Woohoo! Next month, Chris and I will be in Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL! This will be each of our first times visiting the Florida Disney parks, and we’re so excited to be doing it together!
We have been working with a Disney travel agent who has booked our dining reservations and fast passes for us. So awesome! Some of the things we are most excited for are
- Eating lunch at Be Our Guest, a restaurant modeled after Beast’s castle
- Riding Rock n Rollercoaster (okay, this one’s allllll Chris)
- Walking around the Epcot World Showcase and dreaming about all the countries we want to visit together
- Taking in Liberty Square (we don’t have it in CA!)
- Going on a safari!!!!! (I CAN’T WAIT)
- Watching the Star Wars fireworks
We’re also so happy to be visiting Disney World during the annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. We have never attended the festival at California Adventure, so we’re stoked to be going to WDW during this time at Epcot!! Chris already has his heart set on a Le Cellier steak from one of the booths. This event might be one of the things we are most excited for—we got park hopper tickets so that we could take full advantage of it during as many days as possible!
While planning our trip, we watched a TON of Disney vlogs (shout out to Disney For 2 for being the best out there!!), read all the Disney Tourist Blog posts we could find, and poured over every restaurant menu. We wanted to make sure we made the absolute best out of our trip! We’ll be there for one week (Chris thinks it’s plenty of time, while I’m still begging to extend our trip).
This trip is especially magical for us because Disneyland is where Chris and I truly bloomed as a couple. We visited for the first time together during the first few months of our relationship, and ever since we have held Disneyland in a special place in our hearts. it is so wonderful to get to experience WDW as first-timers together, taking every inch of the parks in through fresh eyes. We’re itching to go!!!
I’m already planning my outfits, we got some new comfortable sandals, and Chris keeps asking when our Magic Bands will come in the mail. Are we eager, or what?
Thanks for reading! If you have any tips or tricks for navigating the parks, or if you want to share your favorite Disney World memories, send them our way!
