First things first – if you’re new to this blog, you should know my little sister’s nickname is Worm. Blame my father and his inability to call his children by their real names.
I can’t believe my baby sister is 18. It was the age that first made me feel like I was old, and now it’s the age that I wish I could go back to because turning 26 in a few weeks sounds awful. ;) One of her Christmas / birthday presents this year was a girls trip to Disney!
We stayed at Coronado Springs Resort, which felt like a tiny piece of Mexico.
I probably wouldn’t stay there again because I’m partial to American food (read: picky beyond all reason), but this little dining area was so cute!
After we checked in, we took an Uber to the restaurant that heals all sorrows.
I’ve missed you, friend.
Thank you, kind waitress, for taking our photo and not raising an eyebrow when I asked for an extra Reese’s in my sundae.
If you’re ever in the Disney area and don’t care about the parks, at least go check out this restaurant in Disney Springs. Make reservations because it’s usually crowded, and order the rotisserie chicken because it’s GRAND.
Also get the tortilla chips.
We managed to fit every park in our two-day time frame, and if my iPhone step tracker tells the truth, we walked about 8 miles a day.
These really made me miss Andrew. ;)
You all know my anti-selfie opinions. The exceptions extend to ice cream bars at Disney World. ;)
I look forward to the day my future kiddos judge me for enjoying the breakfast at Disney World more than anything else.
Seriously came close to buying these. My husband has turned me into a Star Wars nerd.
That head burrowed in my mother-in-law’s side? That’s Alyssa, hiding from mechanical dinosaurs.
I hope you can click on this photo and zoom in on her face. It’s my favorite.
Expedition Everest remains my favorite ride ever.
If I lived in Florida, I’d like to work at Animal Kingdom and hang out with these guys all day.
I was feeling the pains of overeating at Epcot, so I didn’t take as many pictures. You knew I would have to capture the pizza though, right? ;)
If you go to Disney on or around your birthday, make sure they give you a pin to wear. Everyone will tell you happy birthday, and you’ll more than likely get free cake. If you’re as lucky as Alyssa, you might get a Happy Birthday song from four Italian guys bearing a cupcake at the Italian pizzeria. ;)
We had a blast, but I’m so thrilled to be home sweet home with my favorite faces! :)
Happy weekend, loves! :)
