Disney World is one of my favorite places on planet Earth.
There’s just something magical about walking right down the middle of Main Street USA toward Cinderella’s castle, while the aroma of cookies, popcorn, and ice cream fills the air. I don’t just love Main Street USA, I also love the attractions, shows, food, and the memories from our past trips.
My love for Disney World partially comes from the way it makes me feel. Going there feels a lot like coming home. There is a happiness that I feel after entering Disney World that is unexplainable. It is my happy place. It is a place I forget about the stresses of the real world & feel like a kid again. I believe in magic again. And happy endings.
Disney World is located in Orlando, FL and offers 4 theme parks:
- Magic Kingdom
- Disney’s Hollywood Studios
- Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
Known for Cinderella Castle and the throwback charm of Main Street USA, Magic Kingdom is my personal favorite. There is so much to see and do in its six iconic lands including classics like Splash Mountain, Peter Pan’s Flight, it’s a small world, Buzz Lightyear, 7 dwarves Mine Train coaster, Pirates of the Caribbean, Jungle Cruise, Haunted Mansion, Winnie the Pooh ride, Dumbo, etc… and the fireworks here are worth staying up late for!
This park recently got a huge upgrade with their new Toy Story Land & Star Wars Land. Plus there are lots of characters to meet here (Pluto, Mickey, Minnie, Chip, Dale, etc…) and shows (Indian Jones Stunt Show, Disney Jr Dance party, etc..), and then the 2 classic thrill rides: Tower of Terror & Rock N’ Roller Coaster. My kids love this park as much as Magic Kingdom.
This park is gorgeous, and not just a zoo. There’s rides, shows, walk through exhibits, characters, playgrounds and more. The Safari ride is a favorite of mine, the Lion King Show and Finding Nemo show are both excellent. Two of my favorite thrill rides are located here: Flight of Passage in Pandora: World of Avatar (there is not a ride like this anywhere else I’ve ever experienced) and Expedition Everest roller coaster.
Epcot is best known for its iconic “Golf Ball” (or Spaceship Earth ride) and is the only park that you can meet Anna & Elsa and ride a Frozen ride. My kids love the Frozen highlights here & the older they’ve become, the more they love Epcot as a whole.
Then 2 water adventure parks are Disney’s Blizzard Beach and Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon.
There are also 24 Disney World resort choices, 81 holes of golf on five courses, 2 full-service spas, Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports complex, and finally Disney Springs, an entertainment-shopping-dining complex.
You will never run out of things to do at Disney World.
Part of our job will be to help you narrow down the perfect time of year to travel for your family/group, the best Disney Resort to stay at, how many days you want to spend at the theme parks, where you’d like to eat, & what rides you want to prioritize.
