What a fun little getaway we had in Disney World just a few weeks before Christmas. Our Christmas gift from my Florida parents was a 2 night stay at the Port Orleans Riverside Resort (my favorite!) and 2 days at the parks – SO MUCH FUN!
The Best part was that Adelaide turned 5 in Disney World – doesn’t get much cooler than that. AND Mickey Mouse himself left a surprise basket of treats and gifts on her hotel bed the morning of her birthday – thanks Mickey!
For the first time ever we got to attend Mickey’s Christmas Party and Parade …and it really was magical. Not only did it snow, but the castle was lit up in the most spectacular display of Christmas lights we’ve ever seen!
We rode Space Mountain, Peter Pan, Winnie the Pooh, Buzz Lightyear, the teacups, and Adelaide, Frankie, and Lily got to dance with Polar bears and Santa’s Elves at the Christmas party.
The Next Day we went to Hollywood Studios!
Annnd we basically spent the entire time at Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge! 😉
As a Star Wars fan, this was unbelievable!! The details were amazing, it felt like you were on another planet…we flew the Millennium Falcon, got interrogated by Storm Troopers, walked past Kylo Ren (*cough Ben Solo), and drank blue and green milk (with rum!)
Unfortunately we couldn’t fast pass Rise of the Resistance, and you didn’t even have the option of waiting in line, so I guess that just means we have to go back! 🙂 (ps I nerded out big time and rocked Leia hair)
Quick trip – but as always we had a blast! Can’t wait to go back!
