Staying on Property

Staying on Property

Looking out our window.  Such a beautiful view!

One of the advantages is not driving to the park.  You hop on a bus or the monorail and it takes you right to the doors of the park of your choice.  It is so nice.  

In the lobby of Animal Kingdom Lodge.

At one of the pool at the Lodge.  So fun.  
If you can swing it STAY on property.  What an experience it is.  You can often times get great great deals.  This past time we went, we got 40% off our stay which is awesome.  We stayed at Animal Kingdom Lodge again because it is so amazing.  We keep wanting to try somewhere else, but we love it so much there we keep going back.  The pool is awesome, the animals are amazing the s'mores every night by the pool is so fun.  There is something so magical waking up looking out your window and seeing Zebras and Giraffes while eating your breakfast.  So fun!


One of the best rides in all of Disney World is at Hollywood Studios, Toy Story Ride.  Oh my goodness, so so fun!  However, you need to run straight to the ride and get a fast pass first thing there.  Sometimes the wait is 100 minutes which is crazy.  We have never waited in any lines because we always take advantage of the fast pass option.  For the rides that smaller children can't ride we also take advantage of the rider switch pass which is awesome too!

Sometimes you get lucky!

So FUN!!!

Sometimes you get lucky!  As we were sitting down for an amazing spread for Breakfast at 1900 Fare the sweet waitress asked how old our Emmy was.  We told her she had just turned one.  Just a few minutes later she returned with sick gourmet cupcakes for all of our children saying that they all had a birthday at some point this year so they all needed one. It was so cute and such a fun surprise.  Super yummy too!  Also, be sure to grab a birthday pin or anniversary pin right when you get in the park, or if you are staying on property they will have them when you check in.  You will be sure to get birthday wishes all day long if you do.  It is so fun for kids!

Our Newest Disney Trip

We had such a great time this year going back to Disney.  We had a year off.  
We missed it.  The kids are at great ages to enjoy and take advantage of pretty much everything they have to offer.  

We spent some time at the beach before we went and then 5 days at Disney.  It is always such a blast.  We love watching the faces as the experience every thing there.  So fun!
