Over the weekend, I went to Orlando for the BlogHer 2017 conference with a few of my blogger friends. While being in Orlando, we took some time to experience the Disney Magic, and went to Walt Disney World. The Disney theme parks are a magical place. I got myself the iconic Minnie ears headband and embarked on walking into the parks. We started by going to Animal Kingdom and trying out, the new Pandora area base on the Avatar movies. A truly must see for anyone. This is probably one of the most amazing virtual rides I have been on. Then we hoped to Magic Kingdom, where we snapped these pictures.
Exploring the park made me feel like a six year old again. When me and my twin sister went to Disney for the first time. Thru out the years we have visited from time to time. But it had been a long while, I didn’t get to see Cinderella’s castle, but as always it did not disappoint, it is as magical as the first time I saw it.
It is high season at the moment. But I prefer to visit the parks in low season. This means after new years or after summer break. This you do in order to avoid the super long lines to the rides. Also you can download the Disney app and get +Fast Pass for up to three rides at a time, and you can book this 60 days in advance. (Just learned this tip on this trip!).
Also check below the fashion illustration I made of the girls and me as Minnie girls!
Some travel tips:
- Bring Sunscreen. Remember this is Sunny Florida, so some SPF is a must, along with a hat.
- Wear airy clothes and comfy shoes as there is a lot of walking!
- Bring a battery backup for your phone and cameras.
