Full House Goes To Disney World

Last week I was watching the Full House episodes where they go to Disney World. First it was so strange seeing how different it is now compared to back then. Second it was even stranger to think that when that was filmed Animal Kingdom was not even open yet. Now I am just so use to Animal Kingdom being one of the staples I sometimes forget it is the youngest park.

My Disney World Favorites Week Day 4: Kilimanjaro Safaris

Of all the things at Disney, Kilimanjaro safaris is one of the only if not the only you will never be the same each time you ride it. I love seeing all the animals.

Southern Belle Foodie

Dictionary.com defines Foodie as: a person keenly interested in food, especially in eating or cooking

I would say I am a foodie. I love trying new places and there are restaurants we go to just for the food, no matter how long the drive or wait is. I would even have to say our Disney Vacations are all about the food. I thought I would share some of my foodie favorites from the road and at home.

Goodbye Wishes

I have mixed feelings about Disney doing away with Wishes at the Magic Kingdom. While I love the nightly fireworks show and will miss it, I am also excited to see what they come up with next.  I think Disney has the best nighttime shows, so I can’t imagine this new show will be any different.  We are going in May right before Wishes says good bye so I will get to see Wishes one last time and see the Animal Kingdom’s Rivers of Lights for the first time all in one visit. 

I’m A Little Sad Today 

I am a little sad this morning; I am not going to lie.  The past two years on this first Saturday in May we have been going into Disney World for our vacation.  I thought I would be okay with not going this spring but it is turning out that I am not.  I want to see the Castle, The Tree of Life, and the EPCOT Ball.  I want to feel the pain in my feet from walking so much around the parks.  I want to taste the wonderful food at all my favorite restaurants, watch the evening firework shows and then go back to the hotel and crawl into that wonderful bed at Port Orleans.  Surprisingly I am even a little sad about missing the Flower and Garden Show.  I never really dreamed I would like it that much.  I have two Disney shirts sitting here with tags still on; I bought them when I thought we were going back this spring.  Now they are waiting to go just like me.   I need to get my Disney Side on! Hopefully a trip this fall will work out I am having Disney withdraws.
