My View One Year Ago

This was my view one year ago. That was a great trip. This year I already have one Disney Trip down and one more on the way, plus a Disney Cruise. 2018 will be the year of Disney for this Southern Belle.

35 ‘Ears

Last Monday my parents celebrated 35 years of marriage. And now that my mom has been given her surprise anniversary gift, if I had a mountain top to shout it from I would. I am going on a Disney Cruise! I am so excited and we are going to Disney World again. We are not going till much later this year but I have something to look forward too. My aunt and cousins will be going to Disney World with too. I’m super excited to see what a Disney Cruise is like, I have heard they are amazing!

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.
