Favorite Attractions: Animal Kingdom

I will fully admit that Animal Kingdom is my least favorite park. It feels ridiculous even saying it because there are SO many things I love about Animal Kingdom. Regardless of all that, tho, I do have lots of favorites there and this post will share what I love to do during a day at Animal Kingdom.

Disneyland Birthday Trip

Turning 31 isn't exactly the most exciting thing, but we decided to make it more so by taking a trip to Disneyland! You may have read my post about planning a Disneyland trip last year, but that trip ended up falling through and we never got to go. Huge bummer because we were excited, but we'd already bought a 2-day Park Hopper ticket, so we knew we had to make it out there before the tickets expired. I won't go into ever last detail since you can read about a lot of it in that prior post, but a lot of our plans this time are different, so read along if you want to hear all about it. 🙂

Wandering Around WDW

There is plenty to see and do in Disney World without ever entering the park. My Instagram post yesterday about that really got me thinking and I bet a lot of folks think they need a park ticket to see and do everything Disney has to offer. Well I'm here to tell you that's not true.

Planning to Visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

This post is going to be about a different kind of magic - Harry Potter! Hubby and I are planning to spend the last full day we have in Orlando hanging out at Hogwarts, drinking Butterbeer, and riding the Hogwarts Express, so I'll give a little insight into what our plans are and what I've found in my enthusiastic research into this little 1-day jaunt away from Disney World.

Disneyland Plans

As many of you know, I am currently planning my first ever trip to Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. It’s my first trip to California and I am so excited! My husband has a work trip every year that spouses are invited to and this year we happen to be only 40 miles from Anaheim!! As soon as we found out, we knew we were going to make it happen.
