountain and Rockin Roller Coaster without waiting 2 hours. Our hotel had a highly recommended restaurant, Sanaa, that we had to check out. The restaurant features African/ Indian cuisine and has been on the Food Network. They are known for their Naan and it is SO worth ordering.
Orlando as a city really has so much more to offer than just Disney. I love Disney Springs and Downtown Disney. We didn’t stay for very long this trip, so we didn’t get to do much other than Disney. If you have any questions about Disney or Orlando in general, feel free to comment or email me.
