This past weekend, I got on a plane and flew to Orlando, Florida…for a day. Sounds crazy right?! It was crazy…and adventurous, and fun, and magical. My dear friend David is a part of the Disney College Program and was able to get Kacey and me into the parks for a day. THANK YOU DAVID! Thank you for showing us the magic of Disney that you get to work with daily. It was so awesome getting to see you again! And hopefully we will see you soon, thank you for the memories x
Kacey and I landed in Orlando around 10am and finally got to our first destination, Hollywood Studios, a little before noon, where we met up with Dave. In Hollywood Studios, the first thing we rode on the Tower of Terror, and guys…it was TERRIFYING. I still CANNOT believe I went on it. But, it turned out to be one of my favorite rides. Then we saw a live performance of Beauty and the Beast which was magical. We met the queen of sass, Daisy Duck, and got to meet Buzz and Woody!
After Hollywood Studios, we took a bus over to my favorite park, Magic Kingdom. There’s something about that feeling you get when you first get a glimpse of Cinderella’s castle as you walk down Main Street that is simply MAGICAL. Even if you’ve been there before, each time you see it you get that same feeling. We walked up to the castle and watched “Dream Along With Mickey” and I witnessed Kacey falling in love with Peter Pan 😉 We met A TON more characters including Minnie, Donald, Goofy (my favorite), Cinderella, Tinkerbell in Pixie Hollow, and RAPUNZEL! I have been waiting to meet Rapunzel for like 5 years and I FINALLY got to. She is SO sweet and it truly was a dream come true. We rode Haunted Mansion, got Disney’s famous Dole Whip, and rode Pirates of the Caribbean. My favorite part about Magic Kingdom is what happens at night. Standing in front of Cinderella’s Castle and seeing “Celebrate the Magic” and the “Wishes” fireworks. Kacey and I then met up with David after his shift and some of his friends and watched the Electrical Parade. It was the PERFECT ending to the PERFECT DAY. My heart is full.
“Now I’m here, blinking in the starlight
Now I’m here, suddenly I see
Standing here, it’s, oh, so clear
I’m where I’m meant to be”
