My Disney World Vacation Blog

This blog will be broken up into small chunks, so you can easily follow along with the planning process. I will also blog during our vacation and try to offer as many tips as possible. I am by no means a Disney World professional. I have not been to WDW in over 10 years, but I do frequent Disneyland (Annual Passholder and we go a lot!)

Background Info: My daughter and I are avid Disney fans. Living in Southern California, we go to Disneyland every chance we get. The men (my husband and son) will go, but would probably prefer not to. So we leave them at home most of the time. We both have Annual Passes and try to soak up as much Disney as we can handle. Our family started going to Disneyland regularly since my daughter was 3, and now she is almost 28. We go many times a year now!

My daughter did the Disney College Program, she worked in Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom. This spot fit her perfectly! Everyone who knows her would agree! She worked on Peter Pan and It’s a Small World. She absolutely loved it. She is a people person and loves interaction. As part of her job rotation she also got to do Fireworks crowd control often (many others did not want to do it – so she would volunteer!). She loves WIshes! (the firework show). She saw it so many times that she knows it by heart! When we found out that Wishes was going away – we had to plan a trip to go see it one more time (or maybe a few more times)! At first it was a pipe dream, but we found a way to make this trip became a reality..

This blog will include pre-trip planning, travel tips, and our actual vacation! Make sure you read all the posts 🙂 There is a link at the bottom of the page, under the blog posts to view older posts!

Express Transportation! Can’t wait to try this!

Disney has a new park-to-park transportation service that started last fall. I am totally going to be buying this add-on. Basically it is a bus that takes guests from park to park from an in-park location. The buses are in the backstage area, and travel back roads...

Flying a Red-Eye

Yes, we are taking a red-eye to Florida. I am getting more and more anxious about it. What if I don't sleep? What if some noisy, snoring man sits near us? What if? What if?? I am going to drive myself crazy over this. We upgraded to More Space seats on JetBlue, which...
