|Arrival at The Magic Kingdom was a euphoric moment|
Prior to the trip, I played a game with listeners to guess the weight of the cases. Admittedly, in hindsight - yes I took too many items of clothing but I live and hopefully learn! On the outbound trip the prize was won by Caroline Gray (her guess was 39.5kgs and the actual was 39.3kgs) and on the return trip Kevin Curtis Allen (actual weight was 52.kg).
The hotel I stayed in for the initial leg of the trip was All Star Movies. I must say that I was impressed with the room. It was clean, comfortable and had sufficient storage for my luggage! We chose to not have housekeeping had this resulted in a $50 gift card for our 6 night stay. If I had to say one negative about the room - it would be I found it a little dark.
During the first week I had at Walt Disney World, I was able to visit all four parks,as well as Typhoon Lagoon. The crowd levels where not too horrendous and we used the Fast Pass Plus system to ensure when we had used our three pre-booked fastpasses that we obtained a further to enable us to ride without long waits. Alternatively, if we saw an attraction with a short queue - we rode.
A big highlight was visiting the dress shop at Disney Springs with my friend Katherine. We had such fun trying on all the dresses! I will write up and share pictures on a separate post.
Another highlight was the food and no doubt I will be talking about this for many weeks to come! A big mention must be the carrot cake cookie which not longer resembles a cookie but a monster double decker slab of cake with frosting inside!
Something new for me was Toy Story Land. It is such a fun place to be and the new attraction - Slinky Dog Dash - is a big hit. That is about it now for this weeks post. If you want to get in touch with us, you can:
