1. I go to Disney
2. I eat and drink at Disney
3. I get to write about Disney
Gotta say... it's not terrible!
I'll be heading down to Walt Disney World in Florida next week to check out the new Pandora in Animal Kingdom and to get some notes and content for the new food reviews I have in mind for this blog (and I'll be sharing the posts with my Agency - Magical Adventures Travel, too!!)
Also, I'm much better at planning clients' trips than my own. I can't seem to stick with a plan any more. But my loss is your gain because I'll be floating around the parks, experiencing some attractions and restaurants so that I can better know what will be the right fit for YOUR trip.
Because I've been to "The World" a few times, it's not a big deal for me to miss the usual "MUST DO's" and focus on the new stuff.
Believe it or not, there are still SO many things that will be new to me. Mainly because I do have my favorites and often stick with them. But this trip, I promised I'd do MUCH more new-to-me things.
Some highlights of the plans (new-to-me are in bold):
Day One: arrive and head to EPCOT for dinner at Marrakesh (in the Morocco Pavilion in World Showcase). Belly Dancers!
Day Two: Animal Kingdom all day. Animal Kingdom ties for top spot with EPCOT for favorite park. It really is an oasis. It's NOT A ZOO and shouldn't be dropped from any plans. This is not your usual "animal park." There's a late breakfast at Tusker House that will give me VIP seating for Rivers of Light (hoping the rain holds off!). And of course, I'll be spending LOTS of time around Pandora!
Day Three: Animal Kingdom bright and early for a few hours and then heading over to Disney Springs. This is fast becoming a MUST visit for every trip. Plenty of dining and shopping options and it doesn't require a ticket! It's a lovely place to get a break between park days (and get some souvenirs too!). Lunch at Art Smith's Homecomin and dinner at Paradiso 37.
Day Four: I'm going to attempt 4 parks in 1 day. We shall see. Starting with Bon Voyage Character Breakfast at Trattoria al Forno (on the Boardwalk). Then skip over to Hollywood Studios, then romp over to EPCOT, then I'll see Cindes Castle for the first time all trip when I head over to Magic Kingdom. Finally, closing out the night at Animal Kingdom with some extra Pandora hours.
Day Five: I know I'm gonna be exhausted, but there's nothing like being Disney tired! Animal Kingdom for a little while. Then back to the resort to catch my Tragical Magical Express back to the airport to go home.
What started out as a fun hobby of planning Disney trips has EXPLODED into a full time career as a Travel Agent. Offering cruises, all-inclusive resorts, guided trips - as well as Disney, Universal, and other theme parks, my passion is to make EVERY trip a Magical Adventure.
